Hello Craig,

Welcome to LibriVox! Great to have you with us. :)

Thanks for the test. It's good, and meets our requirements. :thumbs:

For future recordings I recommend you to learn and apply noise reduction. There is some hum clearly audible in your track, likely the vibration from your hard drive (120 Hz). You can make it much less by simply sticking a piece of soft foam (open cell) under your mic, or a folder towel. Try it.

Since your other technical stuff is all good, you don't need to resubmit your test with noise reduced, but if you have any questions about it, do ask them, we'll be happy to help.

An admin will stop by to mark this thread with an OK, and you can already visit our "Readers Wanted" forums and join a group project or a couple.

Happy recording! :)
