It has been an exciting technology FUBAR’d month. This fall I’ve had my laptop crash. This is a beloved laptop that I do my writing on and narration. The Z key no longer works so I have to plug in an external key board. The power cord only charges the battery if I set a rock on the cord to hold it in just the right position. Like I said beloved.
When I reinstalled my audio software things did not work properly. It sounded awful. After two weeks going back and forth with the software tech support I resolved that I’d blown the sound card.
That led me on a search for a new computer and limited funds. My partner purchased a cpu desk top model for my new set up. It is wonderful. I have two monitors all is great.
Then the next challenge. My second audio contract for ACX was rejected. Now I’ve spent two weeks on line with the quality control specialist there and the result was a new microphone set up for narrating.
It’s wonderful. I will probably have to go back and re narrate six chapters for one project and 9 chapters for a different project but it will be much better in the long run.
Problem one is it does pick up road traffic two blocks over and the click of my mouse wheel. That is while I am inside my PVC fort sound booth I built last week.
It never ends. LOL
So today I built a sound studio box for the new microphone to sit in and we’ll give it another go.
A big hug and thanks for my authors that are hanging in there while I stumble through this mess toward quality production for them.
Take a look at my new books tab for the books that I have narrated!
