Hi Amy... What a learning curve!

This is with compression only and no additional amplification. It passed "Checker" but will it pass the human test?
Try this and let me know?

Hi leknarf,
Nice reading!
You recording needs two adjustments: reduce the opening silence to one second and reduce the closing silence to 5 seconds.
Please resubmit after you make the edits.
Cheers!

Hi Amy,

Seems my s/w was counting bars instead of time. Apologies. Fixed and re-uploaded:

Hi Nathaniel,
That was an eerie ending. Good job.
The only issue with the recording is that the ambient background noise is noticeable. Please noise clean it and resubmit the recording.
Thanks!

Hi Dale,
What a cool little story! PL OK :thumbs:
Thanks!
Amy

p.s.
Sometime this year "Penny Dreadful: City of Angels" is supposed to come out. It is going to center around Mexican-American/Mayan supernatural entities, even chupacabra; Should be fun. Who knows where they will go with it? Nowhere pleasant! If you haven't seen Penny Dreadful, don't on my account. It is quite macabre, but I love it, especially Eva Green's character. This story just sparked my imagination of what is to come on the City of Angels installation.
