"A Sinister Poem," Part III:
No, Father, No!
Vows only serve to irritate.
It is to me still a perfect Mistress.
And then… Woe is me!
To vanquish temptation of sex, despise the world’s prejudices.
Passing the night in the Forest, he presented them to the Baroness.

Wording (28:25): … to prover her a [perfect] Mistress of the Instrument.

Wording (11:44): … reflected that to [vanquish] temptation was …
Wording (22:57): … distinctions of sex, [despise] the world’s prejudices…

Section 8:
Long pause (10:12): out the merits, or …. bearing patiently
Missed sentence (15:39): …[‘Passing the night in the Forest?’] He replied; ‘Oh!…
Wording (20:44): …years well, and seemed still [hearty] and strong
Pronounciation (27:21): I can lodge you and your [suite], Madam (pronounced like ‘sweet’)

HIIIIIIIII
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! I've edited all the errors but I couldn't find the Repeat (28:46): … martial chords, and then - and then chaunted… in Section 6. I think I forgot to edit this section since I'd recorded it wayyyyy before I uploaded it. Sorry for increasing your workload. I hope to upload a few more sections by the month's end.
Thanks

Oh the gloom of it all... it keeps on getting worse and worse. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. It is astonishing how mockery of one can result in so sinisterly beautiful a form of art. (IGNORE THIS PLEASE)

Maybe that missing repeat was a replay error on my end somewhere??? Don't worry about the work on my end! There isn't a big addition to my workload when I re-listen for edits since I only have to listen to those specific parts.

Section 6 is almost there. I hate to make you work on it again, but the first two edits (0:55) and (2:05) are a little too loud compared to the surrounding audio. I know how hard it is to match up something you have to re-record after the fact, so I can sympathize. Everything else in that section is great though!

Section 7 is PL OK!

Section 8
Repeat (15:39) Passing the night in the forest. Passing the night in the forest. (but after what happened with that repeat in section 6, it could be a glitch in the playback). Everything else is great!

I'm looking forward to hearing more of this book! Every time I think I know where it's going, something happens and it goes in a different direction.

Corrected, uploaded, changed the status. Also I've edited 3 more recordings so I uploaded them. Hope to put up 3 more in this week. THANK YOU FOR BEING SO PATIENT.

No worries! You've done a huge amount of work since last time! I've fallen a little behind due to work (gotta love working retail during the week of black friday), but I'll tackle these in chunks over the next few days to try to catch up.

Section 9
Word order (2:12): “And how it comes it” (should be “And how comes it)
Wording (4:19): “he may make it against himself for me” (should be “he may make it again himself for me”
Stumble (8:40): “the later was endeavo- the later was endeavouring to”
Long pause (10:15): “tomorrow without damage or hurt.’ …. “Tis plaguy”
Pronounciation (11:54): bridle (sounds like br-eye-dle)
Wording (28:17): “and while I fixed him without motion upon the door” (should be “upon the floor”)

Section 10
Repeat (9:58): “crimes in which He but but too often”
Long pause (10:47): “hoped to obtain it…. What was my consternation”
Wording (19:18): The old man would not hear of her Daughter’s” (should be “his Daughter’s”)

It had to happen...

"A Sinister Poem," Part IV:
And how comes it, he may again endeavor tomorrow?
I fixed upon the crimes which he too often hoped to obtain.
What was my consternation, the old man would not hear.

Section 11
Missing info from intro (0:05): need to add “A Romance by Matthew Lewis”
Popping (0:53): “beyond the precincts of his own domains”
Missing part (11:28): ‘Ah! Donna Rodolpha!” I exclaimed throwing myself…
Missing part (14:07): To entertain a warmer, respect for you [forbids me], and gratitude for …
Noticeable edit (16:57): As she was [falling] I caught her in my arms
Noticeable edit (20:23): End of section [eleven].

Section 12
Wording (0:24): The Lady removed herself first (should be ‘recovered’)
Wording (5:42): I will be in the West Pavilion at twelve on the night of the [thirteenth]. (should be 30th)
Wording (11:12): We are now at the [thirteenth] of April. (should be 30th)
Wording (15:04): … for seducing a young [innocent] creature to leave… (should be ignorant)
Repeat (16:52): bad her remember that on the fifth of May I should be - bad her remember…

Section 13
Audio quality: This section sounded muffled and a little distorted, likely due to the noise reduction filter. I find that if the filter is having to cut a lot of noise, it makes the remaining audio sound a little like it’s underwater. If you still have the original recording, you may be able to re-work it.
Wording order (1:07): I am thine! Thou art mine! [sentences should be flipped]
Wording (15:02): The same cold slivering seized me. (should be shivering)

Section 14
Volume: 84.3dB (should be between 86-92dB)
Stutter (24:20): Pardon me,’ re-replied the marquis;

Section 15
PL OK

[Edit]
Sections 9 & 10: PL OK

Can't get away from me that easily...

"A Sinister Poem," Part V:
Beyond his own Donna Rodolpha, I throw myself.
To entertain you, I caught her in my arms; the Lady removed herself.
I will be in the West Pavilion on the night, seducing a young creature.
Her bad; remember that.
I am thine! Thou art mine!
Thou art mine! I am thine!
The cold seized me... pardon me.
:lol:

Your edits are sounding really good lately! They're seamless. I know how hard it can be to have to go back and edit in a word and try to match the vocal tone and quality days apart or prevent little edit pops.

Section 11
Wording (11:56): and at length fainted away. Forbids me I caught her in my arms (should be "As She was falling I caught her in my arms" looks like you pasted the audio required from the previous edit point instead of the missing words)

Sections 12, 13, and 14
PL OK

Wording (10:35): Broke their cold drains (should be chains)

Long pause (13:10): …visit the Convent: … As regularly was He…
Missed word (17:25): Ah! ‘Don’ Lorenzo, you forget that …
Wording (20:55): His sincere affections for me soon relieved in his heart (should be ‘revived’)

Section 18
Volume: 93.1dB (should be between 86-92dB)
Wording (00:20): … and retired from the ‘bed’. (should be ‘chamber’)
Wording (2:18): Fortune thy lot with envy ‘binds’ me view; (should be ‘bids’)

All your sections requiring spot PL are good. I don't know what happened with that error in section 11 :hmm: . Somehow I even had the time wrong, but when I went back and found the correct spot it was correct, so that section is good, too.

Happy and safe holidays to you as well!!

"A Sinister Poem," Part VI:
A friendly glance banished your heart, and broke their chains.
The Marquis, darting at him, vexed and disappointed Leonella.
Visit the Convent regularly.
Ah! You forget his sincere affections for me.
Retired from fortune, envy binds me in death.
