Prospective PLs, please see the Guide for Proof-listeners.

IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the number of languishing projects on our server, we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't recorded anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).

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!

Magic Window is in place, and you should have access!

We'll need a summary for the project, which you can write later, if you want, when you've read the book.

Also, a note for your future projects: When you fill in the template, in the Title field, only put the title of the book, not 'title by author' because it messes up the code. Thanks! :D
Have fun! Looks like an interesting read, full of action! :clap:

Hi Rap! how is it going!? :) yeah i like it more than the previous, i've been through rode nt1-a and shure sm58, finally im using now a shure beta 58-A. I like more the sound with the last one, but im still learning a lot, i think im gonna look forward for audacity plugins/software or ways, to help me reduce the background noise and extra noise of my mouth :D, anyway, thanks for asking :)
I've uploaded more chapters, i'll post whenever i upload more :)
