Hi. We need your file to be in MP3 format before we can check it out. Please change it to that format and upload again and put it into this same thread so we will see it quicikly. :D

It is now an MP3 and that is good. But you will need to fix several things with your set up then make a second test:
1) We need recordings in mono (one track); your test is now in stereo (two tracks)
2). We need a bit rate of 128 kbps constant; yours is now set to 192 kbps
3). We aim at around a volume of 89 decibels: your volume is high at 93.3 decibels so it needs to be reduced by about 4 decibels.

I do not know how to export a track as mono in grarageband but perhaps there is a way to do it. We mostly use Audacity here
and have not had much luck with garageband. Here is a link to downloading audacity https://youtu.be/kBZ9fFopLRg. You can use whatever you wish, as long as your technical specs match what we use.

So, please fix these 3 things, make another test, call it TEST 2, upload and put the link in this thread so I will see it quickly.
You are close so don't give up now.
