Thank you!
Section 3 PL notes:
Beautiful reading! The only issue is that the volume of the file is 93 dB, which is too loud (87-91 dB is acceptable, and we aim for 89 dB). To adjust the volume in Audacity, select the whole recording. Click Effect > Amplify. In the Amplification box, enter the number -4 dB. Verify that the file is around 89 dB using Checker, then re-upload using the same filename. Post in this thread when the file is ready for spot PL. Thanks so much!

Section 15 PL notes:
Sounds beautiful! I only have one PL note: LibriVox requires 5 seconds of silence at the end of the recording, and your recording only has 4 seconds of silence. Please edit and re-upload using the same file name. Thanks so much.

Welcome to LibriVox! Yes, you are welcome to record those sections, but please complete the edits on your 1-Minute Test before you begin. Also, let us know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog. Thanks so much.

Hello and welcome to LibriVox! While I do appreciate your enthusiasm, you are not quite read to record for a project. We do ask that our new readers complete a one-minute preliminary test recording to make sure all of your technical settings meet our requirements and to identify any other recording issues before you start on projects. You can find instructions on how to do this in the Newbie Guide to Recording. I strongly suggest you read through it -- lots of good information to get you off to a good start. Once you have the "OK" on your 1-Minute Test recording, post back here to claim any available sections.
