Hello,
I was not happy with my original settings so, I uploaded a new test record. I would love some feedback from experienced readers/listeners.
Thanks in advance,
Rick Ridpath

Welcome!

Excellent! It sounds great, and all the settings are OK.

The volume is on the high side of OK. You can leave it where it is if you like, but try not to get any louder. (If you end up reading a really exciting passage, you'll need to adjust the volume down.). ;)

Marking this off as OK. Go forth and record! :clap:

Well, I tested THIS file on your other test thread - because when you upload using the same file name, the most recent version keeps the file name while the old one gets renamed. So I didn't even hear your other test. ;)

My comments on your other thread, therefore, apply to this audio.

Basically, you're good to go; just watch your volume, that you don't go any higher. ;)

Thank you so much, Tricia :) Much appreciated.

I knew it may be a little hot for LibriVox as my settings are initially set for ACX which likes things a little louder. The only thing I had to change for Librivox, basically, was changing from 192kbps to 128 :)
Thanks, again. Can’t wait to contribute.
Cheers!!!
