Section 6: Very enjoyable listening.
Notes:When I ran the Checker it gave the following things that need to be fixed:
The bit rate should be 128kbps
Constant not Variable bit rate required.
Increase volume on recording by 6.
0:01 Please say "Section 6" instead of "Chapter 2 Hives Part 5" at this point
0:08 remove the words "M. Quinby" at this point
0:29 should be "Chapter 2 Hives Part 5"; I heard "Chapter 2 Part 5"
Shorten the silence at the end to 5 seconds; it is now more than a minute.
Thank you for your efforts. Rest assured you have til June 6 to reupload.
Christine

made changes.pls let me know if I need to rerecord..its short so no big deal. Didnt amplify as I wasnt sure how far ro go with the amplification...I know you said increase by six but that seemed alot to amplify - dont know how else to increase volume without doing it by changing microphone level during recording. :hmm:

The intro has been fixed but I am still getting a volume too low error with the Checker app. Also the silence a t the end is too long by alot. It should be 5 seconds exactly. Did you download the checker app? Does it say something different for you. You dont need to rerecord but we have to keep tweeking this to fit the Librivox specs. Thank you for your diligence.
Christine
P.S. I have a little trick that seems to work for me which is to upload from MP3 then amplify. I dont know why it works. Also, will you please check for any clipping in the recording and just reduce the volume in that section. Sorry if I am confusing more. Ask any questions and Ill try to be clearer.

Section 30 Just one note:
At the end should be "End of Section 30"; I heard "End of Section 14". Please remember to give new recording length after this edit.
Thanks!
Christine
