The Life of Ludwig Van Beethoven, Vol. 1 by Alexander Wheelock Thayer (1817 - 1897). Translated by Henry Edward Krehbiel (1854 - 1923)


The first of three volumes of the first scholarly biography of Ludwig van Beethoven. Covers the years 1770-1802. ( Zain Solinski)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/43591
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!


    Magic Window:

    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:

      Login with your workflow BC credentials
      (If you have trouble reading the image above, please message an admin)

I suggested 37 sections because I thought it would be best to split each chapter in two, plus translator's introduction/preface.

Zain,

I can MC this for you.

MW is set up and started.

I have made a few changes to the first post. You can edit the first post - there is an "edit" button at the top right of the post when you are logged in. The Magic Window (MW) is up and started.

1) added a ~ to the forum title to indicate this project does not have a DPL

2) shortened the file name and added the ending ( _128kb.mp3 not just .mp3)

3) removed the sections on ID tags - our software will add these during the catalog process

4) removed the generic workflow login image and replaced it with a note to use your BC login

5) added dlolso21 as the destination uploader folder

As a soloist you are your own BC. Here is some information on how to access and manage the MW. There is a lot of information here, you might want to set up a bookmark in your browser.

Jo's simplified first-time login instructions (with pictures):

Workflow instructions for BC's and DPL's:
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1kVj409nG_E0XJ5UrrcL7EVx7Qyx-2UQ7dbw4mINi3XQ
Now in the wiki: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/BC%27s:_How_to_update_the_Magic_Window

Once you set up a password in the Workflow, remember that it is stored separately from your forum password and that changing one will not change the other. Also, please use this combination of login and password for the uploader as the generic one normally pictured in group projects has only permissions in the workflow to upload files, nothing else.

Please let me know if you have any questions or problems.

Zain,

We can change the number of sections, if needed, as the project progresses. The file linked by "Workflow instructions for BC's and DPL's:" contains information on how to add a section. I will delete any extra sections just before cataloging.

This looks to be a big project, I am guessing about 19 hours final running time. When you are selecting breaks for sections please try to keep each part between 15 minutes and an hour.

We have spent enough time on the Launch Pad, moving this to Going Solo.

Zain,

Thank you for the Intro. When you post about an uploaded please include the running time of the file. It helps the DPL quickly check that the file completely uploaded before they listen to the recording.

Sending a PM to reader, that I will be changing the status of this project to Abandoned if there are no posts or uploads by the end of March.
