thank you Linda. I updated the MW and Larry will give you feedback as soon as he finds the time. Can you please always include the length of the section so I can update accordingly ?

Beautiful recording!

Just know the volume down a bit. It comes in at 92.9 dB. Our target is 89 dB with and acceptable range of 86-92 dB

Thanks! This was really nice to listen to.

Of course, sorry about that !

I have lowered the recording sound level a little and hope that helps with the overall volume.

Thank you,
Linda

Please let me know if the volume is better - I'm still learning Audacity!

Going to go watch the SpaceX launch now... ;-)

Oops! This is the better recording, prior one had a duplicate maxim.

recording is 8 mins 12 secs.

Thank you!

great, thanks Sonia! just checking on the sound level - which I guess Larry will clarify?

I'd like to request a couple of more sections, too please, #13 and 14.

thanks, enjoy this beautiful day!

ok I quickly checked the volume on Section 8 and it's a little bit over our accepted limit, if you could decrease it with -2 that would be perfect.

Here is a handy tool to check the volume and all the technical settings to your mp3 files: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Checker
I always run my finished files through it and it tells me the volume exactly. So here you would see it flagged with 92.9 dB, so you know you have to decrease with -2 or -3 to get close to the perfect average of about 89 dB.
I'd like to request a couple of more sections, too please, #13 and 14.
and they are assigned to you. I'm happy you like the project :)

Thank you and have a nice weekend

Sonia

of course you can, thank you so much for claiming :) I hope you like the short maxims, they are of sound value usually, sometimes a bit surprising however. All the details for correct intro/outro and filenaming are in the first post !

Enjoy
