1-minute test - BensonBot

Hiyo!

Here's a link to my one-minute test:
https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/test_bensonbot.mp3

I am on a Mac (although I may use a PC later, in which case I'll do another one-minute test); I'm using Audacity (most recent version); and my mic is a Yeti Nano (plugs in via USB).

Thank you!

- Eric

Hi, all, After toying with the idea for a while, I’d like to start recording. I’m a big listener to LibriVox, and I’m excited to be a part of it! I’m going to pick up a headset/mic combo to do so with; would anyone have recommendations? I’d like something good, in case I want to use it for other voi...
