Sorry to hear about all your upgrade woes. I hadn't picked up that there was a new Audacity - these days I've cut the computer out of the loop altogether (at least until editing) and record on one of these - it's easy to carry about and just works. I suppose there might be new firmware issued at some time, but I don't use any of the advanced functions so can't imagine I'd need it.

The reading is great but I'm afraid you need to revisit your MP3 settings - you've saved the MP3 as a VBR file and the settings need to be CBR at 128kbps. Since you're also having to resave it anyway, the file would benefit from a very small amount of amplification too - you're within the 87-92dB range but only just (Checker's reporting 87.3dB so 1.7dB more would give you the full 89) - not enough to be a problem but, as I said, if you're resaving anyway it's only a couple of extra mouseclicks.

Cheers,
Paul

Such impressive equipment! I think I need a new mic, the sound seemed to be breaking up.

It was the latest Audacity for Linux and it presented me with a lot more choices (which I didn't understand). It was also calling the file an "aiff" (I googled, it's a known bug). But now you've told me what the "constant" option means and that's great! I think the bitrate and the volume should be OK now.

Best,

Barbara

Hi Paul and Anne,

Just letting you know I'll be taking up this project again soon. My other Solo is winding down to its end...

Best,

Barbara

Hi Paul and Anne, clocking in to say my other solo has only two sections to go.

I shall return.

Barbara
