Hi David --

I have done a small experiment and I am afraid you are the "blind" guinea pig if you don't mind. Sorry, no human experimentation ethics form available.

Chapter 101, a wee short one, is uploaded for listening.
1:51.1, 90 dB

Would you please tell me what you think of the audio quality? How do you think it compares with other recordings? Then I will let you in on the nature of the experiment.

Thanks

Gail

Gail,
The number, 101, tipped me off as to where the file was. There aren't many books with that many sections. The file seems to have less bass and if I may speculate perhaps "less processed." Within a few seconds I get lost in the story and they (I also listened to 97) begin to sound very similar.

Hmmm. Posting in the wrong forum was a bit flaky, and forgetting the link too. Sorry about that but great detective skills. Cheers

Hi -

Here is Section 42.

https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/personalnarrative3_42_humboldt.mp3
24:14.5, 88.5 dB.

I had to both amplify and compress to get it up to a decent volume again. Darned Blue Snowball - so many things that are sub-optimal with it. So hopefully it sounds OK.

Just two more sections to go and we are finished with AvH -- and can move on to APH. However, I need to write an intro...

Thanks

Gail
