Hi Tsinaymel - thanks for another tale!
Have marked this one as see PL notes.
There's quite a lot of instances where the first letters of the word have been cut off. I probably wouldn't have flagged if it had happened once or twice but it occurs throughout the recording so is very noticeable on listening. A few examples and where they occur:
3.33 - 'ontinued' for 'continued'
4.27 - 'onceal' for 'conceal'
5.46 - 'uring' for 'during'
10.00 - 'enjamin' for 'Benjamin'
I'd guess this might be something that's happening in the editing process but I'm not an expert... If you're not sure how to fix let us know!
As I say, that's not all of them, just pointing some out so you can see what I mean.
If you're revisiting the recording anyway, it might be worth seeing if you can look at the edit that's inserted from 7.59-8.02, as this is noticeably different to the rest of the recording and has quite a lot of buzzy background noise.
I have reviewed the audacity file and understand how this happened. Since I started recording a few weeks ago, I was learning about audacity slowly. Somewhere around this time I activated the feature which automatically records when mike picks up sound. The vowels are probably cut because I was cutting away unwanted noise (e.g., breathing) mike picked up and cut away too much. At around this time, I also developed an annoying click and I was removing the clicks by sight mostly and may have mistaken an okay audio spike for an unwanted click.
Now that I've turned up the volume real high, the parts in question are slurred and I guess my brain is filling in the missing sound.
Sorry that you got caught in this mess. I value your time and feedback and have no choice but to repeat this recording since it's going to burn less time than trying to look for the holes to patch. It's better I re-record also because the gaps created by stop-starting the recording based on sound are annoying me.
I'm just afraid the rest of the recordings I posted for collection 48 might have been affected. SIGH and BIG SIGH...I'll need help to diagnose the remaining ones. I'll also try to listen to them, but it's harder for me to find them, because my brain is supplying the missing sounds. But if you feel early on they are major affected, please stop right away and I'll figure out what to do.
Thanks and sorry again.
