I am a bit rusty and may need to tweak/adjust my audio-recording equipment/software. Let me know if that is okay. thanks!

I can't seem to get my audio input high enough to hit the 0.5 mark in audacity. Any ideas? I already cranked up input to its maximum.
I got the volume fixed but I may have to re-record this one because my initial recording was too low volume.

This seems like a really fun project. Any way I could do
16 Continuation Of the Match With Harrwitz
and
13 The Café de la Régence
as well? Thanks!
I fixed my audacity settings so the recording is a little better now.

John, you're in for 13 and 16 as well, thanks!

Are you going to redo 12 or just try to amplify? Please let me know if I can put the section into the MW...
Cheers,
Ava.

Here are editing notes for Section 12.

You have some plosives (air rushes on consonants like b, d, and p). While these are not serious enough to call for corrections here, in future try to send your voice to the side of the mic instead of directly into it.

1:25
Missing sea-
"was dreadfully sea-sick"

1:51
Used oppotents' for opponents'
"acquaintance with his opponents' capabilities"

2:08
Used and have much for you have much
"you have much difficulty in getting"

5:48
Used quickly for quietly
"I led him quietly down"

Need five seconds of silence at very end.

Cheers,
