Hi, I’m new. Here’s my test. I Noticed that I said thirteenth rather than thirtieth after I uploaded, so please excuse that. You should still get a good idea of how my recordings will sound. I am using a software called Reaper as my DAW. I am using an audio technica AT2020 microphone, and running that into a USB mixer. Any suggestions are gladly welcomed.

Woah. Great voice! That sounded good coming from my end. No background and your voice was clear. :clap:
She plays in the background,
I live in the world.
We meet in the mirror and confront the harshness of the elements on my side,
immortal innocence on hers.

Hey,

Since I'm going to be your DPL in An Essay Concerning Human Understanding and Culinary Herbs. I listened to your test. Your voice is crystal clear. :thumbs:

But I run your recording on Checker. Your track channel is Stereo (Joint). We accept Mono.

Summary of tech specs
Channel: Mono
Sample rate: 44100 Hz
Sample format: 16 bit
Export format: MP3
Export bitrate: 128 kbps

You can download Checker from here: https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=Checker
Phil has made a tutorial about it: https://youtu.be/kkhk0megqHE

Please fix the recording to Mono and re-upload it here. I hope to hear from you soon. :D
Constructive criticism is always welcome. Thanks, SaraHale. :D

After a critique of my first test I tweaked some settings and re-recorded my test. Please let me know if there is anything else I should address.
