Hi, Anna! Welcome to LibriVox!

And thank you for helping with this project. :)

I've got your recording loaded into the MW. I can't formally assign it to you, though, until I make a Reader page for you.

So, I need to know what name you'd like us to use for your Catalog name. This is what the public will see on the audiobooks that you help with.

Some of us use our real names, others use the forum name they work under on these boards, and others make up a different psuedonym.

Just let me know what you want for yours, and also let me know if there is a link for a personal web page that you want included. :)

If it's easiest for it to be one word, I can use "Gaby" as my Catalog name. I don't have any links to include. Thanks!

It's no problem at all to have more than one word, so let me know if I should go ahead with the sole Gaby, or if you'd like more to it. :)

Hi! This is recorded very nicely. The only editing that needs to happen is to fix the silences at the beginning and end.

In the front, the silence needs to be between .5 and 1 second (it is over 3 seconds right now).

At the end, the silence needs to be beween 3 seconds and 5 seconds (it is 11 seconds long right now).


If you open the file, then zoom in the track so that the half-second marks show, that makes it very easy to clip out the extra portions. Once that is done, re-export to mp3 again, re-upload, and post the link with the new time. :)

La Llorona is PL OK :thumbs:

One minor note for future consideration - the volume just barely comes in at the lowest decibels for LibriVox recordings. You might want to bump your recording volume up just a wee bit for next time. :)

Also - here is your personal Catalog Page: Gaby.
It will list every project you are a part of, both in-progress and complete, and it has a link for lists to every section that is assigned to you.

Glad to have you with us!
