Re: 1-Minute-Test

All of the settings are correct on this one, but the volume is slightly too low. I dont know how to help you with fixing that on a phone, but its 85dB and we aim for 86-92dB, with 89dB being the goal. If you know that you're getting a laptop in a couple of months, you might be best to wait (i know, ...

Re: 1 Minute Test

The volume on this one is a tiny bit too high at 93.6dB You can upload another test if you like, but i find that its a little pointless as you could by fluke get the correct volume here, and then not when you upload to a project. Volume is something you will know by eye after a while. You clearly we...

Re: test 1 mn

Welcome to librivox :D All tech specs are correct and you're sounding great. However, the volume is a little low. Its 85dB and we aim for 86 - 92, with 89 being the goal. You will want to turn up recording volume and maybe amplify the recording. If you like, you can use the checker tool to verify vo...

Re: I Minute Test - please listen

Welcome to librivox :D You're sounding great, but there are two tech specs that you will need to correct. You didn't say which DAW you are using, but I will give instructions for audacity as that is what most people use. the bit rate should be 128 kbps. When you export your file, change 'quality' to...

Re: one minute test

Hi Clara, welcome to librivox :D All of your tech specs are correct. You can start recording for projects if you like. however, you do have some background noise which could be lessened using noise removal. I'm assuming you're using audacity? https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Noise_Cleaning If you...
