Re: One minute test!

Hi Ms. 1326 Everything is correct except the volume, which is too low at 81.4db. The range is 86-92, preferably 89-90. If you have a gain control on your mic, adjust it so your raw recording has wave forms that peak at about the 0.5 marks in the Audacity window. Make sure the recording level in the ...

Re: 1Min Test SanarikMoirangthem

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 101kbps variable bit rate and too loud at 94.7db. There is also too much background noise by about...

Your audio is 144kbps, stereo, and just barely loud enough at exactly 86db. If you have a gain control ...

Re: one minute test

Hi Thom It's all correct, except it is 192kbps, not 128. When exporting your MP3 from Audacity, be sure to check Bit Rate Mode - Constant, then select 128kb from the pull-down menu, and check Force Export to Mono. Also, your audio volume passes, but just barely at 91.9db. Shoot for 89 to be on the s...

Re: Test - Aligator

Hi Al Sounds good and meets all the specs. You are good-to-go. Just one note, though: While your audio meets all the LV requirements, there is a clip 16 seconds, that is the audio wave form exceeds the limit of the recording window, which causes audio distortion. I suggest reducing your recording vo...

Re: 1Minute test

It's all good, except a bit too much background noise. Needs to be reduced about -10db. First, try to isolate your mic from the noise, such as computer fan. If that isn’t entirely successful, use Audacity’s Noise Removal filter to reduce the background noise about 10db. A video tutorial on Audacity ...
