PL notes for Chapter 8:

@ 20:43 - There needs to be five seconds of silence at the end of the recording: "End of Chapter 8. [Insert silence here.]"

@ 0:31-0:42 - Volume suddenly becomes very quiet during the next couple sentences: "Bonnie Prince Fetlar: The Story of a Pony ... Chapter 8: A Great Secret."

The volume is just a little too loud at 93.1 dB. Could you de-amplify a couple decibels to get it within the 86-92 dB range?

OPTIONAL: Also, some areas of your recording were a little quiet and difficult to hear, while other areas were quite loud. You may consider using Audacity's compression tool on your recording. (If you have not yet downloaded Audacity, here's the link -- it's a free, easy-to-use audio editor.) To compress your recording:

(The trick to the compressor tool is to temporarily add some extra seconds of silence at the very beginning of the recording. Otherwise, the beginning of the recording will have a muted, fade-in effect -- not sure why this happens.)
  1. Click and drag to highlight the first 15 seconds of your recording
  2. Hit Ctrl + C to copy this selection
  3. Now click in the area at very beginning of the track (to the left of all the waveforms)
  4. Hit Ctrl + V to paste those first 15 seconds
  5. Now hit the Silence audio selection button (or hit Ctrl + L if you have trouble finding it)
  6. Hit Ctrl + A to highlight your entire recording
  7. Click Effect > Compressor...
  8. Next to Threshold, move the slider to about -14 dB
  9. Next to Noise Floor, move the slider to -40 dB
  10. Next to Ratio, move the slider to 8:1
  11. Next to Attack Time, move the slider to 0.10 secs
  12. Next to Release Time, move the slider to 1.0 secs
  13. Make sure the boxes next to Make-up gain for 0dB after compressing and Compress based on Peaks are NOT checked
  14. Click OK
  15. Now click and drag to highlight those first 15 seconds of silence
  16. Hit the Delete key
Overall, great reading! :clap:

PL notes for Chapter 23:

@ 18:11 Missing outro - Please add the words "End of Chapter 23" followed by five seconds of silence to the end of your recording.

Also, don't forget to add the letters "kb" to the end of your file name, so that it reads as follows: bonnieprincefetlar_23_saunders_128kb.mp3

Great job! Haha -- that toad! :lol: Made me laugh!

PL note for Chapter 30:

Volume is just a little too low at 85.2 dB. Could you amplify it a couple decibels to get it within the 86-92 dB range?

Great reading!
