Welcome!

It sounds good! All the tech settings are correct. Volume is great. No background noise.

You have a couple plosives. This is when your breath directly hits the microphone on letters like P, F, or TH. (I hear it on "the piper" at 0:10, "previously" at 0:24 and "probably" at 0:26.) Move your microphone a little bit to the side of your mouth if a desktop mic, or a little above or below your mouth if a headset mic. This will help the air pass by the mic instead of directly hitting it.

Your volume is great, so don't worry about losing volume when you move the mic.

If you're comfortable with doing this and don't think you need confirmation on the new mic placement, then you're all set. If you want one final check, then go ahead and record a new test and post the link in this thread. Let me know either way. ;)
