When compressing classical audio files with Audacity to play in the cab, threshhold -24db, ratio 3:1, attack time 0.1 seconds seems to get good results.

"She Looked Very Pleased With Herself"

Mira swam for the first time last weekend on Saturday May 14 and I recorded this video on Sunday May 15. We have had a lot of rain and the pond is as deep and clean as it ever gets.

The Official Mira Swims Soundtrack Album is the full cuts of:

Horst Jankowski, "A Walk in the Black Forest" from a chewed up old copy of Mercury SR 60993, "The Genius of Jankowski". This takes me back to finally learning to swim at the Grand Ledge Country Club in 1965 or so.

Aram Khachaturian, "Trio for Clarinet, Violin, and Piano". This LP, Melodiya C10-08783, leapt into my hands from a bin at Encore Recordings. The performers are Rafael Bagdasarian, Victor Pikaizen, and Arnold Kaplan.
