Okay, I trimmed the silences at the beginning and end, so this should now be in compliance!
it is, thank you, this is now completely PL ok
Congrats for your first official section
Yes, I'm still using a USB microphone. I tried a couple analog microphones but didn't have a very good experience with them. They were both condenser mics intended for musical performances, and were way too sensitive (lots of feedback and reverb that proved too difficult to clean up). I'm currently using the Samson Q2U, since it's specifically recommended in the Librivox guidelines.
yes I think that is quite a good microphone. I am wondering what causes the sound though.
It almost sounds as if there was clipping, which happens when you are too loud, but you are barely over 86 dB, so that can't be it. Or did you decrease the volume after recording ?
I think at the end its technically 4.7 seconds, but this was as close as I could get without going over.
no well, we are not THAT picky
5 seconds is our usual setting, but as I said before, I would have accepted the 6 as well. And 4.7 is absolutely fine. I'm only mentioning it when there are more than 6 seconds, just in case the reader didn't know about the 5-second-rule, then it's better mentioned once, before it gets more and more with each recording.
But you definitely don't have to be on the dot at 5.00 seconds. That would be insane
Thanks again, and see you again for your next section
