Hi Carolin,

i'm so sorry for all the issues.

duration: 0:56

Good reading :thumbs:
There are several issues that need attention, however, as follows:

Needs “To a Petrel” at the beginning
0:37 to end == someone shouting in the background.
Closing silence is too long at 7 secs. Should be closer to 5.

The background voices might pass in a long prose piece, but in a short poem, they are very noticeable and distracting. Since this poem is so short, you might consider a new recording.

Just upload the new file under the same name the post the link and new file length here, and I'll check it again.

I thoroughly enjoyed your fine reading :D
Just one note that needs attention:
69 Resurgence
Closing silence is too long at nearly 10 secs. Should be closer to 5.
Thank you for your very kind words! :)
Ooooh, I don't know how I missed this - here is the reupload after chopping off the extra silence.

Do not include the title of the book.

My submission is #54:

Good reading, but a couple of technical issues

First, the volume is too high at 95.4 dB. Our target is just 89 dB with a range of 86-92 dB. You can use the Amplify function in Audacity choosing a value of -6.4 to bring it down to the proper level.

Second, there is a loud click right at the end of the recording that you should snip out. While you’re at it, there is a smaller click in the opening silence that you could clip, esp. since that silence is a little over 1 sec, and we like to have it not over 1 sec. Ordinarily I wouldn’t mention it, but it is easy to do since you need to edit the file anyway. Upload it again with the same file name, and post here so I can check it.
