Okay this is my last attempt exporting this GarageBand track before I give up and rerecord one with Audacity. I don't know why it's exporting the track in stereo when it was recorded in mono. Don't know how to fix it.
GarageBand is a pain in the rump when it comes to getting the bit rate and mono/stereo thing correct at the same time. If this page doesn't help, then yes - go with Audacity. :)

I'm relieved to hear you say that. 8-)

Hello Drew,

Good job. I realise it takes a bit of work, but you have now got that behind you.
Technicals good.

Proof Listen OK.

I suggest you spend some time becoming familiar with the forum and looking for projects that you think you'd enjoy working on. Just jump right in wherever it feels comfortable. Most of all, always have fun. You'll find lots of interesting material to record. If you're like me, you'll also discover you're learning a lot in the process and being exposed to books I otherwise wouldn't have opened or known about. You'll be contributing to an interesting project and interacting with a lot of fun and varied fellow LibriVox volunteers in the process. I recommend starting with short works, such as poetry and dramatic readings.

Thank you for participating in Librivox,
Adrian Stephens
