Welcome!

It sounds good! You just have a couple technical things to fix. Unfortunately, I don't know Reaper, so I can't tell you how to fix them.

1. Your volume is actually a little too loud. :) If you could lower it by about 3 dB, it would be about perfect.

2. The recording is in stereo rather than mono.

That's it! Try making these adjustments, then post another test. Use the same file name as your previous one, and post in this same thread when it's ready. :)

Thanks for the feedback.
Hopefully, this new one is correct!
(the sound should be down by 3db)
