Hi Islandgyal, welcome to Librivox :D

All tech specs are correct so you're ready to record for projects.

The recording does sound slightly distorted though. Did you run any noise reduction on this? (no worries if not, you're definitely already meeting librivox recordings and are still okay to record :D )

Thanks for the feedback, ashleighjane.

Nope - no noise reduction... I guess I'll figure out how to do that next. :mrgreen:

No need to do this as there is no background noise. Your recording is okay as is. Just wondered if you had used noise reduction as over doing it can cause distortions. However in this case it is just how your mic sounds and is still perfectly okay :)
