And right as Craig finishes his roles, I have finished mine; all of Aaron's lines are now ready for PL. :) And if someone could PL my lines in 5.1 and 5.3, I'd appreciate it!

My goodness, what a piece of work that guy is! I can't remember the last time I played someone so abjectly evil. But was it fun? Of course. :lol:

sorry, I missed this one, Craig. Only a pronunciation error in Martius:

> at 0:09: Not I, till Mutius’ bones be buried. - you say "Myoo-tee-us" instead of "Myoo-shous"
> at 0:17: No man shed tears for noble Mutius – also here

And now I realize, Titus was supposed to read the ALL line as well, but you forgot. Could you insert it with your angry Titus voice as well at about 10:06 in your titus_1_1 file please ? "No man shed tears for noble Mutius; He lives in fame that died in virtue’s cause."

Sorry for the oversight :?

Thanks

I checked both Aaron files and indeed, he is quite the unrepentant villain :shock:

Aaron 5_3 is PL ok.

One note for 5_1

> at 3:49: "beheld his tears" – I hear "chars" :hmm: could you check please ?

both files are a bit under 86 dB, but that will get adjusted anyway

thanks

thank you, Craig, Titus now definitely PL ok.

With Martius you only corrected one spot, and forgot the first:

> at 0:09: Not I, till Mutius’ bones be buried.

Thanks, Sonia! So, after listening back, I do know that I said "tears," but the accent I adopted for the character may have made it a bit unclear. If you think it's too unclear and the meaning is lost or hard to decipher, I could re-record that bit (the caveat being that I'm away from my microphone until the first week of May, so it's going to take a while to do it). Do let me know what you think!

I noticed the accent for this character and indeed some other words were hard to understand as well but I always thought, reading the text, that you meant the original word, giving you the benefit of the doubt in a few instances. This one here I really didn't understand as tears though. Maybe we could have another pair of ears listen to it. :hmm: What do the others think ?

I think it's probably worth making a little clearer.

Good news! I was able to get back to my microphone earlier than expected, so I re-did that small line in Aaron 5.1 and hopefully "tears" sounds clearer now.
