Thank you for your feedback.

I have moved closer to the microphone for more consistent volume and have re-recorded the first half of the chapter.

The recording lasts 15 minutes and 42 seconds.

Up to what point did you re-record? Since this is a word-perfect project, I need to listen to the part you redid.
I re-recorded the whole section. The section, 19, is the first half of chapter 11.

I have also recorded the second half of chapter 11, section 20.

The recording is 24:26.

May I please have sections 6 and 15?

Oh, I understand now :D Most of the time if you have PL notes you won't have to redo the whole section - if you have questions about how to edit things just ask.

Thanks for section 20, and thanks for claiming those new sections! :D

Oh okay, In that case I won't redo the whole thing in the future. I'll just re-record the parts where there are issues.

Thanks for the advice!

Section 20:

0:00 - "Chapter 11 part 2" should be "Section 20"

7:49 - a little blip that can be cut out - between "x to the power 2" and "Then,"

10:52 - a thump/click that can be cut out - between "(2)" and "What is..."

11:13 - a noise right after "L to the power 2" - can it be cut out easily? If yes, please do. If not, don't worry about it. :)

11:47 - another thump/click to edit out

16:51 - need to say "(5)" before "Find the maxima and minima.."

19:45 - "16 divided by 25" - I can barely hear the "25"

20:25 - "0.25 plus or minus the square root of..." pause... "positive .5 to the power of 5" - cut out some of this pause? I thought it was missing text. :)

20:40 - "on the right side of the axis" missing "of y."

24:22 - "End of section" should be "end of section 20." :)

Good job on reading all those complicated equations! Question: is there a reason you're saying "to the power of 2" rather than "squared"? It sounded like you wanted to say "squared" a couple times, but changed to the other. :)

Thank you so much for the feedback!

I want to be as consistent as possible when reading the operations.

It is natural for me to say squared, but if a listener is trying to visualize the equation as it is being read, saying to the power of two seemed like the best approach to me.

If it sounds too awkward I am willing to re-record the section in its entirety.

No, it's not awkward. Only do the listed edits rather than recording the whole thing again, and it'll be fine. :)

Section 17:

Volume is a bit high. Please de-amplify by 3 dB (amplify by -3).

11:43 - text: "hence a = 1/2." I hear "a = 1/2" (no "negative" or "minus" - whichever you prefer)

Please add about 1 second of silence to the end. It's a tad short of 5 seconds. :)

Section 17 Geometrical Meaning

11:43 corrected - (I made changes to my filter and couldn't match it exactly)

Added 1 second to the end. = 16:26

Adjusted overall gain.

17 PL OK. I didn't notice the edit, so you must have matched it pretty well! :)

Given that it's probably time to kick things to the next level, replacing General Librivox with Pure and Applied Librivox, I'll nominate for Sections 33 and 34, if I may.

By the way, it's a little known fact that, when the Ark grounded on Mt. Ararat, and everyone was enjoined to "go forth, become fruitful, and multiply", the snakes objected.

"We can't multiply," they said. "We're adders."

So Noah got out his trusty axe and adze, chopped down a few trees, made a table out of the logs and put the snakes on top of the table.

"There you go," he said. "Even adders can multiply on a log table."

Cheers,
SOTE
