I'm Hating typography.

Rubbish or what?
I've lost the ability to post piccitures
Oh no it gets worse
There but huge and mis-shapen

Tramp Tramp Tramp these boys is marchin'

Today we finally got out for a walk.

It's been weeks - or at least seems that way.

Late start - T**ts up the road had a party.
Didn't wake me but woke Sandy which woke me.
Then I couldn't get to sleep again.
Neither could she.

Late getting up.
Late setting off.
No much daylight (16:30 it's twilight (what a lovely word))
Not much walk.

I thought with the terrain turned on Stanage Edge would be impressive but it's one of those things.
You have to go and see it, then climb up it.

Ripped - Again

... the ripping resumes.

Currently I mostly been processing a greatest hits choice from the lovely S.
S**te loads of Iggy.
Cream o the crop currently
This with "Raw Power" guitarist.
Which other individual got an equal credit with the Ig?
I can't think of any.

I'm using Audacity some build, 1.2.5 that I should update but it's okay.
Give the disc a good clean whether it needs it or not with the trusty Milti Duo-Pad and Permaclean, then finished up with Exstatic cleaner
Zoom the display area to 1:00 hour, hit record, pause, stick disc on , unpause and off we go.

  • Catch the end of side one,
  • pause,
  • flip it,
  • unpause
  • and record side two.
Save the project.

Give it default "Effect>Click Removal"
Then Zoom in on any surviving clicks and get them with the pencil tool.
Then "Effect>Amplify" (again using defaults - I refuse to think unless cornered).

Remove the crap at the

  • beginning ,
  • middle
  • and end

w/ "Edit>Cut"

Then we've gotta chop it up into tracks.

Analyse>Silence is ok but I end up correcting it too much - so I add a label track.

"Project>New Label Track" and appleB (it's a Mac thang - think CtrlB) to add labels.

"File>Export Multiple"

Choices mp3 (obviously)

any naming you like but remember to include "before first label" option
(unless you've added a label at the start of course)
