Hi Doc

I'm not an admin, however I did review your test recording, and while it sounds great, there are some technical issues:

LV requires 128kb fixed rate MP3's. Your sample is VBR and higher.
The desired average volume is 86-92db (about -27 to -21 RMS). Yours is 76db. You need to boost your mic input gain quite a bit.

You should do a new test and post in this thread, then it will perfect when a real admin comes along and approves it.

Also, it's a good idea to visit the Wiki and download the Checker app. It checks your recording against LV specs for you.
