Baron Trump's Marvellous Underground Journey by Ingersoll Lockwood (1841 - 1918).

This project is now complete! All audio files can now be found on the catalog page for this project: http://librivox.org/baron-trumps-marvellous-underground-journey-by-ingersoll-lockwood/

Quote:
The Little Baron Trump is a man of adventure. He and his dog Bulger have already braved many adventures together, but at the time our story opens, they are kind of dull at home, upset with the increasing familiarity of both two- and four legged neighbours. What to do? Luckily, an old manuscript of the learned Spaniard, Don Constantino Bartolomeo Strepholofidgeguaneriusfum, falls into his hands, and off he goes to a journey to the centre of the earth. <br></br>This is a remarkable book from 1893, blending the tradition of the Münchhausen stories with more modern fantasy and science fiction. ( Carolin)


    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!): https://archive.org/details/barontrumpsmarve00lock
    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!

    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] of Baron Trump's Marvellous Underground Journey. 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:
        "Baron Trump's Marvellous Underground Journey, by Ingersoll Lockwood. [Chapter]"

      END of recording
      • At the end of the section, say:
        "End of [Chapter]"
      • 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 Baron Trump's Marvellous Underground Journey, by Ingersoll Lockwood. "

      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
      barontrump_##_lockwood_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. barontrump_01_lockwood_128kb.mp3)
    9. [b]Example ID3 V2 tags (just leave those blank!)

      Please ignore tags for Genre and Track Number - these will be filled in automatically at the cataloguing stage.
      Transfer of files (completed recordings) 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: Carolin
      • 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.

Thanks.

I have already recorded all the chapters of my claim, and now I'm just going thru the editing and my own proof-listening. I'm pretty sure I'll finish that up quickly.

So may I claim chapters 14 thru 24?

I discovered a booboo in the 4 files I uploaded. The title of the book in the intro is stated incorrectly.

I've made the corrections to each file and uploaded the new versions which are here:

Chapter 3 Time 9:18
https://librivox.org/uploads/carolin/barontrump_03_lockwood_128kb.mp3

Chapter 4 Time 11:18
https://librivox.org/uploads/carolin/barontrump_04_lockwood_128kb.mp3

Chapter 5 Time 9:52
https://librivox.org/uploads/carolin/barontrump_05_lockwood_128kb.mp3

Chapter 6 Time 12:47
https://librivox.org/uploads/carolin/barontrump_06_lockwood_128kb.mp3

Sorry about that.

Sylvia

Excellent reading of chapters 3-6! 3, 5, and 6 are PL ok. I have one note for you on chapter 4.

At about 1:31, you read the name of Ivan's home as "Hitch on the Hitch". This town is actually Ilitch on the Ilitch. It is easier to read in the chapter title of chapter 2, where it is in all caps: ILITCH ON THE ILITCH. Just this one correction, then this will also be PL ok. :)
