Nogrod, I emailed you six of the eight audio files...but the final two were apparently too big. I have an Xanga account, so perhaps I'll post those bigger files on it later.

Got them six. I'm not sure if one can dowwnload things from xanga sites - maybe one can, I just don't know.

But you have an alternative solution as well. Turn them into mp3 files and you can probably send them nicely. I think it's something like 10mb or something that the e-mail servers will take in one sending and on mp3 you'll get a lot of stuff in 10mb...

Well I think the two files were the longer sample narrations I did (though I'm not postive)...so they're not terribly important. But I can convert them to mp3 and send them to you this weekend.

It definitely has been awhile! I will try to get my hands on a good microphone...I don't know if I recorded all my parts yet but I will look that over later next week...busy school time! Anyway, good to see we haven't forgotten about this

Indeed, another one should be planned, I purposed a hobbit's only adaption, which would, besides the hobbits, leave only about 3 other roles available in the scene I picked. But we can decide for a different one with a larger cast, if you all wish. We should discuss this as well!

It would be great if you found one! I really like your acting but the quality of the recordings have been pretty bad.

We will probably have time to make our last parts the next week as well so possibly in two-three weeks (depending on how much I need to edit the music-stuff & how toilsome the final construction work wil be we may have a done thing in our hands!

I have found, Matthew, that getting a new recording program made all the difference that changing microphones did not. I don't know what kind of software you are using, so that might not be the issue at all, but I thought I'd mention it nonetheless.

As we don't like advertising in this forum but would like to make things happen the best way possible wouldn't you mind PM'ing Matthew for details Gwath?

If he's interested, he can ask. It can be had for free on the internet, and so I would hardly call it "advertising."

Ok, look up Audacity on the internet. Oddwen actually suggested it a couple of months ago, and I've found that it works pretty well. Like I said, the problem may indeed be your microphone, and this might not help at all - but it made all the difference for me. I don't even have to use a peripheral microphone.

We should make an effort to finish this project. What needs to be done at this point? Has everyone recorded their parts?

What needs to be done is just a few lines from the hobbits Lommy and Greenie have said they will make... and one or two evenings of free time for me to actually sit down and to gather it all together (well, free evenings look like a luxury to me but there will be one or two before the summer... there has to be).

Good that you Gwath remided me of this!

We'll make it to be sure, soonish I'd say. There's not too much to do anymore.

Just wait a week or two - or three - and we'll get it done... I hope.

I didn't realize we were so close! If there's anything I can to do help, like recording lines if L and G don't have time, just give me a holler.

In fact, if we're just waiting on some lines being recorded, I could probably get my sisters to help me with that.

I'm on a summer vacation right now and have time to do things...

I'll have a few things to do which are more pressing than this but I think I could check the situation during the next week. I'll report the situation soonish. I think we don't need much...

Hey, that's great to hear, Nogrod. I look forward to it!

Hakon, I'm sure we could find something for you to - or if not in this project, in the next one. Nogrod has been keeping track of which parts remain to be recorded, so we'll see what he says.

If you want to get this done quick and I'm the only one whose part (Merry) is unrecorded, I'm glad to give my part up and let Hakon do it if it means this will be ready quicker - I'm leaving for InterRail tomorrow and I have no chance before doing my stuff before early August.

I think we also need Pip... Well oneliners for both of them... I'll check them tomorrow - or the day after that.

Hold your horses!

I personally would love to do Pippin.

Perhaps we should re-think some roles?

I was originally Boromir, but my voice is too youthful, I would think, for such a role. I would much rather be Pippin!

I actually talked about this today with Lommy...

I have more or less easier time during April/May so I could try to hunt the files and bring it all together (I actually tried it one time like half a year ago but ran into some difficulties as I haven't kept any systematic log on the files so it takes some time to find the "chosen ones" )

But yes, let there be a possibility that comes true!
