Here are my files with the edits you mentioned taken care of. I did nothing with the sound with these edits, letting that be as Larry had mentioned it was okay to do.

Sections 01 and 13 PL OK! :thumbs:

Section 03* PL Notes:
º01:31 - In "given to moods of understanding," there seems to be some kind of strange cut in the middle of "moods".

Section 10 and 12 PL Notes:
º Beautiful recordings, but at the end you should state that "This recording is in the public domain"; I hear "this poem is in the public domain" at the end of each.
At the end, say: "End of poem. This recording is in the public domain." [For 23-32 say, End of STORY. This recording is in the public domain."
Section 15* PL Notes:
º00:26-28 - I hear a stumble: "Herald's of a-reckless solitude. . ."

Section 17* PL Notes:
º01:14-16 - I hear "Her black hair. . ." instead of "Hear black hat. . ."

Section 18* PL Notes:
º00:14 - I hear "Pacing down th-late sky. . ." instead of "pacing down the sky. . ."

* For each of the asterisked audio clips: I hear a sort of tinny/mechanical echo throughout each of these poems and the audio clips sound like they are very heavily distorted.

Checker: All Passed :clap:

Larry,
It just dawned on me that I did the corrections and have not posted those so while I do appreciate your marking them pl okay, shouldn't I at least re post so the other errors are correct?
April
True.
I was just sampling for the audio issues, assuming these were the corrected files.

Hello,

Here is section 4:

Time - 2:51

Thank you!

Sections 03, 10, 12, 15, 17 and 18 are all spot-checked and PL OK :thumbs:

Section 11 (checker passed) is PL OK as well :thumbs:
- I'll add PL OK to this section as soon as links are added to the MW :D

*Section 04 did not pass Checker:
ºBitrate should be constant at 128 kbps; checker shows a variable bitrate of ~123 kbps
ºVolume should be between 86-92 dB (88-90 dB is the goal); checker shows a volume of 85.8 dB. This can be easily fixed with a slight amplification in Audacity.

Welcome!
I've added you to the catalog under your name and assigned you to Section 25.
Just click on your name in the Magic Window to view your catalog page, and let me know if you need any changes. This is where you can track all of your LibriVox work.

Need you get the final OK on your revised one-minute test?
If not, that would be good to do so you have all of the technical and recording issues resolved before recording a long piece.

WELCOME TO LIBRIVOX :clap:
