Elizabby is in the process of creating a reader file for me. Just the same, I thought I could contribute to your Microphone Showdown 3. Which section number should I use?

Hello Algy,

I've got a new rig, could I contribute please? Should it be raw or am I supposed to noise-clean the recording?

Thanks!

Thank you

Section 24 is yours.

Recordings should be raw - no compression and no noise cleaning.

Two delightful readings - both PL OK.

Thanks Kristin

I have always been a fan of the Perception 120 USB, and it suits your voice beautifully.

There is a slight stumble at the start of the recording that you might like to remove. Otherwise good.
