This is without the AC on and I think it is an improvement.
See what you think.

Hi, all.

I'm fairly new here (though have a lot of voice over experience), but am already enjoying the shorts that I did today. And I'd love to take part in this effort. I've a BA in history, and English history was one of my focases, so reading this text should be a blast.

I'll happily step up for section 8. If I get it knocked out in good time, I will definitely volunteer for more, as well.

Christie steps up and Jim lobs over the morsel that is section 8.

Enjoy

Section 8 is complete.

Here's the link: http://www.yousendit.com/transfer.php?action=download&ufid=2427F4DA38A467CE

Let me know if it passes muster, or if you'd like a redo.

So, how about the next section? ;)

Many thanks.
I've downloaded it and am listening to it now.
It's a remarkably fine quality recording.
There's a fine resonance to it that is partly your voice but also a slightly echoey quality. Is this environment or have you applied some reverb?

It sounds good.

<Jim lobs over section 9>

Please could I have some more?

Thanks Jim!

No reverb on my part, unless gremlins in the machines have played with it while I was sleeping. ;) Otherwise it's just the accoustics of my livingroom, which admittedly has more wood than carpet. Makes me wonder how a recording would shound in the shower. :shock:.

Am off to look over section 9.

Hey, Jim. Here's section 09 for you. Let me know if it's okay. I fear there are more bups in the background than I expected. My mic picked up slight movements of the cords and such. :(

Many thanks Sean.
I'm just listening to it now.
A nice quality recording it is too.

I detect you're finding the process hard work tho'.
Don't worry.
A few more recordings and you'll begin to really enjoy the process.

Kind regards

Jim

Ach!
Worry ye not.
If I were really really searching for problems I might suggest messing with the settings on your noise gate to avoid that hard drop to silence when you stop speaking but frankly it's not that great a problem.

The recording sounds bloody good.
Any more ?

Many thanks Ian.
I think it is a little better.
The background noise is still there but it looks like we're stuck with it.
Don't let it out you off though.
I still want your recordings. Even with the background noise I still enjoy listening to them.

BTW have you still got your old recordings from history of england chapter 4. I applied noise reduction to them and thought them improved but listening back to them now I'm not entirely pleased with my efforts and think they might be better left alone.
Any chance you could send me those again ?

Starlite sent me :D -- can I start on Part 14, please..? And have 15 too, if it's free..?
There's honestly no such thing as a stupid question -- but I'm afraid I can't rule out giving a stupid answer : : To Posterity and Beyond!
