Good afternoon

Please see link to my raw 1 minute test. I am using a MacBook Pro, Audacity and a Scarlett 2i2 Studio setup.

Thanks in advance for your feedback. :D

Kind regards

Nina

Welcome!

Sounds great! 8-) All the settings are A-OK.

You're good to go as-is, or you could do some light noise removal to reduce the background noise a bit. Here are a couple resources:
text instructions: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Noisecleaning_With_Pics
video, but with an older version of Audacity so the settings are different: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VFSg9o37HMw

My settings are as follows:
Noise reduction: 10-16 (I suggest about 10 for you)
Sensitivity: 6
Frequency Smoothing: 6

Try it and see if you notice the difference, then post your results here. Or if you prefer to not use noise reduction, let me know and I'll mark this off as OK as it is. :)
