My Latest Experiment: Recording Bible Passages May 7, 2008

As part of some work I’m doing with my church, I’ve been recording audio of the relevant passages in the Bible for a given Sunday. Here are the three chapters that we’re using in April/May:

Matthew 5

Matthew 6

Matthew 7

Feedback is always welcome.

[Ed Note] In one of the auto-generated links below, “The BIBLE has a VOICE,” you’ll find links to “The Bible Experience,” which is a full dramatization of the Old and New Testaments. Clearly, as one guy sitting in a recording room, operating the recorder myself, I’m not trying to reproduce this. I wouldn’t begin to try. If you’re looking for an intensely dramatic reading, where the reader tries to take on the “voice” of the Biblical characters, then I recommend The Bible Experience. It sounds awesome. Here, I’m doing my best to “disappear,” and let the words themselves take on the drama. – Tim

They sound great!!! Are you going to post more, please.

2. Tim - May 7, 2008


Thanks. Yes, as I have the time, I’ll probably work my way back and hit chapters 1-4 first, and then we’ll see where it goes. I’ll post the links here as well as the church web site (ph-church.org).

It doesn’t take a ton of time to do, as I’m able to clean up a few minor gonks in Adobe Audition pretty quickly. What I’d like to do is see if I can rearrange my schedule to have me in the office about 15 minutes early every day. That would give me time to knock out a chapter a day. – Tim

They sound great. Im bookmarking you and want to hear the rest.

Nicely done! The audio quality is quite good.

fyi – you can get free downloads of the whole New Testament here – http://www.faithcomesbyhearing.com/ygtt/abq/ . I’ve been listening to these on and off for years.

I also recorded myself saying individual Bible verses and used them on my iPod when driving, mowing the lawn, etc. to help memorize them. It worked really well.

Thanks for the tip on the site and for the feedback. I wonder how they’re making the royalties work. (Strangely enough, every version I’ve found other than the NET Bible, which is what I’m recording, requires the payment of some form of royalty for distribution. I find this strange, given whose words they are. 😀 )

You’re right about memorization. That’s something I’ve done for drama in general, but I’ve noted that my memory of Matthew 5-7 is dramatically better having worked on this a bit. – Tim

Zune and iPod: Most people caopmre the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
