This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page here:
After seeing projects with Pi and Phi I thought that I would like to start a project with prime numbers.
A list of them can be found at
Sections of 40 numbers at a time labeled with a four letter identification "number." ex. aaaa are posted on the wiki here
You can claim as many sections as you would like, and at the end of 1000 numbers they will be edited together into single files.
New to recording?
Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
Please check the Recording Notes:
Set your recording software to:
Bit Rate: 128 kbps
Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz
The Intro and Outro will be taken care of on my end, so for this project you need only read:
FIRST - Your name as (and if) you wish it to appear in the disclaimer section, optionally including location and/or personal URL. These will all be edited together into a list preceding the number sequence. If you claim multiple sections within a given thousand numbers, you need only record this on the first.
SECOND - The four-letter designation of your section. PLEASE be sure to read this before EVERY section, even if you claim and read more than one together.
THIRD - The 40 numbers in your section. Take it easy and read the numbers clearly, and leave a little breath-pause in between numbers. When you're finished, PLEASE double-check your reading for accuracy!
And that's it; as I said, I'll take care of the rest.
Save files as
128 kbps MP3
prime_####.mp3 , all lower-case, where #### is the four blue letters. (If combining multiple sections into one mp3, just name it after the first one; for example, a single file containing sections aaac through aaae should be named "prime_aaac.mp3")
ID3 V2 tags
Not important; I'll take care of them in the editing phase.
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 (when your upload is complete, you will receive a link - please post it in this thread):
(If you have trouble reading the image above, please message an admin)
You'll need to select the MC, which for this project is: ad - a.r.dobbs
- If this doesn't work, or you have questions, please check our How To Send Your Recording wiki page.
Make sure to have fun with your recordings but don't be silly. I know that it can seem a little boring recording random numbers (And as far as we know prime numbers are random). :o
