jyro,

Great job on your chapter! Only a couple of tiny little things I noticed that need fixing--

34:44--take out "not" (should read "that you do want men")
35:36-40--repeat "Sir, I would never find"

Other than that, everything sounds great! :thumbs:

Thanks BookAngel7!
I've fixed it now and re-uploaded, with a run time of 39:26.

That's okay! I struggle with the different voices too. :wink: Thank you for your section. I'd love to give you another... :P
Then Alayna, I think I shall do another! ...but maybe a shorter one this time. I'd like to read Chapter 19: Deep Laid Plans for Checkmating Mr. Bones, please.

Finished with Chapter 19! I found this one to be recorded much easier than the last.
Run time - 13:58

I think I'll hold off on more chapters ...for now :)
Again, I'd be happy to know if there's anything that needs adjustment. Thanks!

Chapter 10 spot-checked and PL OK!

Chapter 9 is very nicely read! The only problem I had with the file is that there are quite a few spots with noise (mostly thumps or clicks) in the background. I've noted the places below where I heard noise, but please note that it's not necessary to fix every single one! :shock: If the spots where the noise is loudest or lasts longest could be cleaned up, a few little thumps in the rest of the file won't be nearly so noticeable! :)

0:00
4:42
6:08-17 (squeaks)
6:45-7:48
9:45-58
10:40
17:43
18:09
18:32-34
19:20-29
20:11
20:56

Thanks!

ETA - Sorry I missed this the first time, but the volume (for chapter 9) is just barely lower than the recommended threshold (86 dB); just a touch of amplification should fix the problem. :wink:

Oh dear I have an idea what those bumps and squeaks are, besides my putting down the kindle. My daughter woke up at one point in the recording. I couldn't hear it too well myself on my cheap speaker though. Thanks for catching them!

That's fine! Thank you for your chapter. I'm still very new to recording, and usually have to go back and edit the file quite a bit too. :P
