[Trying out the new first post template!]

Some of these sections are short poems. There are only a few. I have thought about it and think it's best to use the standard intro/outro for these poems since they are part of a larger project.

And we are open for claims!

MaryAnn
Hi MaryAnn. May I claim ch 63, Spirit and Life? Pls let me know. tks. Joe Campo
I'm sorry Joe, Wayne claimed that section last night and I hadn't gotten the MW updated yet. At this point, we are fully subscribed. Please keep looking ... new projects are opening all the time ...

David, your file is a bit loud - I'm getting 94.9 dB - our target is 89 dB, with an acceptable range of 87-91 dB. If there is no other issue with your file, I can bring down the volume when I catalog. But you might want to look at your settings. When I zoomed in on your waveform in audacity I saw this:

See where the waveforms are flat at the top and bottom at the loud part? It seems to me that your recording volume is too high, causing the waveforms to be clipped as they go through your recording software. It might help this if you reduce the input level on your mic. I record with audacity and use the replay gain plug in to test and adjust my volumes as the final step before I upload recordings. You can find more info here: https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=ReplayGain

If all goes well, I'll be able to PL later today. Looking forward to hearing two new voices in the LibriVox family!

MaryAnn
Hi MaryAnn,

Thanks. I was able to bring it to 88.9 using replay, maybe you can do better? or is that okay? If so I can re-upload. If not, I appreciate you helping to fix the volume.

Thanks,
David

David,

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

Yes, please upload again with the corrected volume. Use the same filename. It will overwrite and replace the one in the uploader.

You are PL OK. If you are not already reading out loud to children, you need to. That story was hilarious! Ker-chunk!

Stacy,

43 and 44 are also PL OK. Also lovely readings! For such a know it all lizard, he really missed that one!

Thanks for contributing your storytelling skills to this project.

Kameleon,
Thank you for reading section 55. It's a wonderful counterpoint to the humorous tales. Your reading was very touching and is PL OK.

Thank you Wayne. I've noted your claim in the MW.
MaryAnn
MaryAnn,

First I have to make a confession. :( I did something that I have often been advised not to do, but I do anyway on occasion, and this was one. I went ahead and recorded my piece after requesting it, but before my claim being accepted so I could get it in right away as I knew I wouldn't be back on LV for a couple of days. Well, I was burned. After recording it, it was awful, and I didn't have time to get it 'rerecorded' until today. Sorry for the delay, but.....

So, here at last, is Section 63: https://librivox.org/uploads/maryannspiegel/emeraldstorybook_63_various_128kb.mp3

Time: 8:49
