Hi Kristin-
Is there a Section 800, chapter 5 still open? Do you have the link for that read, so I could claim it?
Dave
Hi! No, that's just a marker for volume 5, so it's not available for claiming. We are currently filled up

Kristin,
I'm checking in. Am I accurate in the following?
-Chapters 6, 10 and 11 are ready for edit
-Chapters 4, 5, 14, 15 are waiting on a change of reader. Unfortunately, it looks as if the new Abby has abandoned the role.
-Cast list for vol 1 and chapter 64 are pending PL.

Last I heard about the cast list was that it wasn't ready for PL yet. But yes, chapter 64 is pending.

It's so wierd, the summer happened and everyone kinda checked out, and then I kinda forgot what I was doing here. I was sp convinced that everything was waiting on someone else that I actually had to double check that the mw was loading right:P I'll try and go through stuff this weekend, and send out some reminder.

Oh, that would be correct. Since we will have a new Abby the cast list will be updated.

I must have forgotten to take 5 off of my list.

I finished another editing project this week so hopefully by next week I’ll start editing here again.

If you can PL some of the small parts I believe that will also give me more chapter to edit.

Maybe if more of the Count’s files come in I’ll have a longer list of chapters to edit? :wink:

I'm still here. I've just been working on a bunch of other projects -- I've recorded some more Max chapters and need to edit them.

Hi there,

If the "Abbe" is still available (or available again) I would like to claim it.

Thanks,

Wayne

Edit 8:00pm PDT 24 Sept 2020: Kristin, I just noticed that iamjessebaxter claimed only chapter 14 of the Abbe ("claimed march 2020"per MW). That is his only activity in LV per his "reader page". Can we assume this has been 'orphaned' and that all 7 chapters for that character are available? I will do them all as soon as you give me the OK.

Thanks
Wayne

I know I was advised not to record a part without it being officially 'awarded' but I am sorely tempted in this case. :hmm:

I am so sorry! I didn't get the notifications (it happens sometimes, I don't know why). Believe me, I have tried to plan for me. The biggest problem is that I've been having a lot of "small" colds, and they always stick in my throat. Starting to wonder if I should just ignore that I might sound a bit scratchy and just get started.
These last couple of weeks I've been working on this surprisingly huge project and just didn't have any energy to spare, but I just closed it off, and have the next few days off, so I*ll get the PL:)

I am so sorry, as you might have seen, I wasn't getting the notifications. The abbe i all yours! Iamjessebaxter was the previous reader, and I just missed that secrtion when removing him from the mw, so they are indeed all free:)

And here we go, PL's!

President 1 - PL OK!
Lieutenan1 - PL OK!
Boville - PL OK!

James, I just noticed that you are recording in Stereo, when it should be in Mono. I'm pretty sure we can change this when we edit it together, but be aware of it for next time.
Captain Leclere - PL OK!
Doctor 1 - Missing the following parts at the end:
- "Ah, ah!" said the doctor, "I did not know that I had a rival; but I hope, governor, that you will show him all proper respect."
- "Pooh, pooh;" said the doctor, with the impiety usual in persons of his profession; "he is a churchman. God will respect his profession, and not give the devil the wicked delight of sending him a priest."

Servant 4 - Missing the last line:
"Mademoiselle Valentine passed through the room to go to Madame de Villefort's," said he; "and in passing, as she was thirsty, she drank what remained in the glass; as for the decanter, Master Edward had emptied that to make a pond for his ducks."

Valentine - All PL OK!

Is this what you really meant to say as the instructions in the first post say:

Set your recording software to:
Channels: 1 (Mono)
Bit Rate: 128 kbps
Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz

I am starting right now and was planning on doing it in Mono, so I think I will.

Well, here is my attempt.

https://librivox.org/uploads/maryannspiegel/montecristo_abbefaria_14.flac

Time: 4:35

I hope I did this correctly. This is my first recording in 'flac', all the others have been in Mp3. I have noticed that some of the contributions have been in Mp3. It is harder for me to get the correct volume in flac. Just let me know how it sounds, volume wise. If I need to adjust it, I certainly can.
