Hello, my username is OldBumble. This is my first test with my current equipment using the settings from the wiki. Please let me know what I can improve and I'll get right on it. I used Audacity, Windows 10 and an XLR microphone (MXL 990) attached via a GoXLR deck.

Hi Old

Nice sample - meets all LV specs. However, your P's sound a bit poppy. Are you using a pop screen or equivalent? Also, is the mic directly in front, or to one side? Could you make one or both of those adjustments and submit a new sample labeled test2?
