I have always been a fan of the Perception 120 USB, and it suits your voice beautifully.

There is a slight stumble at the start of the recording that you might like to remove. Otherwise good.

Cheers
Obs, forgot that, uploaded again:)

Help us finish!

Thought I'd try this on my iPad, sitting my living room, patting my dog. I did have to run it through Audacity/Replay Gain b/c the volume was in the 70s but other than that it is unaltered.

Thanks Jennifre

Excellent reading. PL OK. :clap:

Sound quality is very good, especially considering that you are using an internal microphone in a portable device. It is amazing how quickly technology improves.

I got a new mic today and couldn't wait to post on this thread. It's really different than my other one - I had to turn the input volume way down (from 85 to 50 or so) and it is still a little loud. I am sure I'll figure it out :D

The Rode NT-USB certainly justifies its reputation as one of the best USB microphones around.

Excellent recording - PL OK. :thumbs:

The amount of "fixing-up" these raw recordings require remind me of my first car. I was always confident that I could keep it running, just so long as I didn't ever run out of piano wire. "Piano wire?", I hear you ask. Yes, piano wire. Kept the doors from falling off.

Cheers,

Reading is PL OK. I enjoyed the contribution from the local wildlife at the end.

Algy, the bell-birds are very supportive and encouraging, but the whipbird is such a taskmaster!

Thanks Brian

Both readings are PL OK.

This actually Microphone Showdown number 3 - I have corrected the file names.

I noticed a slight background hum in the recording of the Clough poem. I don't know whether it came from the interface or the microphone.
