Hello friends,

I recently joined the Librivox forums. Here is the link to my 1-minute test: https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/test_sirclerihew.mp3

I am currently using:
Recording program: Audacity
OS: Max OS X 10.13.2
Microphone: USB (Blue Snowball)

Hope to see you all around,
Nicholas

Sounds good!

Technical stuff is OK, except that the bit rate is variable; it needs to be 128 constant. This is set when you export to MP3. When you go to export, on the screen where you enter the file name for the MP3, change the Bit Rate mode to Constant, and the quality should be 128 kbps. You should only have to set it once; it'll remember the setting until you change it again.

Try making this change, then post another test. (It can be the same audio.) Use the same file name as your previous one, and post in this same thread when it's ready. :)

Thanks for catching that!

I exported my recording again with a constant 128-bit rate and re-uploaded the mp3 file. The same link up above should reflect the change now. Let me know if the new file shows up as so!
