Was wondering about your nick - mine sometimes is KayCeBee (which are my initials) or KGB (if you include the hyphen between the last 2 of my names).

PL Comments:
4m19 "and I'd have saved them ten" - "them" is an extra word.

It looks like you've run the compressor or leveller function. This can impact the sound quality, so just be aware and maybe just leave it.

Please upload the new file with the same name.

Thank you
Kim

I'll upload that again.... Ya, the Kaysee are my initials (KCB) often I will use Kayseeb... but just Kaysee here. I will check that file.

Hi Kim, I recorded section 15 again. Had some technical difficulty. As you noted the file appeared to have some compression or leveller function. Sure enough audacity was automatically clipping between -0.5 and 0.5. Don't know why. had to get remove my audio interface - mbox and use different usb microphone (audio technica). Still don't know why audacity clips at .5 (auto amplify -6db) when using my MXL 990 microphone through my mbox 2. More info than you wanted, but if anyone knows why this happens, I'd certainly listen.

Let me know if there is anything needed on the new file. here it is.

It is 16:04.

I ran this through checker and it passed. Looked like it recorded without clipping as before. let me know.

Thanks

Kevin

Relistened and it sounds like eighth. Please make clearer as this is the point of the whole story.

PL OK :thumbs:
For your technical query - post in the Help wanted forum - people are very helpful around these parts.
Can I interest you in the last outstanding chapter of The Idiot at Home?

Such a funny story! Nicely read too.
PL comment - ending should be "end of chapter fourteen" you have two.

Thank you. Do you want another chapter?

Hi Kim

Thanks for your kind comments and sorry for my stupid mistake, which I've now fixed.

The new file is uploaded to

https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/idiotathome_14_bangs_128kb.mp3

The time remains 14:08

I'm a bit tight on time at the moment but if you'd like to let me know which chapters are still outstanding I'll take a look and see whether I can record one within a sensible time frame.

All the best

John
