DrPGould wrote:PL notes for Section 17:

I would second everything that Lynne said earlier. However, for the most part, the audio for this file was excellent--there are just a few notes

at 00 there is a "boom" in the audio.

From 1:23-1:27, the audio sounds "choppy" as if slivers of unsound were spliced between slivers of audio.

AT 2:46; 6:03; 7:19, there are a number of really explosive plosives (all words with the "P" sound). You may wish to adjust your microphone to avoid these.

Other than that, very nicely read!

Many thanks,

Philip
Thank you for the help! Your videos on YouTube were also extremely helpful, so thanks for those as well.
I deleted the boom.
That weird choppiness seems to be a quirk within Audacity and I have to wait a few seconds at the beginning of my recording to avoid that weird clicking. Should be better now.
Got rid of those three plosives.

Thank you.
As a FYI, there is no need to delete plosives in future. We just need to know when we are susceptible and reposition the mc.

Hmmm :hmm: another reader had already claimed chapter 21. I'm sorry, but Librivox policy is to accept the first claim, which was Deon's.

I will gladly assign 25 to you.

Ian:

Two small things, both right at the end of Section 15....

At 28:06 and at the very end of the file there are two areas where the background noise is really loud.

The reading is otherwise nicely done.

Many thanks,

Philip
