Re: (SOLO)The Tour of Dr. Syntax by William Combe-ans

Canto 25 in which Dr. Syntax dreams of a battle between commerce and literature. I think the "Cocker" who represents trade in this canto is the author of Cocker's Arithmetik but a lot of the other names didn't ring a bell for me. It goes on a bit... 28:32. https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/tourofd...

Re: (SOLO)The Tour of Dr. Syntax by William Combe-ans

No Persons from Porlock interrupted Canto 23 which is PL OK! :lol: Ha! I worked at the site of Bury Castle near Porlock a long long time ago... The P from P was a sort of running joke amoungst the team members. Canto 22 is fixed. Thanks for spotting the problems, Barbara. https://librivox.org/uploa...

Cantos 22 and 23. They include what could be the publisher's motto:

"Success depends on writing well
Booksellers bow when volumes sell."

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

The Audacity Plugin is ReplayGain Yes, that plugin will give the gain above or below the target but doesn't have an option to fix the file -- at least, not the version i have installed. I like mp3gain because it does both. Maybe it's an OS X thing? Phil Chenevert's YouTube video on the topic shows ...

Re: (SOLO)The Tour of Dr. Syntax by William Combe-ans

Normalization brings the peak amplitude up or down to the desired level. The resulting mp3 files are of a consistent loudness... but as you pointed out they're actually too loud! I run Audacity on a Mac, which doesn't have a gain plug-in. So, on your advice I downloaded mp3gain and now understand th...

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

I was having a problem with excessive loudness (over 89 db). The most recent version of Audacity for OS X doesn't include an mp3gain plug-in. I eventually found a standalone application that works fine (although a plug-in would be more convenient): http://projects.sappharad.com/mp3gain/ Hurrah! Adrian

Loudness in Audacity

The LV wiki suggests that files should be roughly 89 db.

Is there a way to determine loudness in Audacity?

Thanks.

Re: (SOLO)The Tour of Dr. Syntax by William Combe-ans

Adrian, this section is 3dB above 89. I downloaded and checked 3 more of your sections and noticed (for the first time) that they were also 3 to 4.5 dB above 89. I was told on a previous project which I was proof listening, that that is nothing to worry about on a solo project as long as the volume...
