Hi, MutteringsofMe--I listened to your story this evening. You have a lovely voice, and I really enjoyed it!
I have a few notes for you to correct--
Section 17 (The Lost Ghost):
--At ~15:41 there is a repeat 'For God's sake' says I, and I never spoke so before--'for God's sake,'--'For God's sake' says I, and I never spoke so before--'for God's sake,'
--At ~26:37 there is a repeat "They said--They said the house used to look like a pig-sty..."
--At ~29:43 there is a stumble "Yes, they found that chi-poor child there, starved to death..."
--At ~30:17 there is a repeat "Well, whatever she thought, there was the child--Well, whatever she thought, there the child was, dead."
--At ~33:59 the portion in red is omitted from the recording "Mrs. Dennison and I both looked up, then out of the window
, then Mrs. Dennison she gives a scream."
Also, the volume is quite low at only 81.9 dB, so I need you to amplify by 7.0 to bring it closer to our goal of 89 dB. You might want to check out a couple of short, helpful videos: Basic Editing 101
and Amplifying a File
. Or if you prefer to read about it, there some information in our Wiki about Amplifying Using Audacity
Just FYI, many of us use a program (free download) called Checker
to check the volume on our recordings. If you want to try it, download the Current Release 0.95 version. Then if you do need to correct the volume, open the file in Audacity to amplify the track. (By the way, Checker will also provide you with other useful information about the technical specs of your recording when you click on the "Information" tab.)
If you start making the corrections from the end of your track and work your way forward, then the time stamps that I've shown will remain valid. When you have completed your edits, upload the file with the same file name, and post the link here again along with the new track length--and I'll take another quick look at it.
Please don't hesitate to ask for help if you have questions or run into problems. I know that there are a ton of details to remember, but hang in there--soon you will be doing it all without a second thought!
