A BIG thank you to both of you! :clap:
You're both really kind to help and it is very much appreciated.
I added the links to the audio in addition to the section times.

I put section 0 as PL OK, but I'll re-upload that along with the others at 89db when I can.

Please let me know what you think so far; I had all sorts of trouble with the audio track, so it took me forever to upload. Eventually I decided to make due with the sound inconsistencies etc. because life has to move on, but hopefully all those problems I had aren't too obvious too a first-time listener. :)

Talk to you later,
Kane

Hi Kane,
I'm listening to section 1 now. You made the right choice to upload and move forward. We can get stuck forever on trying to make it perfect to our own standards and unfortunately this keeps us from progressing. The edits that I have noticed are minimal and do not bother me as a listener. You are doing extremely well! Keep going. :D

Official PL notes to follow...

You are very kind. I'm a bit embarrassed. I thought I was working under the radar.
It's been a rainy day here and I decided to take the day off and spend my time at LV. I think I was able to get a few projects caught up today and really enjoyed myself in the process. :9:

Once PL notes are read, sections should be toggled to "See PL notes" or "PL ok".

PL notes for section 1:
Amplify 1-1.5
(when you upload revised files please toggle the file "ready for spot check")

Section 2:
Opening silence is almost 3 seconds. It should be less than 1.0.
Amplify 1-1.5
26:49 This is NOT standard PL and you don't have to change a thing. With that said, you might consider adding a bit more silence here. As a listener, the ending of the section was intense and then the note from the editor almost seemed an interruption. Another beat and I think I could have made the transition easier. Again, you are doing very well. Congratulations on your endeavor.

Section 3:
PL ok :thumbs:

In your initial post please change the instruction for your ending:
END of recording

At the end of the section, say:
"End of [Chapter]"
You have consistently said "End of Section [#]".


This project caught my attention since my husband is an EE from UCON. This book is not even close to what I anticipated. Good grief. I wish I could commit to even half as much self control. I guess that's why I'm not an inventor. :hmm: Although having to almost die twice in order to get to go to engineering school is a bit more than I'm willing to consider. :shock:

NOTE: When I record, I use MP3Gain to check my volume http://mp3gain.sourceforge.net/download.php. It's a very easy program. After I edit and before I noise clean I export from Audacity. I then drag and drop into MP3Gain and then >Analysis>Track Analysis. That tells me how much to amplify. I switch back to Audacity, amplify, noise clean, final playback and I'm ready for upload.

Hi, just a little update here.
I'm not working very quickly, but now that Cyropaedia is finished, I'll put the focus back on this project.
Still working on this one....

Note: On October 14th, our servers were reset to September 15th, 2016 because of a software failure. I have confirmed that no posts or uploads on this project were affected by the outage.

Reader checked in by PM on Jan 4, 2017 and indicated intention to complete the project. RL has kept him away from recording for a while.

I suppose the rest of my original PL notes don't really matter, however this one should be fixed.

It's been six months since the reader has been on the forums, so I am moving this to the "on-hold/abandoned" area behind the scenes. PM sent to DPL.

I was thinking of converting this to a group project, so I updated the MW with text links and some metadata. (The authors other than Tesla need to be entered into the system to put in them in the metadata.)

But then I got cold feet. But at least all this info is in the MW in case anyone else wants to adopt this. :wink:
