Wow guys really blew your ears off with that last one. Sorry, I chose the wrong file. Here we go again.

Hi there

My first impressions are this:

- you've successfully removed any background or environmental noise. Good work.

- the recording sounds sightly buzzy to my ears. I'm not sure if this is from too much noise reduction (using the Audacity tool) or perhaps not too high of gain (when recording) or just the sound equipment.

Just checking in to say I agree with the first statement, no noise, yay! As for the buzzing, I don't hear it but JSmolders (who most likely has more audio experience) may have. Luckily, that does not prevent you from recording here, so you have the OK to record.

thank you both very much. I'll re-listen to the track again and see if I can discern the buzz and eliminate it if I can. Thanks
