Here is section 1 The Chimp

https://librivox.org/uploads/leni/livinganimals1_01_cornish_128kb.mp3

Time is 8:48

Thank you!!
Nice reading! I have a few notes for you, which I hope won’t give you too much trouble. :)

*Volume- It is currently high at 95.5 dB. Target is ~89 dB with 86-92 being acceptable. So amplifying -6 should be about right.

*End silence is 1.4 sec while we need ~5 seconds.

*Other edits that could possibly be OK as is if they cause too much trouble:
~2:50 a word that seems to have been cropped, ‘digits’
~5:02 slight stumble, "than ha... they have yet obtained"

Thanks!

Here is Section 49 Giraffe and Okapi

https://librivox.org/uploads/leni/livinganimals1_49_cornish_128kb.mp3

Time is 21:23

Thank you!! Have a great day.
PL notes:
*This also has a slightly higher volume than our range, being at 92.8 dB. Lower about 3, and it should be good. Although there are spots that your voice fades a little. :hmm: A mic setting??

*Silences at both ends need adjustment - beginning should have a tad more but not more than .5-1 second total. End should be increased to ~5 seconds.

*Also I noticed quite a few slight stumbles throughout. Have you edited the file and those stumbles were minor enough that you decided to leave them, or was that a complete miss? I'll wait to finish PLing this until you let me know. And if you have questions, feel free to ask here or PM me.

(Another thing I noticed but have no idea how to change is the background hum while you're speaking but not otherwise. I'm not familiar enough with the recording and editing processes to know what causes it, but perhaps you'll think of something to do differently on future files. About me, you don't have to worry about it here unless you find an easy quick fix.)

Thanks,
~Rosebud

I've been cleared to record, and so I recorded! Here's my section 32.


32 - https://librivox.org/uploads/leni/livinganimals1_32_cornish_128kb.mp3

Time: 15:13

Can I claim sections 27 (Weasels) & 34 (Bats) for my next contributions?
First of all, I'll answer the questions you asked in your signature. :) Tempo seems great to me, as well as enunciation. The stumbles and pause I'll include in my notes.

~13:56-59 stumble with correction following ~14:12-15 stumble with correction following ~14:55 - 15:01 long pause before outro

These should be easy fixes, as you'll only need to snip at each spot. I'd suggest no more than 3 seconds between the end of the chapter and the outro, but you can use your judgement as to what feels right.

Thank you,
~Rosebud

Here's the corrected file, my brain apparently decided I was done editing at 12:30 before uploading it the first time >< sorry about that!

Constructive criticism is always welcome. Do I need to slow down? How's my enunciation? Did I stumble, or pause too long? Please let me know!

Hello - I would like to offer to read Chapter 26 "Raccoons" on this project. If it goes well, I'd be happy to request a few more chapters.

thanks
