How to download

So far as I can work out, we can either play Legamus files on our computers or download a whole book as a zip file and then open it. Is there a way to download chapters/sections rather than a whole book so that they can be listened to on a MP3 player? The book I recorded is nearly 27 hours long whic...

Re: Book of Common Prayer and KJV

It's not PD in the United Kingdom but is PD in the rest of Europe.

Book of Common Prayer and KJV

The King James translation of the Bible (also known as the KJV, the Authorised Version or the AV), and the Book of Common Prayer, are under Royal Prerogative in the United Kingdom. This is not technically the same as copyright but works in much the same way. It means that, while they are public doma...

Re: COMPLETE ENG [Solo] Within a Budding Grove by Proust - h

Thank you very much for all your hard work and I'm sorry that my volumes were so variable. I like the cover but can we change the text so it reads: Within a Budding Grove By Marcel Proust Read by Andrew Coleman ? Sorry to be conceited and want my name included but it's my first ever solo so it's spe...

Re: Eng[Solo] Within a Budding Grove by Proust - hok

I've just prooflistened to the 50.07 version of Section 5. I'm so glad I'm now using a "pop" shield, that old recording was full of pops that I'd not been able to edit out but, despite that, it seems PL OK to me.

...and I'm looking forward to hearing Virgil and Corvo, Martin. Thank you for all the proof-reading you've done for me. I reckon I owe you a madeleine cake! I don't know how the cover image is created. I was wondering about a Monet seascape/seashore scene. I've found The Boardwalk at Trouville on Wi...

Re: Eng[Solo] Within a Budding Grove by Proust - hok

I listened to Neville Jason's abridged recordings as they were released, about 20 years ago, and thought those two books were a dull slog, but I read those volumes (Penguin translation) soon after my ex-fiancee had died suddenly and a mutual friend had told me that my late ex had once made a pass at...

Re: Eng[Solo] Within a Budding Grove by Proust - hok

Hi Andrew, so Within a Budding Grove is your first ever solo recording? Wow! I had recorded substantial chunks of other books, including the Combray section of Swann's Way so I had some idea of what I was taking on, although I learnt some basic Audacity stuff I didn't know while I was recording thi...

Re: Eng[Solo] Within a Budding Grove by Proust - hok

Thank you for PLing, Martin. Hope the blooming Godalming girls didn't distract you too much from the blooming girls of Balbec! I keep looking on the train to see if there is a person who looks like your voice but all of my suspects get off or on at the wrong stops. Anyway, it's starting to feel as i...

Re: Eng[Solo] Within a Budding Grove by Proust - hok

Has ge.tt stopped operating? I can't get it to open and when I look for ge.tt related websites they are all listed as "Cached" which I think means that they no longer function.

I was given a microphone pop screen for my birthday. I haven't tried it yet but hope that it works and that after this section there will be fewer pops to deal with or ignore.

Re: Eng[Solo] Within a Budding Grove by Proust - hok

I'm still using the same equipment but there seem to be far more plosives than there used to be. I have tried to edit the worst out but there are still many left in. I'm just hoping they're not too obtrusive. The recording volume (before I amplify) also seems much quieter. It's frustrating when I ha...

Re: Happy new year!

A New Year means more writers we can record. I've checked on Wikipedia which writers have entered the public domain in 2014: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2014_in_public_domain#Writers. There are not a lot of names there I recognise but they might mean more to others. There are several notable female...

Re: Eng[Solo] Within a Budding Grove by Proust - hok

Just to let everybody know that I'm fine with tracks being re-uploaded to a server where we can actually get to them! Is it OK now from the server Viktor has connected to or would you like me to upload them to ge.tt? I'm happy to do whatever helps so long as I don't have a tight deadline.
