Hello! May I please claim section 12?
Absolutely! All yours.

Since this is your first recording, before I can officially sign you up for the section, I will need to know under what name you'd like to appear in the catalog. This can be your real name, your forum name, or another name if you so wish. We can also add a link to a personal website or blog if you wish.

Don't hesitate to ask any questions, we're all here to help each other out. Other than that, welcome to the project, and happy recording! :D

Hi Foon, thanks for the quick reply! I guess I'll use my real name, Zarina Silverman, for the catalog. May I provide the web links at a later date? I've been working on a new site which isn't *quite* ready to publish.

Zozue:
Section 3 is very nicely read!

I have two small PL notes:
- There is a bit of background noise, it's not excessive, but your recording would sound nicer without it. Fortunately, Audacity (if you're using that?) is really good at cleaning up these things. Let me know if you need help with that!
- At 6:19, the words "very sweetly" are part of the illustration, not of the text--I don't think the stepmother wakes him very sweetly ;)

Otherwise, lovely reading! :thumbs:

Hi there! I suspect this post was meant to go to someone else.

Do you mean the one right above yours?
Nope, that's right where it should be!
All conversation about sections in the same project go in the same thread (and yes, sometimes it can be a mess..), so that one wasn't a response to you, but a response to a message on the previous page ;)

Oh, ok, thanks! I've been reading through the forums, and wow, this place is pretty dense and convoluted. I like it! Hope to record my first piece today, if the neighbors cooperate 😉

Hi

I thought the "very sweetly" seemed out of place... I was reading off of the txt version of the book, which makes it easier for me, but sometimes some parts like footers and captions are out of place.

I ran it through a noise reduction effect. Hopefully this is better.

I'll still do section 4.
