Hi David,
I like your singing. Nice reading.
There are a few technical issues with the recording. It needs to be have a bitrate of 128kbps. The bitrate needs to be constant. Also, please amplify it be 2 db.
Please update the file and resubmit it.
Thanks,
Amy

Hi Amy,

Sorry about that, looks like my audacity settings changed and I got careless. Changed the bitrate and amplified the audio. It's all set and done, finger crossed for no more issues. Thanks and have a pleasant day.

Hi Lisa,
These are very engaging!
The Odyssey is PL OK.
The Prophet has a repeat at 42:08 to 42:11 of "Evidently, once it gets a flash about a certain event." Please chop that out and resubmit it.
Thanks!
Amy :)

And... chopped! Link to updated file below. Sorry about that, Amy & thank you! I knew I'd miss something in that one. *sigh* (Let me know if these should be renamed when resubmitting in the future. I automatically default to the save-server-space-and-overwrite option.) :D :) :D

Thanks again and I hope you enjoy the weekend! ~Lisa

Hi Lisa,
PL OK. Thanks for updating it! :thumbs:
It is best not to change the name. The new file will automatically replace the other in the MW so it works well. The system adds characters to the files it writes over so they are not lost.
Have a wonderful weekend!
Amy :D

Hi Nefeli,
After prooflistening, the only updates needed are to reduce the opening silence to one second, and to reduce the closing silence to five seconds. Please adjust these are resubmit it.
Congratulations on your first recording!
Amy :)

Hi Miranda,
Nice story! All this recording needs is amplification. It is at 83 db and our target is 89. Please amplify it and re-upload it.
Thanks!

I did this one for the April Challenge. I've never yet done any sci-fi for LV, though I've read a fair amount for my own entertainment. This is a really cool story I found. :)
