Thanks for the PL notes. I've made the changes to Chapter 11 and uploaded via link below.

https://librivox.org/uploads/alg1001/marquisdevillemer_11_sand_128kb.mp3

db = 90.7 length 28.36


Regarding the plosive sounds, I've been grappling with them right along. I have a good mic/headphone( Logitech G35) and have adjusted the distance several times. Very frustrating. WIll try again with a hosiery filter.

Enjoy the weekend.

PL OK, thank you! I hope that the filter helps with the plosives - I can understand that it's frustrating to still encounter them after trying different approaches.

Great, thanks! I guess I'll go with my real name (Sarah Rothwell). Sorry, didn't think you needed that info until I uploaded the file. As you noted, I'm new so still getting the hang of it all! :)

Hi -
I just uploaded Chapter 12 for your review. (Tried the recording with the "hosiery" filter - hope you find that to be better).

db= 91.3 Length 25:19


Thanks - please let me know of any changes.

Chapter 12 sounds great, and I can definitely tell a difference in terms of plosives! I have just a few notes:

- At 0:20, could you include "The Marquis de Villemer, by George Sand. Translated by Ralph Keeler" before "Chapter 12"?
- At 2:04, "good-nature or thoughtlessness," you say "good-nature of thoughtlessness."
- At 2:59, "the most ingenuous," you say "the most ingenious."
- At 9:49, "already shrewd," you say "always shrewd."
- Could you include the last two paragraphs, starting at "The Duke plunged deeply into these reflections..."?

Thanks, Lisa. After fixing chapter 12, would you like to continue with 13-15?

Chapter 6

https://librivox.org/uploads/alg1001/marquisdevillemer_06_sand_128kb.mp3

Time: 24.55 (just over)

Can I then volunteer for chapter 9?
Chapter 6 sounds great! I have just one note: at 10:15, "in a humiliating position," you say "in this humiliating position."

The corrections to the text are good to go, thank you! Just one thing about the intro - could it follow this template?:

"Chapter [number] of The Marquis de Villemer . This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
If you wish, say: "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
Say:
"The Marquis de Villemer , by George Sand . Translated by Ralph Keeler ( - 0) [Chapter]"

Thank you! Just one quick thing and then you'll be all set: could you edit out the silence at the very beginning so that there's between 0.5 and 1 second of silence?
