Hello JT,

I just listened to your new recording, and it sounds good. Raw, is it not? There is a bit of room noise that should be easily reduced with a single pass without affecting your great voice. That said, if you can find a quieter place to record, your tracks will only benefit from that. Any time we use noise reduction, our own voice gets tweaked a bit...

The mic's a keeper!

Hello and thanks for getting back so soon. It is raw. Will have to remember to fix before submitting next time :lol:

Actually, when submitting tests for whatever reason, uploading raw is OK. It helps discovering the cause of any issue. Just consider letting listeners know. Postprocessing is recommended when submitting to a project. :)
