Lovely job on the stage directions, Ally!  I cannot wait to hear this all put together!
I have just a few things for you to correct and then we will be ready for Todd to start editing. A tip someone once gave me that helps when there are several corrections in a file is to start at the end of the list and work backwards. This keeps the time stamps the same instead of changing them is you work from the beginning.

Act 1
The volume for Act 1 is coming low at 84.3dB.  Could you please amplify the file by ~4 and then Todd can fine tune it.

0:24- please insert "Dramatis Personae"

7:21- please insert "Enter Matilda with letter, and pretending to cry" (pg 215)

Act 2
The volume for Act 2 is coming low at 81.2dB.  Could you please amplify the file by ~6 and then Todd can fine tune it.

4:38- please insert "Puts Cobb's finger on the newspaper at random" (pg 223)

5:08- heard "Tom takes up newspaper and exits" line reads "Tom takes up newspaper and sits". 
Since Tom is still on stage with lines lets go ahead and fix that.

6:31- please insert "Mr. Effingham rising and approaching Tom" (pg 225)

Act 3
0:57- please insert "Rises" (pg 228)

1:01-1:43 can be cut.  It is a few repeats of the full line at 1:46

3:21- please insert "all take out books and write" (pg 229)

3:24- please insert "Aside" (pg 229)

9:27- please insert "End of Tom Cobb; or Fortunes Toy, by W.S. Gilbert"

Once you've made the corrections to these files, re-upload them keeping the same file name and let me know they are ready to check over.

Good timing! Had just a few minutes to check these over before I'm out the door.

Thank you, Ally! All Stage Directions are now PL-OK :clap:

Edit away, Todd!

I have assembled all three acts - each is just over 1/2 an hour. I now need to listen to them and groom them by adjusting volumes and gaps between characters.

Thanks, Todd

Acts 1 and 2 are PL-OK!

Just had a very enjoyable evening of listening to this. Everyone sounds great together and I can't wait to hear the final act!

Project is uploaded to Archive where our catalog lives; it takes a while to derive all the different file types they offer to go along with our mp3s. Could be 2 minutes, 2 hours, 2 days....

I'll post when it is complete and the project is ready for listeners - including you!

Thank you very much for lending your voices, and a special thank you to jennlea for all the PL!

Todd

(I already have another Gilbert underway - Sorcerer in my signature line. More after the March cleanup.)
