Ch 5
The volume is very low at 81.9 dB.Please amplify by about 8dB https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_z607awyLw You may find you are unable to amplify enough due to peaks, in which case, the compressor is a useful tool https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wJ3lOTDsN6c
You can check your specs yourself with our Checker program. It is free, safe and easy to use!

Ch 6 has similar volume issues, but is currently 83.6dB, so needs to be amplified by about 5dB

Thank you.
I’m pleased you didn’t re-record... as I am sure are you :lol:
It is rare we ask people to re-record. Most files can be salvaged. And this was a simple volume issue 8-) 8-)

I have assigned you 19 and 20.
I added you to the catalog of readers using your forum name. If you would prefer your real name, just let me know and I can change it. If you click on your name in the Magic Window, you will be taken to your personal catalog page. This is a good way to keep track of your commitments.
Please be sure to read the first post. All the information you need is there, but do ask if you have questions.

Absolutely! If it's a quick break... say to grab a drink or answer the phone...it's best to pause rather than stop the recording.
If you are leaving it overnight and want to actually stop, that's OK, but you might get a bit of a change in acoustics when you come back. Make sure you start at the end of the previous recording and just start again. You will find the second recording is in a separate track. That's fine. When you edit, make sure you cut all the extra silence, so it follows on smoothly. When you convert the file to MP3, it will magically merge the tracks into one file (it asks if that is OK...)

Ch 19

In a few places there are mic bumps and other extraneous noises. No need to do anything here, but just be aware of what you are doing 8-)

~12:14 repeat "George...George's instinct"
~13:35 Repeat "He felt sure... he felt sure it had been so"
~16:58 stumble "grou..ground him up"
~17:40 repeat "steep...steep crags two or three hundred feet high"
~20:40 stumble "Has he been bitten by the tsetse, do you think?”
~21:40 stumble "Then violent convulsions came on, and it expired."
~26:00 stumbles "They are not so cow..cowardly as the last-named creatures, and are in consequence more dangerous to encow...encounter.
~27:15 repeat "Rivers had now ...Rivers had now sufficient time"
~29:50 stumble "as those with which we of the northern regions"

This might look like a long list, but they are all easy edits... you just need to cut the bad phrases. Please re-upload with the same file name.
