Hey, so a little bit awkward.
My recording is done, I just need to edit, but I am a way from home until monday, I took the audacity project with me on my laptop (I usually work on a desktop), but APPARENTLY I didn't bring the project data folder. I didn't know that was a thing, but that's what Audacity is telling me when I try to open the project.

It will be done, but it might be a few days late.
I'm going to kick it into gear as soon as I get home.


Is that okay?

Yes, that's okay. Thanks for letting me know!

(If you're going to transport files, I suggest exporting them as FLAC. It's lossless, so you don't lose quality when repeatedly exporting and re-importing, and you only need the one file to open it in Audacity or any other program.) :)

That is good to know.
I wanted to keep it in an audacity project because I had it set up in a special way with the tracks.

I heard some little issues so I cleaned them up and re-uploaded it. Hope it's not a problem.

Nicely read - thank you!

0:21 - please say "The Assassins' Club" after "Chapter 14". :)

Thanks! Here are the PL notes.

0:10 - missing the "this is a LV recording" spiel. (The intro wording you used was a little different - did you just skip the whole intro part up to and including the LV disclaimer?)

3:17-3:25 - long pause

14:00-14:06 - Two tracks are playing at the same time. (Did you accidentally shift some audio? That would account for the pause above and the overlap here.)

39:18-39:38 - Ah, I found the audio missing from the start of the recording! "Chapter 36 of The Master of Mysteries. This is a LV recording...." - this needs to go to the front. :)

0:05, 39:13, 39:18: should be chapter 21, not 36. (File name will need changing, too.)

I thought I put that at the start sorry! Yeah I must have shifted some audio around by accident.

No Idea why I thought it was 36, sorry about that!

I'll fix them asap

Okay, I think I fixed it all.
I did do the intro and the outro (probably wrong still for some reason) before, but I must have deleted it or something.

Anyway here it is fixed.
