Hi Rich... while I'm likely the last person you want help from as far as recording/importing audio files, I listened to it and it doesn't sound that bad--sounds like conversational speech. I didn't notice anything that I'd call tin-cannish. But you'd be the better judge of the quality since you have the originals.
Maybe it is just me. I am comparing to the Lynda.com website. Some say when you listen to your own recorded voice it just doesn't sound right anyway. I will be interested to see if others feel as you do.
I know I can't stand the sound of my own voice... reminds me of Rusty from Make Room for Daddy
It sounds okay, but also a bit muffled and tinny.
First I don't think you should be recording at 96 kHz. CD quality is 44.1 kHz and flash can tend to have issues with values that are multiples of 11 kHz. So 44.1 or 22 are better choices. So that could be part of it.
The other issue is 24 kbps is a pretty low bitrate. I would recommend that you not go below 48 kbps for spoken word. And maybe even try 56 kpbs. I often find that is the spoke where the quality really starts to dive.
Thanks. Just the kind of info I am looking for. I will try out your suggested settings.
