This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://legamus.eu/blog/?p=988

The Mysterious Universe by James Jeans 1877- †1946
One of the earliest of the popular science book genre, it is a philosophical summary of the new physics of the era by a leading British physicist. Keeping technical references to a bare minimum, Jeans argues that physics has entered a new age in which mathematical representation has supplanted mechanical models.

Hi Peter,

Sections 00 and 01 are PL OK.

I see this is from the Wellcome collection. If you ever want to read anything else from their collection, ever, please give me a shout. They're wonderful, and I try to visit whenever I get to London.

Section 02 is PL OK. The tags have been omitted - I don't think that's an issue, but I've left a note in the MW so that it can be checked closer to cataloguing.

Hi Peter,

Two notes for section 03 - there are no tags, which is not the end of the world, and it's in stereo. The file itself is absolutely fine. Could you please upload in mono for spot checking?

Hmm. I thought I put tags but maybe I don't have the process right.
Will re-upload, in mono this time, and try putting the tags again.

Are you using Audacity? I suspect not, because I saw something or other about GarageBand in one of the lines when I tried to check for tags. The tags can be dealt with as and when, but I thought I'd mention it as they're not automatically added by the software like they are at LV.

This makes no difference to this project, but at the end of this month and early in July I'll be away from my desk, if I seem a bit slow to respond.

When it's just about the tags, don't worry, no need to re-upload. I'm having a look at them anyways when catalogging.

Stereo/mono is different, of course :)

Thanks, Viktor. I thought you checked the tags but wasn't 100% sure.

Peter, for reasons unknown the new file is in stereo. I don't know what part of the system got its knickers in a twist, but could you have another crack at it? If that fails, the other thing I can think of is that I can try to upload it and you can spot check the file I send.
