Thank you so so much TJ! That helps like crazy. I think it's just like one word or something (don't quote me on it though) but it's really short. Thanks so much, you're a lifesaver!
No problem, David. Jasmin has offered 10 different versions of "I'm going" for you to choose from:

She even gives you a yawn for the "sleepily" part.
'I'm going,' said Harelip sleepily.
This is amazing!
Please tell Jasmin thank you for me... this was really sweet of her (and you) to help fill in for my mistake. :9:

I liked versions 2, 4 and 8 (I think that was it, hard to count :lol: ). I'll choose one of those during the editing stage.

Again thank you so so much, she was probably the best fit for William's voice and she did a fantastic job. (And ten different versions too! :D )

Oh and this goes without saying- but all ten versions were PL OK :lol:
Thanks, Rachel! We aim to please! :D I'll pass your message on to Jasmin. :9:

Edited chapter 19, ready for PL:

Wow, I didn't realize this project had started so long ago! :shock: I was like "wait, what are the chances that we would start it on April 1st at exactly 12:30pm?" and then I remembered... oh yeah :wink:

Anyway, chapter 19 clocks in at 10:28. I'll get it in the MW myself though. Sorry for not editing for so long! I forgot about it and then the Christmas holidays set in... Image

Just checking in to see what we've got to do here...

Looks like it's a lot of editing work. I'll probably pitch in a little bit more during the summer when I have more time to edit for long periods of time, but for now going a bit slower with this. Thank you!

Would you like some assistance with editing or PL of final chapters?

Hi linny!
Wow, I am so sorry... I haven't PLed anything in a long time! To be honest, I think I forgot about my duties here :oops: I will try to be more caught up on it, but yes, help would be wonderful, thank you for the offer! I think Bhavya is on the editing team as well, but I don't think she's been very active lately.
Thanks for the offer. :wink:

OK, I'll get started...

Chapter 4
4:03 – repeat – princess’

Overall the volume is a bit challenging. Some of the voices are hard to hear and others seem very loud.

Chapter 7
1:49 repeat – and branchings off

The overall volume is too low at 85dB. Instead of amplifying the entire file maybe just amplify the narrator. This chapter too has high / low volume inconsistencies.

Chapter 11
There is a 6 second ending silence. It's probably ok to leave it that long though. PL OK.

Chapters 17, 19, 20, and 29
PL OK

Chapter 31
4:15 – page turn
5:07 – door slam

Overall the volume is a bit challenging. Some of the voices are hard to hear and others seem very loud.

Chapter 32
PL OK

Depending on how much PLing comes in overnight I should be able to start editing tomorrow.

Thank you, linny.
I don't think you have access to the MW...so I'll just put these in for you.
Thanks again!

As a (very!) experienced volunteer you know how difficult it is to keep a relatively similar volume on DRs... I will, however, review the recordings you've noted and try to normalize/amplify a bit. :wink: Thank you for all your help, it is very much appreciated.

I generally put all the parts through mp3Gain or the Checker first to see what the volumes of each part is. Then I adjust them all to come in around 89dB and noise clean if necessary. Only then do I begin editing. Let me know if you need any help with the edits. If not, I'll start on the other chapters.
