Chapter 5 PL OK

Just a couple of things that don't need fixing here, but watch for in future:
File name -- it's important to follow the format laid out in the first post. castleoftwilight_05_potter -- I can fix it, so don't worry.

There were a few mispronunciations, but we only ask for corrections if they change the meaning or are unintelligible. One in particular to be careful of: tapestried. You said "tape-stried". It should be "tap-er-streed" (covered in tapestry).

Overall, excellent first recording. Clear, well-paced and good expression. Well done!

Chapter 11

A technical issue that needs to be corrected: the bit rate needs to be 128kbs constant

Nothing to fix, but something to bear in mind: It seemed as if you were rushing a bit, and forgetting to breathe. The volume dropped a little at the end of sentences, particularly longer ones. With audio recordings, slower is better. Unfortunately we can't always rely on punctuation in the original text... some authors hadn't heard of commas, semi-colons or run-on sentences :lol: so we have to add them and take a breath. The compressor effect is useful for evening out the volume where it is irregular
