Narrator ch. 25

Lynette,
You have an extra track in this file. There is nothing on it. When I mix them it brings your overall volume way down. No harm, just thought you would want to know.
That's not good - let me see if I can fix it.

OK, this is crazy weird. I still have the original Audacity file for ch. 25. It has only one track. But every time I export it to flac, it comes up with 2 tracks. ???

Any ideas why it would do that (and how I can fix it)?

EDIT: Somehow, that chapter had got a stereo setting somewhere (even though the main Audacity window showed it being mono). I found a button that let me split it into mono, after which I could delete the empty track. Looks like it is OK now.

Re-exported and Re-uploaded:

Kristin,
Once Lynette is feeling better and completes her last narrator chapter for v1 would you like me to have chapters 21-25 edited before you PL those? That way you are only listening to the narrator file once.
I had some extra time this week so in case you do want them I edited 21-25. I thought if Lynette needed to make changes she could tag them on at the end of her file and then I could replace them in the edited version.

I discovered a mistake in the color coding in Chapter 112, page 2, Julie's line is attributed to Maximilian:

"Oh, count." said Julie, "will you restore him to us cured of his melancholy?"

Unfortunately Xenablue didn't record the line. It should be inserted in her file around 1:07.
Thanks!

Hey, Linny and Kristin,

I guarantee you that I am not going to stiff you on my last narrator chapter. :) It would be safe to start PL/editing work on the earlier chapters.

It seems that my vocal chords will be back for my use in about 2 or 3 days, so I'll hit ch. 27 then.
Great!
