Sorry -- I forgot! My section 8 recording is 09:47 minutes long.
hi minnie,

wow what a section.
i'm really impressed, your accent, your character interpretation, mesmerizing..and so fast!
and all in all, a funeral scenery... i had no trouble, was able to understand everything and even got the feels - thank you :-D

i have 2 pl notes, which i hope, are fast to solve:
- the average volume of your recording is 92,8 dB - we aim for 89 db with a range of +-3db, so this file is too high in volume and should be amplified for -3,8 db
- after doing so, there is a part in the recording, which is a little bit low in volume: minute 5-6, approximately.
i suggest marking this part, amplifying it with a value of +3 db.

that is to say, maybe some audacity tools like the compressor can be of help. what i know, files with varying volume are very easy to edit in one go with that. but i honestly never used it, so i have to hint to phils videos for that!

thank you for the recording, minnie - and please, don't get frustrated by this pl note.
it was a pleasure to listen to your recording an i needed some minutes to get back to my pl...

cheers,
