Hi Natalie,

Welcome to LibriVox! Chapter 7 is all yours! Please read the first post of this thread carefully.

Please let me know what name you would like to use for your catalog page. It can be your real name, forum name or a pseudonym ~ whatever you prefer!

Since this is your first recording, we ask that you send in a 1-minute test recording. This is not an audition, it's just to make sure the sound quality and the recording settings are all right - often things can be improved at the outset that are difficult to fix later. Please go to https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=1-Minute_Test to find out what to record for your 1-minute test, and how to upload the recording. In the LibriVox Uploader, please select 'tests - tests' from the MC drop-down, and then post your test recording in the Listeners Wanted forum, rather than in this thread - you'll get feedback more quickly there.

Thanks, and have fun!

Thank you so much for your help. This is my first time doing this so I appreiate your patience. I did go through the video and information you sent. I have re-recorded the test here:

Thank you,

Hi Rachel,

You have the settings correct, but the volume is a tad on the quiet side now. :-) Just a tad. I think you are okay to record, just make sure the volume is up a bit more or amplify the file by 2 or 3 DB.

You can check your technical settings yourself using this free tool that one of our volunteers made:
https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=Checker
https://cgjennings.ca/projects/checker/

Or, just to check the volume, you can download a program called mp3gain. We don't recommend you increase the volume in it, but just to use it to check it. :-)

Thank you, Maria! It's been hard to tell exactly what's the perfect volume in Audacity. I will definitely make use of the tools provided. Much thanks!
