As an additional update: I also have my other claimed section (section 06) recorded, but due to time constraints I do not have it fully edited. I expect to have it completed within the next 2 to 3 weeks.
Audio setup:
Mic: Sennheiser e835 dynamic microphone
Interface: Focusrite Scarlett 2i2
Operating System: Windows 10
Software: Reaper v5.4 (Recording), Audacity 2.1.2 (Exporting)

PL NOTES:

SECTION 15 - The Wonderful Cloth

The volume is still just a tad high at 94.7dB and should be between 86-92dB.

Sorry about that, Anthony. But I think I've figured out to set the mic at the right dB level now.

Here's one that's a bit softer:

How do you check the dB level after you've recorded? (I'm still a newbie.) hmm: :hmm:

Hi Susan. I use a program called Checker, here is the wiki and download link;

alternately there is a program called mp3gain that you could try as well.

Susan, not only did you get this fixed, but you achieved the absolute apex of success here! We strive to have the volume at about 90dB and you hit that nail on the head! Great job! :clap:
