A Christmas Carol, Stave 1 preview

Just to give you a quick preview of what I’m working on for later this month, here’s
A Christmas Carol, stave 1, preview recording.

I’ve heard a number of recordings of ACC, and I don’t really like any of them. Patrick Stewart’s is pretty good, but it’s abridged. There are several complete recordings, but none of them seem to know what the book is about.

For those of you who have been listening to the Edward Lear recordings, sorry for the interruption. 😉

The Pobble Who Has No Toes

Trying again to produce a podcast, this time using my iSight as the microphone, and HackTV as the recording software.

Turns out that the iSight (an Apple product) isn’t a supported input device for Garage Band (an Apple product). I find this more than a little disappointing, but there’s not much I can do about it.

Anyways, this is The Pobble Who Has No Toes, which is another poem by Edward Lear. I’m rather disappointed by the quality. Quite a lot of echo. But this could have more than a little to do with the fact that I have no idea what I’m doing when it comes to recording. I don’t know what gain means, let alone any of the other options. But, perhaps I’ll arrive at perfect settings by experimentation.
