Hi, Chris! I sure hope Kristin doesn't mind me poking my head in - I've helped with the recordings on this project, so posts to it show up on my feed. :)

Welcome to LibriVox!! It's very nice to have you. There are two things of note regarding your request to narrate a chapter in this project:

First, this is a little bit different project from the majority of those we do in LibriVox. Being a dramatic reading, with parts, when we sign up to do recording, we don't sign up for one chapter. We sign up for the entire role, however many chapters that may be. So, somebody signing up for narrator would do all of the chapters for the narrator portion. This book is so long, though, that the narrator is divided into the 5 volumes. So, while somebody would only be signing up as narrator for one portion of the book, it is far more work than one chapter. It is highly recommended to us to do a couple of single-chapter recordings in a normal group project before taking on something like a narrator role, a solo book, or being a book coordinator for a new group project.

Second, you'll need to do that 1-Minute Test thing before you record a section somewhere. Did you receive a welcome email? It should have a link in it for that. If not, shoot me a message, and I'll find the link and send it to you. :) It's not really a test at all, but a simple short recording to make sure your system is set up with the proper technical specs for LibriVox files.

Very good to have you on board! Hope to cross paths again.

Thank you Lynette. I joined LibriVox specifically for this book. It is my life time favorite book and hope I can contribute some how. I got a the welcome email and think i can get a sample submitted.

Hi MaryAnn

Sorry about the delay getting set up here. I'm ready to go pending your test review.

I'm using a pop filter over a Samson C01 mic, into a Behringer Xenix Q1202 mixer, then into a Mac Powerbook. The file is recorded in Audacity 2.4.1 and is unedited. Look forward to your comments.

Thanks, harryson.

Hi,
First MaryAnn is the MC of this project, which means she's the admin that's holdin down the technical part, which is more like a silent partner. I'm the BC, which means I'm the Book Choordinator, and the one setting the project up. I also happen to have some great help in Linny, who's signed up for the editing, and a couple of other long time LV'ers that jump in here nd there;)

Second, you need to post your test in this forum: viewforum.php?f=21
They'll help you with everything there:)

Thank you, LCaulkin and Twinkle, and Welcome, JamesCristopher! As they've said, you need to finish the 1 minute test first, just to make sure the specs are right. Unfortunatly, right now I am holding narrator vol 5 for someone else who is also and also doing their test. That means that right now, the only think left available are the support roles, which you can chose several from.
I'll PM you about it:)
