P.S. Story 28 has lots of foreshadowing that the old gentleman rabbit's fortune doesn't rely on gold or diamonds, but on friends, family, and home. And, of course, cherry pie.

Checker reports your audio level is outside the LibriVox allowable range - the section is 84.7 and the OK range is 86-92. It looks like you could boost the level 3.5 dB without any clipping; that would get the section in the range.

at 0:23 (in the introduction) "Uncle Wiggly and Kitty Kat" is repeated

at 5:07 "with the double-jointed [tail]" is repeated

at 7:45 "toast with some yellow slices of yellow carrots" - too many 'yellow's in there. It might be hard to edit out, however, so perhaps it's best left alone.

Please boost the overall volume and delete the two repeats - and possibly the extra carrot if you can make a clean edit - and everything should be fine.


By the way, I notice your recordings have very little audio below 150 Hz - are you running a filter on your recordings to do that? (This is just fine; there isn't much of anything below 150 Hz in the human voice. I'm just curious.)

I'll do those fixes asap. Might just re-record it because its fun.

As for filtering, I don't think I am. Maybe I pressed something along the way. I'll try and fix it if I can.

Don't bother trying to change it - if you are filtering something out it's going to be the sound of a refrigerator running so such like, not something you want.

Yes, it is a fun chapter.

at 6:39 there is a missing phrase: "And just then a little voice whispered:" - but you change your voice so it's obvious there's a new character speaking. Leave it as is, imho.

Everything else is fine, so I'm going to say
Section 8 - "UNCLE WIGGILY AND THE CLAM" - PL OK

I haven't seen this chapter - did it fall through the cracks?

Again, sorry for the wait. Here's 28 at 8:21.

Story 28 - "UNCLE WIGGLY AND KITTY KAT" - PL OK

As a note, Checker reports your overall volume at 91.9, which is very close to the maximum allowed in the LibriVox specs. It's in the range, so it's OK.

And that means our last chapter is checked in! Lynnet can now add it to the catalog. Huzzah and thanks to everyone.
