Hi,

I have uploaded Chapter 34. Here is the URL for review and feedback please.

Thank You.
Usha
Usha,
Lovely reading. PL OK.

You 'pop' a bit. You might consider adjusting your mic position. If you put your finger on the mic and then blow out you should not feel your breath on your mic. If you do, try adjusting the mic slightly to the side / up or down.

Also, make sure you leave the full 5 seconds of silence at the end. This is a little short but should be ok. At about 3.5 seconds you run the risk of being cut off during playback.

Thank you for you reading.

Also, I have uploaded Chapter 35 at https://librivox.org/uploads/alg1001/womanofyesterday_35_atwatermason_128kb.mp3 (Length : 16m:45s)

Please provide your feedback.

Thanks.
Usha
Usha,
Another lovely reading. You also have a little popping in this chapter. Nothing to do here but something to work on for future recordings.

The ending silence is too short. Please extend to ~5 seconds. You only have ~2.5 seconds now and run the risk of being cut off during playback.

Here is chapter 3 with adjusted volume. Checker passed it so I hope it's fine! Thanks!

Hi Linnet,

Thanks for the detailed feedback on Chap 34 and 35.

Do I need to re-record the whole chapters OR Do I need to just record the ending 5 seconds and re-submit the files?

Thanks once again for your time.

8:46-8:55 uncommonly long pause.
9:21 repeat – It was a very simple little incident, nothing which need affect a man unpleasantly in the least.
9:58 – repeat - Gregory galloped right along;
10:03 repeat - he was going to catch a train, I suppose,
10:11-10:14 uncommonly long pause.
10:28-10:33 uncommonly long pause and page turn.
11:09-11:15 uncommonly long pause and page turn.
12:07 repeat - and her heart doubly sick

Monika,
I believe you may have uploaded a partially edited file. Please confirm. I’m happy to continue PLing but I don’t want to if you simply uploaded the wrong file. The file length I have is a little over 21 minutes and you indicated the file was 17:39.

Just copy some of the ending silence you have and paste it until you reach 5 seconds. It's very rare that you would ever be asked to record a section over again. Most things can be solved with some editing. :)

Ruth,
Technically, yes, it passes the Checker and is PL OK. What happened during all of this is when you first amplified I believe you checked the box that 'allows clipping'. Because of that the overall voice quality does not seem to sound as nice to me. I'm just one set of ears though. I had your original file and amplified it. It's here: https://librivox.org/uploads/alg1001/womanofyesterday_03_atwatermason_128kb.mp3 Please take a quick listen comparing the two and let me know which version you would like to use in the catalog.

Hi, I listened to both and am a bit disappointed that the noise 'bumps' are still there even after I thought I had eliminated them! I am going to try to delete the blips or use noise reduction. I'm still learning how to use the program!
I will try one more time!
Thanks!

I'm going to use a previous recording to edit as I agree, the latest one is distorted. Still learning!

There is a learning curve with this hobby. If you are using Audacity, let me know if you have any questions along the way.

Thanks Stav. I have amplified Chapter 38 and uploaded it back at https://librivox.org/uploads/alg1001/womanofyesterday_38_atwatermason_128kb.mp3.
Also, are you able to update the catalog name for me please - not sure if you were able to receive my PM to you? Thanks.

Have a great evening!
Usha
I believe the original note was referring to the 'popping' from your breath on the mic. No need to record again but do please try adjusting your mic position slightly.

Ending silence needs to be extended to ~5 seconds.
