Hello there!

Here is section 5 https://librivox.org/uploads/kikisaulite/arabiannights04_05_anonymous_128kb.mp3 22:37

I just realized that I sent section 4 to a different MC :oops:, but you should have both now. Again any feedback is openly welcome :help:

Thank you and stay safe.

Please make sure you post the link in the forum even if it's in another MC's folder. We can always move it but if you don't post it we won't know it's in the system. :wink:

Overall, you did a great job. :D

All of the corrections are minor but please let me know if you have questions about them or how to make the changes.

Section 4
The volume is too low at 82.4dB. We aim for 89dB with an allowable range of 86-92dB. Please amplify by 7dB (at least by 4dB)
Please trim opening silence to 0.5-1.0 seconds. It’s currently ~ 15 seconds.
Long pause at ~5:56. Please shorten. Anything longer than 1.5-3 sections during the recording is generally too long.
Long pause at ~13:14. Please shorten.

Please trim ending silence to 5 seconds.


Section 5
Please trim opening silence to 0.5-1.0 seconds. It’s currently ~ 21 seconds.
Please trim ending silence to 5 seconds.

Hi, just uploaded my 1-Minute mic test (viewtopic.php?f=21&t=82503). Would love to read section 39 if it's still open!

Absolutely. Please wait until you get your OK on the sound check. Let me know if you have any questions along the way. :D

Thank you for the feedback about the pausing. I was wondering what I needed to make it flow better. I'll keep it in mind for next time! :D

Section 4 is spot check PL OK.

Section 5 opening silence is still too long at ~5 seconds. Please trim to 0.5-1 second.

On a side note and nothing requiring correction please keep an eye on your volume for future recordings. These are both at the minimum allowable volume. Looking at your wave pattern you might consider compression followed by amplification. Again, these pass so no volume change needed. If you are interested in the process here is a video from our wiki library. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-fKYYj6HMZU

I don't know why deleting some silence from the front would impact the volume but this track is now below the limits. It's 85.6dB. We aim for 89dB and an acceptable range of 86-92dB.

Kurt,
This was a pleasant surprise. Thank you for the section!

The overall volume is too low at 81.9dB. We aim for 89dB with an allowable range of 86-92dB. If you increase the volume on the first ~3.5 minutes and after ~13:00 that would likely bring you into range.
Please noise clean the section after you finish adjusting the volume.
16:25 Stumble – and it was in/it was agreed
18:54 stumble – on receipt of this in/ungracious
Please trim ending silence to ~5 seconds. Currently at 6.5 seconds which is a little too long.

Revised file should be posted with the same file name.

Please let me know if you have any questions about my notes or how to make the changes.
