Hello,

https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/test_ieatbroccoli.mp3

This is the link to my test recording. I am using a Yeti USB microphone and Audacity 2.1.3.

I am looking forward to start recording with you all!

Welcome, ieatbroccoli! I do, too - but I don't advertise the fact quite so boldly. :lol:

Tech settings, volume, etc. are all A-OK. The only issue is the background noise. It's cleaned up nicely with noise reduction, though.

Here are a couple resources:
text instructions: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Noisecleaning_With_Pics
video, but with an older version of Audacity so the settings are different: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VFSg9o37HMw

My settings are as follows:
Noise reduction: 10-16 (I suggest about 14 for you)
Sensitivity: 6
Frequency Smoothing: 6

Try this out, and see what you think. Then post another test. Use the same file name as your previous one, and post in this same thread when it's ready. :)
