PL Notes for chapter 8

12:09 repeat of 'that is my duty to'
14:22 repeat of 'what can I say'


The bit rate should be 128 kbps. When you export the file change ‘quality’ to 128kbps.

The recording should use a constant bit rate. When you export the file change ‘bit rate mode’ to ‘constant’

The volume is 83dB which is too low. We aim for between 86-92 dB but ideally we would like it to be at 89 dB.
In Audacity you will also find the option to amplify under 'effects'.
How to amplify in Audacity: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_z607awyLw
If you like you can use the checker tool to verify volume and other settings.

There should be 5 seconds of silence at the end of the file it is currently shorter than this

Please could you carry out the edits then upload the file using the same file name. If you need any more help please just ask. Thanks

Section 9 is PL OK

Just for future recordings your file has a lot of spikes in it and at times goes very loud then very quiet. In order to correct this if you are using Audacity.

You will need to carry out compression and then you may need to amplify the whole file.

In order to amplify it is best to reduce the spikes in your file. To do this follow the video below which is created by Phil Chenevert and is easy to follow. Once you have carried out compression you will then be able to amplify the file to the correct dB.

I have carried this out on your file and it just needs the compression doing. It should still be at a suitable volume.

If you like, you can use the checker tool to verify volume and other settings https://cgjennings.ca/projects/checker/
Got it, thank you!
