Greetings,
Here is a redo of Section 66, "The Narrator", to include the two sections that ALANMAPSTONE kindly caught. I also made the silence between parts to be about 3".

I appreciate your extra effort. :thumbs: I'll have this ready soon.

Thank you for reading these chapters!
All technical specifications are just fine.

There is, however, some problem with the audio quality that makes parts of it barely understandable. Several of us have listened to this.
It sounds as if there may be some issue with your microphone or its settings.
Or, some of the distortion could be a result of some processing you are doing to the recording on the back end.

If you could tell us a little more about you microphone and set up and any adjustments you are making to the recording, we may be able to help you achieve a better result.

Don't make a new recording until we can give you some additional feedback. Then, maybe you can do a small sample for us to check out.

Don't be discouraged. It sometimes takes a little work to get things right at first.
We just want you to be the best you can be.
Hey,
Thank you for the feedback!
I checked it out, the problem seems to be my input port. I seem to have damaged it, hence the trouble.
If it's okay I would like to orphan my pieces, the repairs will take sometime.

All the best,

Uploaded section 64 (Dick's part)

https://librivox.org/uploads/linny/salvator_64_wilcox_128kb.mp3 06:17

Fragments separated by a CLAP and 2 seconds of silence.

At 4:03 in my file is a "he said" that should probably belong to the narrator.
“That’s just what I tell myself and the little woman,” //[4:03]he said//.
I left my recorded "he said" in the file, just in case.
Okay, this works.
I just need a voice credit: "Dick read by William Jones" would be fine. You can upload it as salvator_64_voicecredit_wilcox_128kb.mp3

Very, very nicely read for this part :D
Thanks so much.
~Larry

Thank you so much!!

I forgot to specify the intro for the narrator, so could you do it just as "Dick's Family by Ella Wheeler Wilcox"

Then there is just one little slip that I think would sound better if corrected. It is near the beginning, about the third line which is a long block and toward the end the paragraph:

"Directly opposite was a three-story and basement brick house, which had in its day been a semi-fashionable private residence. But as trade encroached upon the street, this building had degenerated to an apartment house."

I hear "seen," which sounds a bit odd.

You can put those to in one file as salvator_66_intro_wilcox_128kb

But, absolutely fabulous narration for this piece! :thumbs:

but you can't make him drink;
You can stuff a fool with knowledge
but you can't make him think.

Oh, my goodness! :oops: :oops:
Well, I don't always get my family's names right either.
I perfectly well know you name, and I apologize for the slip of the "tongue."
Duly corrected and with much gratitude for your contributions to this project, Alex, uh I mean Alan. :mrgreen:

BtW, I often get Harry, Terry , Jerry,, etc. Too many rhyming names. . . .

Dick's Family is PL OK! What a talented group of readers; I truly felt the emotion of the story. Thank you for your hard work, everyone.
