nice choir of whippers-in :) thank you, Alan. I am curious how Todd will merge such long speeches though. :shock: Well, I guess I'll find out soon. :lol:

PL ok :)

thank you, Jim, for all these. You bring quite some urgency into your whippers and musicians. :lol: This will all sound so annoying later on assembled. The whole scene is quite hectic. :mrgreen:

I have a few short notes to correct still:
> for the voice credit: it is "whippers-in" not "whispers" ;)
> from 0:05-0:13: this first part is done by the whippers-in, you can cut it here
> for the voice credit, could you please say the entire description, which you can find in the MW: Lycas, attendant on Iphitas, read by Jim Locke

The rest is excellently performed. Thank you again for the fast turn-around. This will push us quite near the finishing line. :9:

thank you, Jim, now all PL ok. :clap:

And that gives Todd a lot of work. All acts are ready, except Act 5 and one voice credit missing for Act 1. (oh I remember 2 acts were already done :lol: )

I still can't get it to work. Save Link says it is an HTML document. Could you upload it again so I can try again?

(I downloaded a buncha other stuff today without trouble, but I've had 6 unsuccessful tries on this one.)

Thanks, Todd

Act 1 is also ready for PL. Missing one voice credit, but the rest is ready.

Thanks, Todd

just had a listen and it sounds great. The merging of voices works fine, especially when you take snippets from each and let them fall into each other. :thumbs: But also the entire group speeches are still understandable, though a tiny by loud for my taste.

I have only one major issue with this act:

> from 0:49-0:57 / 8:40-9:19 / 9:44-12:15 / 15:23-15:51 - all of Alan's Arbates speeches have a very disturbing background rustling. I wonder why I didn't hear it the first time around, maybe I didn't use earphones then.
I tried Audacity's noise-cleaning and it works if you take a sample from the noise, because it is a very regular sound, so it also cleans it up inside the speeches.
I took a sample between 8:50 and 8:51 and it worked well, the sound was completely gone. Strangely enough after 15:51 (even in mid-speech) his sound was better again, the noise disappeared :hmm: I wonder what it was, it sounds like static, very regular.

The rest is fine, but for listening pleasure I think it would be best to clean these parts manually.

Thanks ! The next act needs to wait for tomorrow, I don't think I can do more today...
