Oh, my, I don't know what happened in Act 2. :shock:

Anyway, all four acts have been corrected, and above are NEW time stamps for Act 2.

nicely done, Tomas. I took a liking to Denham, and luckily you didn't make him overly pompous. He is much more endearing the way you portray him. :thumbs:

Acts 2-4 PL ok.

One missed line in Act 1:

> at the very end: (p. 37) "We shall meet tonight, I hope"

thanks

Have at it. I had considered starting over (this has been done for a couple weeks). Feel like my idea of who this person is wasn't terribly consistent. The accent got a little weird, especially between drunk and not. If needed I will get any alterations (including starting over) in a short time - but I figured it was better to get this submitted.

Thank you. Maybe the character is purposefully confused...

no need to redo this, Dale !! I immensely liked the performance, especially the drunk scene :lol: your hiccups sound quite genuine :thumbs: An absolutely intriguing character you gave him and this will sound great once assembled. Thank you for this !

Acts 1 and 2 are straight PL ok, though Act 2 is a bit over our accepted volume limits with 93 dB. No need to reupload, this will get adjusted anyway in the editing phase. I'll make a note for Todd. Only careful with the volume, it could distort the sound if there is too much clipping going on. Here you were lucky though, it sounds ok.

A couple PL notes for the other two acts though:

Act 3:
> at about 2:16: (p. 133) please insert: "Ah !"
> the volume is 94 dB, you could reduce it by about -4 dB maybe, but this will get adjusted anyway

Act 4:
> at about 0:35: (p. 188) please insert: "No, no, no !"
> also this volume is over our limits with 92.4 and could also get reduced by -2 dB maybe

Note for Todd: at page 46: I think it is Beryl who is putting her arms around Howard's neck and saying "Australia!" It makes more sense, since Mrs Bompas then says "You stifle him Beryl". I think I read this line, but maybe we should make a note for Beryl to include it instead.

Thanks

I had computer trouble all month, :roll: which delayed me from recording. Today my computer is back to speed, so I hurried up to get all the acts in. I hope no lines are missing, but in the rush, I might have missed some...
:D :D

wonderful, Linda, I'm so happy you could do the part despite the computer problems. Honoria is exactly like I pictured her :lol: quite feisty and not too soft-spoken. The fighting scene with drunk hubby ending in kissing was simply delicious.

Acts 1 and 4 are already PL ok.

You did miss a few lines in the other acts though, sorry about that:

Act 2:
> at about 0:01: (p. 62) "Good morning. Will you taste my pralines ?"
> at about 0:52: please insert 3 missed quotes:
(p. 64) "I do, mother – the dance of the sylphs"
(p. 74) "I'm glad you've come."
(p. 74) "We'll have a fine time of it if you'll not bother me with your instruction. Have a praline ?"

Act 3:
> at about 0:15: (p. 120) "What's the matter ?"

thank you !!!
