Anyway, the piece was submitted and I will not delete it (+1 for Einaudi)

If you let your recording run for a few seconds before starting to play, Audacity has a great plugin that will sample this ambient noise and then filter it out of the entire recording. You may lose a little overall tone in the process, but it's fantastic for reducing hiss.


Please don't apply such a filter.

I did use it once for speech and it sounded garbled. Like it had been thrown through a very low quality mpeg encoder. Yes it removed the hiss but much more than that...

People can all apply such a filter themselves if they think it's necessary.

I agree. The music is more than just "audio" with all it`s imperfections! In fact, it`s more than just piano too.

Wouter may have had a bad experience with this, but it worked well for me, this time around anyway. If you listen to my MP3 (filtered) vs. YouTube (not filtered) you can judge for yourselves. smile

Contrats, Carlos, on reaching your 1000th post! And what better post to commemorate it with than announcing your successful recording for the recital!

(Here I must confess that I have been waiting to hear your take on Two Trees for so long that I shamelessly abused my recital admin privileges to check it out--er, that is, I wanted to assure you of its sound quality--and it was worth all your agonizing! Beautiful performance, great sound quality. thumb I like how you improvised the Live From Home variations, too!)

This has got to be a record - or something odd floating around in the world wide interwebs - there are FIVE pieces by Debussy in this recital.

I'm in. I skipped Roaring Jelly jam (sic) this evening to try to get something I was happier with than just "I guess I can live with it." So now I'll turn my attention more towards the Joplin recital - if I can get that even to this tempo I'll be amazed happy.

I am really looking forward to this recital - and I have Friday free! so I can listen when it comes online! yea!

A while ago I tried that filter in Audacity too, but without success. The resulting sounds was garbled and didn't sound at all like my piano. frown I decided to live with the hiss.

Well, I've submitted Faure's Pavane, but I hope no one shoots the piano player.

Nice list of submissions, I'm looking forward to this.

BTW, while Debussy may have 5 submissions, the total Faure count will be tripled after this recital.

I wonder if it's been improved recently then? I had the same problem back when I tried to use it with my 1st recital submission back in February, and I wound up living with the hiss, or I think I dialed it back only minimally. This time, it worked like a charm and I didn't even have to change anything from the default settings. The effect I'm referring to is just called "Noise Removal".

One key to using it effectively is that you have to get an absolutely dead silent spot (aside from the hiss) from your recording.

Ok - in at least 19 hours earlier than I usually am, but even more unprepared than usual. If I get home in time tomorrow, I might try again. This is the only night I had to record and we all know how THAT works out..

Well, I managed to get a recording done yesterday. Whew. I thought I was going to miss this recital!

I had a look at the recent submissions and see even MORE wonderful pieces I'm really looking forward to hearing!


Carlos, I'm so glad you got your problems sorted out!

Hi Cas,
me too but, I sometimes get confused with dates and sorts of different recitals, when will these be available for listening?

If you go to recitals.pianoworld.com , there is a handy countdown timer to when the recital goes live (more or less, depending on when the lovely and gracious Monica works her magic). There will be two threads in this forum - one for the recordings and one for comments.

Thanks Sam,
I do have this link on the desktop, I guess I just never noticed a "countdown" thingy. I'll look again. BTW, your effort at keeping this recital collection available is much appreciated. <insert standing ovation>

Oops different link to the page for submitting pieces. I see the countdown now grin I was thinking of where we can actually listen. Thanks Monika AND Sam.

<-- Looks up from where she's been busy ironing her "AB Forum Recital" superhero cloak in readiness for tonight's festivities.

Ragdoll, the recital closes at 9:00 pm. Not long after that (10-15 min) I'll start the main recital thread, which will have a link to the online streaming player that will let you start listening right away. Creating and uploading the zip files takes a bit longer, and I put the individual posts/links up one by one as I can fit them in around the other tasks. The people at the top of the queue get their links posted pretty much right away. The last guy in is usually uploaded around 11:00 pm, later if I hit a computer glitch.

This might be a good time to add the reminder that if you are new to the recital, or if you've had problems submitting your recordings in the past, please submit your pieces now and not wait until the last minute. I'd hate for you to encounter a problem and me not being able to fix it in time for you to be included in the recital.
