Well, I had a look and listen and want to emphasize that I am being a little picky here. Again, overall, the volume is good, well within LV standards.

Having a quick listen showed me that the only 'problem' seems to come at the opening. (And maybe the closing. I don't know. I didn't look at such a short little segment.)

For Sec. 9, the first 35 seconds could be lifted by 4.6dB. That's what Replay Gain suggested. There is also a negligible section from 11:30 to 12:30 that could be lifted 1.2dB, but that seems unimportant.

For Section 10, the opening minute might be raised by 3.4dB and there are two sections (7:00 to 7:20 and 17:20 to 22:15) that might be raised by 1.5 and 1.2dB, respectively. But those last increases, again, seem negligible.

I think it is just the openings that drop. Hardly a thing to mention, perhaps. I'm a little embarrassed, in fact, for even mentioning it.

I'm marking the two sections PL OK! I meant to do so last night but got distracted. (At least that's my excuse!)

Thank you so much. I will take your advice on board and try to apply replay gain more discretely. ie not to the entire file.

I do so enjoy this occupation and would love to fine tune my efforts.

Thank you again for taking the time on my behalf.

Cheers

Jennifer

Hello there everyone! My apologies for being quiet--moving into a new house and the holidays sucked up a lot of my time. My section is recorded, I just need to edit it down--once I have, I'll post it ASAP. Hope everyone had a good holiday and new year!

Great - I'll need the length of your recording please.

Also, your filename is wrong - we only need one .mp3 at the end. :wink:

A few small problems. There is a noise and repeat at 14:36 or so and a glitch at 17:20. Also, I would suggest you shorten the pause that occurs at 16:15.

And please note that we need the length of the recording posted, too. It's a small thing, but it can actually be pretty important down the road.

Is this recording with the corrections?
