You don't need permission in advance for this project. And if we end up with multiple copies of the same monologue, who cares?

Highly recommend you do the One Minute Test so we can ensure your equipment is working properly before you submit something for real.

Thanks, Todd

I'm not sure the additional edits help as much as you would want. The recording and any edits you made to Out Damned Spot ended up sounding better. What did you do differently for that reading than for this one? You might try a new recording of this one with the same setup.

Can you please upload with the same name as your original? - that is what is now linked in the MW, and when you upload a new version, it replaces the old file.

Thanks, Todd
I can try again, and this time maybe I'll be less enthusiastic with applying the noise reduction edit :)
I'll be sure to use the same file name when uploading.
THANKS again.

Again - feedback only since you asked.

Better, more like your Lady MacBeth recording.

However, you had major volume changes in the recording, and all of it was very quiet. I tried to amplify it enough to listen and had to boost some parts by 12 dB and other parts even by 30 dB. I uploaded a version (what is now linked to the MW) with the volume boosted varying amounts throughout to give a more consistent output level. You can listen to that and see if it suits you. If you like that version, we could use that.

However, I suggest that you try editing to adjust the volumes on your copy, as this will be a necessary skill to learn for working with all your recordings. Using Audacity? In that case you mark a section of the recording, and then use the "Effect/Amplify" command from the drop-down menu. Peaks on your recording should reach or slightly exceed the 0.5 level on the scale, with maybe a few portions that go higher where you really want one section louder than the rest.

Thanks, Todd

Nice.

I did amplify it by a uniform 16 dB to be audible on my computer, but other than that clear and natural sounding.

Thank you, Todd
