The Hound of the Baskervilles, by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859 - 1930) .

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/the-hound-of-the-baskervilles-version-3-by-sir-arthur-conan-doyle/
The desolate, treacherous Devon moors. A bloodcurdling legend of a ghastly hound from hell, haunting the Baskerville family for generations. Such is the setting for the most horrific Sherlock Holmes story ever written, where the celebrated sleuth's brains are pitted against those of a most diabolically cunning and elusive villain. (Summary by LadyMaria)
  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'd 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/files/2852/2852-h/2852-h.htm
  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.


    Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard

    Please don't download 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:

  6. BEFORE recording:
    Please check the Recording Notes:
    http://librivox.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=6427#6430

    Set your recording software to:

    Channels: 1 (Mono)
    Bit Rate: 128 kbps
    Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz
  7. DURING recording:
    Please leave no more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of your recording!

    Make sure you add this to the beginning and end of your recording:
    Start of recording (Intro)
    • "Chapter [number] of The Hound of the Baskervilles. - 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]"
    • Say:
      "The Hound of the Baskervilles, by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. [Chapter]"

    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 The Hound of the Baskervilles, by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle."

    Please leave 5 seconds silence at the end of your recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes!

    Also, please remember to check this thread frequently for updates!
  8. AFTER recording:
    Need noise-cleaning?
    Listen to your file through headphones. If you can hear some constant background noise (hiss/buzz), you may want to clean it up a bit. The new (free) version 1.3.3. of Audacity (Mac/Win) has much improved noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.

    Save files as
    128 kbps MP3
    houndofthebaskervilles_##_doyle.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is your section number. (e.g. houndofthebaskervilles_01_doyle.mp3)

    ID3 V2 tags
    (To find out more about ID3 tags, go to our wiki: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/What_is_ID3)
    Add the following tags to your .mp3 file (how you do this depends on which software you use – if you are unsure about ID3 tags, send me a message). Please mind upper and lower case!

    Title: ## - [Section title]
    Artist: Arthur Conan Doyle
    Album: The Hound of the Baskervilles

    Please ignore tags for Genre and Track Number - these will be filled in automatically at the cataloguing stage.

    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:
      http://upload.librivox.org
      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: tg - TriciaG

    • If this doesn't work, or you have questions, please check our How To Send Your Recording wiki page.

Hello! I can offer myself as DPL for this if you like. I've been waiting for a reason to read Sherlock Holmes... since forever, and well, this is it!

With pleasure.
It seems to me the project is still waiting for its MC, though. Till then, I doubt sections may be properly assigned, as I cannot see the little "magic box".

Meanwhile, may I lay claims to chapters 1, 3, 7, 12 and 14.

Yep. We need to wait for an MC to pick this up. I hope he or she will come sooner than later! :)

I'll MC.

In the meantime, Miss Maria, since you've not recorded in quite a while, you may want to do a quick test recording to make sure your settings, volume, and so forth are still OK.

Here's a link to instructions: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/1-Minute_Test

I'll be back in a bit with the MW.

I see the MW is set up. Great!

I added the section numbers to the MW titles. During cataloging the MC can import the titles from that column directly into the ID tags, so that (1) the BC/DPL doesn't have to be too picky about the ID tags, and (2) the tags are all uniform. So since I'll probably end up importing them I added the section number so that MP3 players can sort the chapters correctly. :)

Assigned, SeanReads, enjoy your reading. I'm not sure whether I should ask you which name you'd like to be listed under - so far we'd be going with your screenname, I think.

I've also replaced the wikipedia summary with my own, should anyone care to check it.

Welcome to Librivox!
As it your first recording, we'd like to ask you to do a 1-minute test recording, just to check your settings, volume, etc are OK. Just follow the instructions in this link http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/1-Minute_Test It'll be quick and easy!

And to what name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the Librivox catalogue. We can also put in the link to your personal website/blog. Thank you! Have fun reading!

Maria -

Please put the file length (mm:ss) in the Notes field of the MW. I'll need that at cataloging time. :)

Thanks!

Hello Neil,
It's assigned. Enjoy your reading!

Chapters 7, 12 and 14 completed. May have slipped up there, I ticked the boxes beside my completed chapters, and cannot seem to undo it. It's slowly dawning on me that it might actually correspond to chapters approved by the prooflistener...
