Okay, my first recording is up! :D

I have experience with most stuff that would be done with the 1-minute test, but I think some parts are a little distorted. Any feedback is appreciated. As far as my name and forum name, they are the same. I guess forum name would be more convenient for users looking up my other recordings in the future?
I'll do cheap or free voiceovers! PM me if you're interested!

Hi John,

Here are my standard PL notes: (PL definitions are here: viewtopic.php?p=318667#p318667)
-tech specs are all OK, though your volume is on the high end (we aim for about 89dB and you are at 91dB)
-the section ends after "Clarence S. Paine, of Lincoln, Neb." The box after that is an ad. I'll put a clarification note in the top post that we are not reading the ads.
-there are long pauses at 1:09-1:11 and 1:28-1:31, which should be edited down
-we need 5 seconds of silence at the end

As you asked for feedback, I might add that I agree the sound quality could maybe be a bit better (though it is certainly within what's acceptable for LV). Did you do any noise cleaning? Sometimes you get a bit of distortion when you "over clean" the file. If it's not that, post in Listeners and Editors Wanted and someone with more tech skills will help you out. I also noticed a few mouth noises (clicks), which I wouldn't comment on in a standard PL. People have different opinions on mouth noises... we are after all human beings, mouth noises happen, and some people are not bothered by them at all. I found the one at the very beginning of your file to be quite noticeable, though. I also find it helps to read through the material before recording, sometimes even out loud, so things come out smoother when I record them.

Your standard PL stuff is all fixable without re-recording. Just a matter of cutting and pasting!

Section 3 is PL OK! And sections 2 and 4 are all yours - thanks. :)

You can see your catalog page here: https://librivox.org/reader/11836
You can click on Reader section details to see your section tracking page.

Only one thing missing... when you post a section, please include the duration of the file (e.g., mm:ss) as we need this for cataloging.

I just uploaded a new version of Section 4 - I don't think it's been PL'd yet. Only thing I changed was the EQ. I hadn't realized how "boomy" sounding the original version was and it was quite fatiguing to my ears. I think I recorded too close to the mic.

Would you mind if I re-uploaded section 2 for the same reason? Again, no change other than EQ?

Sure, go ahead. In general, we don't like to re-upload after something has been PL'd because it makes double work for the PL'er, but it's a short section, you're still getting familiar with LV, and I'm PL'ing my own project here (so I'm not agreeing to extra work for someone else :) ).

Section 4 is PL OK!

Did you re-upload section 2? I don't see a new file in my folder.
