Link to another project comparing recording devices:
Written in March by William Wordsworth.
This is a project which will allow us to compare recording quality of different mp3 players and portable recording devices. Please read the poem and post what type of recorder you are using as well as any post-recording processing you used on the file to improve the quality. Many recorders have pre-set bit rates and sample rates so please make sure it is submitted in Bit Rate: 128 kbps; Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz.
I use razor lame to convert to the correct rates.
Begin your reading with the abbreviated LibriVox disclaimer:
Then read the poem:“Written in March by William Wordsworth read for librivox.org by [your name] on [your recording device].”
At the end of your reading, leave a space and then say:THE cock is crowing,
The stream is flowing,
The small birds twitter,
The lake doth glitter
The green field sleeps in the sun;
The oldest and youngest
Are at work with the strongest;
The cattle are grazing,
Their heads never raising;
There are forty feeding like one!
Like an army defeated
The snow hath retreated,
And now doth fare ill
On the top of the bare hill;
The plowboy is whooping- anon-anon:
There's joy in the mountains;
There's life in the fountains;
Small clouds are sailing,
Blue sky prevailing;
The rain is over and gone!
Please leave 5 seconds of silence at the end of your recording.End of poem. This recording is in the public domain.
