Hello there!

Just finished recording my one minute test, and would love some feedback. I'm recording on Audacity 2.3.2, on a 2014 Macbook Air, with the built-in mic. I'm hoping to get a better USB mic soon, but wanted to try my hand at a few recordings first to get a feel for it, and not rush in headlong. I DID however construct a little recording studio in my closet with all the topsheets my wife and I don't use :lol:

Full disclosure, I did increase the volume a little bit to get closer to the 89 dB recommendation.

Thanks,

Well your settings are correct, so you can go ahead and begin! I was the same way, I didn't invest in a mic until after a little while.
