Chapter 6.

Optional: For standard PL this chapter is PL OK. From 24:13-24-43 found on page 155 the popping is extremely frequent. It might even be mic bumps. Whatever it is it hurt a bit. I use headphones to PL. We always recommend you do so when you edit.

If you don't want to record this section again you can toggle to PL OK.
Thank you, Linny.

I will try to redo that part of section 6 on Saturday and see whether it can be seamlessly integrated with the rest. Not sure where the bumps come from. I tend to act with my whole body so it's possible that vibrations from the floor are coming up through the table into the microphone, which I don't otherwise touch at all during recording.

I've had a really busy day today so I can only PL one section.

Chapter 7
Page 164 - 6:37 word change – “As soon as I heard the uproar at daybreak, and the kazaks began to fire, I seized my kaftan, and without stopping to put it on, rant at the top of my speed…
I hear stooping. It seems to change the intent.

EDIT: oops, I just had to listen to one more.

Chapter 8 is PL OK. :D

Thank you, again. And the rate you are PL'ing is perfect. But please stop finding mistakes ;-)

I will change chapter 7. It was not my accent this time.

The fun part of PL'ing is the waving through and writing "PL ok" :-)

Chapter 9. There is one spot that is still a little too loud. I think an amplification of 1.5 should do it. 27:24-27:32

I'm sorry I didn't PL yesterday. I wasn't feeling well. After I get caught up on PLing my other projects I'll try and get back here for at least one more chapter.

Sorry you didn't feel well. There's no urgency from my side regarding speed. I'm a bit linear, so I'd like to finish this project before starting something else but that's all.

I have reuploaded chapter 9 and it's ready for spot PL.

Yes, that was quite a roar, even for me. I think I wanted to capture the indignation of honour offended.

When reading character voices just step back slightly. It will keep the intent of the emotion without being such a dramatic volume difference. I find I just have to transfer my balance to my heals and that enough. You'll likely need a bit more distance. :wink:

I hate seeing a project complete and waiting for PL so this project is definitely a priority for me. Start planning your next because this will be complete soon.

Thank you.

And that's a good suggestion about stepping back, although for that particular part I've had to have gone next door.

Chapter 9 still seems loud to me in that spot. I didn't specify using the minus sign on the amplification. :oops:

I really wanted to hear the whole story so I listened to chapter 10. I agree it's PL OK.

Chapter 11 is also PL OK. :thumbs:

I'll be back after lunch.
