Thanks! I show the run time as 6:41. :)

The bit rate is variable; needs to be constant. All else is OK. Would you please re-export at constant bit rate and re-upload? Thanks!

Section 44 was in stereo. I converted and re-uploaded it; so all are now PL OK.

Thanks for remembering the "end of book" part of the outro! 8-)

Thanks Tricia! Odd about 44 being in stereo. I still had Checker open and sure enough it shows section 44 as stereo, but it never occurred to me to check the validation tab. Status always shows as "Failed" anyhow because of the 128kb in the file name and poems typically being too short to make it happy. I didn't intentionally change any settings and 45 was back to mono as were the two preceding files. I looked in the manual and found how easily to correct stereo to mono, but haven't yet found how to do the reverse. I imagine an errant click or two split the mono track into stereo, but what they were I haven't a clue. :?:

Huh! My checker doesn't choke at file length or the _128kb in the file name. Which version do you have? (Help/About) Mine's 0.96, and I have it set to "gentle" in the Validation menu.

I've accidentally made files stereo when my mouse goes rogue and slides that L/R slider over - the one to the left of the wave form. Yours didn't show much volume variation in the channels, so if this is what happened to you, it didn't move the slider very far off center. *shrug*

I’m away from my laptop for a bit, but I’ll check the version later. I did have the slider off center. I was getting feedback in one earphone so I moved the slider a notch or two to one side. I’ll have to fiddle with that and see if I can recreate the problem. It didn’t seem to help my feedback problem anyhow. I often knock that slider way off center when I click in that field to highlight the whole track, but I usually notice that as soon as I start listening to the playback and mono is more mono than usual :roll:
