Definitely on the right track!

The only issue I see off the bat is that the volume is too low. It needs to come up about 7 or 8 dB.

Try bumping up your mic slider by a notch or two.

(You may have to look into some light noise removal if the background noise also goes up. We'll cross that bridge when we come to it.) :)

Try making this adjustment, then post another test. Use the same file name as your previous one, and post in this same thread when it's ready. :)

This is my second test. I had to try a few times, to start download. Not sure it worked. I boosted the mic and used a portable sound booth. Please advise if this works.

I do see one extra version in the uploader, so a total of two of the new test files made it through. No worries! The folder is cleaned out periodically, so it'll all go away eventually.

It's good now! Volume is within range, but it's on the low side of the OK range. You don't need to change it, but try not to get much quieter. ;)

Have fun!

TriciaG,
Thanks a bunch. Would you mind if I sent one more test, since it was still on the "low side." I'd rather be certain.

That's fine, if you would like to adjust it a little bit more. :)
