Thank you, Daniel! I have added your new recording in the Magic Window, marked it PL OK! The technical specs are perfect now, and the reading is again admirable.

About uploading a file with the same name, there is no problem. The system automatically renames the previous file with the same name, so it doesn't get overwritten, and I can still find it in my folder if ever needed, while the new and correct file has the proper filename entered in the Magic Window.

PS: I really like Audacity! To be fair, I haven't used other audio editors, but I have found I can do what I need in Audacity, and I consider it the Photoshop for audio recordings :mrgreen:

I just added a revised version of the technically corrupt "Ozymandias". I saved it to the uploader with the same name:

Ozymandias by Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822)

Can't wait for the collection for next month! :-D

Always,
Garfield

I love the lyrical quality of his poems.
