Re: Making your reading sound Great

The noise was not too bad - although one track was noticeably noisier. The best thing is to find out what is causing the noise - too much gain through a pre-amp or the sound-card's own pre-amp, insufficient mic gain (what mic do you use?), noise from outside your recording space, distance to mic whe...

Re: The all-new "HELP! I have an Audacity problem" thread

I've just downloaded the new Audacity (2.2.1) onto my MacBook, but I can't get the De-Clicker and De-Esser plugins to work. I recently installed 2.2.1 on Windows, and it works for me. Did you enable it (Effects/Manage)? This is the problem - I downloaded both and put them into the "plugin" folder -...

Re: New Forums Help Thread

The problem for me is that the smaller fonts and the garish colours mean i can't easily use the new format. Maybe we can ask the admins to up the font size a little. This is how its done in Prosilver . EDIT: Wrong link. Also, depending on what operating system or browser you use, you can adjust the...

Re: New Forums Help Thread

The problem for me is that the smaller fonts and the garish colours mean i can't easily use the new format. I have very poor eyesight which changes from day to day - since an operation 4 weeks ago. It may take up to a year for it to improve, and that's not guaranteed. This means I'm less likely to ...

Re: Quotes Within Text

I've found that doing character voices is easier than you may think. You only need to change the voice slightly for it to be effective. So just a slight change in pitch or just a small difference in timbre will make it clear.

[OK now]Uploader Not Working

I can't get the uploader to upload! It gets the file OK but won't start the green bar uploading. Tried several times and re-booted - no good.

Re: Too new to start PLing? For 1-Minute Tests?

Hope I'm not butting in and talking gibberish - but you need to record some material yourself first and then PL (Proof Listen) it and make improvements to the reading and the technical standard of the recording. Then you will have learnt and taught yourself a hell of a lot. Be your own worst critic ...
