Section 21 has been fixed and re-uploaded. I went ahead and fixed the running time in the MW, Jeanny. Hope you don't mind!

PL for 00-Introduction:
0:00 No chapter number listed before title of book ("Introduction to..." maybe"
3:07 only 2 seconds of silence at end of recording
Volume way too low by 12-16dB?
ID3 V2 tag: Title as Title as “huntingdogs_00_hartley” instead of "## - Section Title"
otherwise great!

I thought that the file name was to be as above - “huntingdogs_00_hartley”. That's what it says on page 1. Also I don't know why the volume would be so low as I did everything the same as I always do. How can I adjust it if it is too low? Do you want me to add "Introduction of Hunting Dogs" to the very beginning? I do say it a little later on, if you have a quick listen. I will add the extra 3 seconds silence if necessary, but let me know about the other stuff first, and then I will fix everything up and re-upload.

I did say that it is chapter 11 so I don't know what you mean? :?

Hi Jedopi,
I took a look and a quick listen to the beginning of the file (00). It is much too quiet (Comes in at 80DB, when we aim for 89 DB). If you could amplify it, that would be great. Are you using Audacity? If so go up to “Effects” then “Amplify”.

The intro for this file should read exactly as follows:
"Introduction of Hunting Dogs. - This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
"Recording by [your name]
"Hunting Dogs, by Oliver Hartley. Introduction."


As for the file name, yes you do have that correct. What Josh is referring to are the ID3 tags, which are missing – but have the file name for one of them.

They should be as laid out in the first post:
ID3 V2 tags
(To find out more about ID3 tags, go to our wiki: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/What_is_ID3)
Add the following tags to your .mp3 file (how you do this depends on which software you use – if you are unsure about ID3 tags, send me a message). Please mind upper and lower case!
Title: ## - [Section title] (Which you can copy directly from the MW for the section)
Artist: Oliver Hartley
Album: Hunting Dogs
However, don’t worry about the ID tags for this project if you can’t get them to work. I can fix them easily in cataloging.

And yes, the extra three seconds at the end are necessary. There must be at least 5 seconds at the end of a file if the recording is less than 30 minutes. 10 seconds if the file is longer than 30 minutes. This is because some mp3 players will cut off a recording before the end.

I checked the file. As Josh says, the very beginning "Chapter 11" is missing. The very first thing said should be "Chapter 11 of Hunting Dogs."

PL for Chapter 2:

Intro and Outro are OK.

Nothing problematic with silences/pauses, repeats, or garbled sections.

Recording level: Looks like there's some clipping in a few places. Sound levels vary a bit.

I just noticed that 12 and 13 are also missing the same intro as 11 was. I will fix them up and re-upload as soon as I can.

Hi Jedopi,
Thanks for fixing the Introduction. Please wait with the re-upload of sections 12 and 13 until they've been PL.ed (there might be more edits needed). This way, we can save some space on the server. :)
