I did hit one word which I am pretty convinced is a mis-scan. I have recorded it as is, paused, said that I reckon it should read something else, read the sentence in question again with the word I want at the end, and then carried on. Please feel free to edit as you wish! J. Jim Can you listen? @ ...

Goodness! I'm glad you made me think of this as it reminds me of a song that brought a tear to my eyes and a lump to my throat every time I heard it. The song was sung by Edith Piaf and I can't remember the name of it at the moment. It's a song about a couple who rent a room to be alone together but...

Greetings Zem I think if you are looking to help then maybe you should think about playing to your strengths. What do you like doing? Well, you like listening to audio books and proof listening is one of the things we need very much indeed. We have different levels of proof listening and one of the ...

dtg ...... I downloaded and installed skype but in testing the audio quality ... it is choppy and distorted .... Any tweaks you can recommend ? Linux FC7 OS and a Samson condenser mic It's a huge resource hog so one thing that helps is to close down as many other applications as possible. Also, its...

I'll take that as a compliment. Jim, you and I differ on the definition of lightly edited. 3 hours, 25% of the raw audio removed. Several sections moved around to facilitate the flow of the conversation. Many ummms and pauses removed. You and I have 2 different (but equally good) production styles....

I really enjoyed it too and congrats to Sean for the editing.
He's edited with quite a light touch but it's really helped with the flow.
It was a fun conversation which went on for just a little more than an hour and the chat never flagged for a moment.
Very enjoyable to take part in.

We're done. Now for massive editing. Thanks D.E. for joining Jim and I. Look for a new LV community podcast some time in the next few days. :) It will be massive editing indeed. All 3 us waxed most lyrical upon many subjects at great length. Very rarely were we on subject so not much of it may appe...

Thanks!

Oooh, I like the sound of that, "I need to be a part of this one".
It makes it sound like it's the hip and groovy thing to do - where the in crowd are.
So, part 4 is now yours.

Enjoy!

It's a close call between the Sound Editor 6 version and the Audacity. I might just go for the SE6. The last one has too many digital artifacts in it and just sounds too weird. As for fans - yup, what Robert said in last message - compressed air often helps - also from the sound I'd reckon you are c...

Good stuff!
You're down for 8 and 10
