Re: 1 Minute Test link and description

HI there :) there's a couple of things that need to be fixed before you start recording. 1) The bit rate should be 128 kbps. when you export your recording, the option to change this will pop up. it's in the drop down next to where it says 'quality' 2) the bit rate should be constant. when you expor...

Re: 1 Minute Test

Re: 1 Minute Test

Try a new recording. is the microphone volume slider in audacity all the way up? always easier if we can get the volume right in the first place than trying to edit afterwards. what is the exact issue you are having with amplifying? i've had a tinker with your test and i was able to amplify so its d...

Re: 1-min test Listeners Wanted

All is great apart from the volume of this recording. it's a little too quiet. if you're using audacity, the wave form should be peaking at the 0.5 mark. you may need to turn up your microphone volume a little. there is a slider to in audacity to do this. you may also need to use the 'amplify' tool....

Re: ~SOLO: More Celtic Fairy Tales by Joseph Jacobs

also, i'll treat that sample as your '1 min test' to save you doing another. all is fine apart from volume. it's a bit too loud. librivox likes for recording to be 86 - 92 db and this is coming in at 95 db. a good way to know is that the wave form in audacity should peak at just about 0.5. you might...

Re: 1 Minute Test

all is great, you're good to go! i didn't think you would be able to get such a nice sound on an phone. i'm quite shocked. the only thing i will suggest is to keep an eye on your volume. librivox aims for all recordings to be between 86 and 92 db. this is coming up at 86.7 on the checker tool so you...
