Re: test recording for review

Hi Jamie I reviewed your test sample, and it meets all LV requirements so your are good-to-go. Happy narrating. I'd just want to note that it requires no noise reduction at all; I'd avoid that if I were you. Compression - light compression of at most 2:1 - is a good idea. Not sure what EQ you have i...

Re: [SOLO] LOOK TO THE STARS - philc

Don't forget to write a summary. It's the responsibility of the soloist. Just edit your first post. If you copy text from another source, be sure that it is public domain.

Re: 1 minute test

I reviewed your 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. Your sample is in stereo and just barely under the maximum at 91.4db. When exporting your MP3 from Audacity, be sure to first check Bit...
