e.v.v.
Do you have "Hys"? I pronounced it "Hiss".

Also, I just realized I'm pronouncing "Brion" wrong. I'm pronouncing it "bree-OWN". Oh well ;-)

Hey Daniel, gosh, that's weird. Dunno why your Windows settings are popping back to 100%. Maybe...maybe it's the sequence of events. First plug in your mic (before opening Audacity) then adjust your windows settings -- being sure first that your mic is selected (all this obvious stuff, right? you'v...

Starting with the easy question... about dB being negative. The reason for this is that from one piece of equipment to another, there is no common "zero" point. It depends on the equipment's capabilities and settings. So instead of working with, let's says, dBm (decibels in relation to one milliwat...

I have no idea what any of that means, Nov, sorry. I'm still trying to figure out why decibels seem to be measured in negative numbers. I listened to your recording and it sounds amazing. The sound quality is a bit low, but satisfactory. But your reading voice is excellent. :shock: Do you have any k...

Reduce microphone input in Windows Vista/Audacity

My microphone (USB Logitech headset) is much too sensitive, and I'm getting a lot of clipping. How can I reduce the input sensitivity in either Windows Vista or Audacity? In Audacity, there is the input volume slider, but that just reduces loudness, not the sensitivity. In Windows Vista, there is th...

Don't forget about me.

No, take your time. I'm in no particular hurry.

Hey Daniel, Have you started recording chapter 10 yet? I've asked for 9, but because of the length and the previous two blocks of 4 chapters, I should have asked to hold 10, 11, and 12 for continuity if I can crank them out. Thoughts: -- If you're already recording, would you consider 9-12 instead ...

He writes dialog with the accent, which makes it hell to read. I have no idea what the characters are saying half the time.

Suffice it to say, my David Copperfield is apparently from the American south west :)

Where is Mr. Peggotty from? Dickens wrote the dialog with an accent, so I'm assuming Peggotty is not English. Wikipedia says they're from Yarmouth, but I'm not sure which Yarmouth.

Any hints on how Mr. Peggotty is supposed to sound? Thanks for the help :)
