  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/drnikolasexperi00goog
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard


    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

    Magic Window:



    BC Admin

  • The reader will record the following at the beginning and end of each file:
    No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
    START of recording (Intro):
    • "Chapter [number] of Doctor Nicola’s Experiment. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Say:
      "Doctor Nicola’s Experiment, by Guy Boothby. [Chapter]"


    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "Chapter [number] of Doctor Nicola’s Experiment by Guy Boothby. This LibriVox recording is in the Public Domain."
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Only if applicable, say:
      "[Chapter title]"

    END of recording:
    • At the end of the section, say:
      "End of [Chapter]"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "End of Doctor Nicola’s Experiment, by Guy Boothby. "

    There should be about 5 seconds of silence at the end of the recording.
  • Example filename doctornicolasexperiment_##_boothby_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. doctornicolasexperiment_01_boothby_128kb.mp3)

    [b]Transfer of files (completed recordings)

    Please always post in this forum thread when you've sent a file. Also, post the length of the recording (file duration: mm:ss) together with the link.
    • Upload your file with the LibriVox Uploader: https://librivox.org/login/uploader
      Image
      (If you have trouble reading the image above, please message an admin)
    • You'll need to select the MC, which for this project is: chocoholic
    • When your upload is complete, you will receive a link - please post it in this thread.
    • If this doesn't work, or you have questions, please check our How To Send Your Recording wiki page.

I'll be happy to MC.

Would you please use this 1899 text on Archive? https://archive.org/details/drnikolasexperi00goog
The text linked in the first post is on Gutenberg Australia, and their texts are sometimes not PD in the United States. I see that the two texts are different, so there's a chance that some non-US-PD changes were made to the one on Gutenberg Australia (it's got a notice that the e-book version was published in 2014). The Australian one might be OK for us, but I'd hate for there to be any problem after you recorded the whole thing.

Don't forget the links! (I've added this one in case you don't still have the URL.)

I took the liberty of changing the text link in the first post.

34:27-34:295 delete repeat, "heaven..."

The volume is right on the border of being too low (<86dB). Amplification can raise it some (86-87dB) but clipping will prevent more amplification. In Audacity, the Effect/Compressor function can lower the spikes that are causing the clipping. A video link is below. Other recording software I assume has a similar feature to reduce recording spikes.

Chapter 1 for spot check

Thanks for the advice. I don't usually have this problem, I normally run through CHECKER but that is absolute and I should have seen that it was close to the bottom.

Apologies lost focus there awhile, its not as if I'm new to this!!....... I do keep all my URL until the book is finished.

4:375-4:40 delete repeat, "that is his.."

The links in the MW for both chapters 1 and 2 do not work. Not sure who should fix this.
