Wow - sounds great!

Volume is on the high side of OK. It's OK; just don't go much louder. :)

The only issue is your sample rate. The project rate is 48,000 Hz; it needs to be 44,100. Go to Edit/Preferences. Under Quality, set the default sample rate to 44,100.

Please upload another quick test after making this change, just so we can double check it's right.
