Hi,

This is Don Pedro Act III. Could you let me know if it is too over the top?

Thank you,

Well, here is v.2 :) . I just went ahead and did the entire thing over again, trying to follow the suggestions you have on a couple of them, and doing it correctly (I hope), it turned out even longer. :roll:
:? ok here there was a lot to correct, so I can understand your impulse to record it from scratch. But usually we encourage editing instead of redoing it all. Especially for such long sections. Simple reason is that it is a lot more work for the reader and also for the prooflistener, since instead of Spot PL I need to relisten to it all as well.

So, that said, I did relisten to it all and on the whole you included most of the correct narrator's lines. :thumbs: So well done, and so sorry for the extra work you had to do.

I still found a few notes to correct, but please, do not re-record it all again. It's not that much to amend and it will really save time to just spot edit:

> at 4:35: (p. 8) "Don Lopez, aside" – it's the first sentence that is the aside, so the name needs to be included

> at 11:39: (p. 15) "gets left of chair" – you say "out of chair"

> at about 11:35: (p. 16) missed line: "Re-enter Violante, right"

> at 15:56: (p. 20): "Flora, aside" – we must include the name here as the colonel is mentioned right before.

> at about 19:50: missed ending: "End of Act 1"

> and finally, could you also do one round of noise-cleaning, the background noise is a bit noticeable

thank you

Sonia
I am sorry Sonia for all the extra work. My thought process in do it over again is that with so many things that I missed (24 to be exact) the time would be (and was) so much longer that the 'time stamps' would be so far off it would take a lot of time just to find them.

I think I got them all correct this time. My thought on the one at 4:35 was that since the [aside] was in the middle that it referred to the words after it rather than the words before it. :oops:

And, I can't believe that I sent it without the 'Noise Reduction'. This should be a lot quieter.

And I promise the rest of them will be much better. :)

Sonia,

I am going to risk it. I have some time today and I really think I have this thing figured out. It isn't rocket science, and as I am not a rocket science I should be able to figure it out. 8-)

So here is Act II: https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/wondersecret_directions_2_128kb.mp3

Time: 9:50

P.S. I remembered to 'Noise Reduce' it this time. :wink:

in my experience here in the drama forum, you can rarely go over the top :mrgreen: in fact your Don Pedro is quite as I imagined him. Stern and firm, and not noticing that he is being duped :lol: Excellently acted out, there is nothing I need to add. Looking forward to your next act.

Oh just a short note: you don't have to say "act 3" and "end of act 3", this will be done by the narrator

Thanks Peter !!! Happy to hear more from you in other plays as well. :)

that is why I said it would be best to start with the final note, that way the time stamps for you would have stayed the same ;)
My thought on the one at 4:35 was that since the [aside] was in the middle that it referred to the words after it rather than the words before it. :oops:
yes in modern plays that is usually correct, but these old scripts have the annoying habit of often putting the aside after the sentence it refers to (but not always...to make it more interesting :roll: ) So we have to be diligent and actually read the sentence and decide which one is meant as aside. I see in the second act you found another one :thumbs:

Act 1 is now entirly PL ok.

some may argue rocket science is easier :lol: no, just joking. And yes it looks like you got the hang of it now (knew you would) :thumbs: you only missed the intro here, but for the rest, all is as it should be. Great job, Wayne !

> optional: you can cut out "stage directions read by..." because we only need that once in the cast list

Here is Act II v. 2.0: https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/wondersecret_directions_2_128kb.mp3

Time: 10:04

I didn't realize that I had to put the disclaimer on each act. :oops:

And as to the starting at the end for the edits, I missed that, and as I said before, read all the instructions even if you know what they are going to say. :roll:

This is Don Pedro Act 4.
https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/wondersecret_donpedro_4.mp3
hehe, Don Pedro is unvoluntarily funny in this act, ranting and raving about, but not really being heeded by anybody. :lol: Well done again, Peter. I loved the performance.

You only missed the first sentence which was spoken off stage:

> at about 0:06: (p. 55) missed line: "Bid Sancho get a new wheel to the chariot, presently."

> also careful with the volume, it's slightly under our accepted minimum of 86 dB

thanks

and just finished the feisty Flora as well. Todd, you're in for verbal abuse again in Act 2. (you should have given me that ring and all would have been easier) :mrgreen: I had lots of fun. :lol:
