The Meadow Sprite, and Other Tales of Modern Germany by Richard von Volkmann (1830 - 1889) and Rudolf Baumbach (1840 - 1905).
Translated by Gertrude R. Schottenfels (1883 - 1940)


This project is now complete! All audio files can now be found on the catalog page for this project: https://librivox.org/the-meadow-sprite-and-other-tales-of-modern-germany-by-baumbach-and-volkmann/
Gertrude Schottenfels has collected and arranged eleven original tales from Germany in this volume. Ms Schottenfels alternates between stories written by Richard von Volkmann and Rudolf Baumbach, two authors active in the middle of the 19th century. The tales are varied and rather romantic, and can be enjoyed both by children and their parents. ( 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/meadowspriteothe00scho
    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: viewtopic.php?p=6430#p6430

      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 The Meadow Sprite, and Other Tales of Modern Germany. 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:
        "The Meadow Sprite, and Other Tales of Modern Germany. [Story name] by [author]. Translated by Gertrude R. Schottenfels."

      END of recording
      • At the end of the section, say:
        "End of Chapter [number]"
      • 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 The Meadow Sprite, and Other Tales of Modern Germany, by Richard von Volkmann and Rudolf Baumbach. Translated by Gertrude R. Schottenfels."

      There should be ~5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.

      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 latest version of Audacity is recommended for noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.
      Save files as
      128 kbps MP3
      meadowsprite_##_schottenfels_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. meadowsprite_01_schottenfels_128kb.mp3) --- ms schottenfels is the translator but this way we can keep it uniform instead of alternating.
    9. 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)

Hi Carolin, thanks for your reply! :)
Please use "Kaeri" as pseudonym, no website to link since I'm otherwise only active on flickr.

I already read through the detailed feedback for my test minute and will fix it accordingly :)
