Hi Ares,

All yours! Please read the first post of this thread carefully.

Also, please tell me what name you would like to use for your catalog page. It can be your real name, forum name or a pseudonym ~ whatever you prefer!

Thanks, and have fun!

I'd like to use my true name, it's Ares Sancho. Thank you.
I also want to do more sections, i enjoyed this one, but i don't know if i'm doing it right.
Would you please listen to this recoding, at least a couple of minutes, and tell me if it is ok for me to take more sections. I'd really appreciate that.
Thanks a lot.

Thank you! Here is a link to your catalog page: https://librivox.org/reader/14773

I've listened to the entire file. You did great! :thumbs:

There are a couple of minor things that need to be fixed. The volume is just a tad higher than we prefer. If you could de-amplify it by about 2 DB, that would be great.

If you are using Audacity, and know how to amplify, just slide the slider into the negative range. If you need more help, please let me know!

You can check your technical settings, and the volume, yourself using this free tool that one of our volunteers made:
https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=Checker
https://cgjennings.ca/projects/checker/

Also, we need five seconds of silence at the end of the recording.

Let me know what else you would like to claim! :-)

Thank you so much. :D :D :D That response means a lot to me, i'm so up now for making much more recordings.
I'll fix what you commented. I use audacity, so i'll de-amplify 2 DB and fix the 5 seconds silence at the end. Then i'll try to upload the exported file with the same name. I suppose if do that, the old file will be overwritten.

May I claim section 9 please.

So many cheers :D :D :D :D

I fixed section 8 using the checker and decreasing 3 DB using Effect->Amplify on Audacity:

https://librivox.org/uploads/m8b1/encyclicals_08_benedictxv_128kb.mp3

I've done section 9, and checked it using the checker too:

https://librivox.org/uploads/m8b1/encyclicals_09_benedictxv_128kb.mp3

Thanks for everything. Waiting for feedback :D If i did it very wrong, i dont mind doing them again, in the meantime i'll try to claim more sections from other books. Maybe it's ok if i claim one more section here? or is it better if i leave sections here for other people, and try to claim parts of other different books?
