Check - not forgotten, just slow (and being distracted by PLing duties! :) )

Section 19: The reading's great, but we need to notch the volume up a bit. ReplayGain is suggesting that it needs to be amplified by 3.7dB; you've only got 1.5dB of headroom though before you start clipping so you'll probably need a little light compression too.

Thanks for catching the volume! Volume amplified and file re-uploaded.

Urgh! My French is rustier than I thought it was. I'll need to brush it up a bit before going there on holiday in a few weeks...

Thank youuuuu! I'm a bit swamped and away from home at the moment, but I'll try to squeeze some PLing in as soon as I can, so we can get this baby catalogued! :D

Marvellous reading, Paul! I find Burton's trashing of other editions hilarious :lol:
No comments on the reading itself, however, I noticed that all throughout the section there are instances of clipping, and the distortion is audible. Could you run it through a round of compression and reupload? :)

Thanks, Foon. I can't hear any clipping on my copy, but in case the file got damaged somehow in transit I've remastered it. I've also fed it through a decrackle filter in case what you're picking up on is the pollen-induced fry that I always get at hayfever time. :(

I did a quick download and listen to the last section, and it seems OK to me. Are we ready to catalog, Foon? :)

Thank you Tricia! I'm on low key holidays at the moment, and I'm having very little computer time... Thought I'd be able to listen sooner. Yes, if it sounds good to you, I'm very happy for us to head to the catalogue!! :D
