Hi Stacy welcome to the forum :)

thank you for your test, I just had a listen and your reading is really very nice to listen to. You have an agreeable voice and are well-paced, so it's easy to understand.

Concerning the technical settings, there is only one thing that is not up to LV standard and that is the bitrate which should be 128 kbps.

You change the settings at the export to mp3 level. Please reupload this test in this thread, by doing the following:

> go to File / Export Audio
> open Options in the lower right corner
> select the following settings: Bit Rate Mode: Constant / Quality: 128 kbps
> press Ok

Thank you, you're almost ready to go :thumbs:

Hello,

These properties came up when I tested your audio sample in Adobe.
EDITED by admin

The one minute test is designed to check that newbies have their technical settings correct before they record a live recording which can not be used and is not in any way an audition , you are providing more information than is needed and using software which is not free whose results do not match those of the recommended software.

this test has already been given the ok almost one month ago, no need to give any additional feedback here. Also your level of technical advice is much exceeding our criteria, and may only result in discouraging new readers. Please take this into consideration.
