And I've posted the link in the MW and added the time length etc in the Notes box in the MW. Do I now need to do anything else?

One more thing. Change the status to Ready for PL. And Carisa will see these posts and be along to do your PL soon. In the meantime, you're free to get started on the next section.

Section 00 PL Notes

The first thing is to change the name of the audio file to have section 00 instead of 01. Since it is the preface, we don't want to mix it up with the first chapter.

The level of the audio is a little over the desired levels. It is about at 92.7 dB when we want between 88 dB and 92 dB. It can be fixed with slight negative amplification if you're using Audacity.


Other then those notes, it sounds great and I really enjoyed the topic. Great Job!

Could you check I've got the volume right now? I find it hard to judge myself.

Section 00 Spot PL OK

The sound was perfect. To check the sound yourself and other components, I have linked the wiki page for a recording checker. It should be able to give all the information regarding the Checker.

Nice, Andrew, looks like you're getting the hang of it! :D

One thing that is still a bit off is your file naming. Looking again at the first post, you can see that it should be: ideaofauniversity_##_newman_128kb Every file needs to have the 128kb at the end, regardless of its size. (It refers to the bit rate, which is the same for all of them.) The only difference between file names will be the section number.

No need to re-upload anything at this point. I can rename section 00, since it is already PL ok. If Carisa finds anything else that needs fixing in section 01, then you can correct the name at the same time. If not, I can correct it. :)

Section 01 PL Notes
The file size for the recordings don't have to be on the end of the name only the 128kb. There isn't any other PL Notes so when mightyfelix fixes the file name for section 00 she could delete the file size on the end of the file names for both files and add the 128kb.
