here is my final part, Juno. I tried to copy your tune, Tomas, but I gave her more of an alto-tone. Juno always strikes me as the more matronly, so it's fitting she should have a deeper voice than Ceres.

I did not quite manage to make the same reverb, but hopefully it's fitting. If not, I still have my unedited file, you could give me your reverb-numbers and I do the exact same.
This sounds pretty close to my reverb, so no need to change it. Otherwise a great rendition of this small part. I like that you deepened your voice to distinguish from Ariel. And thank you for singing a similar tune; I think it will work very well. :9: All PL OK!

I guess you're all done, Sonia. :clap: Just PL work and editing left. Now I need to begin recording one of my main characters...

The first Prospero scene is ready for PL. The longest scene in the play and he is in it throughout. It clocks in at 21:54.

:shock: woah ! one of your scenes is longer than all my roles together :? What a feat ! Well done, Brad, Prospero sounds regal and competent, but he has a softer side too. Excellently characterized. And almost word-perfect.

I have two small notes to make though:

> at 14:35: repeat: "Go take this shape, And hither come in’t" - is there one version you prefer, then you can cut the other one out

> at 20:13: "and husks wherein the acorn cradled." - you say "within", may be optional :hmm:

Thanks and I Happy New Year to the whole troupe !

and a great performance here as well, Craig :clap: you guys were really busy yesterday. I loved the mariner's screams. This will sound perfectly later on assembled into a mayhem chorus 8-)

Alonso has all the composure of a king, although quite despairing when his son's life is at stake. A tragic figure. Well characterized there as well. :thumbs:

Mariner and Scenes 1.1. and 2.1. are already PL ok.

> Act 3.3. is in Stereo for some reason, all the other files were ok in Mono. Could you just re-export in Mono please ?

two small things to correct in Act 5:

> at 2:08: stumble and repeat: "Is she the goddess that hath sever’d us," - "goddess" can be cut once and you said "served" instead of "severed", which is a change of meaning in this case

thanks !

Prospero scenes. 2_1 is corrected. 3_1, 3_3, and 4_1 are read. I only have 5_1 to go.

This is probably going to sound like a very silly concern. 4_1 contains the most famous passage I have had to read so far in these Shakespeare projects. I am actually worried that I overacted it if that's even possible. :oops: Let me know how "our revels now are ended" to "We are such stuff as dreams are made on, etc." sounds, please. It begins at 3:48.

no overacting as far as I'm concernced. :thumbs: I think it quite fitting that Prospero would say these lines with pathos and emotion. Absolutely well done, all of the scenes. I can mark everything PL ok so far. That leaves you one final long scene.

My final scene may have to wait a few days. I seem to be coming down with a cold and it's already affecting my voice a little.
