The Works of Edgar Allan Poe, Raven Edition, Volume 5 by Edgar Allan Poe (1809 - 1849) .

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/the-works-of-edgar-allan-poe-raven-edition-volume-5-by-edgar-allan-poe/
This, the last of 5 volumes containing Poe's works, contains a collection of both prose and poetry. (Summary by TriciaG)
  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/ebooks/2151
  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 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!

  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)
    • "Section [number] of The Works of Edgar Allan Poe, Raven Edition, Volume 5. - 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:
      "[Story title, Part # if applicable] by Edgar Allan Poe."
      If your section/poem contains notes, please read them as well.
    End of recording
    • At the end of the section, say:
      "End of Section [number]"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • At the end of the book (section 23), say (in addition):
      "End of The Works of Edgar Allan Poe, Raven Edition, Volume 5, by Edgar Allan Poe . "
    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
    worksofpoevol5_##_poe.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is your section number. (e.g. worksofpoevol5_01_poe.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: ## - (just the section number is fine; I'll fill in the rest at cataloging)
    Artist: Edgar Allan Poe
    Album: The Works of Edgar Allan Poe, Raven Edition, Volume 5

    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:

      (If you have trouble reading the image above, please message an admin)
    • You'll need to select the MC, which for this project is: TriciaG

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

Shucks, missed the Raven!

But, I'd be happy to read the following:

2, 4, 11, 17, 22, 30

It will be another two days before I can start because I'm waiting on a new microphone that I think will improve the quality of my recordings.

I've got you in for those. I copy/pasted, so they should be right. ;)

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 personal web site or blog, if you have one. CLICK HERE for an example of what I'm talking about. I recommend using whatever name you say (if any) when you say, "recorded by [your name]" as that's how listeners will look for you.

Ah, yes, it is true that I am new.
This will be my first read, and I'm waiting on that new mike to do the sound test.

Larry Wilson

silverquill is my forum user name, but if I put a name in the recording it will be Larry Wilson.

So excited to do these. They will be done well, I assure you.

Great! Here's your catalog page. I have mine bookmarked and use it to keep track of what sections I've claimed. You can get to it by clicking on your name in the Magic Window (and opening it in a new tab/window, unless you want it to open within the MW). :)

...found a little mistake in the first post. I think it should be Raven Edition, Volume 5
same in the "End of recording"-section

Thank you! I copied and amended the post from the last volume and missed that part. I'll fix it.

10 is yours!

Hi, been quite a while since I recorded anything, and even that was precious little. So, I would be like a newbie. However, I'm a huge Poe fan! I'd be interested in recording numbers 27 and 37?

Thank you,
Victoria
