Sorry, but I am not technically advanced enough to advise you as to the process.  I am certain that others will be able to help.   AP

Michael HR,

Could you e-mail it to me.  Also, we'd really appreciate if Laura could post it in frozentears.org

Hey Guys!
Thank you Michael HR for taking the time to email me the file! It does sound much more cleaned up!
I too have trouble distinguishing the first voice from the last, but I had that problem before the clean up.

Without further ado, here is the file:

Wow! I was a little bit surprised that that was Nicky. His voice is not at all as I imagined it. It is much darker - but I like it! It is amazing that this recording has been preserved!

Voices of all members of IF has been saved. But, they're lost, as far I know.

Voices were recorded and sent to Dowager Maria Feodorovna. What happened to them, I don't know.

Thanks very much for this link.  Anyone clever out there who knows about military procedures back then?  It would be possible to merge images of reviews, Nicholas, etc, to give a visual sense of what is happening in the dialogue.  But first we would have to be sure which voice is the Tsar's.  Does he speak only at the end, or is that his voice also halfway through?

This version is somehow better than the original AP link. Thanks to those who achieved this. Now, is it too much to ask what was being said? I think I got about six, seven words the first time through.

The recordings were made by the Edison company.

I would presume they were lost during the revolution.

Is that Nicholas's voice throughout the entire clip?

Thank you so much, Laura!!

I used some audio restoration software, EQ's, compression and reverb through Logic to clean up the sound. Also made it into a stereo file and hope you all like it.

I think the first is the Army person introducing Nicholas as you hear him say Nicholas Alexandrovich at some point. Then Nicholas then the singing and then I think NII again but I may be wrong.

Is that Nicholas's voice throughout the entire clip?

Thank you so much, Laura!!
