Hi guys! Here's my one minute test. Really excited but also nervous! https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/test_merecat.mp3

I recorded in Audacity, and I'm using Windows 10. Not sure exactly what the mic's specs are, it's a plugin one either way. Please let me know what I can improve on! Thanks and have a great day!

Hi merecat, welcome to librivox :D

All of you're tech specs are correct but you have a little background noise but that can be fixed with noise reduction and other than that you're sounding great :D Instructions for noise reduction doing this can be found here https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Noisecleaning_With_Pics

Once you've ran noise reduction please upload the test again and post the link here

Hi Ashleigh Jane,

thanks for the feedback, and sorry for the delay in replying! I've done some noise reduction and reuploaded; it was cool to learn how to do it!

Here's the new sample. https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/test_merecat2.mp3

Thanks for the feedback!
