Ok Section 5 should be done. It's not perfect....I highly underestimated this whole process! But I enjoyed myself and look forward to improving.

Oh I totally underestimated the whole process when I first started as well! But now I find I really enjoy every part! Edits were great, thank you!

There is just 2 very simple things that I still need you to correct and then you will be in tip-top shape!

Beginning- I'm still seeing about 1.5 seconds before you start speaking. Can you cut out a little to make it closer to 0.5 to 1 second?

Ending- I'm seeing 6 seconds of silence at the end. Can you cut it down to about 5?

I'm very much enjoying having something a little different to learn and do...Third times a charm?

Sending In Chapter 3 What Happened When Tommy Became a Mink - run time 20:40. I tried the checker and I think my volume may be a little low, but I would love advice on how to increase it. I tried to Amplify and it won't let me go any further. Is there a way to decrease the spikes so the overall volume can be increased? Thanks!!

Well, you are right, this is a tad below our lower limit.
Try this: Highlight the entire file. From the Effect menu select Limiter. I think the default is -3.0 dB. Then you should be able to use the Amplify feature to bring it up.

Also, please adjust the silence. At the beginning - less than one second (This is just a tad over). At the end we need ~ five seconds, and you have ~ three.
But, very nice reading. :)

Let me know how this works.
Just upload your new file under the same file name, and post the link here again with the new file length.
