If you are new to LibriVox recordings, please first have a look at our Newbie Guide for Soloists.

Here is a video that gives an overview of the process DOING YOUR FIRST SOLO: Some Tips and Suggestions

When you are ready to launch your first solo, click this link to The New Project Template Generator. See Tips for Using the New Project Template Generator or this video Launching a New Project at LibriVox for help entering all the required information.

Post the template in the forum

Step 1:

Step 2:

  • Enter a subject: Type "SOLO Title by Author" (e.g."SOLO Hard Times by Charles Dickens"). For non-English books, please add the language, e.g. "SOLO [FRENCH] Les liaisons dangereuses de P.C. de Laclos"
  • Copy the template that was generated from the New Project Template Generator and paste it into the edit box:

  • Please now read through your finished post, and take note of the instructions in it. You can use them throughout recording to make sure you fulfill all requirements for LibriVox files before you submit them.

Step 4:

  • Check your thread for replies every day.
  • Sometimes it takes a couple of days for an MC to pick up a new project (projects are not picked chronologically, but depending on MC availability), so please be patient.
  • You may already start recording. If you have never recorded a solo project before, it's best to check that your meta data (example file name & tags) are all right - just contact any member of the LibriVox admin team via PM (private message) and you should get an answer straight away.
