Hi, great job reading. I am really enjoying listening.
I've listened to the first two chapters and noticed that you didn't read the names of the chapters. Was that a choice or an oversight? I really think the chapter titles help set up the listener for what is coming. The Prisoners, The Haircut. But if you chose to not read the titles, that's OK, just thought I would ask.


I noticed that with the first section, you only left about .3 seconds of silence at the beginning. The default is for .5 - 1.0. Did you know that you can Generate Silence in Audacity. Just look at the top of the menus and you'll see GENERATE>SILENCE. You can generate what ever you want. You can cut what silence is there and then generate however much you need. It makes a nice clean silence with no background noise at all. I use that section for my Noise reduction profile.

I gave you a PL OK for the Section 1, :clap: but if you add the chapter title, just upload the new file and mark it "REady for Spot PL. "


Section 2. I know I'm only suppose to do a standard PL, not word for word, but there is a sentence you left out at about 11:35. "He left the trees and stood for a little while by a stone, one of the 124 which formerly enclosed an atrium." is missing. You went right to the next sentence. After you splice in the sentence export and upload it again and mark it REady for spot PL.


I'll try to get section 3 done today and save the rest for tomorrow.

:D :D :D

I am overjoyed that you are enjoying my reading, thank you.

I did leave out the chapter titles intentionally, I feel that sometimes the chapter titles give away an something in the story. Like I was reading a different book, and this Texan was supposed to be drawing a white or black bean, white to live, black to die, and the chapter title was "Wallace Draws a White Bean". I just think titles sometimes give away a part of the story.

On Chapter 2, I will have that ready for you in probably about 30 minutes...

Thank you for your cooperation,

Edmonds

Section #3 sounded great , but there is only .1 or .2 seconds of silence at the start. You can generat .5 seconds of silence. Then re export and re upload and mark it ready for spot Pl.

I'm glad to hear that you left out the chapter titles intentionally. I would hate to think it was an over sight.

I see that you up loaded section #2 again, or at least it looks that way. Someone , maybe you? , needs to put it in the Magic Window and mark it ready for spot PL. That's the only way I know that the section I PL will go to the catalog. \\

Sections #5 and #6 are sounding good, but both lack enough silence at the beginning of the section, each being closer to .1 second than .5. Section #6 is OK for silence at the end, but Section #5 is closer to 10 seconds at the end than 5. Once you get those taken care of it will be PL OK for both.

I think the silence is important for the final project to be placed in the catalog correctly.


Looking forward to hearing the rest of Ned's adventures.

What was wrong with chapter 4? I see it says "see PL notes", but I can find no PL notes to see. Please help!

Sorry about that. I tried to get too much done in one day. From my notes it looks like Section 4 only had .1 sec. of silence in the beginning. I'll try to get the others PL OK ASAP.
