After fussing about here on LibriVox reading a poem here and there, I've decided to do a book of them. From my research, no one has done this entire book, yet.

Thanks, Cori!

Other than hooking up the mic and recording, recording, recording... what else should I be doing?

Editing, editing, editing, and FTPing, FTPing, FTPing.

You're allowed to eat and sleep, if doing otherwise would impair the quality of the recording.

Will PM the mundane bits over. :D Have fun with this!

Okay, Cori, here are the first two. Sorry it has taken so long... I visited NYC for 5 days. The hotel said it had wireless, but I soon found out it was not FREE wireless.

Introduction

So, let me know what you think... I probably need to amplify the signal... but I need some other input first... if in any of these recordings the mic noise seems excessive, please tell me. I am in dire need of a new mic. One that doesn't make the bump noise every time I move my jaw...

Low -- woe!

Squid, if you're using Audacity to record with, some of the hints in this thread, http://librivox.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=9208 might help for future recordings. :D

(Or this thread: http://librivox.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=9095 )

Shorthand for "gosh, you have low volume, woe is me (and listeners)!"

Thank you both for your concerns about my volume and such. I shall have a new mic (bump-noiseless), so I was planning on rerecording them both tonight. The mic sensitivity is already maxed out, but I can still finagle a louder recording.

Yes, I use Audacity. Thanks for the link leading to tips!

I'll be posting new recordings soon!
