Now the volume is higher -- in fact it is a little bit on the loud side (92.9dB), so you can probably turn it down a little bit on the microphone
You can also make adjustments to the volume in Audacity (select the whole recording, click Effects > Amplify and amplify with a negative value, in this case amplifying by -3
or so should give you a good volume).
There is some background hum. If you are able to prevent it from getting in to the recording in the first place, that is always best (if you record on a laptop, let it run on batterier, turn off other things that might be running close to where you are recording). You can also reduce the background noise in Audacity (if that is what you use):
Select a few seconds of background noise only (no speech) and click Effect | Noise Reduction | Get Profile. Then select the whole recording (Ctrl+A), click Effect | Noise Reduction again, and use settings:
Noise Reduction: 10 dB
Frequency smoothing (bands) 6
and click OK.
Please tinker with this recording or make a new one to lower the volume a little bit and reduce the background hum. Save, upload, and post again in this thread. You are doing well!
