Just be glad that he is about as far away as you can get on this planet....
yes I know, the perks of LibriVox LOL but don't forget, when I act for a role in here, I get into character and really feel the other people present...so I will suffer with those vultures around me during the play :help:

thanks Scott, now it’s PL ok. :)

As for doing edits, I always record all my corrections onto a completely new Audacity file, then noise-clean and amplify if needs be, and then I copy/paste the bits into the right spots in my masterfile. I found this to be the easiest way.

Kitty, I've got you now. Try not to squirm too much.
:twisted:
Ah Mrs Gaylustre (I wouldn’t know about “honourable”… :roll: ).

Linda, as I thought, you have an absolute knack for the female villain :thumbs: you and Chris (a.k.a. bush-runner Jo) definitely are two peas of the same pod.

Todd, is there any librivoxy way we can defend ourselves against these siblings from hell ? :shock:

I loved the entire performance. And I’m glad I heard it before I recorded my lines, I have some more ideas how to react now. (I will not make it easy on you either, at least not in the first Act, where I still have a semblance of an upper hand :mrgreen: )

Already your first speech is dripping with disdain and jealousy alike. And so far in Act 1 you play the hypocritical-humbleness-card but already in the final couple of lines, when you see that you have Kitty in your grasp, you start to morph into a more evil character. Oh my, what have I let myself into… I can’t wait to see what you will dish out in Act 2. 8-)

Act 1, for now, is totally PL ok

I was wondering about this cough right at the beginning, :lol: but then I found it in the text ! It is rather a bit more than a “little cough” though LOL but a nice effect.

You have to make corrections??? I don't believe that for a second! :lol:

oh, where did you hear the myth of the infallible Kitty ? All lies, I assure you. :lol:

You would be surprised to hear my initial unedited recording. :shock: Just like Todd, I usually end up with almost double the running time than later the edited and cleaned file. There's hard work going into it all to make it sound so effortless.

I am always in awe of people who can do it almost flawlessly.

Well, I don't know if Kitty ever makes an error, but I know I do. My raw recordings are usually 50% longer than my final files. Still, after 6 years. Now some of the errors aren't really wrong - they might be attempts are different voices or inflection, breaks for page scrolling (to avoid mouse noise), to wait until the fire truck or ambulance goes by, to have a sip of water - but many of them still are stumbles or wrong words or other actual errors.

I try to stay relaxed during recording (to the extent that the character role allows) rather then striving for first-say perfection, and accept that I get to edit and make my final file - the only one I share - sound good.

Thanks, Todd

I'm afraid, Lord Twombley won't have much of a relaxing role this time.

Hahaaha! Yes, my “little” cough is a warning that I have arrived.... very much like my brother’s resounding “Heah!” Everyone knows when we arrive, if we want them to know. :twisted:

All I can suggest is getting all the appropriate parts claimed before the siblings realize I have posted a new play. Which could mean that some of us "nice" people have to play the villains (rather than the fool as I do so often).

Thanks, Todd

the problem is they are so good at it. But I definitely will play a really bad-ass villain one day in here :twisted: I think the Marchioness in Paul Jones wasn't such a nice lady either, come to think of it. :hmm:

Expect the unexpectorated.

No need to mention the seven years in Her Majesty's Time-Sharing Resort at Botany Bay, Sis.
