PL note for Chapter 9:

@ 14:48 Background noise: "Lots," said Cassowary, "his *noise* grandfather came from Fetlar in the Shetlands."

PL notes for Chapter 4:

@ 17:21 Extra words :wink: : "...one of the hind legs of the unsuspecting lamb. *remark* Mr. Devering was a pretty clever man."

Also, your recording is a little soft some areas, but turning up the volume makes the other areas quite loud. However, this would probably be an issue only for those listening in noisy environments, such as a car. You don't have to fix this, but if you do want to, I would recommend the following steps:

- Hit Ctrl + A to select your entire recording
- Click Effect > Amplify...
- Next to Amplification (dB), type in 3
- Click OK
- Now click Effect > Compressor...
- Next to Threshold, move the slider to about -20 dB
- Next to Noise Floor, move the slider to -40 dB
- Next to Ratio, move the slider to to 4:1
- Next to Attack Time, move the slider to 0.10 secs
- Next to Release Time, move the slider to 1.0 secs
- Make sure the boxes next to Make-up gain for 0 dB after compressing and Compress based on Peaks are NOT checked
- Click OK
- Again, click Effect > Amplify...
- Next to Amplification (dB), type in 4

Lovely reading! :clap:

Also, what would you like your catalog name to be? That's the part where you say, "Recording by..." It can be your real name, your forum name, or something different. Just know that it can't be changed because that's what gets read into the audio files. Also, if you'd like a link to a personal website or blog to be included on your catalog page, just let me know.
