A reader's mail and my reply.

Dear Mr. Ram K,

I started this blog in 2008, when I do not know any thing much about computer. As I was posting or tried to post every day, I learned a lot by err and learn method. Thanks to my son, and my cousin's daughter who are computer professional, I could learn a lot and make this blog presentable.

Then at the age of 67 I went to an institute and learnt photo shop and Sound forge mainly to edit the concerts. Do you know, how many hours it takes for a LKG in computer to tag a concert and split the songs in the concert and then to upload to mediafire and then to the blog with a photo (if necessary done in photo shop)?

Apart from that many concerts of old stalwarts were recorded on those days without proper equipments. I do not have the expertise to remove the disturbances. With my limited knowledge when I do that we may lose the continuation of the song. Even now a days, there is lot of disturbances in concerts, People give least respect either to the art or to artistes and a carnatic music concert is a pathetic scene. People come as and when they want and leave as and when they feel like, moving around making noices, talking all the stories with their relatives or friends as though they meet after a long time. There are people who come to concerts to talk various matters. They drag the chairs with maximum noice, cough, sneeze and what not, apart from eating by making noises. Now a days I hate to go to concerts since I am not able to tolerate these disturbances.

I will be very glad if you could do that and send it to me, so that I can repost them with perfection. There are millions who downloaded these songs, and many may be professionally equipped to perfect them but no body bothered to offer their services. Or they might have done it and kept for themselves without bothering to share. I am trying my level best to present as best as possible and if there is still any lacuna, I am helpless because of the constraint of my time, age and energy etc. I am a heart patient in extended life with "sorbitrate" always in my pocket and an oxygen cylinder by the side of my working table.
Hope you will appreciate my interest in sharing and pardon my inefficiency.

Very enjoyable blog. Great uploads.

I find 'Goldwave' a good software for cleaning up audio recordings but then, I only use it to remove hiss/crackling from the recording, occasionally even balance the 2 channels, if I find that accompanists drown out the main artist.

'TagScanner' is a useful software for editing the tags.

I will put my time and energy to find some noise removing software.

Besides that, people are really annoying in concerts. So insensitive, I find the youngsters better behaved. Its the older people who make much of the whispers to what i have seen. I also find Shishyas dancing behind the main artist very annoying for every line their guru sings. Pray god throws some sense there as well.

...that not everything has to turn out exactly the way you
planned in order for you to call it a success.

Sometimes all God wants you to do is to "get the ball
rolling." Then, She'll take it from there. So when things
turn out other than the way you wanted them to, don't
be so quick to say, "Bummer!"

Many a Bummer is a Blessing in disguise. Consider the
possibility that life is magic...and that there's a rabbit
in that hat.
