PL notes for section 2:
PL ok! :thumbs:

8:05 background noise. It sounds like the rustle of clothing. It doesn't bother me just something I wanted to point out to you for the future.

Still a few mouse clicks but spread out so they were not distracting. Were you able to modify your recording style to make this easier for editing? I hope so! I know my editing takes ages. :shock:
I edited the initial project :thumbs: .

I am editing out the clicks manually as I go along, but I must've missed a few. It takes a while but the results are worth it.

Excellent! You've got this! :clap:

Opening silence is a little long but other than that you are PL ok!

Opening silence only needs to be between 0.5 and 1.0 second. You are at 1.6. You may want to edit it down a bit, but if not definitely add start and ending silence to your list of things to check during final edit.

Now that you are off and running you may want to post for a DPL. You can find a thread on PLing here: viewtopic.php?f=21&t=17680 The third post down is FAQ for BCs/soloists who need help with PL and provides the information you will need and a template to use.

I'll keep an eye on you until a DPL is found. :D

I shortened the opening silence and re-uploaded it.

I will search for a DPL, thank you for keeping an eye on me until then :oops:

Perfect timing. Just last night I was wondering about you.
Section 4:
PL ok :clap:

Background noise is showing at 40dB. We try to get closer to 25-30dB. Please double check your noise cleaning settings. This section is fine and I didn't notice it when I listened.

You have a couple of areas which are quieter than other areas; e.g. 7-8:00. You might benefit from using the leveler on your future recordings. The leveler increases the low areas while lowering the high areas. Alternatively, the compressor lowers the high pieces allowing you to amplify more. I haven't used the compressor but I believe Phil has videos on each. I'll look for them and edit this posting with links.
EDIT: Here is the page with all the videos. http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Instructional_Videos
Here are the ones on compression:

If you don't mind, how about if I take the role of DPL? At some point I might need to step away but for now it appears I've adopted your project so we might as well make it official. :wink:

Hi all ! You are doing great and hope you are enjoying the book.

Just a note about section 4 - Linny's mention of the noise level and the difference in volume levels are just notes for your information and your do not need to fix it or re upload it just for that. As she said, she nor I really could not hear it making a difference especially in a standard level proof listening.

Keep on going!

Actually, I was playing with audacity and trying to figure out how to do that but I couldn't. Thank you for the tip, I will definitely use it in my next recording.

Also, I am SO glad that you're my DPL :clap: . I have already learned a lot from you. Looking forward to finish this book together :D

Thank you for the prompt. I'll listen in the morning.

Phil, may I get MW access, please? :help:

The first 4 minutes or so are a much lower volume than the rest of the track. I found I had to put my volume up to the max and still struggled to hear you. You might consider amplifying this portion.
13:26 I didn't check the text. Please see if this is a repeat "PCN, you know"

When you post your sections, if you provide the starting page number I'm more than happy to check the text for you when I have questions like this.

Also, I don't know French. If you would like to get a bi-lingual PLer I would understand.
