Hi. To record this test, I used Audacity, a Rode NT1 microphone routed through a Focusrite Solo. I used ACX to normalize and applied a limiter. I just have Sony headphones. Here's the link to the test: https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/test_vonniejames.mp3

Fingers crossed!

I'm new, but that sounds pretty good!

Welcome to Librivox, Vonnie!

The sound is pretty good indeed! I got the bit rate wrong, but you can set that when exporting as mp3. Check the format options in the Export Window, and choose "Constant" for Bit Rate Mode, and "128 kbps" for Quality. Then click Save to export and Audacity should keep these settings for all future exports.

Then upload your newly exported file once more to check again and make sure it works! Thank you!
