Don't know either, SC. Funny thing too is that when I look at the icons for the two files here on my Mac, the "good" file shows an iTunes icon, while the second "clipped" file shows a QuickTime icon. So the files are somehow different. Thanks for listening SC and for filling me in on your own experience. Helpful.

Plus, and this is actually directed to you John, both files have an odd 127 kbps instead of the standard (our standard) 128. Have any idea why your MP3 export would be off by one Kbps? Have you noticed that with your other recordings?

I have to admit I read the poem a few days ago but could not get the recording noises down so, I waited for a few days before I gave it another shot.

Hi, Alan--

Just a newbie to the Weekly Poetry. I've done some Shakespeare, some Poe, some Dickens, etc., so far. Librivox is such a great idea, I'm not sure what's next. Maybe a long solo recording if I can find the right book.

Thanks,

Michael

Hi Michael! Maybe you'd like to consider something "in-between," a long poem up to 20 or so minutes in length. The Long Poetry Collection might be a good place for you to stretch out and become accustomed to things ?and not feel overwhelmed. Here's the current link: http://librivox.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3156

Good luck!

Thanks, the only editing that I did was the long pauses before and after. I always give myself plenty of silence to choose from before and after, just incase a mouse-click or breathing or something comes through, I can always edit. But, I left the middle alone. After reading it a second time, I noticed that there were things that I would have read differently, like the part about the sun. But, I controlled my urge and left it un-refined ^_^

There aren't too many long poems that I can think of that I like, at least not at the moment. If I come across one, I'll definitely post it. But, one poem I remember from my HS English classes is Sir Gawayne and the Green Knight. So, I'm thinking of doing that one. Although, I'd LOVE to hear someone doing the Middle English version! Both, Modern and Middle English versions are posted on Gutenberg. However, I'd do the modern one, of course.

Marvelous Ezwa! The wait was well worth it. Thanks so much for doing it!

No idea. I just confirmed with the original file and it states 128 bit-rate. Somehow it is changed. Audacity doesn't even have an option (afaik) to change to that odd bitrate. And I just re-listened to the original file and the missing syllables from the other recordings aren't present in mine. It is complete with all letters, words, etc. There is a slight breath before household that I swallow part of the first syllable, but it works else.

I have re-uploaded the file..
http://johngon.com/librivox/danse_russe_williams__jag_orig.mp3

Please take a look at this and let me know what shows up. For some reason, even though Audacity preferences say 128 kbps, this file has 192 kbps.

I don't want to litter up this thread - can one of our oh so knowledgeable engineers and Audacity geniuses contact me to figure out what is happening?

Hi, John--

I would hate to even suggest this, but I listened to the file, and the "skips" sound to me like the file was corrupted somehow (possibly in the Export to mp3 process). It almost feels like the read-write heads on your hard drive were fluctuating when they saved the file, skipping bits during the save. Could you have a hard drive that's dying?

Thanks John and Michael?

I've solved the problem on my end. John's file is now safely bedded among a dozen or so others. The one John made available as a link here in this Weekly Poem Forum worked out to be perfect ?with yes, the thoroughly spontaneous swallow!

I'm very happy with it. This is an excellent collection all around. All of the recordings have a special freshness to them.
