If we don't hear from you for three months, your project will be opened up to a group project as soon as a Book Coordinator can be 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 have it re-instated).
    This paragraph is temporary and will be replaced by the MC with the list of sections and reader (Magic Window) once this project is in the admin system.

Hi mairtin - welcome to LibriVox! Recording a solo is a big undertaking - bigger than most people realize - so we ask new volunteers to contribute a poem or chapter to a collaborative project first, just to get the hang of everything. You'll be much better able to complete the above template once you've done this (you still need to give examples of your intro, outro, file name, and ID3 tags). We can put this project on hold if you like, and then when you're ready, it will be easy to retrieve and you won't have to post again.

Hi Mairtin
How exciting it would be to have some Irish recordings on Librivox . A solo is a big start, I'm hoping you could record some PD poetry for the multilingual poetry collection just to get all your recording skills honed ? First up a 1 minute test is a great idea - to get the technical bits all OK
