Gwen Wynn by Mayne Reid (1818-1883).

Gwen Wynn
A Romance of the Wye

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/gwen-wynn-a-romance-of-the-wye-by-mayne-reid/
Gwendoline Wynn, our heroine, is an orphan-heiress who lives on the river Wye. She will live with aunt until she comes of age and her money. Vivian Ryecroft, our hero and a captain in the Hussars, is on a leave of absence in Herefordshire, salmon fishing on the Wye. Gwen and Vivian have a chance, and brief, encounter on the Wye, and Vivian is enchanted. Will our hero and heroine find love? Will it last? [Summary by Ann Boulais]

  1. How to claim a part, and 'how it all works' here
    To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All
    the ones without names beside them are “up for grabs.” Click "Post reply" at the
    top left of the screen and tell us which section you’d like to read (include the
    section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read
    points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
  2. New to recording?
    Please read our
    Newbie Guide to Recording!
  3. Is there a deadline?
    We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your
    claim (or by the target completion date, whatever is sooner). Please
    note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a
    timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your
    sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you
    post in this thread to request an extension.
    Extensions will be granted
    at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for
    whatever reason, just let me know and it’ll go back to the pool. There’s no
    shame in this; we’re all volunteers and things happen. The target completion
    date for this project is Jan 1st 2013.
  4. Where do I find the text?
    Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/35196
  5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)!
    If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or
    pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a
    personal website/blog.

    Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the
    Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening!
    Level of prooflistening requested: Standard
    [mw=edit me!]5408[/mw]
  6. BEFORE recording:
    Please check the Recording Notes:
    http://librivox.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=6427#6430

    Set your recording software to:

    Channels: 1 (Mono)
    Bit Rate: 128 kbps
    Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz
  7. DURING recording:
    Please leave no more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of
    your recording!


    Make sure you add this to the beginning and end of your recording:
    Start of recording (Intro)
    • "Volume [number], Chapter [number] of Gwen Wynn. - This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name]"
    • Say:
      "Gwen Wynn - A Romance of the Wye, by Mayne Reid. [Chapter]"

    End of recording
    • At the end of the section, say:
      End of [Chapter]"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "End of Gwen Wynn - A Romance of the Wye, by Mayne Reid."

    Please leave 5 seconds silence at the end of your recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes!
    Also, please remember to check this thread frequently for updates!
  8. AFTER recording:
    Need noise-cleaning?
    Listen to your file through headphones. If you can hear some constant background noise (hiss/buzz), you may want to clean it up a bit. The new (free) version 1.3.3. of Audacity (Mac/Win) has much improved noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.
    Save files as
    128 kbps MP3
    gwenwynn_##_reid.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is your section number. (e.g. gwenwynn_01_reid.mp3)
    ID3 V2 tags
    (To find out more about ID3 tags, go to our wiki: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/What_is_ID3)
    Add the following tags to your .mp3 file (how you do this depends on which software you use – if you are unsure about ID3 tags, send me a message). Please mind upper and lower case!
    Title: ## - [Section title]
    Artist: Mayne Reid
    Album: Gwen Wynn
    Please ignore tags for Genre and Track Number - these will be filled in automatically at the cataloguing stage.
    Transfer of files (completed recordings)
    Please always post in this forum thread when you've sent a file.
    Also, post the length of the recording (file duration: mm:ss) together with the link.
    • Upload your file with the LibriVox Uploader (when your upload is complete, you will receive a link - please post it in this thread):
      http://upload.librivox.org
      Image
      (If you have trouble reading the image above, please message an admin)
      You'll need to select the MC, which for this project is: neb - neckertb
    • If this doesn't work, or you have questions, please check our How To Send Your Recording wiki page.

Any questions?
Please post below or PM me. :)

Jeanny, you might want to add "Volume number" before "Chapter number" in the intro. Else some people will say it anyway, and some won't..

I can dpl. Will try to read a little from the book and wright a kind of summary today which I might change before cataloguing.
Looking for an easy read? Try Mollie's Prince and Nature And Art. Want to read a civil war novel? Try Order Number 11. Like feminist fiction? Try The Heavenly Twins.

Hey Jeanny,

Well, after quite a bit of heartache, I finally got everything figured out to record with my new computer. So here are two sections more sections and now that all is running smoothly again, it shouldn't take me long to finish up the next.

03 - 8:46 - http://upload.librivox.org/share/uploads/neb/gwenwynn_03_reid.mp3
04 - 20:12 - http://upload.librivox.org/share/uploads/neb/gwenwynn_04_reid.mp3

Thank you Mary Ann. :D
I'm afraid Jeanny is having issues with her connection, so I'm covering for her.
Stav, I see the first sections are in need of PL, do let me know if you need help (smile).
