Awesome! Thanks for the feedback about the volume.... so can I take this to mean that my room acoustics, mic placement, and gain setting are good and I shouldn't mess with them? Or are there still things I should try to help my audio? I feel like a lot of mouth clicks get picked up in the middle of words where I have my gain set at. Were they noticeable to you?
Yes, your room and mic arrangement sound just fine. Your gain setting could
be around 1.5 dB lower but your chapter was easily
in the LibriVox range so that's nothing to worry about.
We're all fussy about the way our own voice sounds on a playback. Mouth clicks? In your
voice? Nah; listen to my voice if you want to hear mouth clicks.
The important things I'm not hearing from your setup:
I'm not hearing plosives; blowing into the mic on 'p' or 't' sounds
I'm not hearing the jackhammer factory next door
I'm not hearing any echoey "I'm recording this in a tiled bathroom" sound
Summary: carry on and record a lot.
