hello! :) here is section 8:

https://librivox.org/uploads/philchenevert/thehollowtreesnowedinbook_08_paine_128kb.mp3

length:11:40 mins
Chapter 7:
  • the volume is a little low at 86.7 dB
  • could use some noise cleaning
  • repeat at 5:17
Chapter 8:
  • could use some noise cleaning
  • the volume is technically ok at 90.8 dB but looking at the waveform the first few minutes is substantially louder. The easiest way to address this is to use the Normalise feature in Audacity, which will even out the volume across the entire recording and bring it within the acceptable range. I find that a setting of -2.5 dB generally works quite well.

The background noise level is great and you removed the repeat. However, the volume is now at 80 dB. If you could increase it by around 7-8 that would be great :thumbs:
