Hello everyone,

Here is my 1 minute test...

https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/Test_1.mp3

I'm using Reaper with Windows 10 and a USB mic. Any feedback good or bad would be greatly appreciated. :D

Hi Andrew. Welcome to LibriVox. Your test recording in all good except for volume. The volume on this recording is too low. (80db). We aim for 89 db with an acceptable range of 86-92 db. YOu can either increase the mic input volume or since your background is very quiet, simply amplify the recording.

If you like you can download the checker program to check your volume after exporting to mp3 and before you upload your file.

Please try increasing the volume and/or amplifying and upload another test. Just post the link to this same thread to keep all your tests together.
