Hi (my young? :wink: ) padawan, welcome to librivox :D

You're sounding great but need to fix a couple of things before you record for projects.

is audiotonic the software you used to record or the brand of your mic? I'll let you know what needs to be fixed, if you're not sure how to fix these please let me know what software you are using and i'll do my best to provide instructions

The bit rate should be 128 kbps

The recording should be in mono sound, not stereo sound

The recording should use a constant bit rate

At 69.8 the volume is too low. We aim for 86 - 92dB (with 89 being the aim). We do have the checker tool https://cgjennings.ca/projects/checker/ which can tell you how many dB a recording is.

If you're able to fix these without further instruction please upload the amended test and post the link here. If you do need more guidance, again, please let me know what software you are using :)
