Re: Upload problem

You're right. I should have spotted that. The sound file is actually less than one hour long, but I had reloaded from the FLAC file to do some editing; somehow the sample format and export quality had got changed from what they should have been.

Thanks for that pointer.

Upload problem

Is there a maximum permitted file size for uploads? I've tried a couple of times to upload an mp3 file which is over 132Mb long, and after most of it has been uploaded, the process fails with an "Empty file upload result". I've listened to the beginning and end of the file and it seems okay.

Re: [SOLO] London Labour etc., Vol 1 -Mayhew-ans

Thanks, Gill. Section 87 edited and uploaded.

Unfortunately, most of the last chapter is a tabulation of his data, but I think we should do it, to fit in with the rest of the text.

Re: [SOLO] London Labour etc., Vol 1 -Mayhew-ans

Thanks, Steve; I'll probably not buy a copy, though. The "consent forms" and demand for addresses, and the reputedly stodgy style puts me off a little. it's true that there are people still in a similar state in London now as in Mayhew's time. A few years back, three friends and I decided to got to ...

Re: The all-new "HELP! I have an Audacity problem" thread

Generally, the input device is the microphone, the output device your speakers or headphones. Some microphones (the Blue Yeti, for example) have a plug for headphones so you can monitor your recording as you speak, and so are effectively both input and output devices.
