This is the new 1 min test: https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/Sherbrad.mp3

It was posted in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=66992

It sounds a bit soft to me, and there's lots of background noise, but I'd like someone more technically minded to check it please!

test recording! done!

Hi Sherrie, I am replying to your test recording here.

Your specs need a bit of adjusting,
- the file is in stereo and we need a mono recording
- the bitrate has to be 128 kbsp, yours is 141 (variable)
- volume is too low at 81.3 dB, anything between 87 - 91 is ideal
Without knowing your recording software, it is hard to advise you on how to adjust your settings.

Yes, play with your settings and post another test file here. I forgot to post this regarding volume.
You should aim for your wave forms to peak near the 0.5 mark, like this:
