    Recording help from Russian-natives for a Russian teaching project

    Hey guys, I need a little help from Russian natives... I have this project in experient stages, Russian teaching via storytelling, and I could use 1 male and 1 female (or more) to record all the voices. The document is here:

    Dreaming in Russian1.pdf

    (Thanks to calabi for fixing my grammar)

    Every colour is a different voice. The black text of the storyteller is not for Russians I got that part covered.


    Red: Female voice #1
    Dark green: Female voice #2
    Blue: Male voice #1
    Purple: Male voice #2
    Light Green: Male voice #3

    Send the recording the please to shieldmaiden24 (at) gmail.com (you can even post it here if you'd like)

    You can announce first which voice you're planning to record so there won't be any duplicates.

    А теперь заткнись или я тебя закочу! = А теперь заткнись или я тебя прикончу!

    "Ты не любишь говорить, ха?" It's not coloured text but I'd say here: А ты неразговорчивая. I said to her.

    I think, "Давай...возьмём все драгоценностей и убираемся отсюда!" It'll be sound more like order if you write it like: Берём все драгоценности и убираемся от сюда! Всё остальное поджечь!


    "Мы сбежим до горах, потом разобьём лагерь." = Добежим до гор, и разобьём лагерь. or Мы сбежим в горы, и разобьём лагерь.


    "Далеко? Тогда добро пожаловать на северный земель!" = Из далека? Тогда добро пожаловать на северную землю!

    "Я Ралф, это Лера, а вот Крыс." = Я Ралф, это Лера, а это Крыс.


    "Все под укрыто!" = Все под укрытие!

    "Что это была? = Что это было?

    "Думать не думать... вот один." Думала, не думала ... вот один.

    "Надо их предопреждать," = Их надо предупредить.

    "Надо поспешить" it's Ok, but I think, "Надо спешить" will be better.

    Запад....Иди западу! = Запад.... Иди на запад!

    Excellent! I'll update the text forthwith! Just one misgiving

    "Ты не любишь говорить, ха?" It's not coloured text but I'd say here: А ты неразговорчивая. I said to her."
    He's supposed to have bad Russian, not necessarily grammatically wrong but very basic. I think a word like "неразговорчивая" is a little outside of his realm yet.

    Thank you very much

    EDIT: UPDATED THE DOCUMENT

    "Нас наступают" is not correct. It should be "на нас наступают", or better "нас атакуют".
    "Освободите мои руки" - it's better to say "освободите мне руки".
    "Я из делако - is it a typo?
    "Все под укрытие" - I would say "все в укрытие.
    "Это дракон, никакое сомнение" - should be "Это дракон, никаких сомнений"
    "Надо сбежать" -wrong, should be "надо бежать"
    "Слишком поздно, он нас видел" - it would be better to say "он нас увидел"
    On the last page You extensively use the word "надо". It will be better if you diversify these phrases somehow. For example, you can say "будем сражаться".

    Thanks! Updated text
    "Освободите мои руки" - it's better to say "освободите мне руки".
    True, but the idea here is that the person speaking is not a native speaker, so it's ok for him not to speak perfectly (yet!).

    I summed up the text that needs recording to make it easier. Could use help with the following...you can pick any character. You can even do two different voices if you can. Would appreciate anyone who's willing to volunteer for recording

    Female 1 (bandit)

    “Заткнись!”
    “Молчи уже!”
    "Потому, что мы так решили. А теперь заткнись или я тебя прикончу!"
    "Не твоё дело,"
    "Я сказала молчи уже, или...!"

    Male 1 (bandit)

    "Нас атакуют!"
    "Защишать лагерь!"

    Male 2 (Bandit)

    "На помощь!"

    Male 3 (Captain)

    "Вот еще один! Убей его!"
    "Что он говорит?"
    "Ладно, освободи его,"
    “Давай… Берём все драгоценности и убираемся от сюда! Всё остальное поджечь!”
    “Мы сбежим в горы, и разобьём лагерь.”
    "Еще нет,"
    "Потому, что он может быть опасным."
    "Ты откуда?"
    “Из далека? Тогда добро пожаловать на северную землю!”
    "Как тебя зовут?"
    "Я Ралф, это Лера, а это Крыс."
    "Да приятно...ладно, Лера, освободи его,"
    "Все в укрытие"
    "Ты что, слепая? Это дракон, никаких сомнений"
    "Думала не думала... вот один. Надо бежать."
    "Ближайщий город. Их надо предупредить,"

    Female 2 (Fighter)

    "По-моему он утверждает , что он заключенный и не один из них,"
    "Разрезать веревку?"
    "Почему?"
    "Что это было
    "А я думала они давно все умерли..."
    "Да, не будем терять времени."
    "Слишком поздно, он нас увидел."
    "Форт Хенселт... Запад.... Иди на запад!”


    Male 4 (Warrior)

    "Надо спешить,"
    "Он вернулся! Бегите!"

    Валдочка, выбери, какая запись тебе подходит. Если подходит и нужно медленнее, я перезапишу.

    That's great Lampada! I'll use it. Downloaded it as an mp3

    BTW the first link you provided doesn't work from some reason...

    Anyway... excellent If I could get a volunteer to record the male speaker native Russian lines (male 1, male 2 and/or male 3) it'd be also great

    I'll work on it tomorrow with the editor software...it's 23:30 in Israel and am getting weary

    When I have all the recordings I'll post the final work here and on youtube

    I tried recording today, but it was a hectic couple of days and my voice sounds like crap when I'm tired. Still looking for help with the Russian male lines. Anyone?

    I'll try tomorrow, should have more time.

    OK, I finished it by doing "almost" all the voices myself (having to lower my pitch through the software since I wanted more of a male voice) -- except from the audio recordings Lampada provided which I've added

    https://soundcloud.com/valda25/dream-part-1

    Yea I know my pronunciation lacks -- feel free to correct me by recording yourself saying whatever it is I mispronunced then I might actually use that audio in the editing software

    The final version should have subtitles added to it and more sound effects and maybe even music. And yea... more native speakers

    Great work! Well, I could just record lines of whatever male character you see speaking with my low deep voice.

    By the way, is the narrator voice is really yours? It can't be, can it?

    Also, is it inspired by Skyrim?

    That'd be great

    If you scroll a bit up you'll see all the lines that needs to be recorded are neatly ordered for anyone to have a go at it. I say do your voice to all the male voices (you can do a slightly different voice to each character) and put it on soundcloud and I'll edit the main file to put them in ASAP

    By the way, is the narrator voice is really yours? It can't be, can it?
    It's my recording but the voice is altered to be lowered in pitch.


    Also, is it inspired by Skyrim?
    Yes, the first dream is and it'll probably continue this way for a while. It is in fact inspired by whatever TV show or computer game the dreamer was watching before going to sleep.

    >>>I say do your voice to all the male voices (you can do a slightly different voice to each character)

    I''ll do when I finally hit home later today! (Well, sorry but I'm not great at making different voices )

    >>>It's my recording but the voice is altered to be lowered in pitch.

    That is what really delighted me. The voice really sounds as if a male has said all that stuff. Those sound editors are amazing, aren't they?

    Well, I guess everything is already recorded? So I don't need to record anything?

    Tell me if I'm wrong because I'm kind of lost in all of those recordings that have been sent while I were on my way home
