Okay, so just one last double check.... even though it is in mono, one of the guides on librivox says you should be able to hear it in both ears. I think it’s in all caps if I remember correctly, so... mono, but in both ears?

yes!
in both ears, the same, because it is mono!
(and some software settings, chips and systems play the mono channel on both ears.
according to wikipedia, when i understand the english version of the article (way better than the german text, btw), that is called "mirrored mono")

did you find this in our librivox-wiki?
https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Audacity_FAQ#Should_I_record_in_Mono_or_Stereo.3F
Should I record in Mono or Stereo?
Audacity allows you to choose Stereo or Mono when you start your recording. Since most of us don't use Stereo microphones, choose Mono. When you export the file it will end up playing back in Stereo. Recording in Mono just instructs Audacity to apply the same content to both left and right.
for audacity, this is an expanation regarding the settings:
https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Audacity_FAQ#Why_does_my_MP3_export_as_Stereo.2C_when_I_am_recording_in_Mono.3F
Why does my MP3 export as Stereo, when I am recording in Mono?
First make absolutely sure that you have set your recording preferences as Mono in Edit | Preferences | Devices | Recording | Channels, and that you have selected Joint Stereo as the Channel mode in the Options when you export the MP3.

If both of these are correct, and you are still told that your MP3 is Stereo, there is only one explanation that we have found: in Audacity, you will see a slider to the left of your mono track which looks like this: . If this is not correctly centred, then (for some inexplicable reason) Audacity will export your MP3 as a Stereo file.
and in short:
we need that for archive.org.

--> everything is ok when you deliver mono :-) <--

Okay... so I got the test to pass the checker.

Then I went to the uploader. And I think it uploaded??????

Should there be a response or confirmation on the page once it’s complete? Because I didn’t get one. Also, I looked for your name in the MC’s list, but couldn’t find it, so I just posted to test-tests, if it actually worked.

And IF it actually worked, the link to it is https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/test_camdavis.mp3

Man, I have to say, the technical aspects of this are cumbersome and non-intuitive so far.

Thanks,

Blair

heyho blair,

thank you for keeping up the good work!
:D

when the link appears... you have sucessfully uploaded a recording!
that is the feedback!

another feedback is for your 1 minute test: it is checker and pl ok!

and your reader-catalogue-page is here: https://librivox.org/reader/14408
(changes can be done by a mc, also weblinks to your blog or homepage can be added, etc)
(have a look at your reader section details: i think, the reader page is a supercool tool and todo list, also :-) )


so, section 02 is yours and i hope, i didn't forget too much now...
have fun with recording, blair!

and: i wish good night from austria!
:9:

Phew! Okay, I finished the section. I hope it meets the specs. It went through checker and passed, so I’m feeling fairly confident. But it is my first try, so I would understand if something isn’t quite up to snuff.

Anyway, length is 06:14, and the link is https://librivox.org/uploads/alg1001/essaysonart_02_goethe_128kb.mp3

Thanks!

Wow! Sounds beautiful! The only issue is that there are 3 seconds of silence at the end instead of 5 seconds. Please edit and re-upload using the same file name. Post in this thread when you are ready for spot PL, and I'll double check the silence. Thanks so much.

good morning,

i have to ask back: did you record the whole section anew?
or did you edit the last seconds of silence of the recording, only?

thx for your answer!
