Re: 1-minute test

Hi Marc I reviewed your test sample and some changes are needed. LibriVox requires audio that is 128kbps constant bit rate, 44.1kHz sample rate, mono, and between 86db and 92db, preferably 89-90. Your audio is 194kbps variable bit rate, 48kHz sample rate and in stereo. Before you start recording, be...

Re: 1-minute test

Hi Dan Your final version meets all our requirements, so I'll approve it so you are good-to-go. However, I can see from your original raw recording that your initial recording volume is just way too low. You shouldn't have to amplify 11db just to meet the bare volume minimum. As a result, your compr...

Re: 1 Minute Test - danna535

The warning is that is too loud at 92.8. Shoot for 89. There is no need to use MP3 Gain, just use Amplify to fine-tune the volume. -2 or -3db would do it. You have a bit too much background noise. It needs to come down 5 - 10db. First, try to isolate your mic from the noise, such as computer fan. If...

Re: 1 Minute Test

Okay, the specs are correct now, but you still have excessive background noise. It needs to come down by 10db. Have you tried Noise Removal?

A video tutorial on Audacity noise removal is available here: https://youtu.be/rvhqw7zBmEo
