The click on “hello” is in the 6kHz -10kHz range.
So if your speakers / headphones / ears don’t operate well in that region you’ll have difficulty hearing it.
It sticks out like a sore-thumb on the spectrogram …
Yeah, sorry, I wasn’t actually trying to keep everything quiet (wasn’t thinking). I was just looking for opinions on my voice and whether I had the sound reflection in control. Trevor, my god you must have sensitive ears! Honestly, I don’t hear any of that, that worries me. I’m not sure what clicking is. Is that a sound description or a technical term? I plan on using a solid chair that won’t make any sounds and will make sure everything is quite for my next recording that I will send to you this weekend.
I’m having to start out on the cheap. I am hoping that if all goes well, I will get better equipment and eventually build a soundproof booth in my man cave. I’ll attach a couple of pictures of what I’m working with now. I will also study up this weekend to learn some of this technology that you guys talk about. If you get to technical I’ll be lost lol.
Oh, I think I see it. There’s a little tick at about 5 seconds (there may be more). That’s not a logical place for a lip smack, I don’t think, so the computer may be doing that. That could be fun. Hope for lip smacks. Those are relatively easy to deal with.
Trying to cure data errors in the computer can be really entertaining.
There is an up side. ACX rarely rejects submissions because or human noises. Breathing typically goes straight through. This may be a good time for a test submission.
It sounds good, for most purposes, excellent. But … I can hear a motor/fan on “can opener”.
I’m not imagining it : if an extreme degree of compression is applied the motor/fan can be heard throughout …
If you want people to part with money you need to do a bit more to reduce that motor/fan noise,
We should note that the standard for background noises is some 13dB louder than your can opener. So you’re already doing quite some better than the ACX cutoff. Balance that against needing to remember to perform all your corrections for each and every chapter.
