This chapter claims Deimos has enough atmosphere for wings to work - and also to safely open an airlock chamber. I ...

Re: The all-new "HELP! I have an Audacity problem" thread

4.) Is there a feature like a clipboard where you can just save the boilerplate introductory opening and closing recordings and plop them in like an "insert picture" feature in Word? At this time, I'm having to go into previous recordings copy sections of that recording and paste them into a new pr...

I fixed the line in question and re-uploaded, if you don't mind giving it a spot check.
It's perfect. Chapter 4 is now PL OK.

Re: [SOLO] Tarzan and the Ant Men by Edgar Rice Burroughs - dii

At around 9:14 do you say 'un-pricked ears' or 'up-pricked ears'? That's an important enough difference it might be worth a fix. I'll mark the chapter Check PL Notes and let you decide. The high pass filter makes a small difference - not enough to warrant re-uploading the previous chapters, but enou...

Re: [SOLO] Tarzan and the Ant Men by Edgar Rice Burroughs - dii

Chapter 3 is PL OK . I'm enjoying this tremendously, thanks for picking it and reading it. I made the mistake of trying out a homemade pop filter, without doing any test recordings to see if it was effective... Turned the editing process into tedium trying to find and correct all the plosives and pe...

Thanks!

Chapter 2 is PL OK - word-for-word perfect, in fact.

I never would have expected an airplane. That's one way, I guess, to get Tarzan into some new area of the jungle.

Re: [SOLO] Tarzan and the Ant Men by Edgar Rice Burroughs - dii

Matt -
You must have exported the chapter again, as the checker program says the audio level is nearly 2 dB louder than your first upload (and right in the middle of the OK range). I listened again to make sure everything was fine - it is.

Chapter 1 is now marked PL OK.

Onward!

Re: [Children] Uncle Wiggily in Wonderland - philc

Oh No! Beatrice Bumblebee is missing! Maybe she saw one of those angry hornets and buzzzzed back to her hive. I'm positive, though, she made sure someone got chapter 12 to the MW. Stay safe, Beatrice.

Re: Continuity of accents

One of the great things about collaborative works is the variety of voices and accents. I especially like it when readers include their names and hometowns - I get the feeling that people all over the world are reading to me. (And they are!)
