Hi Roshni!

Good recording - interesting story! Here is your feedback -

Please remove 2 seconds from the beginning of the recording - 3 seconds is too long - it should be approximately 1 second at the beginning.
6:34 – stumble and repeat to remove – words should be “a very wise man”

That is all! Please upload again and note the new time for the recording when posting the link.

Hi SilentKnight -

There are some issues with your recording. I am not going to PL it right now as it is a bit hard to listen to.

Please fix the following items and re-upload it with the new time and then I will be happy to PL it. Please let me know if you need any assistance in cleaning the file up.

The file name fairystories_20_128kb.mp3 should be re-named fairystories_20_shimer_128kb.mp3 as outlined on the 1st page under the Magic Window
The audio has a high level of background noise which need to be cleaned. The line should be horizontal and without waves when you are not talking.
The volume falls outside of the target range (86–92 dB). It is at 96.3 dB
There needs to be 5 seconds of silence at the end of the recording.

EDIT: Try Noise Reduction - it worked on your recording for me and cleared up both volume and noise. Highlight whole recording and select Effect - Noise Reduction - Get Noise Profile. Then with whole Recording still selected select Effect - Noise Reduction and with 12, 3.00 and 6 with Reduce in the lower box entered press OK. That should significantly clean things up. Then Export and see how your recording is at that point in time.
