Hi, new here. Software used was audacity with Audiotechnica ATR2500 USB microphone. Please evaluate and provide me with tips :). Thank you in advance. Oh, and yes, recording isn't really one minute, hahah.

Welcome!

Sounds good!

You've got a fair amount of noise in the lower frequencies. Usually for noise we suggest the noise reduction effect, but in your case, I think the High Pass Filter works better.

Select your entire recording, then go to Effects / High Pass Filter. Set it for 200 Hz threshold and 12 dB rolloff.

This will allow high frequencies to pass and will filter the sounds starting at 200 Hz and getting stronger as it goes lower.

Try it and see if you notice a difference. Then upload the result. Use the same file name as your previous one, and post in this same thread when it's ready. :)

(And yeah, the 1-minute test is a bit of a misnomer.) ;)
