This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page here:

  1. How to claim a part, and 'how it all works' here
    1) Find the monologue that you want to record. 2) Record it! 3) Post a link to the file, link to the text, file size, and - if your new - your catalog name and personal URL if desired.
  2. New to recording?

  3. Is there a deadline?
    Target completion date of this project: March, 14, 2008 – (Pi day) but try to send your recordings as soon as you can.
  4. Where do I find the text?

  5. BEFORE recording:
    Please check the Recording Notes:
    http://librivox.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=6427#6430

    Set your recording software to:
    Bit Rate: 128 kbps
    Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz
  6. DURING recording:
    Make sure you add this to the beginning and end of your recording:
    Start of recording (Intro)
    • "[Title of Monologue] from [Play title, act ##, scene ##]. By William Shakespeare. This is a LibriVox recording. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name]"
    • End by saying:
      "End of [Title of Monologue] from [Play title, act ##, scene ##]. This recording is in the public domain.
    If you wish, say:
    "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"

    Please leave 5 seconds silence at the end of your recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes!

    Also, please remember to check this thread frequently for updates!
  7. AFTER recording:
    Save files as
    128 kbps MP3
    [monologuetitleinoneword]_[playnameinoneword]_[act##]_[scene##].mp3 (all lower-case). Ex: (dowenotbleed_merchant_03_01.mp3)

    ID3 V2 tags
    (To find out more about ID3 tags, go to our wiki: http://librivox.org/wiki/moin.cgi/WhatIsID3)
    Add the following tags to your .mp3 file (how you do this depends on which software you use – if you are unsure about ID3 tags, send me a message). Please mind upper and lower case!

    Title: [Play Title] - [Monologue Title] ([Act ##, Scene ##]) (ex. The Merchant of Venice - If You Prick Us Do We Not Bleed (Act 03, Scene 01)
    Artist: William Shakespeare
    Album: Shakespeare Monologues 05

    Please ignore tags for Genre and Track Number - these will be filled in automatically at the cataloging stage.

    Transfer of files (completed recordings)
    Please always post in this forum thread when you've sent a file.
    In order of preference:-
    • If you don't have your own server space, please upload with the LibriVox Uploader:
      http://upload.librivox.org
      Image
      (If you have trouble reading the image above, please message an admin)
      If this doesn't work, or you have questions, please check our How To Send Your Recording wiki page.
    • If you have your own server space, post the link here. Please leave the file in this location until the project is catalogued.
    • If you don't have your own server space, you'll need to transfer the file to one of the free file transfer services available. For a list of options, please check our How To Send Your Recording wiki page.


    I'll need the following information from you when you submit a recording:
    • your name/pseudonym as you want to appear in the LibriVox catalog, and your website URL if you like. These are only necessary if this is your first LibriVox recording.
    • the file size of your .mp3 file.


Any questions?
Please post below or PM me. :)

I know you have one thing from me to include - but I ask again, anything anyone would particularly like to hear included which has so far been missed out?

:twisted:

I have not read this since using it for a audition piece in college. I ended up with the part of Peter Quince in Midsummer's...another WS character that directs a play within a play (there's poetic justice for you).

Here we go. I've only recorded a couple of poems so far and am a newbie. I think I did it correctly this time. :oops: I checked and I don't think this one has been done in the previous monologue collections.

Title: Romeo and Juliet - Thou Know'st The Mask of Night is On My Face (Act 02, Scene 02)
Artist: William Shakespeare
Album: Shakespeare Monologues 05

Here's the text...

And my reading...
