I was instructed to create a test recording and submit it for feedback here.

Here it is.

Thanks for doing that. :)

Volume and such are great! The only issue is the bit rate.

Bit rate is variable; it needs to be 128 constant. This is set when you export to MP3. When you go to export, on the screen where you enter the file name for the MP3, change the Bit Rate mode to Constant, and the quality should be 128 kbps. You should only have to set it once; it'll remember the setting until you change it again.

Please do this, then upload the test again for a final check. Post in this thread when it's ready.

Thanks, and hopefully I got it right this time. I'm using an old wav-mp3 converter that I'm kind of attached to...

Good this time!

Volume dropped slightly on this one for some reason. It's still OK, but on the low side of OK. So don't change anything, but don't get any quieter. ;)

You're cleared for takeoff!

Thanks Tricia. That’s strange because I converted from the same wav file. Thanks though.
