Haunted London by Walter Thornbury (1828 - 1876).
All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/haunted-london-by-walter-thornbury/

London: one of the oldest and most populous cities in the world. Surely it holds a few secrets within its ancient walls and the stories of ghostly presences abound. ( Lynne Thompson)






    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 would 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. 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.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/41580
    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


      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!

      Keywords that describe the book:

      ============================================
    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:
      No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
      Make sure you add this to the beginning of your recording:
      START of recording (Intro)
      • "Chapter [number] Part [Number] of Haunted London. 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], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
      • Say:
        "Haunted London, by Walter Thornbury. [Chapter, Part]"

      END of recording
      • At the end of the section, say:
        "End of [Chapter, Part]"
      • 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 Haunted London, by Walter Thornbury. "

      There should be 5 seconds silence at the end of the recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes.

      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 has much improved noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.
      Save files as
      128 kbps MP3
      hauntedlondon_##_thornbury_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. hauntedlondon_01_thornbury_128kb.mp3)


      Please ignore tags - these will be filled in automatically at the cataloguing stage.
      Transfer of files (completed recordings) [b]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: https://librivox.org/login/uploader
        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: lt - Lynnet
      • When your upload is complete, you will receive a link - please post it in this thread.
      • If this doesn't work, or you have questions, please check our How To Send Your Recording wiki page.

Thank you!

Edit: It looks like this is your first time as a DPL. I've added you to the list of proof listeners.
I suggest you read the wiki guide, if you haven't already: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Guide_for_Proof-listeners
There is a very useful quiz at the bottom, which I thoroughly recommend.

In order to access the MW, follow the guidelines for BCs... http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/BC%27s:_How_to_update_the_Magic_Window
You will mostly be concerned with the drop-down on the right-hand side.
Any questions, just ask.

Thanks for getting me set up. I did some PL'ing for Michele Fry last summer but this is my first DPL
adventure. And you are right, the quiz in the PL guide is quite helpful.

I've listened to your section 0. Everything is fine except the checker gives the volume level as 87.8.
Is that close enough or do you want to boost is slightly?

You will find me far less exacting than Michele - she tends to ask for word perfect PLing, whereas I ask for standard (which means you don't even need to read along with the text).
As for volume, anything between 87 and 91 is fine (and gets evened out during cataloguing). The latest version of Checker is even more lax, allowing 86-92.

Ah, I thought I saw something that said 89+-1. Now that you mention it, the checker didn't complain, just told me what it was. As soon as I get myself properly logged in I'll mark section 0 as PL OK. :thumbs:
