Good choice. I think you will be very happy with it. Many Librivox readers use this model. It has the special advantage that it can be clipped to a laptop.

Cheers

The Farmer by Freeman Edwin Miller (1864-1951)
I got the here: http://www.public-domain-poetry.com/freeman-edwin-miller/farmer-26378
And it's 2:32.

I'm going to purchase the mic that Algy recommended, so if the quality of my recording isn't good enough, I can re-record later this week after I get the mic.

I'm going to be away from LV for a while. I have had some serious family things come up and LV is to much at the moment.

The Farmer
Volume is too low. The spikes prevent straight amplification. So do this:

1. Highlight all, then do Compression with these settings:
Threshold: -22 dB
Noise Floor: -40 dB
Ratio: 3:1
Attack: 0.2
Decay: 1.0
NO checks in the check boxes

2. Amplify by 9 dB.

That'll put it right around the correct volume.

3. Add another second or so of silence at the end. It has about 3.5 seconds; we use 5.

Otherwise, PL OK. I don't hear any strange echo or noise, listening on ear buds. It's a slightly muffled sound like it's not the best microphone, but otherwise it is fine. :)


Hope is the Thing With Feathers

Technicals are all OK. Just a couple edits:

1. Add 0.5-1 second of silence at the beginning.

2. At 0:21 at the end of the poem, add a couple seconds' silence before you say, "end of poem." Give the listener a chance to transition. :)

3. at 0:21/0:22, you only need to say, "End of poem. This recording is in the public domain" as per the instructions in the first post.

Remember that reading these poems isn't a race. Take your time and enjoy. ;)

Sharing knowledge about people who walk different walks of life is a baby step towards understanding them and librivox is a great platform for just that!
