Hi,

Please find attached my 1 minute test recording.
It was recorded with my SE2200A condenser microphone, Tascam US-2x2 audio interface, and Logic Pro X.

I know that there is a bit of noise floor in this recording, which I would normally remove with a noise gate, but I wanted to put this up here without all the tweaking.

I look forward to hearing your feedback.

Thank you
Shai.

Hi Shai, welcome to librivox :D

You're sounding great. No need to worry about the noise floor to be honest. You meet librivox standards in that aspect
Just a couple of tech specs to fix. Unfortunately, I can't tell you how to fix these in logic pro x, but here are the things that need to be fixed

The bit rate should be 128 kbps.  

The recording should be in mono sound, not stereo sound.  

The volume is too low at 84dB. We aim for 86 - 92dB (with 89 being the goal)

If you struggle to fix these issues you might want to consider using audacity, free software which most librivox volunteers use, as it will be easier to find advice on how to fix.

If you are able to fix these, please upload the revised test and post the link here :)

Hi,

Thank you for the tips.
I should be able to fix those issues without a problem.

I'll export out another version and see what you think.

Thank you.
