For Sections 6 and 7 the reading is great! :thumbs:

One difference with the new microphone is a background hamming, which wasn't there in the previous recording of section 5. It's still OK, I mean, this background hamming is not intrusive.

Section 6 is PL OK!

In Section 7, there is a stumble - repeat correction around 1:06,
and a phrase probably edited in later is not the same volume level, around 11:00

Section 3 is 20:02, and section 4 is 35:16.
These are very nicely read! I only noticed that both of them end with "End of chapter #" instead of "End of section #", in case that needs fixing. (in which case, section 3 could do with a few more seconds of silence in the end, because it ends a bit abruptly)

Other than that: :thumbs: :thumbs:

Thank you :D

Yes, it would be great if that could be fixed. It doesnt matter too much, but it is good to keep consistency :)

Here are the revised versions of 3 and 4. I also went back through Section 3 and got rid of a lot of breathiness before sentences.

These are now PL OK!

Don't worry too much about breathing noises; it's only natural for the readers to breathe :mrgreen:

it is so strange that the sound of breathing is something that a lot of readers hate in their own recording but that i have never ever heard a listener complain about :) so never fear, listeners are much more forgiving than readers are themselves!
