I'd like to do section 10, but it there a pronunciation guide for Cheri, Zelie, and Candide?
Section 10 is yours. We have no pronunciation guide, our budget for this project was all spent on recruiting recording stars like you. And of course our gumbo catering. However, Cheri would normally be pronounced like Cher-eeee. with the 'cher' like the singer. Candide is usually Can-deed with the accent on the deed. (my made up pronunciation guides) Zelie is your choice. have fun with it just keep it consistent through out the story. Trust me, no one will care if you tell the story well. Keep asking questions.
Funny! Thank you.

Lydia.
Thanks for the helpful tip Phil. I think I have now been able to amplify this and here is the link below. For future reference, how would I reduce a spike?
EAsy peasy. You would use the compressor effect, it brings down those peaks and raises up the low areas a bit http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wJ3lOTDsN6c. I use it on most of my recordings.
So helpful - thank you!

Probably you have a spike that does not allow you to amplify more than a few dB. Reduce that spike and you will be able to amplify.

And here is section 08: https://librivox.org/uploads/philchenevert/favoritefairytales_03_vredenberg_128kb.mp3
Sounds beautiful. I'm not sure how I didn't notice this before, but the file only has 4 seconds of silence at the end, not 5. I always double check the starting and endings silences when I spot PL, and I only just now caught this. Do you think you could add an additional second of silence to the end? So sorry for the bother. :oops:

Hi there, Phil!
It's been a while since the last time I claimed a chapter. May I claim section 10 to complete this book?
Thanks!

You should put the duration on there as well it supposedly helps Phil out when managing the different sections
