Re: [SOLO] Blackbeard: Buccaneer by Ralph D. Paine-mas

Thanks Kevin! i'll post something on the thread next time I add a section.

I do run these through Audacity's noise reduction. Are you getting any background noise? Is there any other application I should be using for this?

Thanks,
Carlos

Re: [SOLO] Blackbeard: Buccaneer by Ralph D. Paine-mas

Thanks MaryAnn,

All set following your instructions below, entering the chapter titles, adding the link and duration, and marking it as "ready for spot PL".

Should I work on the book summary at once I have read the book? or is this something I should complete now?

Best,
Carlos

Re: [SOLO] Blackbeard: Buccaneer by Ralph D. Paine

Hi Kevin, All set adding the extra 5 seconds of silence at the end of Ch.1. I also raised the volume via the Mp3 Gain app and this now passed the checker validation tests with no warnings. Please find below the updated file. https://librivox.org/uploads/maryannspiegel/blackbeardbuccaneer_01_paine_12...

Re: [SOLO] Blackbeard: Buccaneer by Ralph D. Paine

Thanks for listening Kevin, i'll download the Checker program, raise the volume so it passes the Checker program, and add the 5 seconds of silence at the end of Chapter 1. Once this is all set, I'll re-upload and share the link for my Chapter 1 recording here. Definitely a fun and interesting read! ...

Re: Pirates!

Awesome! Thanks Kevin.

Should I post my chapter by chapter recordings of Blackbeard: Buccaneer here in this forum, or elsewhere? Also, when uploading, who should I select as the MC?

Best,
Carlos
