Re: 1 Minute Test

Okay, good volume. You have two other issues. First, there is excessive background noise - it needs to be reduced by -10db. Second, you are popping your P's. that is to say when you pronounce a plosive such as the letter P, your breath hits the mic making a pop noise. Audible pops are at 0.88 sec, 1...

Re: 1 Minute Test Maria O'Hara

Hi Maria I reviewed your test sample and some changes are needed. LibriVox requires audio that is 128kbps constant bit rate, 44.1kHz sample rate, mono, and between 86db and 92db, preferably 89-90. Your audio is 97kbps variable bit rate and just 78.7db. If you have a gain control on your mic, adjust ...

Hi Matt

Sounds good and meets all the specs. You are good-to-go. Happy narrating!

BTW, your background noise level is perfectly fine. Do not apply additional noise removal or you risk audio distortion.

Re: SOLO Last Call For Sector 9G by Leigh Brackett - pc

Section 2 PL notes There are 3 minor mis-reads, which really don't affect the meaning, so up to you if you want to edit: 4:29 They were always hard, always making a liar out of that pliant, generous mouth. Second always omitted. 8:51 " God, no . Not nearly." Said Oh, God ... 16:23 "Well," he said. "...

Re: One Minute Test

Hi Wade

Okay, you've solved the noise problem, so I'm going to okay you to start recording for real. Happy narrating!

I still think your space needs more dampening and less reverb, so you might try to work on that down the line.

Cheers!

Re: One Minute test Richard Enders (German)

Hi Richard

Both your tests pass, and they sound about the same, so use whichever mic you want.

Re: 1-Minute Test

Hi Beedle As you already know, your test passes but has excessive background noise. The volume is just under the max of 92db at 91.8. The ideal is 89-90, so try to bring down your volume a bit. If the noise is outside traffic there's nothing you can really do except use software noise reduction. It ...
