Hello,

I am interested in recording Woman Suffrage by Federal Amendment, Part 1 if this is still available.

Hi elynnjac. I'll sign you up for section 18, Federal Amendment, Part 1 .

As this will be your first recording for Librivox, please have a look at the Newbie Guide to Recording and also read carefully through all the notes in the first post of this thread if you haven't already done so.

Even if you are experienced with recording elsewhere, please send in a short test recording to check that all the technical settings meet LibriVox requirements before recording a full chapter. 

1-minute test

I'll also need to know by what name you would like to be listed in the catalog. This can be the same as your forum name, your real name or another pseudonym of your choice. If you have a personal website, that can be linked as well.

Thanks and welcome to Librivox. :)

Duration: 20:39

Note: The voice sounds different from the first recording done as this is a group account (approved by the LibriVox admins here: viewtopic.php?f=23&t=84296&p=1823145#p1823145)

Please let me know if there are any concerns, thanks!

Chapter 6 sounds great! There are just some things to edit that I've noted below. Please don't be intimidated by the notes; most of these should be quick edits of cutting out starts of words or repeats. :)

- At 0:56, "Out of this vastness," you correct yourself before saying "vastness." (p. 74)
- At 1:25, "where dozens had been before, trappers, miners, etc.," you leave out "before." (p.74)
- At 1:30, "Saloons," you say "salons." (p. 74)
- At 3:22, "the Eastern political treatment," you correct yourself before saying "political." (p. 75)
- At 4:34, "There was a good deal of party feeling developed," you repeat "party" and leave out "of." (p. 76)
- At 7:07, "On the 27th of November," you say 17th. (p. 77)
- At 7:30, "lively and acrimonious," you say "acrominous." (p. 78)
- At 8:19, "found him vacillating," you say "facilitating." (p. 78)
- At 8:39, "Second Baptist Church," you correct yourself before saying "Baptist." (p. 78)
- At 10:51, "The rowdies of the place undertook," you correct yourself before saying "undertook." (p. 79)
- At 11:07, you repeat "and so." (p. 79)
- At 12:46, "tried a murder case," you correct yourself before saying "murder." (p. 80)
- At 13:03, "This was the possibility," you correct yourself before saying "possibility." (p. 81)
- At 14:23, "evidence of progress," you say "evening." (p. 81)
- At 16:11, "preparatory to statehood," you say "preparation." (p. 82)
- At 17:20, "furnishing a convenient excuse," you correct yourself before saying "excuse." (p. 83)
- At 20:26, you don't need to say "End of Woman Suffrage and Politics, The Inner Story of the Suffrage Movement by Carrie Chapman Catt and Nettie Rogers Shuler," as that's for the last chapter of the book.

- The volume level is at 84.4. Could you amplify it to somewhere in the target range of 87-92 dB?

Hello,

I've reviewed the PL notes and reuploaded an edited recording. Would this work?

Yes, this is great! Thank you! PL OK.

The edited parts sound good to me. Here are a few tips based on my experience to keep in mind for future recordings (and I welcome additional suggestions from others reading this thread who may have pointers that I don't know about):

- If you need to replace a word, it's easier to make the edit sound more natural if you redo the entire phrase (where you can see a short gap of silence before and after the waveform in Audacity) instead of just the word.

- If you want to cut something within a waveform, a trick I learned about recently is to highlight the part you want to cut and then type Z. That sets the highlighted part to where the line of the wave intersects with the central line, which helps reduce instances of a clicking sound after you've cut the section. It doesn't always work for me, or it takes trial and error, so it's best to listen again and make sure that the cut turned out the way you want.

But there's no need for more changes to your file; it sounds great as is!
