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.
I am not sure how it measures the 'noise' level and assume it takes the entire track into consideration. Your thoughts on the last five seconds are interesting though, I will check it out. It is very sensitive and I usually keep that turned off in my Checker, just using my ears. If I don't hear noticable noise then it is ok with me. Others who do use that measure, don't bother about it unless it goes above 40 dB or so.
Before it was carved, Mount Rushmore was unprecedented.

Don't re-record it! My ears had no problem! I actually couldn't figure out why Checker thought it was so high, other than in the end silence. :) Section 12 is PL OK :thumbs:

Oh! But watch out that your opening silences don't get shorter than .5 seconds.

PL note for Section 16:

At 32:44, recorded, "that no man is so unaccountable" should be "that man is so unaccountable"
