See if you think the sound is different? I'm using a new mic!

EDIT: The new mic is problematic with some hiss, which i think I got rid of in Audacity. I have to send it back as it's not right.

Hi, new reader here.

I've just completed my 1-minute test, and for my first shot at recording would like to try A Poor Man's Tale of a Patent by Charles Dickens. It's obviously in the public domain, but it's not on Gutenberg. If it's OK I'd propose to read from the text held at Dickens Journals Online - see pdf on this page: http://www.djo.org.uk/indexes/articles/a-poor-mans-tale-of-a-patent.html.

I'd like to be listed as 'MichaelMaggs' please (no space between first and last names).

Regards

Michael

Welcome!
There is usually no need to pre-claim for these collections. The Dickens story should be fine, but I would prefer you use this source: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/872/872-h/872-h.htm#page386
This is definitely Public Domain, but the djo may or may not be... if depends if they changed anything in the re-printing.
I have entered you in the catalog... that only needs to be done once, so you are set to record for any project now.

Many thanks. Don't know why I didn't find the Gutenberg copy. Will have a go in the next few days.

OK, here's my very first attempt at recording. I'd appreciate any constructive criticism you may have on both technical issues and narration style. Now's a good time for me to deal with any beginner errors!
