OK, sections 1-3 have updated intro/outros and section 4 is ready for PL.
Hi, there -

Section 4 is PL OK :thumbs:

The very beginning of the Section 3 intro is an odd-ball out in the whole set of sections. (It has the name of the chapter instead of "Section 3" opening the file.) If continuity is important to you, that's an easy edit, but let me know if you just want to let it stand as is.

I think that was poor timing on my part, since according to the thread posts, you noticed section 3 was uploaded before I edited the intros. If not, something strange is going on, since the version I can get from the current link has "section 3" at the beginning.

Section 5 is ready for PL.

I didn't mention this earlier, but I've been tracking the file time lengths in the magic window notes.

Yeah, that's perfect, to put the times in the MW notes box.

Marked section 3, and Sections 5 and 6 are both PL OK :thumbs: :thumbs:

Section 12 is absolutely fine, except that Checker thinks the background noise is a little high. Did it already get some Noise Reduction?

No, nothing yet. How do I see the noise level in the Checker? All I see is volume, DC bias, and clipped audio. Or are you looking at the waveform shape?

Section 13 is ready for PL.

Under Validation > Validation Methods and it gives you a check box to see background noise. I just use my ears but this is how it is done.

Thanks. The noise detection seems very sensitive; I faded the audio out for the ~5s silence at the end, and the noise measurement dropped to 25% of the original value.

Section 12 is ready for spot PL.

Edit: It occurs to me that the noise might be measured only from the last five seconds. If that's the case, I might need to re-record that section; I don't have the earlier version I uploaded.
