Hello, I'm Matthew and I'm new!

I've uploaded a 1 minute test here: https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/test_mhnewell.mp3

Some tech specs:
- Recorded with Audacity 2.3.2
- iMac 10.14.6
- Blue Snowball mic with pop filter

Any feedback is appreciated! :clap:

Hi Matthew,

Nice job. There are a couple of technical issues.

The bit rate needs to be 128kbps and constant. Your is at 112 and variable.

In Audacity when you are exporting, look at the "format options" box, and you need to save the file as 128 kbps and select constant.

If you go to around the 2 minute mark in this video, you can see exactly how it is done: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d8JkCgKo3fU&t=72s

If you could fix this and reupload and post the file here that would be great!
