Hi, could I get some feedback on this recording? First half is raw, unadulterated. Second half is identical, except for application of de-mud EQ, noise redux, compression, and normalization.

Recording software: Audacity
Operating system: Windows 10
Mic type: XLR (Rode Procaster) through E-MU 0404 USB

I've been told my recording space is reverberant. It's not treated.

For what is worth from a non-expert, listening on a laptop with low priced external speakers, they both sounded good to me.

Both are fine. The first half you would have to amplify just a tiny little bit but I guess you can deal with that :)
PL OK; Go have fun recording.

I had more reverberant recordings lately :) It is really not that bad. It might perhaps be a problem for some audio book selling companies, I don't know. For LibriVox it really is fine, don't worry.
