Here is my 1 Minute Test.

I have included both the raw recording and a sweetened version. There's about 5 seconds of room tone between the recordings.

Please let me know if you have any comments. :)

OOPS! I recorded using an AT2020 USB microphone into Adobe Audition on my Dell PC.

Welcome!

Sounds great! The "sweetened version" works perfectly for us. :)

The only things to mention are two technical settings:

1) The recording is in stereo; we use mono.

2) The sample rate is 48,000 Hz; it needs to be 44,100.

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. :) You're almost there!

That does it!

Volume is good, but on the high side of good. You're OK; just don't get any louder. ;)

Marking this off as OK. Have fun!
