I'm not Lynnet, but I hope you don't mind some feedback from a stranger. :wink:

You have a couple of settings to fix, but it only takes a few clicks of a mouse and you should be set. Specifically, you need to fix your bit rate. Here's how:

Go to File>Export Audio in Audacity. So far, this should sound familiar, but this time, before you click Save, take a good look at your settings. They should be as follows:

Bit Rate Mode: Constant
Quality: 128 kbps
Channel Mode: Joint Stereo

Then click save and re-upload. Post your new test in this thread for a final check.

The only other thing I would caution you on is plosives. This is when a puff of air goes straight into your mic, causing a windy crackly noise. You can hear it in your test at about 0:15 seconds, right in the middle of "the panic consumed me". That was the only one that I heard, and it's pretty easy to avoid by moving your mic out of the immediate area right in front of your mouth.

Sorry it took so long for someone to revisit this. :?

Tech settings are A-OK now. You're cleared for recording!
