Hello V,
Welcome to LV!

Everything except for the volume is on target! :D

I suggest changing your input volume and giving it another try. The volume is currently at 70.8dB. We aim for 89dB with an acceptable range of 86-92dB.

If you want to check your settings yourself you could download a program made for us; the checker. viewtopic.php?f=21&t=36489

Please post your revision in this same thread for another listen.

Here is my redo. It passed the checker, but I'm at the low end of the range.
Maybe it is my mic, I don't know. It's not a great mic.

Thanks for taking another listen. New file is at https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/test_vmac.mp3

Regards,
V.

V,
That was a great improvement! All specifications pass. PL OK. :clap:

You may now record for projects. We suggest starting in short works until you are comfortable with the editing process.

When you have some time please take a look at our wiki. It's a wonderful resource.

Have fun and thank you for contributing.
