Having a community full of volunteers is a wonderful thing. Some members will lean towards doing what they do best or are most comfortable with. As far as I know, the person who has put the most effort in for "How To Videos" in this community is @philchenevert. It is hard coming onto the scene with new ideas with training videos. I have no desire to overstep my boundaries concerning these videos and I would like to think they will do someone some good, in 2017/2018. IMHO, I do consider @philchenevert the Official Video Instructor/Coordinator for the LibriVox community.Is there such thing like an official instructor on a community like LibriVox? I always thought somebody just does And I think it's wonderful, as different people have different approaches and so might understand on person better than the other.
Not really. Audacity is a mixing program and is not accurate when it comes to analyzing audio. I have used Audacity for over 15 years and it pains me to even be discussing it, as far as a recording program. Even their official forum states it is not a DAW. I know it is used by millions, but that is only because it is free. Their latest version no longer includes the replay gain plugin and that is one of the things people are complaining about on their official forum, as well as this community. They say it is included yet it can not be activated on most OS. You can click here to see over 250 post on their forum, with over 5000 reply's, on why people can not meet the ACX requirements. I know LibriVox does not have these same standards, but the same problems will effect either community.Two little notes and ideas to your video (btw, I love the 1-minute-test at the end):
- People here often suggest replay gain, a plugin in audacity, and/or checker here to check volume/tech specs. You also see the bitrate and so on in the properties of a mp3. Would it be possible to ad that to the video?
I have watched the video and on my end, the mouse pointer is dead on track. If you are experiencing a lag, it is more than likely due to your internet connection or video buffer settings. I use Camstasia for my screen-cast. Once I record the video, I export the wav file into Reaper to mix and master it. YT streams at a -13dbs with a -0.1dbTP and that is what I render/export the audio at.- In the video the mouse pointer is a long time on wrong specs. Sometimes brains make funny things; I suspect that people could remember the wrong data (although you really show the correct data great at the end, that's wonderful). Would it be possible to cross the wrong things out, just as idea?
100% AGREED!@Helen, sorry for the OT, but you're cleared anyway and probably already happily reading. You diction is wonderful clear
