Hi there, DreamBoat

Your sample sounds great, however there are some technical issues that need fixing. LV requires audio that is 128kb fixed bit rate, and mono. Your sample is 192kb, stereo. I know of no way to export mono files out of the latest versions of GarageBand; as far as I know the option was eliminated some time ago. GB isn't a very good recording and editing audiobooks, anyway.

So, I recommend switching to Audacity or other software (TwistedWave is excellent, but not free) and submit a new sample. Label it test2 and post in this thread.

Again, sounds great. It's just the tech stuff.
