Hi there, welcome. You have a great voice to contribute to our community here, and pretty great quality for built in speakers. First let's solve a little issue, which is the bit rate.

Currently yours is now at 63 variable, we need 128 constant. To fix this:

1.Go to export it (menu items file>export)
2. Select Export as MP3
3. Look under the Format Options section
4.Where it says 'Bit Rate Mode', select 'Constant'
5. In the 'Quality' drop down menu select 128 kbps.

Please do this, re upload, post in this same thread, and I'll take another listen :mrgreen:. Almost there!
