Hello!

I'd love to grab Section 68 - Undiné - if it's indeed still available!

Thanks!

Julian,
Section 84 sounds great but has a high-pitched buzzing in the background that can be removed in Audacity. I removed it from your file myself easily using the following settings: Noise reduction dB 8, Sensitivity 6.00, Frequency smoothing 3, Noise Reduce (not Residue). Remember to select a few seconds of the buzzing and get the noise profile before reducing the noise on the entire file. I got the profile of the buzzing from 0:59-01:01 and the noise reduction seemed to work well.

Section 27 has some buzzing, although it is not as bad as the buzzing in Section 84. There is also a misreading at 03:27. The line reads "raising the prisoned soul from gloom," and I heard "raising the poisoned soul from gloom."
