Re: 1 minute test

No sweat dude :D

One other thing: is the background noise from the audio interface acceptable/noticeable?

Now looking for what to record. So much choice...

Re: 1 minute test

Okay, managed to get Checker working on a Mac Core 2 Duo laptop running Snow Leopard.

Recorded the test sample again:

SOLVED - Checker Software for old OSX Mac (Snow Leopard)

Last week I mentioned in my 1 minute test - needed again as all my 'stuff' has changed - that I couldn't get the little Checker software to work with Snow Leopard on a Mac Core 2 Duo (the white one). That ancient laptop was given to me, and doesn't have a single document on it, not even email. It's ...

1 minute test [OK]

I did a couple of snippets here some time ago. Suddenly, overnight, I now have different 'stuff', so everything has changed and needs to be tested again. The problem: Checker software won't run on my old Apple OSX software. Says a newer version of OSX is needed. When I last tried recording, I always...

Re: OPEN Short Poetry Collection 174 - rap

Probably a typo at transcribing. That's why scanned texts are preferred. :D Yes, definitely, show me your new magic powers with ReaFIR! Nope, I'm not smart enough to do this :oops: Tried and failed. It isn't that important anyway. Just a bit of fun. So, just hoping to replace the original text link...

Re: OPEN Short Poetry Collection 174 - rap

Hi Rapunzelina Thanks for proof listening. Much appreciated. The weird thing is that this link https://fromtroublesofthisworld.wordpress.com/2014/12/10/sonnet-vii-by-hartley-coleridge/ does indeed say "nor rays of promise cheats the pensive gloom". So, I should probably upload again and use this as ...

Re: [Weekly Poem] A Solar Eclipse by Ella Wheeler Wilcox -

Thank you Tomas and Bubba. :thumbs: Bubba, Checker gives a volume of 86.7 dB on your file and Amplifying by +2 gives the required volume of 88.2 dB :) Thanks for the PL Erin. :D Ooopss! I ran it through the checker and it gave a green light with zero errors. I'll be separated from the gear for a wh...

Re: [Weekly Poem] A Solar Eclipse by Ella Wheeler Wilcox -

At last! Managed to do my initial short poem as recommended by Librivox. I used the 'Checker' and the volume was too low again. So, whacked all the knobs up to max and re-rendered. I'll have to read up on this volume thing. Think I might be too far away from the microphone. https://librivox.org/uplo...

Re: Making your reading sound Great

I did my Librivox test, got distracted, and still haven't done the short poem Librivox Admin recommend doing. Would like to give Reaper a try for that :D Cheers Bubba A short poem would be a good test for using Reaper from the free trial download. You could record it several times and edit between ...

Re: Making your reading sound Great

As far as LibriVox is comcerned , the big advantage in using Audacity is that it is free and most people on the forum can help you with any problems you have. If you aren't new to recording and use another program - go ahead with it. But if you are new , use what's on offer , find out how you recor...
