Sorry to take so long with listening to this, I had good intentions but, alas, I continually got caught up in something else.

As usual, your recordings are great - I just love the different voices you do - I wish I could do half so well. That being said, there are issues with the length of the silences at the beginning and/or end of the recordings.

Chapter 10 - PL OK

Chapter 11 - please delete about 0.5 seconds of silence at the start and about 1.5 seconds from the end

Chapter 12 - please delete over 2 seconds of silence from the end

Chapter 13 - please delete about 0.5 seconds of silence from the end

Hope your holidays were happy and wonderful.


Thanks for allowing me the pleasure of listening to your recordings,

M

Chapter 9 has a few issues with background noise. The worst is around 10:39, but there are some other, shorter noises at 11:02, 11:16, 13:20 and 13:47, 14:28, 15:09, 16:13, and 16:34. If you could do something about at least the first, that would be grand. If you can't do an easy fix let me know and I'll mark is as PL Okay as is, even though it is not on par with your other recordings.

I must say it was another interesting story, especially the treatment of the schoolteacher and the treatment of Camillus after winning those battles. You have done another excellent job with the reading, as usual.

Hey there! I was finally able to try this. I tried a few things to lessen the mic bump noise, but unfortunately none of them worked. I would need to re-record those parts, or just stick with the lesser quality. I think I'll go ahead and just stick with the lesser quality this time. I'll try to be more aware of that in the future though! What a silly mistake! Thanks for catching them!

Thanks for the PL OK on 9. And thanks for listening to all of these. Blessings on you for that effort and time.

I fixed the ends and beginnings on the other chapters. I'm not sure why I keep messing that up. I do apologize! I will try better next time. Scouts honor. :D

Ok, Chapter 14 is also up and ready for PL. Duration is 20:08.

Again, thank you so much for working with me on this and all your patience. Let me know if you hear bumps on this one. I recorded this one months ago, just didn't get around to editing until today. If the bumps weren't removed during modification, I'll need to make some mic changes next time. Thanks!
