Hello!
This is my 1 minute (actually 24 second) test.
I recorded this using a USB Blue Yeti microphone on Audacity with Windows.
I'm very excited to begin recording in earnest!

hi and welcome to librivox!

i have checked your test and it sounds great! your sound is clear and your volume is good, and your voice comes through nicely!

i have a little thing that does need your attention. we need our recordings in a specific format, 128kbps mono. your recording is at ~162 kbps (variable) 44.100 Hz Stereo (Joint). but this is easy to fix! instead of explaining how to set this, i will link to an article in our wiki: https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=Audacity_1-2-3 which also explains the way to set this properly in the newest version of audacity which i dont use yet :)

have a look at the article, review your settings and post your test again! if you have any questions, just ask and we will walk you through it :) thank you!

This is my second 1 minute test upload, using Audacity and a USB Blue Yeti microphone on Windows to record. This time it's in 128 kbps mono instead of the funky setup I was using before.
