Hi Bhavya,
I will make a not that 8 is yours once your test is approved.
There are three issues that need to be resolved.
1. The bitrate must be 128kb.
2. It must be in Mono.
3. The volume is too quiet. The target is 89db. It must be close to that.
Here is the guide to recording which will help.

There is also a wonderful bunch of videos on how to do most everything generously created by the dedicated Phil Chenevert:

Please take a look at these and submit a new test.
Good luck.
Amy

Hi Pinchcliff,
I don't believe I have achieved groovy yet today, but I am working on it. :wink:
I will listen now and get right back to you.

Update: It is a wonderful reading, Pinchliff. One change is needed.
The recording is in Stereo. It must be in Mono. Please change it to Mono and reupload.

Thanks!
Amy

Lol, just a little more groovy every day ;)

Ah, sorry about that, seems all my presets got messed up after computer update, and didn't spot that one :/ I've reexported with force to mono selected, and replaced the file :)

Let me know if ok :)

Sorry for not getting back to you, Pinchcliff. There must have been something wrong with my notifications on this topic.
