Re: New user from New Jersey

Welcome Steve, I'm Jessie and I'm new here two. If you're looking to record a good spot to start is by doing your 1 minute test to make sure your set up is ok (mine wasn't). If you're looking to help with proof listening, check out more on that here.

Looking forward to see you around!

Re: Books that aren't in the Public Domain (and why)

I live in Canada, so I know I could record something like 1984 if there was a Canadian hosted site similar to Librivox, but as Librivox is hosted in the states, it sadly can't be recorded yet. I'm not 100% on the PD rules for Canada, but it's just something I need to look into and research. I'm pret...

Re: Hello from Ontario, Canada

Thanks MultiMrWeb, I will do my minute test, and I'm pretty sure I have my settings all good, but my Mic is new, it's a Yeti Blue, and for whatever reason, unless I have the gain down to nothing, I top out. It might just be my voice, my hubby's doesn't top out, and it doesn't really matter how far I...

Re: Books that aren't in the Public Domain (and why)

Oh I can definitely appreciate it, but it's a series of books that really has my interest, and if it wasn't in public domain I would stop thinking about how awesome it would be to read some of it. It would be something that, if I were to start it, would be in a year or so, after I've got all the kin...

Re: Books that aren't in the Public Domain (and why)

This is a dream project that will probably not be started for a while as I've just signed up, but it would be an awesome group collaborative project. But is The Human Comedy (La Comedie Humaine) by Honore de Balzac ok? The French should be in public domain because it was all written in the 1800's, a...

Hello from Ontario, Canada

Hello everyone, My name is Jessie, and I'm 31, live in Ontario, Canada, and am excited to get started helping out here on Librivox. I've been a long time listener to the books. I've known about Librivox for a number of years, however just as I was going to sign up previously, my good mic broke and t...
