Hello, could I please record for section 9, The Romance of the Beautiful Swede?

PL NOTES:

Section 2 - The 'Bonnie Prince's' Bride

Just one small issue. The volume is a little high at 92.9dB. It should be between 86-92dB. Just lower it a bit and re-up for the ok. Thanks!

Ok I tried using the Leveler in Audacity to fix the levels for chapter 2, and then I re-saved the file. I started to upload it, but it says that there's a syntax error at position 0? :help:

I've never come across that one :hmm:

It could be just a hiccup of the system and work if you try again today, or it could be a problem with the file name if there is a space in it or something. Try again and should it not work, re-export the file from audacity, that should fix it :)

PL NOTES:

Section 2 - The 'Bonnie Prince's' Bride

Hi, the volume actually is higher now at 95.8dB. I am not a recording artist here, but I understand that it can sometimes be a little confusing how to use audacity. If you ask Carolin she can help you out I am sure. On the other hand, there is a wiki page that may help;

http://wiki.audacityteam.org/wiki/Audacity_Wiki_Home_Page

Then on another note, it may help to be able to test the dB of the files to save yourself some headaches. I use mp3gain and Librivox Checker. Links below;

http://mp3gain.sourceforge.net/

http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Checker

Download links are provided at both sites.

I know this can be frustrating, but you will get it and then you will have it down for eternity. Keep up the great work! Thanks for helping out!

PL NOTES:

SECTION 05 - A Queen of Hearts

Just one small thing here. The silence at the end of the recording is about 2.5s and should be 5s. Just extend that a little and reup for the ok.
