Here's my first recording!
Chapter 16, "The Robin's Home"
Sorry it took me longer than I expected. A few issues arose in my life - yikes!

Here's the link:

I would appreciate feedback on the sound quality. I figured out how to use Audacity to clean up "hiss" using Noise Reduction. But to my ear there is a hollowness to the sound. I actually have used four different microphones and gone to three different areas of my house in an effort to get something that would sound more natural. Is it just me? Or is there an odd quality? If so, what tool in Audacity might I use to clear that? I really would like to not have to buy another microphone...

Please let me know if I have forgotten anything. Thanks for the feedback. I hope this is okay!

Betsy
Betsy,

Your reading was lovely. Great pacing and expression in your voice.

I thought the sound quality was just fine. It sounds warm to me, not hollow and whatever set up you used is a keeper.

Hi MaryAnn -

Oh I am very relieved! I had fun reading the little story and look forward to finding a new project. In the meantime I'll keep an eye out for my PL response. Thank you for the encouragement.
