Producing Latin Audio

Postby metrodorus » Mon Nov 30, 2009 6:56 pm

I have found maintaining the Latinum podcast hard going lately, and have been looking for ways to cheaply bulk-upload and distribute the Latin audio I have been producing.
I have been very unhappy with the CD service provided by LULU and by Amazon's Createspace - they took ages to use, the sites kept crashing, and worst of all - the charges were just way too high - both for the product, and the postage they were charging.

http://kunaki.com/MSales.asp?PublisherId=121841 is the new company I have found a company that lets me produce CD's and DVD's at a price even a schoolpupil can afford - $2 - and postage in the USA is very low, and international standard airmail is reasonable. ($4). The entire process of uploading and creating the CD's is automated.

I have so far put online my Corderius CD, which contains 50 odd colloquia, recorded in Latin-English-Latin for each line of dialogue, and then two variant version in Latin only (Alexander's edition, and Willymott's Edition) which tweak the original material slightly. This data CD also contains the pdf's I used and also the pdf of the exhaustive opera omnia version (Madrid edition)

I will be adding more material to this store - it takes a few hours to process one item.

I am currently recording Caesar's Commentaries on the Gallic war in a literalised English version - useful for a student to listen to,while holding the Latin text in front of them. Currently I have read aloud and recorded up to Book 3.
I run various Latin sites, including Schola and the Latinum YouTube channel - the main portal to these is http://latinum.org.uk

These look interesting and affordable. Would it be possible to include brief audio samples on the website? For example, I'd like to get a sense of the style of "De America."
