The War Chief of the Six Nations A Chronicle of Joseph Brant by Louis Aubrey Wood


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

http://librivox.org/the-war-chief-of-the-six-nations-a-chronicle-of-joseph-brant/



This is Volume 16 of the Chronicles of Canada Series
  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’d 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?
    Target completion date of this project: March 15 2009 – but try to send your recordings as soon as you can. 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 record within a month of claiming or post your intention of reading if life gets away from you or the chapter may be reassigned.
  4. Where do I find the text?
    Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/17014
  5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)!


    Detailed proofing please:
    Detailed Proof Listening- Proof-listening against the text
    -- While listening, follow the online text and note any differences that change the meaning (with the time).
    -- Do the intro and disclaimer match the instructions in the first post of the project thread?
    -- Are there any long silences or pauses that ought to be edited out? If so, note the time.
    -- Are there any stumbles or repeats that ought to be edited out? If so, note the words and the time.
    -- Is there excessive background noise, a constant hiss or buzz that detracts from the reading?
    -- Did you need to turn your volume up unusually high to listen to the recording? (Or did you find the recording too loud?)
    -- Are the correct closing words used at the end of the recording, as per the first post of the project thread?
    -- Are there 5 seconds of silence (10 if the recording is more than 30 minutes long) at the end of the file?

    Year of author's death 1955 so this is good for Canada, US and Austrailia.
  6. 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
    'Thayendanegea!' [Footnote: Pronounced Tai-yen-da-nay-geh.]
  7. DURING recording:
    Make sure you add this to the beginning and end of your recording:
    Start of recording (Intro)
    • "Chapter number of The War Chief of the Six Nations - 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]"
    • Say:
      " The War Chief of the Six Nations by Louis Aubrey Wood . Chapter X"

    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 The War Chief of the Six Nations .

    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!
  8. AFTER recording:
    Need noise-cleaning?
    Listen to your file through headphones. If you can hear some background noise, you may want to clean it up a bit. The new (free) version 1.3.3. of Audacity (Mac/Win) has much improved noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.

    Save files as
    128 kbps MP3
    josephbrant_##_wood.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is your chapter number. (e.g. josephbrant_01_wood..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: ## - Chapter title
    Artist: Louis Aubrey Wood
    Album: The War Chief of the Six Nations A Chronicle of Joseph Brant

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

    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.

    I'll need the following information from you when you submit a recording:

    • the file size of your .mp3 file/duration of the recording.

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

Chapter 6
Welcome Johnny. It is customary to claim a chapter before recording. You are lucky though that it is available. I would have asked for a short sample before attempting a whole chapter to check out your technical specs. Many first time recorders are a bit quiet.

Anyways, send it along when you have it all tagged.

How would you like to be credited in the catalog? Do you have a personal url you would like to include?

Esther :)

As I was going through chapter 1 I noticed this helpful footnote:
'Thayendanegea!' [Footnote: Pronounced Tai-yen-da-nay-geh.]

Note: The title for this chapter in the MW is incorrect. It should be FORT Stanwix and Oriskany.
