Hey there.

Just 2 quick things till your off to "real recording"

1st off we need to fix your volume. We need 86-92dB with a target of 89dB you are at 84dB Just do this.
  • Go to your file
    Select the whole file
    Go to Effect>Amplify
    Type 5 in the first box
    Click Apply
Next lets fix your background noise.
  • First select a small file of noise with no talking in it
    Next go to effect>noise reductoin
    click learn
    go back and select the whole file
    go back to the noise reduction page
    click apply
Once you do that just re upload here! I'll be back to check :)

Thank you for your feedback! I haven't had time to tinker with the recording yet but I didn't want to abandon the thread.

I'll have another revision up in the next few days.

I apologize for the delay. Here is the updated recording - https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/test_nzager321v2.mp3

I've amplified the recording by ~5db and verified it with mp3Gain.

I removed the background noise as well.

Thank you for the feedback, cheers!
