Re: [OPEN] Short Poetry Collection 136 - rap

Last week's weekly poem reminded me of this one - I thought it was quite well known, but it doesn't seem to be in the database.

Re: [Weekly Poetry] September by Madison Cawein

Hi MaryAnn Thank you for your kind words. Yes that's it - I'm not slow, I'm meditative! On the of a vintage thing. I've listened back - it's actually a slight pause which I try to insert where consecutive words end and begin in the same sound. I don't like running words together in poetry unless it ...

Re: Odds clicks and pops that aren't clipping...

Rachel, As well as answering tovarisch's question can you describe your recording setup [laptop/pc, mic type, operating system, recording software]. This is difficult to diagnose because, presumably, the preceding few minutes of the recording are fine, so your overall setup is probably OK. The inter...

Re: [Fortnightly Poem] Wreck of the Hesperus, Longfellow-mas

Hi MaryAnn, I didn't know where the expression Wreck of the Hesperus came from; I thought it must be some historical reference. Now I know! Thank you for sharing your family story. I hope my reading does it justice. URL: https://librivox.org/uploads/maryannspiegel/hesperus_longfellow_ik_128kb.mp3 Du...

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.
