Hi Joseph

Your audio meets all the requirements, except it is a little too loud. LV requires audio between 86db and 92db, preferably 89-90. Yours is 93.3.

If you process your audio the same way and the normalize to about -6 it should be right. Yours appears to normalized to -4.

You can pre-check your audio yourself by downloading the free Checker app: https://cgjennings.ca/projects/checker/

Please make a new test recording with the same file name and post it in a reply to this message. I will come back and review it for you.

Thank you for your feedback.
If everything worked, this second recording should be within parameters.
