Here's the link to Chapter 20: Mr. and Mrs. Vinegar. Besides the test, this is the first one I've uploaded, so I hope everything is okay with it. I've had big-time anxiety about recording this. :oops:

At the end of the intro you forgot to give the author's name.
The silence at the end should only be 5s.
Volume is low (83.8db) and needs to be amplified by 4-5dB. The goal is 89db (86-92dB). Spikes in the waveform (ex. 4:45) though will prevent amplification. In Audacity the Effect/Compressor function can remove spikes permitting amplification. A video demonstrating how to do this is at the following url,

After correcting the file upload it again with the same file name. The old file will be renamed but keep on the server just in case it is needed. You're almost finished with your first file.

I knew it was too quiet and tried to fix it with amplify, but Audacity wouldn't let me, like you said. I didn't know how to fix it, so thanks for the info and the link. :D

Thanks for letting me know, I'll take Cap O' Rushes. I may take more - I've become extremely busy these last few weeks!
