Hi Paul - I've made the corrections, compression, and volume improvements suggested.
Upload link is : https://librivox.org/uploads/kikisaulite/arabiannightsvolume11_18_anonymous_128kb.mp3
Thanks for doing that. I've spot checked the error and the silence at the end and those are now both fine. You might need to be a bit gentler with the compression/make-up though - it's gone from being 3dB too quiet to 13dB too loud. For a quick fix, you can amplify by -13, but next time around you can soften the compression by using a Threshold that's closer to zero.

If you're using Audacity, it's useful to download the ReplayGain plugin (which you can find at https://forum.audacityteam.org/viewtopic.php?t=63067 ) - this is the standard we use to measure loudness against so will give you an exact measure of how much to amplify by.

I appreciate the feedback and in my next recording will work harder for better compression/volume.
Hopefully, after a couple of readings under your belt it'll all feel a bit more instinctive and a bit less like work. :)

Just a thought...we have a number of people that seem to be first-time volunteers at the moment and because of the lockdown we're all becoming a lot more familiar with meetings on Zoom. Would it be helpful to have a half-hour session where I share my screen and take people through mastering a file for Librivox in Audacity where you can ask any questions that I won't know the answers to?

I have completed recording and checking Section 44 - the 18th Night of the Month.
Time is 18:49. Please check it out and let me know if all is well. Thanks.

Skyrider - Yes, I would appreciate a Zoom meeting with all newbies as long as it's not in the pre-dawn hours of U.S. Eastern standard time!

Re: Section 18 of the Book of the Thousand Nights.
I made the recommended corrections and heard back from Paul in April that it was OK, yet I see in the Completed list this still says "See PL Notes", instead of "Complete". Is there something else I need to do? I'd like to do another section, but want to be sure the last two are OK. Thanks.

Hi Lisa...

No, it still needs a bit of work - see the post at the top of this page (specifically about loudness).

Cheers,
Paul

3rd Attempt!! I have uploaded the CORRECTED mp3 for the Tenth Day Part 2.
Thanks for your patience with the audio volume...I am learning and now to reopen the MP3 after exporting to examine.
The Checker app shows this to be 89.8 Db and 22.54 minutes.

Please let me know if there are other things I need to do - have viewed the videos also.
Thanks.

I would like to record "Section 47 - The 21st Day of the Month" if this is not taken.
Thank you.

Spot PL OK - third time's the dream, as they say. :)

I've also allocated you section 47 as requested. You've still got section 44 as well.

Cheers,
Paul

Wonderful! Glad it fits the bill.
I posted the completion of Section 44 May 14 with upload link. Just let me know if you are unable to see it.
I’ll begin Section 47.
Thanks.

Sorry - I don't know how I missed it first time. That's all good apart from a typo in the file name, but I understand that that's something the MC can easily fix at cataloguing time.

Section 44 PL OK

Also since I am new, I think I have to send a link to my one minute test maybe?

That's the link. Thanks
