Thank you, Cloudancer! Could you also post the duration of your file in minutes and seconds? That way we can easily see if the uploader cut anything off when a file is PL'd.

Thank you for a very nice recording.
The only thing that needs attention is the volume which comes in at 92.6 dB.
Our target is 89 dB with a range of 85-91 dB.
If you are using Audacity, just select the Amplify feature from the Effects menu and it to about -3.5
And, before you export it, just trim off about one second at the end so that the silence there is closer to 5 seconds.

Upload your new file under the same name, post the link here again with the new file length.

Let us know if you have any questions or need help with this.

Thank you! Oh sure, sorry I completely forgot to check that. Is this version better?
This one is 34:34 minutes long.

Hm I'm a little confused that it's the exact same link as before... Shall I alter the name of the file a bit? Or does it work?

This is perfect!

And, yes, you did it correctly saving it with the same file name, which gives the same link, but it now points to the updated file.

Thanks again for the fine recording! :thumbs:

This is fine except that you need to say at the end "End of Chapter 6."
Your recording would also benefit from some moderate noise cleaning.
