Re: Problems editing audio book to pass acx

Maybe they think Closing Credits should be a minute of thanking your mum and your Uncle Jack and all the people who gave you research for the book and that guy who helped you park last week at the Piggly Wiggly. Not two words. Can you make it longer? Who inspired you to do this? Is it based on actua...

Re: Problems editing audio book to pass acx

I couldn't do it, either. I think the clip is too short.

Correct "The End" as part of the last chapter instead of two words by themselves.

Re: Problems editing audio book to pass acx

It still has to pass ACX, but yes, that's a good start. That may explain some of the noises I found on your test. There were some ultra-sonic dog-whistle noises (laptop screen scanning interference) and something that had to be laptop vent fan noises. You wouldn't get either of those so loud with a ...

Re: Lost file data due to name change of file

In this test, the name change did not affect the data access and I am able to work with the data. You mean when you changed the name and then changed it back, right? Yes, that's expected to work. If you try to open a show with one simple name change, it will just simple not open. Audacity uses the ...

Re: No bass when recorded via aux in laptop

Because you're actually recording your laptop tinny, built-in microphone, not the music feed.

Check the Audacity recording device in the device toolbar.

Re: Add "excitement" to audio

I saw an extended "LONG VERSION!" (warning) technical Q & A video.

It's 16 minutes.

Given that could be Google or YouTube trying to "help me," but still. The video is broken up into useful information as well as pointers and references rather than trying to cover everything in one long video.

Re: Add "excitement" to audio

Missed one. Remember the original complaint? If you need tons of Noise Reduction, find out why and fix it. Record in a better environment or create a tiny quiet environment to record in.

Re: Add "excitement" to audio

David Attenborough David Attenborough doesn't sound like he's talking to a kid (having an orchestra back there helps). I didn't write that in the opinion, but that's part of the "every word a gem" thing. I wish there was an easy way to shorten those dragged out emphasis words. Hank Green. I can't w...

Re: Audiobook distribution

ACX doesn't quite match up for music. ACX doesn't do music. That's radio theater and the most exciting thing I ever heard them do was brief interstitials or into and outro music and the rest of the performance is pure spoken word. You shouldn't bulk process a mixed performance. In particular, the f...

Re: Problems editing audio book to pass acx

We can't always tell what happened after you apply corrections. Do you still have that sound clip before you did anything to it? You have some odd noises in this posted clip I can't account for. Everything that's not you speaking shows up as noise in the ACX measurement, so it can be rough to nail d...
