Thank you!

Hello, this passed PL, but there is a ~6 second silence between the intro and the reading of the chapter. Larry, is this ok? I marked the status as See PL Notes for now.
Marginal, but I agree, the pause there is a bit long for natural listening. Probably about 2 secs is better. There are also some clicks (sounds like a mouse scroll wheel) that could be edited out.

I would gladly read the part of the narrator in “Asmodius”, ch. 15.

One question...Is it correct that I just pause and leave space where the other parts will be read ? Thank you.
That would be great!

I've provided a color-coded script for that chapter.
You will find the link under point 4 of the intiial post under the link to the book.

Narrator is all in black.
Read your voice credit " Narrator read by -- your name --
and read the intro as given. The other readers will do their voice credits.


Leave about 3 seconds between your narrator lines. They are mostly short ones, with a couple of short paragrphs.

Read the outro at the end.

Let me know if you have other questions or need halp with this.

Hi. I am having trouble finding the color-coded script for Asmodius. The appbox link for Asmodius seems to contain the script for Visitor. And I can’t seem to open the Visitor link at all. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I feel a little dumb as I did not understand this chapter AT ALL. I think it was supposed to be humorous but I just didn't get it. Oh well lol

I'd love to have you make your LibriVox debut here!
I see you don't have a report on you test recording yet, but I thought I'd just do a quick check, and there are several issues.
First, the bit rate is incorrect. We require a constant 128kbs. So, chose this when you export in Audacity.
Second, the volume is a bit low at 86.3 dB just inside our lower range of 86-91 with 89 dB being our target.
Third. I hear a lot of background noise. Part of it is hum from the computer (some Noise Reduction can help this) but I seem to hear some music, like a violin, unless it is some audio distortion.
Oh, and minor, but something easy to fix. We ask for five seconds of silence at the end, and you have four. The beginning is fine.

So, I'd suggest uploading another test with the above corrections made and getting an official report.
Meanwhile, I'll add you to the LV catalog and assign you to Section 4.

Glad to have you! Your actual reading is quite good, and you'll soon have these technical things well in hand.
Let me know if you have any questions about the above.
~ Larry

Hello. I posted the above back on Feb. 6. Perhaps it was missed. Just wondering if anyone has had a chance to listen and see if it passed muster. Thanks.
