Re: [OPEN] Short Poetry Collection 136 - rap

Re: recording help needed

I'm not a Mac user either. If it's just the playback sound that isn't working then try Edit | Preferences | Devices and make sure it's addressing the correct playback device. I think the Yeti also functions as a playback device(?), so it means that your system now has two sound outputs - and it's pr...

i have done the edits for the reader on section 28, but cannot do them on 27, so it would be great if someone else could record this poem?
Hi Carolin,
I'd be happy to record this one.

Re: ACX Audio Submission Requirements

Hi Ruth, Thank you for that - extremely useful. I was going to do some similar tests but you saved me the trouble. My Change Tempo kludge shouldn't be relied on for anything important, it seems! Yes - rms requires caution! The guy who wrote that article speaks as a music producer - I think it's prob...

Re: ACX Audio Submission Requirements

I'm not sure why that 30 sec limit on Wave Stats is there - even if it's doing all the calculations in memory. I may play with this more as a learning project for Audacity plugins... There is a trick that you can use to get round the time limit. Use Effect | Change Tempo... and reduce the length of ...

Re: ACX Audio Submission Requirements

RMS is 'Root Mean Squared'. Think of it as a way of measuring the average volume. Peak value is the highest point - literally the peak value of the waveform. Noise floor is the volume level of your sound when you're not speaking ie the volume of the background noise of your recording environment and...

Re: Does a Smart Tablet make noise? (no it doesn't)

My experience with OTG is very hit-and-miss, so I'm not surprised. The more I think about this, the more I suspect that it's a dirty power problem. If the 1kHz signal is getting in to the USB power wire (or the ground) inside the tablet then extra shielding won't help. The noise would then conduct u...

Re: Does a Smart Tablet make noise? (no it doesn't)

You found one - excellent! Let us know if it works. Yours is a little different to mine. I've just done some more surgery on mine - I used a scalpel to remove the plastic cover on the edge connector. If anyone else has this type [Samsung Galaxy Tab 2] and wants to experiment, you'd need to add some ...

Re: Does a Smart Tablet make noise? (no it doesn't)

USB being behind it really makes a lot of sense. I'm using the USB cable that came with the Yeti itself combined with a low end OTG. Are there any keywords that would help me hunt down shielded products? I don't think you'll find one. I've just cut open my own OTG adaptor to marvel at its poor cons...

Re: Does a Smart Tablet make noise? (no it doesn't)

Thanks for the sample, it makes things much easier - scrap my earlier idea about insufficient power. As others have said, it's a 1kHz frequency (which also shows up as harmonics). It's precise and constant which means that it's almost certainly coming from the USB (1kHz is a key sync frequency for U...

Re: Does a Smart TAblet make noise?

I've experimented without much luck - Android is way behind the competition when it comes to USB audio. If you're getting otherwise decent audio from the Yeti then you're almost there. Try the obvious things like moving between rooms to see if it varies environmentally. I wonder if the tablet is str...
