Hi everyone
Here is a link to my mic test. https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/test2_whitepanther.mp3 . I hope this is the right way to go about getting someone to listen :shock:
Thanks very much

Perfect. :)

Your recording is almost at point, too. Only the volume is too low; we need 89 dB within a range of 86 to 92 dB.
You can check volume with ReplayGain or with a little program called checker; see last line of my signature.

When you amplify there is a noticeable amount of noise; it doesn't sound too bad but you might want to apply a light brush of noise reduction:

Can you please edit the file, upload it again and post the link to the edited file here again? Thank you :)

PS: besides reading you can really help out with also listening to files als PL: https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=Guide_for_Proof-listeners

Thank You Moniaqua. I will try to fix the problems and resubmit. Also will take your suggestion to help out as a listener in the meantime. Thanks for the suggestions and the help.
