Hi Chris -

Saying Adrian spoke up for the next open 5 sections I will get you to Readers Found by taking the rest which I believe if I can count is 10.

If you have any questions about the volume I have requested Linny will vouch for me I hope... I am pretty quick to record especially poems as I like them!

Thank you, Lynda, signing you up.

Here is the pronunciation of the place-name "Toowoomba", which is the subject of one of the poems: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nmEkmrE_hvM

I hope you can view this, if not, let me know and I'll record a sound file for you.

Cheers,
Chris

Hi Chris -

Me again - here is a "down payment" on my recordings I just signed up for.... Talking to someone south of you has kept me up late again so I decided to do some recording while it was quiet!

Those were some mighty fine readings, Adrian. :thumbs: All PL-OK. And I like the accent on the final one ... that will come in handy for another poet whose work I have lined up on the slipway and will launch just as soon as one of my current projects completes.

Thanks,
Chris

Thank you, Charles, a wonderful reading! Only problem is, the checker is showing errors on the technical specifications.

The bitrate is variable, we need constant 128kbps.
"MP3 Format
~127 kbps (variable) 44,100 Hz Mono"


Also, the volume is too soft. You are aiming for 89dB
Volume
79.1 dB


Cheers,
Chris

Understood! Let me hit it again with the proper settings. I reset my PC recently and I think it also turned my settings back over. Thanks!
