The results of an audio experiment in adjusting a Librivox reading of Robert E. Howard's "The Hyborian Age" (c. 1930s). In Audacity, the free RoVee VoiceChanger was used to make the reader more deeply voiced, and then the audio was de-essed with the free Spitfish De-esser. A low royalty-free background soundtrack was then added with SonicFire.
