Well, ALL are good, but let me just start with 37, if I may.
I'll follow and pick up some more later, perhaps.

Wow! Here I thought the project was going to be me and one or two of my closest friends. Then the doorbell rang and the whole gang showed up! :lol:

Claims are all entered. Thanks!

I would like to claim Ps 100 for either myself or my father @candleshine to record.
Welcome, PandaP! I've entered you and candleshine in for those two sections. Before starting in on them, we HIGHLY recommend the 1-minute test to check your tech settings, volume, etc. It's not an audition, but a "sound check" to be sure that your equipment and settings are working correctly. :) If your father is using the same mic as you are, then you probably only have to do 1 test (unless you want to check to be sure the mic placement relative to the mouth is OK on both of you - checking to make sure there aren't big popping sounds when you say P, T, or K sounds). Link to instructions is here: https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=1-Minute_Test

And also, do you have any preferences as to how your name will show up in public (on the catalog pages)? Some people use a nickname or their forum name, some their real name. I recommend using whatever name you say (if any) when you say, "recorded by [your name]" as that's how listeners will look for you. (Keep in mind that prospective employers, classmates, enemies, etc. can also find you using the catalog name, so be cautious if privacy might be an issue.)

Okay, thanks! They're both OK, although your dad's is on the low side of OK for volume. It's OK; just shouldn't go much lower. Yours is on the higher side of OK. It's OK; just don't get much louder. ;)

I've added you in to those sections. Here's your catalog page: https://librivox.org/reader/14910
You can keep track of your assigned sections there. (Click on Reader section details to see each section.)
Your father's is here: https://librivox.org/reader/14911

To get to this link yourself, use your name in any Magic Window in which you have an assigned section. Open your name link in a new tab/window (if you click on it directly, it opens right in the Magic Window). ;)

Feedback welcome. I think the outro might be too quiet.

Psalm 100: Good! The outro has a different tonal quality to it, but I think its volume is fine - matches the rest well enough. :) Here are the things to fix:

3 seconds of silence at start; should be less (about 0.5 to 1 second).

0:21-0:23 or so: "Psalm 100, Jubilate Deo" is repeated; can be cut out.

About 2 seconds of silence at the end; needs a total of 5.

(We recommend doing edits from the end to the beginning; that way any changes you make to the length doesn't affect the time stamps for the other changes.)

Please upload the edited file using the same file name, along with the file duration. Thanks! 8-)

Psalm 29 - Ascribe

https://librivox.org/uploads/triciag/psalmesofdavid_029_sidney_128kb.mp3
2:01

I have pronounced 'Iehoua' as Jehovah as I assume this is just an archaic spelling.

Thanks! Yes, I agree with pronouncing it that way, although I suppose one could pronounce it with a Y sound and still be understandable. :)

Chrysse - you're in for Psalm 4. Thanks!
