Here is the recording for chapter 58 of Barrois:

https://librivox.org/uploads/maryannspiegel/montechristo_barrois_58.flac


Before I go and record the rest, I want to make sure that this fits the high quality standards for such a project. Hopefully this does not botch the character too much...

Welcome to LibriVox! Thanks, I will sign you up to Franz:) What Catalogue name would you like?

Please make sure you complete the "1 Minute Test" for review before you start actively recording any chapters for projects. This is NOT an audition, but a way to check to make sure all your technical settings are correct, your volume loud enough, etc. You will find the information for the 1-Minute Test Recording here: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/1-Minute_Test. The instructions also tell you how to upload your test and then post in the Listeners and Editors Wanted forum so someone can give you feedback on it.

Also, as this is a Dramatic Reading, here's a few tips to make a great recording.
First, try and make sure you have as little background noise as possible. Follow the tips here: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Noise_Cleaning.
Second, when recording a part, think of it as having a conversation. How would you naturally speak? read the text and see how the character reacts to the things around him, and if it doesn't say, then try to imagine it yourself. Let the reactions sound in your voice. A line can be read in extremely different ways, depending on if the character is sad or happy, so just remember to pay attention to the text and what is going on around him.
Third, when you edit after you have recorded (you will edit, we all do), leave at least 3-4 seconds between the lines, so that it will be clear when I edit where the break is.


At the Newbie Guide to Recording: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Newbie_Guide_to_Recording,you can see how to set up your computer to record.

If you'd like to introduce yourself to the community, you can do se here: http://forum.librivox.org/viewforum.php?f=17

An overview of how Librivox works can be found here: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/How_LibriVox_Works

There are numerous ways to volunteer here. An important one is proof-listening, which consists of checking someone's recording for errors. If you'd like to give that a try, you can find lots of information here: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Guide_for_Proof-listeners
One of our volunteers has created a number of videos that you might find helpful to learn more about the workings of Librivox. You can find a listing of those here: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/User:Philchenevert

Also to point out to professional (or aspiring) Voice Over artists, all our recordings are put back into the public domain which means sometimes they are sold on ebay, etc. Have a look at this page which describes our Public Domain policy: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Copyright_and_Public_Domain

I hope you have fun and please, don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions!

LV crashed before I had the chance to post this yesterday, but narrator chapter 73 is PL OK! Which means vol 3 is done:)


Yay!

I see the first two chapters are also PLed so I can continue with the recording. I didn't want to get too far ahead of the PL just in case I horrendously mangled one of the pronunciations and had to record a bunch all over again.

Alright, here is my first reading for Franz: https://librivox.org/uploads/maryannspiegel/montecristo_franzdepinay_31.flac
I tried to clean up the file, as well as adding those spaces in between lines. Apologies in advance if I messed something up, this is my first recording :?

PL for the newbies:

Barrois chapter 58 - PL OK! You, as many other people, tend to drop your voice at the end of your sentence. Be a little careful you don't drop too low, so that the line cuts out. Either keep on eye out while you read or while you edit your file. Also, If you could just add 'Barrois read by...' at the start of the next chapter, that would be good. (You said "Barrois by...")

Franz chapter 31 -
00:35 - You said "What game I shall find there!" should be "What game shall I find there!" (It's more of a question than a statement)
04:12 - Mispronounce "Ulysses". You seem to have tagged on an extra es.
07:08 - a long pause in the middle of a line
09:23 - missing line "Of course I have."
09:50 - you said "I do not know if the result is as agreeable..." should be "I do not know if the result will be as agreeable..."
10:03 - mispronounce "ma foi", listen here: https://no.forvo.com/search/ma%20foi/

You tend to change the words sometimes, small ones, and several times here I haven't mentioned because they don't change the text at all. Just be aware of it:)

Great reading, both of you, looking forward to hear more:)
