Hi,

Here's my one-minute test. Sorry for deleting the last one; I picked up on some background noise later on. This one ought to be better, but of course, let me know if there are issues with it:

Welcome to LV!

Great test recording; nice and clear.

The volume is a little low at 85.3dB. We aim for 89dB with an allowable range of 86-92dB. You didn't indicate if you are using Audacity. If you are, then here is a video on amplification. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_z607awyLw

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

Thanks, and my bad. Yes, I recorded via Audacity using a USB mic connected to a Mac. Here's the edited test:

That took care of it. Proof Listen (PL) ok. :clap:

Note this is now at 91.3dB so you won't want to get much 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.
