I got four more DRs for you. I tried something new for me with the "Spectres" (since it says there are multiple in the text), please let me know if you think it's too unpleasant to listen to :lol:
I had a listen, and indeed I think it sounds a bit confusing. Without a text a didn't understand much. :( I think it's better to keep only one voice. In another poem I also played "the mothers" and only left one voice. It's ok to do that. Merging is very difficult to make it sound understandable.

What I often do with spectral voices it using a slight Reverb effect. Have you tried that ? It's under the Effects menu. It sounds cool and ghostly usually.

Thanks a lot for the feedback and useful suggestions. I took the most "spectral" of the four voices I did, added a sligth reverb and I think now it sounds spooky AND is understandable :lol:

I simply reuploaded the file, just to be safe, here's the link again:

I have three more DRs for you and also a question concerning section 94 - Lord Lovel: Is there a certain melody the text should be sung to or can I just read the lines?

...only after posting the links here I realised that I messed up the filenames somehow :oops: Do you want me to change them or is it ok because they're only parts of the DR anyway?

Thanks for listening and for putting up with me! :wink:

I at least didn't sing mine, just gave it a bit of a sing song rhythm with this end-repetition Nancy-cy. But the rest I was speaking

no it's ok, since they will be deleted anyway later on. Only the final file name is important. No worries :)

I'm very sorry but I just realized that I made a mistake again! For #86 I recorded "the wife" not "the lady" even though I named all the files correctly :oops: I'll rerecord / reupload the correct part as soon as possible!

And here's the narrator for #101 - Marmion and Douglas, which makes this part "ready to edit", I think. :D

I'd be happy to do the editing, if someone could PL my part first?

DEAL ! thank you Kati ! Your narrator is perfectly PL ok. So if you could PL the other parts while you edit, this will be super. :9: And then Anthony can check the final edited whole.

Hi Adam,

I just listened to your "Marmion" and it's really well and very expressively read! There's one small bit that might better be corrected, I think:

At 01:29 I hear "Lord Agnus" where it should be "Lord Angus"

Adrian's reading was great as well so I'm really looking forward to editing this section :9:

Yes, I guess Agnes sounds more like an old lady and not a fearsome Scottish warriour! Fixed. Same length. 1:37

thank you Adam, I put you up for 87 and 89. You can if you wish PL the parts already, but you can also wait until you stitch them together.

Here's Section 101 - Marmion and Douglas. It has been great fun! :thumbs: And thanks @Adam for the edit - although I know a "Lady Agnes" who might be just as fierce as a Scottish warrior :lol:
