I've been in the forum for quite a while but I've also been away for a very long time :( I also got a different mic set-up since then.
Since I forgot everything about recording in LibriVox, I wanted to check if I'm doing everything correctly.

I'm using audacity on windows with a usb mic. I've set up audacity as is instructed in the wiki page for one minute tests.


Thanks!

Hi Lucy, and welcome back! It's always nice to have someone come back after a break :D.

As far as tech specs go, they look great! The one thing that could use some work is your background noise. You have a decent amount of that. Do you remember how to do noise reduction, or would you like a walkthrough?

If you remember how to do it and feel confident, you have the ok to continue recording. If you need some help, just let me know and I will give you some steps :D

Thanks a lot!
I think I'm good with noise reduction. Thankfully, it's one of the only things I remember :P
I tried it just now and it seems to reduce the noise significantly.

Thank you :D
