Hello! I submitted a one minute test earlier and got some constructed criticism. Here's my revised test.

Just one more edit needed please.
It is best to remove any DC bias. If you are using Audacity, to fix this select the entire track, and then Effect --> Normalize, and it will fix it for you.

Hello! I posted my one minute test earlier and was told of just a minor edit, but my post got lost a bit further back, so I thought I'd make another with the revised test. If someone could let me know if this one is ok that would be much appreciated. :)
Thanks
