That tutorial on amplifying was really helpful, Elli -- thanks! I couldn't figure out at all how to install MP3Gain -- it kept saying I was missing critical files for it to run -- so I'm afraid I'm not going to be able to check my db level myself. I've adjusted the recording volume on my mic again. When I record Ch 3, please let me know how it sounds. If it's too low, I'll be able to de-amplify the peaks and then amplify the volume the way you did.

Many thanks, too, for fixing Ch 1. Definitely go with it!

ETA: I finally figured out how to download and use MP3Gain to test db level. Hooray! Will use it before uploading Ch 3 and amplify if necessary.

The volume is much better (92dB). Only there is now some clipping. (That's when the waves touch the top and bottom and get flattened.... it can make the recording sound distorted) For future recordings it might be good to lower the input volume again a tiny bit.

Hi, Elli

Should I re-record this chapter at a slightly lower volume to get rid of the clipping? Or should I just look for the parts that are clipped and re-record them? Or something else?

Thanks,
Linda

ETA: Oh, wait -- I just realized that Ch 2 is listed as PL OK but Ch 1 is still listed as having volume problems. Do you want me to try to fix the volume on my Ch 1 file or do you want to go with the Ch 1 file that you modified yourself already? I'm happy to go with your file if that works for you.

I played around with the amplify feature and got the recording to 88.9db according to MP3Gain. Please let me know how it sounds!

Thanks,

Hi Linda!

No, no need to do any changes for chapter 2 (there only is very little clipping and it didn't cause any kind of weird noise that I could hear) and I've changed chapter 1 to PL:OK! Totally overlooked that you already said in your earlier post that you were happy with the amplified version. Sorry! :roll:

Downloading... looking forward to listening! :D

Hi, Elli!

Just checking in - with summer vacation, travel, etc, I haven't had time to record. But not to worry, I haven't dropped the project! I'll get back up and running once the fall semester has gotten under way and I'm on a more regular schedule.
