Re: Dramatic reading of the Iliad

Multiple narrators though? I have never seen a single project that had such a thing. It's gone out of fashion, perhaps, but does move things through more quickly! I rarely do DRs, but this method did make it easy for me to participate. https://librivox.org/scarecrow-of-oz-by-l-frank-baum/ (NOT volu...

Re: Need a good Android audiobook player.

I like Smart AudioBook Player. The free/basic version plays and pauses effectively ... but I bought the premium version for the ability to see how far through a book I am which for some reason I always really need to know. :D Plus no ads in that one. I'm not a big app buyer, have bought maybe 5 in m...

Re: New Project Template Generator

Did you start from an older project, chymocles? Or was it a link you had saved in your bookmarks or perhaps a private message from an MC?

Karen's site used to be the template generator, but we've updated it -- it'd be good to update the link you used so other people don't have the same problem :)

Re: Addition of LibriVox Logo to Linkedin Page

FWIW, there is a LibriVox group at LinkedIn ... there's no activity whatsoever, all posting and comms are here in the forum. But, if you are a past or currently active LibriVoxer and want to add it to your groups listing (appears under 'Interests'), then go for it. https://www.linkedin.com/groups/87...

Re: One reader with two voices desired.

No, the global gathering did happen :D Just, not super-globally (but we were a lot smaller then too ... )

Re: One reader with two voices desired.

David Barnes and I did a poem like this :D ... Prothalamion by Edmund Spenser . It was a lot of fun (and a lot shorter!) What worked for us (as far as I remember, because it was quite a while ago) was having worked together on other things (so we knew that our editing standards, pace, approach to po...

Re: Recording Motivation

Here are some of my favourites (though my sig's been the same For A Really Long Time, these are just general quotes that motivate me.) The oldest books are still only just out to those who have not read them. — Samuel Butler It is what you read when you don't have to, that determines what you will b...

Re: SOLO Beyond Good and Evil by Friedrich Nietzsche (trans. Helen Zimmern) - tg

Gosh, I didn't think I'd get a PL-OK on this project at all ... that's great!

With the long weekend I had a little bit of a cold, so no recording, but lots of time to sit down with chapter 6 which is ready in the window. :D

Re: No feedback for my audio test?

Welcome to the forum, SabSai! I like to use the Quick Links (top left of the screen) to check 'Your posts', which is a good way to show up new replies. (I get enough emails already without the forum going at it too :lol: ) Or, the link to your post and feedback are here: https://forum.librivox.org/v...

Re: Creating varying voices.

Ah, we have some community podcasts that might help too! Full list here: https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=Librivox_Community_Podcast ... I'd suggest trying 96 & 102 for starters. (Note to self, should really put little summaries in for all those blank ones sometime. Rainy day job.)

Re: Creating varying voices.

Sometimes I do celebrity imitations ... I'm so very bad at them that they sound quite original, and it makes it a little easier to be consistent over time. :lol: I've used pitch shift to tweak my own voice in doing rereads/pick-ups, but never for a full character. I'm not sure (at least for my voice...
