That was brilliant, Nick! Thank you for your recording! You don't need to add a suffix _mp3 in the filename, if you export from Audacity, it adds the suffix .mp3 automatically. I will fix the filename before cataloguing so all is fine! Marked PL OK in the magic Window! :thumbs: Thanks for the kind ...

Re: [GROUP]Dreams Collection 2 - Stories and Poems-ag

You've re-recorded the whole poem? Or just made the changes specified? Re-recorded. :) Okay, but you could have converted the stereo to mono with the push of a button, and there was only one other change to make, and renaming the file is nothing much, so I'm sorry that you started from scratch. Now...

I've redone it. Hopefully it's okay, now. Details the same as previous excepting that it now runs at 10:10.

Great news!
Thank you for your help/guidance
