The Rover Vol. 01 No. 03, edited by Seba Smith (1792 - 1868) and Lawrence Labree.

This project is now complete! All audio files can now be found on the catalog page for this project https://librivox.org/rover-01-03-by-various/
"The Rover: A weekly magazine of tales, poetry and engravings, original and selected" was a magazine started in 1843 by Seba Smith and Lawrence Labree. The editors aimed at a high quality standard in their selection of short stories and poetry. Every half-year, the 26 weekly issues were also published under a bound compilation. This is the third issue, containing 5 stories. ( Sonia)
    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/rover02labrgoog/page/n49/mode/2up
    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!

    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)
      • "Section [number] of The Rover Volume 1, Number 3. 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 Rover Volume 1, Number 3, edited by Seba Smith and Lawrence Labree. Section [Number and Title]" (see MW)

      END of recording
      • At the end of the section, say:
        "End of Section [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 Rover Volume 1 Number 3, edited by Seba Smith and Lawrence Labree"

      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
      rover0103_#_smith_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where # is the section number (e.g. rover0103_1_smith_128kb.mp3)

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

hello JSkai and welcome to the Rover magazine project :) I see you started with a test, but have you seen the feedback already ? There are still issues with your bitrate which you need to change. Could you post a second test back to the same thread so you can get your ok on it first please ? See here for feedback: viewtopic.php?p=1828155#p1828155

In the meantime I reserve the section 3 for you for one month, so you'll have plenty of time to finish your test. :) Once it's ok'ed please post back here and I'll assign you the section officially.

Thanks

Sonia

oh, hi again, Scott :) I see you took my advice and start with something less daunting than the World Story ;) yes a short story is probably more easy-going as first project. ;) I hope you have fun, it's reserved for you. Looking forward to hearing it, thank you

I'd like to read section 5, "The Necromancer". I'm already caught up in the story, may as well record it :)

I love to read, AND my employer matches my volunteer hours with a donation to the Internet Archive, flagged to benefit Librivox.org. How cool is that?

excellent, lovely to have your voice in this magazine as well, Kate. And actually The Necromancer was the title that sounded most promising to me from this collection. Looking forward to your narration. :9: Thank you

wohoo a new voice, thank you for your interest vonkluver :) I see you already passed your test brilliantly, so yes, I'll assign you section 4 right away. I'll open a personal reader page for you in a minute, if you like to have another reader name than your forum name, please let me know. (for example your real name)

Be back soon...

so here is your reader page, where you will see all your projects listed neatly :) https://librivox.org/reader/15535

As I said, I can still change your Reader Name if you wish, just let me know.

As this is your first official section, please read carefully through the first post, there are all the details on how to correctly speak the intro/outro and how to name the finished file.

Any questions, don't hesitate to ask. Now have fun with your first story. I am definitely looking forward to hearing it. :9:

And you made us fully claimed now, so I am moving the project away from Readers Wanted to Readers Found. And I will probably launch a new magazine tomorrow. 8-)
