Glad you caught the bit rate error.
I had a whole batch that got exported wrong and had to be redone, but I guess this one slipped through.

Just in case this was missed.

Hello,
I do not see my sections having been pled yet. I did post 31,34 & 51 on 9/17/2018. Perhaps I am just too impatient? Please do let me know.

No, not too impatient. It's more that I'm too slow right now. I apologize. Work has been ridiculous of late. The hurricane damaged or closed a number of stores and items intended for them have been routed to my store among others, thereby, doubling our workload. This at a time when we have people out do to storm damage at their homes. I've had to put in extra hours. I'm getting us caught up now.

I checked and I can't find where you've posted your recordings to the thread. I also checked your total posts and its not there either. Could you check on your end and make sure they did get posted.

Thanks,
T

48 Volume is 83.3 dB. Should be 86-92dB.

65 and 72 are PL OK. Be aware of moving around in chair. It creaks and the mic picks it up.

We're caught up again.

Section 22 again. I've cleaned it up as much as I dare. If it's still not good, terrybenn, I will rerecord. I've had these electrical issues and noises for the past few weeks.

I was reading articles and tips on successful audiobook recording (without a big budget.) Someone suggested setting up a "studio" in a walk-in closet, which I'm going to try. It's away from house and street noise, coughing, peeing with the door open, the Dodgers, the Giants, and the lawn mowers.
