Hi, i'm THedboy and this is my 1 minute test.
I made it with audacity and a PC with operating system Windows 10.
I recorded it in italian, I hope it is not a problem. I used an analogic microphone AKG P120connected to an external audio interface PreSonus AUDIOBOX USB 96.
I've only read a few lines, but i think can be enough to detect any problem.
I thank in advance anyone who would like to hear my recording, in the hope it will be to your liking.

Hi THedboy. Welcome to LibriVox!

Your test is OK. My only suggestion might be to apply a little noise reduction in future recordings to tone down the background hiss. One pass with the default settings should do the trick.

Meanwhile, I will mark this test OK. If you plan to record in Italian, you might start by taking a look at the group projects in Readers Wanted: Languages Other than English. Alternately, there are usually one or two multilingual projects in the Short Works forum. Of course, you are welcome to record in any language in which you are comfortable. I only suggest these since you submitted your test in Italian. :)

Have fun!
