I see section 5 is still looking for a reader - may I put may name down for it? This will be my first reading for Librivox, and Calvin seems an auspicious place to start!

Thanks
Adam

It's a great place to start. :) Welcome on board!

Since this is your first recording, you may want to submit a shorter clip (a minute or two) first, so that we can make sure your technical aspects are all correct. It's easier to correct them before recording a section than after. ;)

How would you like to be credited in the catalog? There are places for a catalog name (some use a nickname, some their real name) and a web site, if you have one. CLICK HERE for an example of what I'm talking about.

I don't see any requests for section 16, so can I have it?

TriciaG, my pastor can help me with the Greek, so I won't have any more long gaps trying to figure out how to say stuff. I should have asked him sooner...

OK, sounds good. I don't think most sections have Greek, anyway. :)

I have just been lucky then. I think every section I've done has had some Greek in them. :-)

Hi Tricia,

It's probably simplest for you just to use my real name (Adam Oellermann). My web site is at http://www.oellermann.com if there's a place for that. I definitely take your point on the small-section idea - I will get a couple of minutes recorded after work tonight and you can let me know how to improve it!

I'm really looking forward to getting into this!

Thanks
Adam

Great! I've added your info to the catalog and look forward to hearing your test. :)

Hi Tricia,

I've uploaded a sample recording for you to consider - please let me know what I need to do to make it up to Librivox standard!

The sample is at:

Whoa! Is there a librivox standard??

I'm in trouble!
Please use PM for contacting me even when I have just posted something in the forum. I don't read forum posts, generally. Thx.

HA! The only "standard" is the tech specs, plus making sure the volume is high enough and background noise is low enough. :wink:

Adam - Tech specs are all correct, and the reading itself is great! It is a little low in volume, however.

What I did (and what you can do) to get it up to the right volume:

1) When done recording, select all, then use the Effects / Leveler feature set to Moderate. This levels out a little the quiet and loud parts. Then...

2) Select all, then use Effects / Normalize. I set it for -1.0 dB, which will put your loudest spike 1 dB from the maximum.

Once I did this, the volume was just about perfect. 8-)

Go forth and record!

Thanks Tricia! I'll aim to get it recorded this weekend and will experiment with the Leveler and Normalise effects.

Have a great weekend, all!
