This is my 1 minute test. I used Audacity on a Mac and a usb microphone.

Thank you for all feedback.

Nice work. All settings are ok, just a few pointers. Your volume is right at the edge at 86.1 dbs, we need 86-92 with 89 being preferred. I would recommend downloading the Checker program to help you see that. It's fine for now as it is still in the limits. If you listen, particularly with headphones, you can hear a bit of static. This can be reduced a bit by:
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.

If you feel like you know how to use this, you have the OK to record. If you want an opinion after you do it please re upload, post in this thread, and I'll take another look.
