hi,

welcome to our forum!

i really liked your recording!

:!: and, honestly, i was astonished - but according to our checker app, it needs a little bit of amplifying.
we aim at 89 db metered average volume, +- 3 db. your recording has 85db, according to checker.
(i used the plugin replaygain, too: the same result, it suggests to amplify for 4,8db)

:!: also, with 65 db, checker meters a lot of background noise, which i didnt hear.
sometimes, this gets disturbing, after you have amplyfied your recording.

other pl aspects:
:!: when opening your recording in audacity, i see, that you kept our rule für starting silence (perfect between 0,5 - 1 seconds), but didn't add the ending silence of 5 seconds.

since your setup is quite professional, i dont write my (most often too long to read :-) ) tutorials.
also, these points can be corrected rather fast and uncomplicated.
but please: if you need any help, please dont hesitate to ask!

so, after correcting these points, please upload your recording again.
:D

morning,

perfect shot!
nice to listen to, checker and pl are ok, - i want to hear more of you!
an admin will stop by and add the [ok] to the title, eventually.

please, claim an open section and start to contribute: most people prefer to read something short, like a short story or poem - but please, choose something to your liking!.

i wish you a nice weekend!

Hello,

These properties came up when I tested your 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.

Anne😊
