Would anyone be able to add a link to https://librivox.org/the-phenomenology-of-mind-volume-1-by-georg-wilhelm-friedrich-hegel/ on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Phenomenology_of_Spirit ? I would do it myself but wikipedia editing is a mystery to me :shock: Hi, I've done the change on wikipedia....

Loss of the Sultana [FIXED]

Hi, not sure if this was intentional, but "Loss of the Sultana" has the author in the title https://librivox.org/loss-of-the-sultana-by-chester-d-berry-by-chester-d-berry/ So the archive page will read: "LibriVox recording of Loss of the Sultana by Chester D. Berry by Chester D. Berry" Cheers mahne

Re: Trying to find some very specific editing directions?

Adding that audacitys noise removal tool has changed since then (better now), so even if you found numbers from back then, they wouldn't make sense with a new audacity version. And I would strongly recommend using an up-to-date audacity version. And if anything from equipment, setup, your voice, or ...

Re: MP3 Isn't Dead

As I understand it, the licensing program has ended, because all patents related to mp3 are expired. Naturally they say it's dead and you shouldn't use it, because they can't make any more money with it... And yes, Audacity could integrate an en-/decoder now, not sure if it can be the lame one, thou...

Re: Electrical background buzz

Well not really no you wouldn't hear anything at all if I didn't amplify it. Then I think we found the problem, you need to have your input gain so high that the last amplification step to get into our accepted range is only a little step (15dB max I'd say). Some people even record with their input...

Re: Electrical background buzz

Hi Skargill,

What do you mean, you have amplified it? Why and how much? Can you upload a raw recording, having both silence and your voice?
And the first ~50 ms of your recording seem to be fine, do you or anyone else have an idea why that could be?

Cheers
