Re: [SOLO] The War That Will End War - dc

Sorry this is taking so long, but I hope to start working on the H G Wells project again in earnest in about two weeks time, and certainly before the end of September, all being well and no unexpected problems with the big project I'm doing cropping up, as I've recorded 31 out of 42 chapters at tod...

Re: Submitting Recordings to Audible (through ACX)

Audible and other platforms require a noise floor of at least -60dB and peak values of no more than -3db as well as an RMS requirement of -18 to -23dB, and these specs are hard to achieve even with good mics, pre-amps and recorders. A lot of loud audio such as music (especially pop, rock and rap) wi...

Re: Commercial Use of Librivox Recordings

It is exactly the mission and methods that LV adheres to (public domain, "choice of voice," free distribution, acceptance of recordings from all, even those who are not professional readers, etc.) that brought me to LV to volunteer my time. And keeps me here, reading and proof listening, now for 5 ...

Re: What if I Suck?

Well I think it's really practice. It could also be that you are reading too fast. I tend to sight read and immediately repeat when I mess it up. I then edit out the bad sections, leaving the acceptable ones. But it's easy to get into a mess and sometimes the editing is simple and smooth and at othe...

Re: [SOLO] The War That Will End War - dc

Thanks for letting me know. I'm doing Chapter 3 today - but there is no rush - I probably won't finish it for a day or so.

Peter,

I would like to be a DPL if you still need one.

Thanks,
SS
That would be wonderful, many thanks.

I've started to record chapter 1 and will probably finish soon (probably by tomorrow), although I'm not that happy so far with my reading, and may start again.

Re: [Solo] The War That Will End War - dc

Many thanks. I haven't a DPL in mind. If it would make it easier, then standard proofing would be OK. I always try and proof listen myself (and correct anything) before uploading - but the odd mistake can still sometimes get through.

I thought I might start recording and editing today.
