Re: FULL [POLITICS] Discourses on the First Decade of Titus Livius, Book 1, Machiavelli-icequeen

Hey, merendo. No rule there. Personally, what I do is just change voice inflection, but that only works if the parentheses don't run for too long. Otherwise, yes, stating "parenthesis... end of parenthesis" is a good idea. I think you can judge what would make it more understandable to the reader. ...

Re: ~GROUP/POLITICS] Discourses on the First Decade of Titus Livius, Book 2, Machiavelli

Hey Leni. I really enjoyed working on book one, so I'd like to contribute to this one, too. May I read the first five sections?

Re: FULL [POLITICS] Discourses on the First Decade of Titus Livius, Book 1, Machiavelli-icequeen

Leni, there is some parenthesis in chapter 55. Is there a general rule for how to read that ("Parenthesis - end of parenthesis")?

Re: Recording booth

Ah ... https://www.5amtag.de -- Raspberry, Blackberry and Apple. It wasn't the BEST joke I've ever made. :roll: Ah, I get it now :) I did know of the five-a-day campaign (having lived in Britain for some time) but I guess "Raspberry" and "Blackberry" have become product names to me, rather than fru...

Hi, merendo. Thanks for asking! I actually think it means Gnaeus. That is the standard abbreviation for the Latin name, like C. for Gaius ad L. for Lucius, and that is the name Livy uses for the consul Julius Mento.
Okidoke, "Gnaeus" it is :)

Re: [POLITICS] Discourses on the First Decade of Titus Livius, Book 1, Machiavelli-icequeen

In the beginning of chapter 50, the name Julius Mento is mentioned, preceeded by "Cn." I assume that stands for "counsel", as mentioned two words later, as well as on Wikipedia. How should I pronounce this? Should I say "See-En" or "Counsil"?

merendo07, Don't you just hate to look back on your typing to discover an embarrassing mistake? here = hear. <sigh> The only pronunciation I noticed was with Titus. I have been hearing it with a long I; tie-tus I have taken the liberty of re-recording the intro to section 11, with "Titus" pronounce...

Re: [POLITICS] Discourses on the First Decade of Titus Livius, Book 1, Machiavelli-icequeen

Section #48 is PL OK :thumbs: :clap: However, there is a techinical problem with sections 45, 46, & 47. LibriVox uses a specific audio format for its files: mono sound, 44.1 Khz 16-bit audio, encoded in the MP3 format at a constant 128 kbps bit rate. Although there are a lot of technical terms ther...

You'd never see me going to such lengths just for the sake of a better hobby recording. :shock: You're clearly more determined than me. May the "contraption" work well for you.

Bonus point for the maps on the wall :wink:
Thanks ;)

Re: Recording booth

What do you have above the booth, on the ceiling? Ceilings often reflect quite a lot - so having a blanket or something similar over the top of the booth will make quite a difference. But the difference is already excellent from the original. I have nothing on the ceiling, so that probably causes a...

Re: Recording booth

I've done three test recordings for comparison. One without the booth (terrible echo), one with the booth and the microphone sat on a hardwood desk and one with the booth freestanding (actually, with the booth proped up precariously on folding chairs) - much like I intend the final setup to be like....
