Tom Jones by Henry Fielding.

This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page here:

http://librivox.org/history-of-tom-jones-by-henry-fielding/


BC for this project is currently Kehinde
  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?
    Target completion date of this project: July 2008 – but try to send your recordings as soon as you can. 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.
  4. Where do I find the text?
    Gutenberg e-text: http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/6593
  5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)!


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

    Set your recording software to:
    Bit Rate: 128 kbps
    Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz
  7. DURING recording:
    Make sure you add this to the beginning and end of your recording:
    Start of recording (Intro)
    • "[Section] of [Book title]. 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:
      "Tom Jones, by Henry Fielding. [Chapter]"

    End of recording
    • At the end of the section, say:
      End of [Section]"
      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 Tom Jones, by Henry Fielding."

    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:
    Save files as
    128 kbps MP3
    tomjones_##_fielding.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is your section number. (tomjones_01_fielding.mp3)
    ID3 V2 tags
    (To find out more about ID3 tags, go to our wiki: http://librivox.org/wiki/moin.cgi/WhatIsID3)
    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: Henry Fielding
    Album: Tom Jones
    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 (when your upload is complete, you will receive a link - please post it in this thread):
      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: jo - knotyouraveragejo
    • If this doesn't work, or you have questions, please check our How To Send Your Recording wiki page.
    I'll need the following information from you when you submit a recording:
    • your name/pseudonym as you want to appear in the LibriVox catalog, and your website URL if you like. These are only necessary if this is your first LibriVox recording.
    • the file size of your .mp3 file.

Any questions?
Please post below or PM me.

Hello, here I am! Your friendly neighborhood MC here to save the day.

The first post looks fine to me as it is. However, regarding the compression of multiple chapters into one file...

I don't think it's necessary to announce "End of Chapter X" within the file -- just begin the next chapter. E.g.
"Chapter One.

It was a dark and stormy night.

Chapter Two.

Etc..."
Then, at the end of the recording, say:

"End of Section xx"

The number would be the section number claimed in the Magic Box.

Does that sound alright to you? I'll hold off on editing the first post to include that info until you agree.

ok, one another thing when you return, caeristhiona (does that abbreviate at all, btw?) - i was going to include the intro in section 1, along with the first few chapters, so we don't need a section 0, just sections 1-65.

hefyd, 5-10 are yours, bearing in mind that this will be the whole of books II and III. there should be info up here on how all the sections break down within the next day.

thanks

hi jemma

i'll put you down for the relevant section.

btw, you can address posts to do with claiming chapters to me, chris. caet does the complicated stuff in the background that i won't even pretend to understand...

***
on a general note, just waiting for caet to re-edit the recording instructions and get rid of the 'section 0' in the magic window. probably best for people to wait until everything is tidied up up there before actually recording anything, just to avoid possible confusion over chapter/section names and what you're supposed to say at the beginning and end.

looking forward to hearing how people do the voices in this one. lots of stupid old men to have fun with...

Hi Chris

I try to avoid having fun with stupid old men, but I will wait a bit until all's under control before recording and see where temptation leads me.

Hi,

I'd like to do Book 6, sections 18, 19, 20 and 21. Is that OK?

Dianne - they are yours. Just bear in mind that those will eventually be called Sections 17-20 when Section 0 is axed. Again, come back soon when full instructions and so on are up and all will be clear... (see earlier posts)

GOOD heavens, this thread got going quickly!

hosmer: I think I've gotten it down right as far as editing the first post, fixing the box, etc goes. :) Let me know if there's anything else you need. So far you seem to have a pretty good handle on how to manage this.

Hi Chris,

Thanks - I'll watch for the change. In the meantime, I'll start recording Book 6.

You can put me down for Sections 11 and 12!

:D :D

Now, about ID3 tags... Since a section is multiple chapters, what goes in the title box? The section number as you've laid them out? (I gather you want the multiple chapters in a single file.)
