Hi all!

So happy to get going here.

I used a RØDE NT-USB mic, GarageBand and a Mac.

Hi there! I absolutely adore your voice! So pretty, smooth, and perfect for narration! Lets get some problems fixed so you can begin recording!
  • The first issue is that your bit rate is at 192 kbps, we need it at 128
  • Next, your recording is in stereo sound, we need it in mono
  • Your volume is slightly loud at 94 dbs, we need it 86-92 with 89 being preferred
  • Finally, you have quite a bit of background noise which may benefit from some cleaning
Unfortunately, I have been sucked into the world of Audacity and do not know too much about Garage Band. Here are a few links that may help you figure this stuff out: viewtopic.php?f=23&t=73008&hilit=garage+band and Once you can get this figured out, please re upload, post in this same thread, and I'll take another listen. Please ask if you have any questions :D
