Infuriating is the word...gotta watch that liquor industry.

Any feedback is welcome :)
Section 14 sounds great! Just a few little things:

- At 0:22, you repeat "Chapter 12: A New Impulse." Just one of these is needed.
- At 14:32 (p. 180), "refused submission in 1911," it sounds like you start to say another word after "submission" but it gets cut off.

What an interesting if infuriating story about the referendum in Michigan! :shock:

Section 33 done!

Section 33 sounds great! Just a few minor things:

- At 5:06 (p. 416), "had the country produced," you say "had the county produced."
- At 8:46 (p. 418), "The voters of the States," you say, "The votes of the States."
- At 12:26 (p. 419), "having for its purpose the change," you say "having for its purpose the charge."
- At 13:15 (p. 420), "The cases were defended," you say "The cases were defined."

Hi rholoubek. I'll sign you up for section 26.

As this will be your first recording for Librivox, please have a look at the Newbie Guide to Recording and also read carefully through all the notes in the first post of this thread if you haven't already done so.

Even if you are experienced with recording elsewhere, please send in a short test recording to check that all the technical settings meet LibriVox requirements before recording a full chapter. 

1-minute test

I've added your catalog name to the database. You can see this on your catalog page at http://librivox.org/reader/15337

If you click on the link for Reader Section Details below your username you will find a summary table showing the status of all the sections that you have signed up to read in open projects.  Click on any of the thread titles in this list to navigate to the thread on the forum.

Thanks and welcome to Librivox. :)

Hi rholoubek,

We usually do tests in the Listeners Wanted forum, but I've had a listen and checked the settings on your test recording. Good job! All the technical settings are good and you can go ahead and start recording your section.

The only thing I would recommend is that you could consider applying a little noise reduction to tone down the background hiss. The default settings in Audacity should work well. You can try it out on this test recording and see what you think.

Thanks, rholoubek. Your section is in the MW ready for PL. When you post a link to a recording, you also need to post the length of the file in mm:ss. :)

-rholoubek
Section 26 sounds great! There are just two minor things:

- The volume is at 85.3 dB, which is just under the required range of 88-92.
- At 12:20 (p. 348), "with every substitute proposal," you say "with very substitute proposal."

That Bilgrien statement was something else! :shock:
