Hello!
I have uploaded chapter 3.
https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/leaveittodoris_03_hueston_128kb.mp3 (21:55.16)
Hello! Welcome to LV! I enjoyed your reading and have only a few comments:
Perhaps Lynnet can help us out with the first thing: The DC Bias was +6. I'm not sure exactly what that means, and the recording sounded nice, but my own numbers for that stat are quite a bit lower -- closer to "0". So, Lynnet, does this matter? What do you think?

Next, at 11:55 there is a stumble. Perhaps that's an edit that could be redone to be a little smoother?
Also, there are soft background noises throughout. This did not actually detract from listening and I do not suggest you try to fix them this time. I'm mentioning this so that you can have it mind for future recordings.

Over all, nice job!
DC bias came up in another project and I had to ask other admins, so I know this one :clap: :clap: :D

If it less than 100, don’t worry about it.
If it’s “bad”, it is several hundred and the human ear usually only hears it at 1000 or more (except unusually sensitive people or if you are looking for it).
I will be gone July 27-August 7. I will try to check in daily, but will not be able to PL or catalog projects until my return. Any emergencies, please contact another admin.

I will try to fix the stumble at 11:55. I actually noticed it when I edited my recording, and I had hoped I had fixed it satisfactorily. I'm still a newbie at editing! I'll give it another try. I guess I probably need to re-record a larger section and paste it in.
I'm having trouble with background noises. I'm finding I need to turn my mic level pretty high, and then it does tend to pick up a lot of background noises. I ran the noise reduction, but maybe next time I need to rerun the noise reduction for a second pass.

Let me know if I need to do anything about the DC Bias.
Thanks again for listening!

From what Lynnet wrote, no, you don't need to anything re the DC bias.
Re noise reduction, I usually do run a second pass. HOWEVER, I use a noise sample from the cleaned file. I do not use the same sample I did originally. You are off to a great start!
Peace be with you,

OK, here is my new uploaded file:

https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/leaveittodoris_03_hueston_128kb.mp3 (21:56.99)

I fixed the part where I had a stumble. Then I reran the noise reduction, but my volume ended up a little low, so I had to amplify it just a tad. I also checked in my notes from Adrian how to fix my DC Bias so I also got that to 0. I am learning so much!!!
I hope it's all set to go now!
Thanks again. :)
