Re: Noise removal - Audacity wiki tips + my own test

Why not post a little sample here? Esther :D Here is the link. I realised that when listened to it, there is little difference, but when viewed in Audacity, this is very visible. Also, when I use the second part as sample for noise removal, the first part still has noise (makes sense). The lamp has...

Re: Another convoluted copyright question

Thank you so much guys for taking interest in this. The person who replied to me from Stanford said that the book was not available via Google Books (I knew that already). Will keep you posted :-)
thank you

Noise removal - Audacity wiki tips + my own test

Hello, I am constantly amazed at the level of technical know-how on these forums. So I am sure you are aware of the Audacity wiki pages http://wiki.audacityteam.org/wiki . I've been reading some tips about how to cut the noise by switching off lights, moving the microphone away from mobile phones an...

Re: Another convoluted copyright question

The Stanford University page seems to say that this book is available for download as an ebook. I don't think I can actually download it myself to check. The only limitation mentioned for the book seems to be that there aren't any illustrations. Link here: http://www.worldcat.org/title/przygody-sin...

Another convoluted copyright question

So, there is a final follow up and recap. The text itself is in public domain, both in Poland and US. Written in 1913 and the author died in 1937. Stanford University library has the original 1913 edition, but they don't offer scanning services, even that I was willing to pay. The only complete digi...

Re: Bloopers - 2

Can't understand it but it sounds like you were having fun. lol Absolutely! I thought I'd do a rough reading first, as this is my first larger project (I've recorded so far 2 poems for multilingual collection). The funny thing was, once I get over the tongue twisting bit, I run into another blooper...

Oooo! Where do I pencil my name as PL for that? And what's next on your list? The Manuscript found in Saragossa? At least the name (Jan Potocki) won't give you any grief. :D

"Christmas Carol" - solo or part of collection?

Hello again :-), while waiting for my copyright query to clarify I found this http://pl.wikisource.org/wiki/Wigilja_Bo%C5%BCego_Narodzenia - lovely Polish translation of Dickens' Christmas Carol. I've checked how other versions have been catalogued and appears that they are standalones, and recorded...

Another convoluted copyright question

Hi, I am thinking of recording a Polish book, by Boleslaw Lesmian 1877-1937. The book was written and first published in 1913 (Przygody Sindbada Zeglarza - Adventures of Sindbad the Sailor). Sounds good. But... the earliest edition I can find to use is a scan from 1936, or text in wikisources based ...
