section 6 is excellent :thumbs: only the volume is a bit on the soft side. if you would amplify the section a little bit more it would be perfect!

Carolin,

Duration 53:43

I've raised the volume 10%.

Please advise if that's okay, and if low volume is a general problem in my recordings that you've heard. (In life, I'm the other way round:)

Sorry to give you headaches, and thanks for your efforts.

Just and update. My main computer crashed and burned its hard drive, and I have been using a loaner notebook. Yes, I do backups so I only lost a little data, section 9 being some of the data I lost. Just got my new hard drives installed and am up and running. Opted to go with 2 hard drives and Raid 1 for redundancy. I should be able to submit section 09 in a couple of days.

Do you mind sharing how you come to find out the exact DB of a recording?

I've got software of every nature, I just don't recognize where any of 'em tell me that figure.

most of us use mp3 gain (a quick google search should get you the download). it determines the exact volume of a recording. i suppose it also contains a tool that raises or lowers the volume to 89 db but i read somewhere that it was more advisable to use audacity for that. im not sure about that though. i hope the next audacity version will include a tool that determines the db value as well :D

"most of us use mp3 gain"

CK,

Thanks for that, gottit.

For recording, I think I'm getting closer to the correct balance between volume and noise, and this will help me to check stuff before submitting it.

Thank you.

usually, youre fine volume-wise when your waves peak between 0.5 and 1 db on the scale on the left side in audacity. thats how i figure with my own recordings. i use mp3 gain only to be certain ;)

mp3 gain is great to check the volume - the reason we don't recommend it is that people use it to adjust the volume as well and this can cause big problems
It doesn't amplify the file , it adds a litle bit that says - play me louder. Which only works on some mp3 players and doesn't work at all when the files are burnt to a CD for use in CD players.
So check the volume if you want - yes . Adjust the volume with it - no
