Re: Need recording advice from seasoned readers

Re: Don't you hate...

When I record I throw everyone including our dog out of the house and switch on the electric fence around the garden. (It's only 200 Volts so pretty harmless ... :wink:

Re: Need recording advice from seasoned readers

I often do one hour or longer recording sessions, but also short 20-30 minute ones as well. Twenty minutes of finished recording takes me about one hour to edit, and that's taking out all mistakes, shortening gaps, taking out the frequent swearing, reducing the peaks on the waveform, increasing the ...

Re: [SOLO] The War That Will End War - dc

Sorry this is taking so long, but I hope to start working on the H G Wells project again in earnest in about two weeks time, and certainly before the end of September, all being well and no unexpected problems with the big project I'm doing cropping up, as I've recorded 31 out of 42 chapters at tod...

Re: Submitting Recordings to Audible (through ACX)

Audible and other platforms require a noise floor of at least -60dB and peak values of no more than -3db as well as an RMS requirement of -18 to -23dB, and these specs are hard to achieve even with good mics, pre-amps and recorders. A lot of loud audio such as music (especially pop, rock and rap) wi...

It is exactly the mission and methods that LV adheres to (public domain, "choice of voice," free distribution, acceptance of recordings from all, even those who are not professional readers, etc.) that brought me to LV to volunteer my time. And keeps me here, reading and proof listening, now for 5 ...
