Please advise if this works and give me any feedback you think I should note.

I'm using Audacity as the software (on Windows) and a Shure SM58 mic with a USB interface.

Thanks!

Edited to update link as I have now uploaded a 128 kbps constant rate mp3 file.

Hello and welcome to LV!

You have a lovely voice and your recording is nice and clean. The only change we need is for it to be in mono instead of stereo.

Take a look at your audio. Can you see two panels of waves? If not, adjust the Audacity screen. You should see two almost identical panels one above the other. This shows you that you have a stereo recording. We need mono. Go to Tracks>Mix> Mix stereo to mono. Now there should only be one panel of waves.

Please upload the modified file and post another link to this same thread for a double check.

Your corrections are perfect. PL OK. :clap: :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.
