Oi gente, aqui está o meu teste.
Não deve ter ficado perfeito, pois ainda estou aprendendo a mexer no Audacity e estou usando um headset, mas tentei diminuir o barulho de fundo.

Gravei com Audacity, Windows e um microfone headset.

Hey guys, here is my test.
It isn't perfect, because I'm still learning how to use Audacity and I am using a headset, but I tried to clean the background noise.

Recorded with Audacity, Windows and a headset microphone.

Welcome!

It sounds good! There are a couple things to adjust:

1) Your volume is a bit too high. Visually, you should aim for your wave forms to peak near the 0.5 mark, like this:

You can either amplify all your recordings by -5 (making them quieter), or you can adjust your input volume down a bit.

2) Bit rate is 192 kbps; it needs to be 128. This is set when you export to MP3. When you go to export, on the screen where you enter the file name for the MP3, change the quality to 128 kbps. You should only have to set it once; it'll remember the setting until you change it again.

Try making these adjustments, then post another test. Use the same file name as your previous one, and post in this same thread when it's ready. :)

Hello, thanks for the feedback :D .

I tried to make the adjustments following your recommendations, however when I adjusted Amplify in -5, it became too low, so I adjusted it to -3, is that okay?
Also I tried to leave some of the background hums because it started to distort my voice when I applied too much noise cleaning.

This is okay. :)

It measures at 91.4 dB. We aim for about 86-92, so you are within the correct range.

Marking this test as OK!
