Hi Dave,
Great for a raw! I'm impressed. Nice and clear recording. Proof Listen (PL) OK. :clap:

The only thing I can recommend is to be careful of your volume. We aim for 89dB with an allowable range of 86-92dB. This file is 91.8dB so you don't want to be any louder.

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.
