Shortening the beginning silence is not a problem. Somewhere on librivox I read beginning silence is 3 seconds. I will check on the sound again. I guess I need to amplify again and check it.
I guess I am confused about the intro.
No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording! (This I need to change)
Make sure you add this to the beginning of your recording:
START of recording (Intro)
"Chapter [number] of A Red Wallflower. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org" (This part I did)
If you wish, say: "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]" (I chose not to say this)
"A Red Wallflower, by Susan Warner. [Chapter]" (I thought this was part of “If you wish, say......)
So if I understand correctly it should be “ Chapter [number] of A Red Wallflower. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org. A Red Wallflower, by Susan Warner. [Chapter].”
How do I add “A RedWallflower, by Susan Warner”? I want to do this right.
How do I select a portion, record with messing up the rest of the recording?
I would hate to have to rerecord the whole chapter.
Don’t know how 128 was missed. I can definitely go back and add it in my recording.
I do however have the same intro mistake.
Again thank you for letting me know. I will work on this today.

*Beginning silence needs to be shortened to no more than .5 - 1 second. Looks like 3 seconds now.
*This intro is also missing the book title and author after the LV disclaimer. (... Say:
"A Red Wallflower, by Susan Warner. [Chapter]")
Not sure what to say about this. Do we also make an exception here? Or if you still have the original file of Section 42, could you almost copy and paste in this missing part? I just don't know how far one gets to 'bend the rules'.
Again, your reading is great! I've enjoyed listening to you.
