  • This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-tale-of-jolly-robin-by-arthur-scott-bailey/


    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/28293
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

Still looking for my first robin of spring, although the cardinals are out, but it is a good time to add another Arthur Scott Bailey story to the LibriVox catalog.

Cheers!

Delighted to have you MC again, Amy. :9:
If this goes well, there are quite a few on the Bailey collection ready to go.

Ready for a DPL and readers.

Thank you for our first completed section, Rosa. Perfectly read.
Just one note, however. The background hum is quite noticeable and can easily be eliminated. If you are using Audacity, just select Noise Reduction from the Effects menu. Select the final five seconds as your noise sample, then select the entire recording and set the level to about 12 dB and run it. If you need more help, see point 8 in the initial post in this thread for a link to more help in noise reduction.

Just post a note here when this is done.
Let me know if you have any questions.

Thankyou! I was doing the noise cleaning a different way before. This one works much better!
