She plays in the background,
I live in the world.
We meet in the mirror and confront the harshness of the elements on my side,
immortal innocence on hers.

Hey there, nice work! Great voice! Before sending you off into the real world, let's work on that background noise by using a noise reduction feature. That is most likely what you noticed. What software do you use? If it is Audacity I can help you figure this out. If not, I may be able to point you in the right direction. If you get if figured out, please re upload and post in this thread so I can listen again!

I will send you the steps for noise reduction:
1. Select a small piece of your recording that is pure noise
2. Go into menu items Effect>Noise Reduction
3. In Section 2 on the screen, choose your settings. My settings are Noise Reduction: 12, Sensitivity: 6, Frequency: 0.
4. Select 'Get Noise Profile'.
5. Select your entire recording.
6. Go to menu items Effect>Repeat Noise Reduction.
7. Take a listen, you may find that you want to do this over again to reduce more noise.

Hope this works for you!

They can be amusing to play around with. Anyways, if you feel like the noise is gone and your voice still sounds nice and round, you have the OK to record. If you want a second opinion feel free to re upload.
