Re: Suggestion: Add Producer Role

I recently came across the LUFS setting. It seems that this is the way that broadcast media and streaming services are going (although there are differences by country and service).

Re: Time to Finish a recording?

I'm still a relative newbie. For most texts, I probably record 15 minutes for 10 minutes of finished audio. I don't ever stop the recording, so if I need to practice pronunciation this is included. It takes me about 15 minutes to edit (starting at the end), starting with noise reduction, then editin...

Thanks! I'm OK leaving them in. PL OK!

Hello Adrian,

This series of videos was one thing that prompted me to volunteer. I was looking on how to join Librivox and I found these videos. Thank for putting them out there.

I'm pleased you found them useful, Antonio. I can die happy now. :D
Best,
Adrian

Thank you, Adrian. Do footnotes (or not) at your discretion. And thanks for the pre-claim of orphans! Moving to Readers Found... Hello Tricia, I put the footnotes in on the basis it's easier to remove something that's already there. Happy to remove if you want. https://librivox.org/uploads/triciag/...
