Re: One minute test

Amplifying that much via the software is worse, since your starting signal-to-noise ratio is too small. Start with a decent recording volume and then only use the software to amplify 5-10db for optimal results.

Re: Guernica's 1-Minute Test

I reviewed Guernica's test sample and some changes are needed. LibriVox requires audio that is 128kb constant bit rate, mono, and between 86db and 92db, preferably 89-90. The sample is 86kb, variable bit rate, stereo, and 74.2db. When exporting your MP3 from Audacity, be sure to first check Bit Rate...

Re: 1 min test from Hope

Hi Hope

Sounds great and meets all the specs, although your sample is barely loud enough at 86.6db. You are good-to-go, however raise your volume about 3db going forward. No need to do another test.

Happy narrating!
