Hi mmartell

Good recording - excellent voice.

The recording was fine except a little high at 92dB

The DC bias was at +2

You can in audacity reduce the level by 2dB - using "Amplify" and put in a figure of -2dB

Also in audacity go to "normalise" and just tick the box for correcting DC bias to zero, and untick the normalise box.

Then your test will be perfect once re-submitted.

Hope this helps.

Well done and welcome by the way!

Peter

Hooray!
Thank you for the words of encouragement!
I have booked a chapter of "Woodcroft Boys at Sunset Island".
