I have a trip planned next week. I think I will have to come into work a few days.
don't worry about us :lol: enjoy your trip. Worst case scenario if you are gone for too long and we want to catalogue this project, then one of us will PL the final sections for you, no problem ;) Just let us know. Wouldn't want to stress you during your holidays.

super, thank you, Craig !!! will check immediately your DR part.

Though the other section, the solo poem needs to have "various" instead of "craig" in the file name ;) But let's wait for Anthony's review, if there are no errors, I can change the filename in my folder.

DR narration PL ok and already assembled :clap: butter and eggs and a pound of cheese :lol: what a refrain !

Careful though, your bitrate was variable here. I changed it immediately here but maybe you want to check whether the solo is also the wrong bitrate !

How do I check the bitrate? I've never had an issue with this and not sure what to do.
Sorry

:shock: you mean to say you never ever used the Checker for your recordings ? It's a wonder your volume is so great each time.

http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Checker

I use it with all my recordings before I upload, so the tech-specs and volume are all correct.

I checked...your bitrate is also variable in the solo poem. Do you use Audacity ? Somehow your settings must have been changed manually, otherwise it would not simply have changed like that. You know how to change them ? It's when you export to mp3, you can set them there.

I reduce peeks manually and if needed normalize around .5.
I'll have a look at checker.
Are the recordings recoverable with checker?

why do you keep posting double ? :hmm:

what do you mean by recoverable with checker ? Checker only checks the technical settings and the volume and noise floor. But if anything is flagged, then you have to go back to Audacity (or another program) and change it there. It's only a checking tool, not an editing program

Bad signal. Not quite sure if they sent so hit it twice.
Look at the recordings tomorrow. I was just concerned that I may have to start from scratch. But I think you are saying that I can correct the bitrate without recording from scratch.
Cheers
