Back, and ready to pick up the microphone again. :D Maybe I could take the stage directions, please?

Here are three of the four sections of Martin Bennett. I ran into some technical issues with the third act that may require me to re-record a portion, something I do not have the time to do today.

Act One:

Act Two:

https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/fanny_martinbennett_2_128kb.mp3

Act Four:

I will try to fix Act Three over the weekend and post soon.

Take care,

Greg
Thank you, Greg! Wow, Mr. Bennet is so stiff it's a wonder he ever manages to sit down! :lol: You conveyed him perfectly, and I love that you relaxed his tone a little for his final lines in Act 4. :thumbs:

Each of these needs some small corrections. For act 3, it's not crucial, but would be helpful, definitely!

Act 1:
4:36 Added word. Text reads (p. 27), "...you will be able to tell whether..." I hear, "...you will not be able to tell whether..."

Act 2:
0:42 Missing line, p. 30: "The Times?"
1:15 Missing line, p. 37: "A-- sort of person has called..."
2:13 Two missing lines, p. 50: "Sit down" and "Carry your mind back...." (They were all hiding in some stage directions.)

Act 3:
3:37 More space here for stage directions after "We Bennets." (p. 60)

Act 4:
0:12 More space here for stage directions after "Miss Edith." (p. 82)
0:50 Missing line, p. 83: "Breakfast will be ready..."

Thank you, Andrew, it's easy to see why Fanny fell for you! :wink: I enjoyed listening, and I hope to hear lots more from you in the future! There are a few corrections I'll ask for from you, mostly minor but significant changes. :)

Act 1:
2:19 Word change. Text reads (p. 21), "why we walked from the station, and slipped in by the side door." I hear, "why we walked through the station, and slipped through the side door." (The second change doesn't matter much, but the first one makes quite a difference, so you may just want to correct them both.)
3:40 Word change. Text reads (p. 23), "Bennet will send your maid to you." I hear, "Bennet will send the maid to you." (This one might be a bit nitpicky, I don't know. But since they do have several maids, it might be confusing to leave it as the maid.)

Act 2 PL ok!

Act 3:
0:10 Two takes of "Hello, got a cup of tea there?" Please cut one of these.
2:09 At the end of this "Forever and ever and ever," it sounds like it's abruptly cut off at the end, which is a little off-putting. It seems that you might be making your cuts very close to the sound, and sometimes too close. Or perhaps it's some kind of processing, a noise gate or something? I hear something similar a couple of times with some of your laughs, but those are a bit easier to clean up, I think.
3:17 Added word. Text reads(p. 57), "She bolted before we got back." I hear, "She bolted long before we got back." I'm not sure how crucial this is, but that extra word seems to change the timeline somehow.

Act 4:
2:07 Again a phrase sounds barely cut off at the end: "...to do me the honour to be my wife."

All PL ok now, great job! :clap: Don't worry, camouflaged lines trip all of us up from time to time. :wink: Even DPLs. :shock: :lol:

Thank you, Jenn! You make quite a convincing sweet old lady! :wink: Now, which one are you again? :lol:

Act 1:
0:14 Two missing lines, p. 8: "You--you don't think..." and "may possibly be a little too..."
1:37 Two missing lines, p. 9: "Oh, Bennet!" and "You will remind Charles..."
2:35 Missing word (underlined). The sense is still the same, but it sounds just a bit "off" to me without that one word. P. 11: "Yes, she must be very clever to have obtained the position that she has."
6:22 This one I leave up to your discretion. The word "bath" here (p. 16) is used as a verb and should probably be pronounced "bathe." It makes more sense that way, anyway. :hmm: I don't know why it's not written that way, though. Is this an older spelling? Or was it pronounced differently then? I really don't know. In any case, you read what is printed... It's just that what is printed doesn't make sense to me. :lol: So, again, I leave this to your discretion.

Act 2, 3 and 4 PL ok!
