I could edit a couple more chapters, Twinkle, if that's okay with you. (Trying to do one or two at a time so I don't overcommit myself.)

PL note for Chapter 6:

@ 19:59, 20:05, & 20:15: I think the "hip, hip, hurrah" lines are too loud. If you look at them in Audacity, you can see they are clipping. Could you lower the volume on these so it matches the rest of the chapter? (And maybe even lower the Edgewood Minister's lines right before each one, too, a little.)

One easy way to do this and ensure that it will match the volume of the rest of the chapter is to use Audacity's compression tool. If you haven't used compression before, this is how I recommend people apply it:

(The trick to the compressor tool is to temporarily add some extra seconds of silence at the very beginning of the recording. Otherwise, the beginning of the recording will have a muted, fade-in effect -- not sure why this happens.)
  1. Click and drag to highlight the first 15 seconds of the chapter
  2. Hit Ctrl + C to copy this selection
  3. Now click in the area at very beginning of the track (to the left of all the waveforms)
  4. Hit Ctrl + V to paste those first 15 seconds
  5. Now hit the Silence audio selection button (or hit Ctrl + L if you have trouble finding it)
  6. Hit Ctrl + A to highlight the entire chapter
  7. Click Effect > Compressor...
  8. Next to Threshold, move the slider to about -16 dB
  9. Next to Noise Floor, move the slider to -40 dB
  10. Next to Ratio, move the slider to 2:1
  11. Next to Attack Time, move the slider to 0.10 secs
  12. Next to Release Time, move the slider to 1.0 secs
  13. Make sure the boxes next to Make-up gain for 0dB after compressing and Compress based on Peaks are NOT checked
  14. Click OK
  15. Now click and drag to highlight those first 15 seconds of silence
  16. Hit the Delete key

But overall I loved the chapter! :) I think the amount of space between lines was great, and all the other characters' volumes sounded good to me.

I'll edit this today and send it back to you! I'm sorry I couldn't get back earlier, my laptop was unfortunately under repair.

Hi, Bhavya!

That's okay! I hope your laptop is working well again!

I asked for some additional help with the editing since I hadn't heard from you in while. Chapter 6 is now assigned to JayKitty76, so please leave the Chapter 6 PL notes for her to edit.

I'll take Voice 2.

I assume I follow the cues of the others for the quick song?
