Peter, of course you are right. The effective frequency is half the sample rate. My bust. But, I still think 22khz is fine for voice recordings. Per http://www.paranormalghost.com/evp_frequency_ranges.htm The range of frequencies that young, healthy adults can hear is between about 20 Hz to about 14...

Also, just spot checked a few of the books I have downloaded in 64kbps (zip files). First chapters of Chip's American Indian Fairy Tales are 22khz also (checked 128kbps file and it was 22khz also - like mine). Little Princess and Road to Oz also seem to be in 22khz looking at the 64kbps. I loaded ch...

Kara,

I'm not going to do a new version until we know there is a problem with 22.05. I have so many files out there with this, that it will be a long time to fix them all.

99.9% sure that 22.05 is safe. Yes, 48 can throw off some players, because their range is up to 44.1. BTW, the 64kbps files that archive.org creates all downsample to 24khz (except for mine and a few others which were already at 22khz - these it leaves the same.) We may want to make the technical sp...

Kara, bit depth is just like bit depth in photos. For photos more bits = more color range, for sound more bits = more headroom or sound range soft to loud. 16 bit is more than enough for what we are doing. If you go to 24 bit, you can get more signal with less noise, but then you have to resample to...

I have downsampled all of my recordings at 22, as this is "standard" voice sample rate (above 22, and really a normal human can't even hear). I didn't realize we had a problem with this. If you are going to resample any of mine, just let me know, and I will save a new version from the original 24bit...

I'm willing to do another voice mashup, if we can get 3 or 4 more voices doing the one Chip and FoxintheStars has done.

Actually, I am a total math/engineer geek, and so I had to go do the calc:

(1568 - 596) / (14.9 - 11.28 ) = 268 days

So you will really catch up in under a year!

Chapter 1 Done! 15:50 3.62MB How can this be? Shouldn't a 16 minute reading be around 15 megs in size...? http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f31/Cabin_Icons/Emoticons/huh.gif 32kbps not 128kbps... that explains it. Don't know if Vee has the ability to export at 128, but it would be better than upsam...
