I don't know how many times I have lost files in no-man's-land! lol! There are just a few minor things to fix on these files. Very small, but I will let you try your hand at fixing them. If you get stuck, just let me know. I will PM you info on adjusting volume.

Letter 07


Volume: 93.2 (reduce to 89 ish)
@0:39 - long pause. Overly long pauses can be distracting to the listener. I would take one second out of your two-second pause.
@2:07 - long pause. You have three-second pause. I think if you cut in half, you should be fine.


Letter 08

Volume: 93.6 (reduce to 89 ish)
@2:05 - long pause. Cut the three-second pause in half, and it should be good.

Letter 09

Volume: 93.8 (reduce to 89 ish)
@1:14 - long pause. Cut the three-second pause in half, and it should be good.

Oops! I was uploading files for another project and forgot to change the MC, I'll remember next time. As soon as I get back to my recording computer I'll fix up the volume/pauses.

Great! I just happened to have to time to PL them today!

Letters 11 & 14 - PLOK!

Letter 12

--Volume reduction (currently @ 96.0...should be 89-ish)

--@1:15 "he seems to be...*tongue clucking*...he seems to be a man" I believe the first phrase and 'clucking' should be removed (and it should be good).

hahahahahaha! This one was utterly fantastic! I was laughing so hard it was difficult to PL! Very well done! Great personality! They were all good, of course, but the subject matter of 12 was just hilarious! Well done! :lol:

Did I miss letter #6 somewhere? Apologies if I did, and if I didn't, no worries, nothing wrong with going out of order. :) Just checking to see if I should edit the first group.

I think it was lost in Kit's computer, and it has to be re-recorded. :wink: Oh, the joys of technology. :D

Nope, like Caprisha said I lost it. I will re-record it when I get the chance, as well as edit letter 12. I'm also starting to really like the narrative emerging!

Just posting to say I won't be able to record any new material for 3-4 weeks, but I will continue to edit and upload stuff I've already recorded in the meantime.

I hope you didn't have any disasters...like your mic dying. That has happened to me. Perfectly awful! :evil: I was fit to be tied. Hope everything is okay. :wink:
