Re: -20db or best signal

Clipping is where the sound system stops following the show. It's also the place where the system starts making up its own sound. The difference between classical guitar and fuzz guitar. Good Fuzz Guitar is a tube amp in overload. Remember when efficient, cool-running transistor amps came out? Every...

Re: Pitch and Tempo issue on recording changes mid recording.

it's only happened twice out of over a dozen recordings with the laptop running the same programmes in the background. Aren't erratic problems just the most fun? It's not just programs running in the background. It's the new Supervisory Programs that may, at any time decide they need sound services...

You need that fuzzy muff to help keep your headphone voice from leaking into the microphone. And you thought this was goi...

There is a soft, fuzzy recommendation. The Movie Industry's Standard Headphone is the Sony MDR-7506. Find at least one pair on any movie set. This is David Greene, NPR-West wearing his. https://www.kozco.com/tech/audacity/pix/DavidGreene_RE-20-650w.jpg Their claim to fame is a little odd. They're pe...

Re: Total Neophyte Needs Help Getting Started Recording my Tracks for an Audiobook

This is entirely between you two, but I am curious how you are going to deal with errors. Have they talked about this? You're going to make mistakes and there are several ways to announce corrections and indicate where the mistakes are so they can find them later. One note is to announce corrections...
