Thanks, Mike! This play is too fun to resist -- I had to be a part of it! (I'm practicing my tough-guy voice :D ).

Thanks for volunteering! I see you're new to the forum. Before you sign up for this project, can you first submit the "1-Minute Test" to make sure technical settings are correct, etc. The directions are here http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/1-Minute_Test. Then I'll be happy to have you be part of the project!

Mike
Here's the URL to my test file.

Great! The place to post your test file is in the Listeners & Editors Wanted section, where you'll get feedback about your recording. I can tell you, though, that you'll need to set your recording software to use a constant bit rate of 128 kbps, and adjust the volume level so that it's between 86-92 dB, as it's now a little too high.

Mike
Roger that. I've posted it, and will make those tweaks. I hope to have it up tomorrow.

Thanks for the help. I've posted my 1-minute test (https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/test_christopherfoeckler.mp3)

If that's all good, and if it's still available, could I read for Jiggs Kennedy (Act 2)?

Jiggs is yours. Since this is your first recording, how do you want your name to appear in the LibriVox catalog?

Hello Joanna,
Mrs. Quimby is PL Okay for Acts 1 and 2. Great job!

Thank you,

I've recorded my sections for Elijah Quimby. I'll be happy to make any changes that are needed, I'm new to dramatic readings so I am not sure if it's right.

Hi Zach,
Your recordings sound good--Act 2 is PL okay for Mr. Quimby. For Act 1 at 2:53, please omit the repetition of the phrase "Sounds like them.....don't it?"

Thanks,
Lora

Lora, I'm sorry I missed that repeat. I have removed it and uploaded the edited file for Act 1. Thank you for PLing, I have heard that it is a lot of work on a dramatic project.

No problem, Zach-thanks for making the fix. That act is PL Okay now. The PL work does take some time but I do enjoy it! :)

Oh, how about I read for Jim Cargan, the crooked mayor of Reuton?
Nothin' like being a crooked politician these days. :lol:
