Hello! I just finished my first ever recording! Any feedback would be greatly appreciated, even if it's just little things.

Title: The Doorway
Author: Evelyn E. Smith
Recording: https://librivox.org/uploads/alg1001/ssf062_doorway_smith_nv_128kb.mp3

I hope everything is in order.

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!

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. :)

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!
Amy :)
Hello Amy,

The recording has been amplified and re-uploaded under the same file name. I'm am still learning about my audio editing software, so I hope I got it amplified to an acceptable level. If further tweaking is needed please let me know. Thanks!

Hi Mike,
This happens occasionally. We have this story in this batch already. I will save it for the collection 063. It will be a good way to start that one off.
Thanks!
Amy

Mike
