Hello Don,

Regarding section 11.

I really was quite pleased with your recording as it was before, and I hope you didn't misunderstand me.

The editing and noisecleaning you've done has resultet in a recording with a very low volume.

I've taken the liberty, and hope that's all right, of amplifying your file and then doing another light noisecleaning. You can hear the result here:

http://upload.librivox.org/share/uploads/ni/themysteriousisland_11_verne.mp3

I hope I didn't tell you to edit out your breathing, I personally like people to breathe most of the time :P And it makes a recording sound real somehow.

What I did tell want you to watch out for, and I really meant just in the future, was the sound of, what I think is, rustling of paper. Listen for instance between 00:30 and 00:45 to get an idea of what I mean.


That you couldn't upload your file with the same name, must have been a fluke. The servers automatically rename the previous
file when you upload a new one, because it is so important with consistent naming. As you can see I had no problems uploading a file with your previously used filename...

I hope I neither confuse or discourage you. I really do like your reading and just adding 5 seconds of silence would have made it PL-ok as it was.

Tell me if the results of my fiddling with your file (again I apologize for doing this without asking) are OK. You know your own voice best. If you aren't happy with it, you'll have to have another go yourself at getting the volume and everything ok at the same time.

My very best
Anne Kathrine

That's great, Don. Thank you very much! We actually do want the file name to be without the "the." So it should be "mysteriousisland_11_verne.mp3. You were correct.

Thanks for the encouragement. I will always remember the 5 second rule...
Now I will prepare for Volume 1, Chapter 12.

Nerdanel,

If Don is allrigt with my editing, the file I have uploaded is the one you have to use. Don's file is not loud enough by a long shot.

It might be an idea if you on the first page edited your post to include an exsample of a correctly named file. As well as an example of the correct MP3-tags...

Thank you, John! Did you already post section 14 or did I miss it?

Hey Nerdanel,
Negative on the Section 14. I started it. Made edits, then started and completed 15 and just did that. I know it's preferred (at least I assume so) to upload in sequence, but yeah. no 14 yet.

I am really liking this book (along with most of verne's work).

John,

No problem at all. I just wanted to make sure I hadn't missed it. You can submit them in whatever order you want :). I'm glad you're enjoying the book. It's one of my favourites. :)

Re-inventing the wheel is not a waste of time if, when you get done, you understand why it is round.
