It seems like my voice is on the mend. I hope to record Acts 3 and 4 tomorrow, and hopefully that little bit about the incense party as well, for your Japan/China volume, Sonia.
thank you Devorah :9: but take good care of your voice first. We still need it ;)

Acts 1 and 2 are perfectly PL ok now. The "read by" became a bit repetitive LOL I hope you copy/pasted it :mrgreen:

thanks !

Great. Now I can start to assemble acts as the parts come in.

Thanks, Todd

Stage Directions for acts 3-5:

There were two more footnotes in act 4 that felt more like stage directions. I went ahead and recorded them. Feel free to cut them if you like. In scene 1: "Though Lelio says to Mascarille, "Enough, I know it all," he has not been listening to the speech of his servant, but, in the meanwhile, is arranging his dress, and smoothing his ruffles, and making it clear to the spectator that he knows nothing, and that he will be a bad performer of the part assigned to him. This explains the blunders he makes afterwards in the second and fifth scenes of the same act." And in scene 3: "Trufaldin having found out that Mascarille makes signs to his master, the servant pretends to fence."

perfect run-through all three acts, Devorah :thumbs: Everything PL ok.

As to the footnotes, yes maybe they are valuable as stage directions, it's always good to have them included. I let Todd choose whether he wants to use them.

Thanks for a great job !

short, but great ending speech, Alan :clap: thank you for your performance, I enjoyed listening to Ergaste :) it's PL ok, with a note to Todd, that the volume needs to be raised (it's only 83.5 dB, I had to crank it up a bit to hear it ;) )

that's another role finished :9:

Thank you all. I have assembled everything we have so far, though not ready for PL yet of course.

Thanks, Todd

why did you start with the final act ? :hmm: anyway, excellently portrayed, you sound quite boyish and play the "blunderer" quite well :lol: All PL ok, only one note:

> for the voice credit, please say your full character description: "LELIO, son to PANDOLPHUS, read by Leanne Yau"

but no need to reupload this one, you can insert it in one of the other files. Volume is also a bit low, I make a note for Todd to watch out.
