Re: 3062-6131 displayed on album

Not sure what you are talking about. LibriVox does not produce any players or apps. These are created by third parties and have nothing to do with LibriVox. Contact the app developer.

Re: 1-minute test Frankel

Hi Laurie I reviewed your test sample and some changes are needed. LibriVox requires audio that is 128kb constant bit rate, mono, and between 86db and 92db, preferably 89-90. Your sample is too soft at 83db. First, try raising the recording volume about 6db. You didn't provide any info on your equip...

Re: One Minute Test Uploaded

Hi Jim I reviewed your sample, and while it meets LV specs for bit rate, mono, etc., there is quite a bit of background noise, which sounds mechanical. The noise floor needs to come down about 10db. The best solution is to reduce this at the source. If that doesn't work, try Audacity noise removal. ...

Re: My 1min test

I reviewed both your samples; I assume you will be using the processed version, as the unprocessed audio is it the wrong bit rate.

Test2 sounds great and meets all the specs. You are good-to-go. Happy narrating!

Your sample's volume is a bit too low at 84.8db. There is also a bit too much overall background noise, plus other sounds (ba...

Re: [SOLO] A Gentleman of Leisure, by P.G. Wodehouse - dc

Chapters 3 & 4 in. Actually, PGW wrote a lot about New York. During WWI (he was already too old for service) he was in NY writing stage musicals. He moved to France in the 1930's for tax reasons, got captured by the Germans when they invaded and forced to make propaganda, for which the Brits branded...

Re: Readers Test

Still too loud - 92.7. Be sure you are selecting the entire track before applying the filter.
