Hello,
Please review my one minute test.

https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/test_ralphjmartin.mp3

Am using Win 10 with Studio One v4.6 and a condenser mic.

Please let me know if I need to update anything.

Glad to be here! Thanks for your time!

Regards,
Ralph Martin

Hi Ralph, welcome to librivox :D

You're sounding great but you do have some tech specs to fix. I can't tell you how to fix these settings in studio one. If you're unsure how to do so, you might like to consider using audacity as it can definitely achieve the settings needed for librivox - it's free software which most librivox volunteers use so more people will be able to help with how to fix settings

The bit rate should be 128 kbps.  

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

The volume is too low at 81.4dB. We aim for 86 - 92dB (with 89dB being the goal)

Please upload a new test once these settings are fixed and post the link here :)

This is set to:
mono
128 bit rate
And I can't check for 86-92 db, but I did turn it up and notch.
I found that 89 db is about 18 LUFS, I am hitting 18.2 average. Is this ok?

Thanks for your help.
Regards,
Ralph Martin

Hi again :)

Volume is now too high at 96.3dB. I forgot to say, we have the checker tool here https://cgjennings.ca/projects/checker/ which can tell you the volume of a recording. it also lets you know if other settings are correct. Unfortunately, i don't know anything about LUFS

Also, this test is still in stereo and the bitrate is 64 kbps.
