Re: One Minute Test

Hi Your test passed with warnings. This was because it was just under the minimum level required. Otherwise all was excellent. You can adjust the level by going to "effects" "amplify" in Audacity and just bump the signal up by the required amount - in this case by say +2 or 3 dB Just make sure your ...

Re: One Minute Test

welcome! But unfortunately you recorded at the wrong bit rate. It must be 128kb constant bit rate and not variable. Also your level is way down - it should be at 86-89 dB - yours is 83.1. you need to increase the gain (amplify) in Audacity - by about + 6dB You also need to try and change the DC bias...

Re: One minute test

Hi mmartell Good recording - excellent voice. The recording was fine except a little high at 92dB The DC bias was at +2 You can in audacity reduce the level by 2dB - using "Amplify" and put in a figure of -2dB Also in audacity go to "normalise" and just tick the box for correcting DC bias to zero, a...

Sorry - I seem to have duplicated an answer to this test - I think we must have reacted at about the same time. I will let you continue.

Re: 1 minute test

The reading is fine but it is a stereo file so you need to convert it to mono. It is also a little too high gain at 90.9dB so you need to bring it down by 2 dB (-2dB).

If you could correct those things and re-submit it will be fine. If you need further help just ask.

Listeners for one minute test

I may have previously posted this in the wrong place, but are listeners needed for the one minute test, to check and pass these with comments?
