hello Tim and thank you for your section. Your very first, as I recall and you did extremely well. I love your voice, it's soothing to listen to (despite the depressing text). And your pacing is agreeable to follow along with the naration. I hope you liked the recording process, so we'll hear plenty more of you soon.Tim811 wrote: ↑May 5th, 2021, 8:25 amI just uploaded my completed section and as per the instructions (I hope that I'm doing this correctly)... I'm providing a link to the file. Duration is short: 03:05.
Still...a few things need to be edited still. No worry, you don't have to re-record it all from scratch, we actually encourage editing, so the work doesn't have to get done twice. This is what you need to do:
> from 0:04-0:26: for short sections like these, I wanted to use the abbreviated intro disclaimer, which I mentioned (in green) in the very first post. Could you please delete all this and read the following: "Section 52 of The World War, read for LibriVox.org by [your name]. The World War, Part VIII. The fighting machines. Historical note."
> at 2:47: missed bit of the sentence (underlined part): "in the effort to meet the latest output of the enemy". The easiest way is to re-record that sentence in another audacity window (if you use that program), noise-clean and amplify like the original file, then highlight, copy and paste it into the correct slot in the masterfile.
> at the end: you only have 3 seconds of silence, could you please insert 2 more, to have the standard 5 seconds ?
Then simply reupload with the exact same filename, so the old file gets replaced by the new one.
Thanks and congrats on your first official recording.
