Thanks! If you're working on One Smart Pup, please name it bestdogstories_04_various_128kb.mp3 as per the instructions in the first post. ;)

I'll check this one here in a few minutes and get you some feedback. I do see that your volume is too low by about 4 dB, and your bit rate is variable. I'll get you instructions on how to fix these when I'm done listening.

Section 3: Excellent reading! Just a couple edits to make:

0:01 - please insert "Section 3 of Best Dog Stories" before "This is a LibriVox recording."

34:14 - please remove "end of Best Dog Stories by various authors" (that only goes on the end of the book, the very last section to be recorded) and put instead, "End of Section 3."

Are you using Audacity? To fix the volume:
- Highlight the whole recording
- Go to Effects/Compressor
- Set it to Threshold -17 dB, Ratio 5:1 (leave the other settings alone)
- Run it
- Then highlight the whole recording again and amplify by 5 (the compression lowered the overall volume slightly, so 5 will do to bring it up as much as we need).

To fix the bit rate: When on the Export Audio screen where you enter the file name, change the Bit Rate Mode to Constant and set the quality to 128 kbps.

Please name the file bestdogstories_03_various_128kb

Thanks! 8-)
