Duty by Ellen Sturgis Hooper (1812 - 1848).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/duty-by-ellen-sturgis-hooper/
Ellen Sturgis Hooper was an American poet. A member of the Transcendental Club, she was widely regarded as one of the most gifted poets among the New England Transcendentalists. Her work is occasionally reprinted in anthologies. She is a new author in the LibriVox Catalog. ( Wikipedia)
Each week a poem is chosen to be recorded by as many LibriVox volunteers as possible!
This short Weekly Poem was suggested by Garth Burton (Veggrower) :clap:
This week's poem can be found here.

Set your recording software to:
Channels: 1 (Mono)
Bit Rate: 128 kbps
Sample Rate: 44100 kHz

Have questions on "how"?
Check LV's Recording Notes thread before recording. If this is your first recording, you'll also find this Newbie Guide to Recording useful.
Begin your reading with the abbreviated LibriVox disclaimer:
No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
Duty by Ellen Sturgis Hooper, read for LibriVox.org by [your name].
[Add, if you wish, date, your location, and/or your personal URL.]
Then read the poem:

I SLEPT and dreamed that life was Beauty:
I woke and found that life was Duty:
Was then thy dream a shadowy lie?
Toil on, sad heart, courageously,
And thou shalt find thy dream to be
A noonday light and truth to thee.


At the end of your reading, leave a space and then say:
End of poem. This recording is in the public domain.

Please leave 5 seconds of silence at the end of your recording.
Save your recording as an mp3 file using the following filename and ID3 tag format:
File name - all in lowercase: duty_hooper_your initials in lowercase_128kb.mp3
(e.g. duty_hooper_klh_128kb.mp3 )


ID3 tags (Version 2.30): ID Tags are completed during Cataloging

Welcome to LibriVox Richard :D good first reading, however, the file is in stereo, we need a mono recording.
Could you upload a mono version please?

Good reading Spastel, there is some vocal distortion in your reading, I'm wondering if you applied Noise Reduction. I have heard this type of distortion with too heavy a Noise Reduction value applied.

Hi, I didn't apply Noise Reduction, to be fair, I don't even know how to. I do know there is a feature. I did amplify the recording, but it said no clipping occurred. However, I do think it was the amplifying. I'll amplify it less and re-do it when I get the time. I accidentally set the recording volume to low, meaning I had to amplify it a lot.
