Section 23:

What I mean by "stumble" is that you make a little goof, then correct it. Such as now at 4:53, I hear "Bacchio Velori, and a Nic- [click] Niccolo Acciajuoli". This could be cleaned up to sound more like "Bacchio Velori, and Niccolo Acciajuoli." :)

And at 5:28, I hear, "to repent their sec- their action." This could be cut so that the audio will simply say "to repent their action".

The section abruptly ends at 6:05. Perhaps it didn't upload fully? Try uploading it again.



Section 24:
There is a lot here. It's best to work from the end forward; this keeps the time stamps the same regardless of the changes made. :)

0:00 - Need the entire LibriVox intro: "Section 24 of The Medici, Volume 2. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
....If you wish, say: "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web
"The Medici, Volume 2, by G. F. Young."

0:02 - "Up to this time... Cosimo had lived" - longish pause in here

0:57 - "And also emphasized the fact that he" - I hear "and also emphasized that the fact [long pause] him that he..." Please cut out "that", the long pause, and "him".

1:04-1:12 - "Other rulers around him...Gonzaga at Mantua" - there are noises in this portion of the recording. Please re-record and replace this portion.

1:48 - "Cosimo suffered to remain as it was" - I hear "suffered to rule.. remain as it was" Please cut out "rule" (it may require a quick record/replace to get the "to" in there.)

4:30 - "With the description of his appearance given by..." I hear "description of his experience" - please fix

Please amplify 0:00-5:37 (up to "Charles and Francis to come to Nice") by 5 dB.

5:52 - Missing some text. Text is "success he eventually achieved in getting them to agree to a truce which caused a cessation..." missing text is bolded.

6:10 - "policy of alliance with France," [some vocal noises] "Cosimi throughout his reign" - please remove noises. :)

6:21 - "opposing the operations of the French in Italy" - loud plosive on "France" (and it was read as "operations of France in Italy" - which isn't a big deal, but since you're fixing the plosive anyway...)

7:09 - "that the emperor was in need of funds, until he..." "funds" is cut off, there's a weird click, then "until he" fades in.

7:36 - text is "by increasing Cosimo's power increased also Charles's feeling..." You are missing "increased" and have a big breath in its place. :)
Oh, wait - you say "also Charles's feeling of security was increased as regards to Italy." I guess that's OK, but please remove the big breath.

7:46 - "peace was made for a time" loud click/plosive on "for"


8:47 - "Europe as a whole." (new paragraph) "In 1546 the Strozzi brothers... " would you please but a little more space between the two paragraphs, since you're in there? Readers need a little time to process a change of subject. :)

8:50 - text: "Came to an end by the death in the early part of that year" I hear "came to an end by the death of a century in early part of that year."

10:00 - "advice to Charles V., urging him" - longish pause in this

10:02 - text: "Urging him in a letter of the 6th February 1547". I hear "urging him in a letter of the 5th, or 6th, Jan- February 1547" please re-record and replace

11:03 - text: "this hope he shall carry with him to his grave." I hear "this hope he shall carriage to his grave." please re-record and replace

11:37 - "lawful head of the family and the rightful ruler of Florence" - long pause in this and a repeat of "the" :)

12:11 - loud noise in this: "Knowing the dangers which were around him"

13:15 - text: "and to extinguish, if possible" I hear "to distinguish"

14:19 - I hear "agreement that Sin- Sinea's, Siena's ancient form" - please remove the wrong parts. :)

15:25 - please insert some space between the paragraphs: "tended to create peace in Italy. [new paragraph] In ten years"

17:38 - I hear "on the design which had... CIA emergency response team... one hundred years before" - please remove the CIA portion.

18:25 - noises in "a hundred years later". Please re-record and replace

18:29 - please add a bit of space between "duke and his court" and "Be this as it may"

18:46 - text: "it was a plain oblong building" I hear "it was a plain, quite plain, oblong building"

18:51 - text: "with seven windows on the front which faces the Via Romana, and without either..." missing text in bold. Please add.

18:59 - text: "side of the latter (running back at right angles to the facade) which now form..." missing text in bold, Please add. (Also, "which now form" sounds like "which is now -orm" with the F cut off) - maybe just re-record this portion also.

20:37 - need to say, "End of section 24" followed by 5 seconds of silence.
