Hi Aubrey -

This was an EXCELLENT reading! There are just two small issues to be fixed! PLEASE read this through before doing the corrections....

First, the "_128kb" after "burt" is missing from the file name. You can see the complete file name needed below the text to read which is below the Magic Window (MW). You can do this when you have completed the volume increase which is next!

Your volume is a bit low. It comes in at 85.2 dB where the range is (86–92 dB), with 89 dB being what we aim for. Not sure if you know how to increase your volume or not - it is really simple! Just highlight your recording in Audacity, then go to Effect - Amplify and in this case enter 3.8 (which is 89 - 85.2) in the open field.

EDIT: I just saw that your recording cannot be increased by 3.8 dB! So before you do the Amplify we need to make some space for the volume to increase. This also is simple! Again, with the recording highlighted, go to Effect - Noise Reduction. Select the button at the top and it will go assess your recording. Now go back to Effect - Noise Reduction and enter in each of the open fields, 3, 6.00, 3 and make sure Reduce is selected. Press OK. NOW go back to the "Volume is a bit low and do that part....

Now, export your recording using the full file name which includes the _128kb and upload and post the link here for me to check!

Has someone given you the Checker which is the tool to check your recordings for volume and other technical specs? If not, please let me know and I will post the link for you.

Please let me know if you have any questions!

Lynda

Press OK.

That should Noise Reduce your recording. If you need to repeat just do the 2nd pass again. You can play with the first 3 number as the number of decibels to noise reduce.

I would have a back up though! Too much Noise Reduction can lead to changing your voice :)

Here's the new-and-improved Section 18! :D
Note: This is a re-recording of it, because the piano was louder than the noisecleaning capability of Audacity. :shock:
