Riotliights has not posted on the forums since February. It's probably time to figure out if his section with PL Notes can be salvaged, of if you need to orphan it and find another reader.

I had contact with him over PM in july, where he said he'd get on it. Just sent him a reminder, and if I don't hear back in a week, I'll take a look.

He hasn't come back to me, and all we are missing is the 'all' line, so it's okay

Hi Kristin,

I'd be happy to read the part of "Governor" in Chapters 14 & 19:

128 Governor Chapter 14
129 Governor Chapter 19

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

Baroness Danglars
Chapter 96 - PL OK!
Chapter 99 - PL OK!

That means you only have one chapter and some notes left and you are done:)

I would be interested in reading for Maximilien Morrel if the role is still available. It did not appear to be claimed in the Magic Window within the first post. As I am new to LibriVox as a volunteer, perhaps you could explain what "+ all" means for Chapters 40 and 63 and what "+ both" means for Chapter 117?

Thanks!

Welcome to LibriVox! Thanks, I will sign you up to Maximilien:)

+all and +both means that as well as reading the lines for Maximilien in those chapters, you will also read the lines marked as "all"/ "both".


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!

Thanks! I am slowly going through all the files, I could PM you when I've finished yours, if you wish.
