That's OK - we are all volunteers here and do what we can, not what we can't!

I think there may be some orphaned chapters (I've just sent out some PMs) so this project isn't as close to finishing as it probably looks.

Chapter 12:
18:13 - It's read: "I've always heard about you, Sidney." pause "If Dr. Wilson is here to see your mother...", but this incorrect both the way it's read and to the story. K is first speaking to Dr. Wilson and it should be read: “I've always heard that about YOU." and then to Sidney, "Sidney, if Dr. Wilson is here to see your mother..."

Also, there is over 7 seconds at the end, could you please trim it to five, since you'll be in the file anyway!

Interesting chapter, very nicely read! :thumbs:

Chapter 13:
Altogether a very nice reading, Rita. :clap: There are just a few things to correct or adjust:
From the beginning to :10 - there is a loud, buzzing background noise.
:16 - loud thump noise
:23 - Please add "Chapter 13" after Mary Roberts Rinehart as indicated in the first post for the disclaimer:
Say: "K, by Mary Roberts Rinehart. [Chapter]" The [Chapter] indicates to say what chapter you're reading.
1:42 - There is a little jump in the recording, maybe an edit that jumps a little on the phrase: It is you who have made possible...
14:24 - Same as the other, possible editing jump - It is read "Then, Sidney would say (jump) resolutely," and in text is "Sidney would say, rising resolutely" - you may have inadvertently cut out "rising" and the audio clicks at this place.

During the entirety of the piece is a lot of extraneous background noise, that really shows up on headphones; thumps, bumps and movement. There is also a noise that I have not idea what it is, but reminds me of someone cutting fabric with scissors throughout most the recording though it's lower in mix. You can check out how it sounds in the silence after the end of the disclaimer as it sounds louder in that silence. I would suggest tracking down what in your recording area is making that sound and correcting it for future recordings.

I'll be working on your other chapters soon.

Section 13:

I re-recorded it because it predated the purchase of my mic

If you've made a whole new recording then the chapter will need to be PL'd from start to finish, as it is s whole new recording, thanks Jennifer!

Thanks Rita and Jennifer!

(I just wanted to be sure you were aware that this wouldn't be just a spot check, but a whole new file! Glad to see you were already on top of it! :thumbs: )

Chapter 19:
Please trim beginning to no more than 1 second, there is about 1.5 now.
2:08 - Repeat of the sentence: And they cannot let such a thing go by. (the first time is at 2:01)
2:10 - Overly long pause - 4 seconds - right after "And they cannot let such a thing go by"
2:14 - Repeat of the beginning of the sentence: "However, Harriet hardened herself against." then your repeat with the same sentence and continue with the rest of it.
4:08 - Mistake: "All last night in the emergency warm. Ward."
5:51 - Mistake: "If you mean WaMax" you correct yourself after.
6:26 - Mistake" "She rose with sudden pash..." then you correct yourself.

Rita - I'm going to stop here at 6:26 , as it appears that this is an unedited file and let you go through it yourself and make the corrections that need to be made. I'll PL the entire thing once you've gone through it.

Chapter 28: PL OK! :clap: :clap:


You don't have to do anything on this, I just wanted to bring it to your attention - there were a few odd jumps and it might be editing jumps, you can hear it here:
1:51 - odd editing jump on "secret and romantic affection"
It's nothing major, but something to keep in mind for future recordings.
