Can you or the Forum please help me, and tell me if there are any pop, bump or clicking Audio apps that I can get other than Audacity, as I create bump sounds when recording in the words and find them hard to remove? Thanks.
One way or another we'll get this finished before the end of the month.
It's mostly OK, but your front and back bits don't follow the pattern set out in the first topic post, so you'll need to change them, please.
~ .24s Insert Fables of Aesop and Others, by Aesop before the story name
~ 3.26 I hear 'end of poem' but I should hear 'end of Section 46. Please delete the extra and unwanted statement 'This recording is in the public domain'
This is beyond a standard PL, but I will comment that the reading is relatively slow in places, with a lot of overly long pauses and drawn out phrases (single words, word by word, or only two to three words at a time), which tends to make the story drag a bit. You might give attention to reading in longer phrases, with fewer long pauses, which would enhance the listener experience.
Re. your query on pups, bumps etc, this is most unlikely to be Audacity and far more likely the mike, your position and/or something you are doing. For example, pops are almost always caused by puffs of breath close to the mike, and can be avoided via varying the mike placement, distance from your mouth and/or a Pop filter. Bumps are usually due to being close to the mike, it not being well positioned, and perhaps moving while reading.
I would post your query in the Need Help? forum here: viewforum.php?f=23 as it will get lost here.
Make sure you give a link to a sample reading unedited and point to where you have issues, so people can listen and offer advice. You can load your sample in the sample place as the one-minute-test files.
Thanks for reading.
