Hi David. Welcome to LibriVox.


The bitrate for the exported mp3 should be 128kbps. Your file was exported at 192 kbps.

If you are using Audacity, you set the bitrate at the bottom of the export window under Format Options.
Bit Rate Mode: Constant
Quality - select 128 kbps from the dropdown

The volume on this test is 90.8 db which is on the high end of the acceptable range. We aim for 89 db with an acceptable range of 86-92 db. You could comfortably back off a little.

Please make the above adjustments and upload another test. Just post the link in this same thread to keep everything together.

Thanks for the feedback. I forgot to change the settings that I use for ACX. Sorry.

Hello David,

For some reason the second test didn't come up as a link. Would you please post it again? (You might have to upload it again unless you have the link sitting around somewhere)

Yes it does! It checks out nicely, you can head over to the Readers Wanted forums and claim a section or two that looks interesting. Have fun!
