I joined recently and I have some spare time to do a PL or two if you need someone to pick up the slack until the regular DPL comes back?
Ill start with Section 9 until otherwise instructed
Just tell me if I am stepping on any toes. That is really not my intention
EDIT: On second thought. There's an issue with the file for Chapter 9 (It's seems to be missing or the link is broken) so I will skip to Chapter 11. There seems to be a prior PL claim on Chapter 8 (In the Listeners wanted thread)
However, I will need coffee first. It looks like a beast.
EDIT Again: PL DONE for Section 11 (Chapter XXXI)
Firstly, I have been reading through the thread and I have to agree with Susan. You have one of the best reading voices I have heard on LV. At the start I thought that I would find it hard to concentrate on the contents but I am now well and truly hooked.
My notes on the recording as follows:
46:13 A bit of a stutter that breaks the flow of the sentence.at "... and fading off into the pale brown tint..."
53:46 Repeat of "..., while in every box, and under every hoard..." Also, you seem to have substituted the word hoard for the word board. It does not make much of a difference as far as I can tell and I would not have picked it up if it hadn't been for the repeat. Its your call if you want to fix it.
1:04:15 Repeat of "... seen so many rare and beautiful living things" The first one of the two is missing the word living so I assume it was re-recorded to fix that and the the first one was just missed during editing.
Then on a technical point, the Checker utility errored on the length of the recording because it is longer than an hour, but I seem to have read somewhere that up to 70minutes is fine so that it can fit on a regulation CD. I will double check and get back to you.
Also the Volume is quite at the high end of the spectrum at 94.2 dB. It might be worth it to bring this down just a little since some of the s's end up being a little jarring at the volume I was using.
Great job. I will definitely be keeping an eye out for any more of your recordings. For the moment I will help with the PL'ing of this project if you want me to. Just let me know.
