ok April, I noise-cleaned and amplified, and again, there is NO fluctuation at all. The sound is really great now. :thumbs:

I also PLed the entire chapter and it's nicely read. :) I found a few errors, which could be corrected though. Below is the list, if you think, that some are too trivial, than we can also leave them, but I want to tell you anyway, so you know what's up.

> at 1:17: "Nevertheless, he held her irresistibly within his toils." - you say only "with"

> at 1:26: "and in his physiognomy" - this word is pronounced: phy-zi-o-no-my, stressed on the middle "o", no 'j' is heard

> at 3:57: "Worn by the thong by which it was attached to the girdle of successive abbots through centuries" - you say "throng"

> at 5:16: "marmorarius" - you say only "me-mo-ri-us", while it's "mar-mo-ra-ri-us", stressed on "ra"

> at 8:32: "beata" - this is pronounced "be-ah-ta", meaning "happy". you have to pronounce the 'a' in the middle

> at 9:56: "while inscriptions upon Gothic seals" - you say "for"

as before I would suggest, you listen to those sentences or part of sentences, then try to re-record them in a new separate file with the same tone of voice as before, so that the edit will sound smooth. No noise-cleaning or amplifying, just upload them as "edits", and I will paste them in again. This worked so well last time, that I think we can do it again like this. :) (until we have worked your cleaning-problem out)

Thanks Sonia!!
I will do as you suggest and get the edits back to you in a few hours with no noise cleaning on my part.

excellent April, the edits are fine, I cut them into the finished noise-cleaned file now and re-uploaded. I put it in the MW and mark it PL ok now. The sound is very good like this, if you want to have a listen :)

Sonia,
Chapter 4 is now read and it will be up for my editing next. Though, that will probably not happen today, Thursday. Would you like for me to find my corrections and put the corrections into a separate file & get them to you with the audio for chapter 4?
:D

well you will listen again to it all, while you edit out the long pauses, the car noises, the stutters, whatever. If you find a textual error, you can re-record that sentence in another file, yes. Because if you speak the new sentence louder than the rest of the text we need to amplify it differently. So it would probably be easier to get them into a separate file. Thanks

thanks April, this chapter is now PL ok and beautifully read. I already suspected that the second wife was not too fond of her ailing husband, but I didn't expect this level of intrigue :shock: This is fast becoming highly interesting. And still we don't know yet why it's called the House of Whispers. :hmm: No whispers have happened yet at this point.

10% are done now, and this in only 3 weeks. Well done :clap:

oh and this was my 6,666th post :shock:

Sonia,
It does seem to get more intriguing and still not a single whisper. :hmm:
I will be amazed if this solo takes as long as first intimated. :thumbs:
That is a lot of posts!!! wow.

thank you April, and yet another great chapter has found its way into the MW. Chapter 5 is also PL ok. Finally Walter Murie shows up, I was sure he would be the love-interest ;)
