The recording software I used was Microsoft's voice recorder app (I converted it to MP3 after the audio was recorded). The operating software I am using is Windows (Windows 10 to be specific). I am using a USB microphone (Blue Yeti X to be specific). Thanks!

Hey beflamed! Welcome to Librivox!
First of all, your recording quality sounds great. Keep your microphone the way it is. :thumbs:
There are a couple audio issues, though. Your bit rate should be 128kps, the sampling rate should be 44.1 khz, and your recording should be in mono, not stereo sound. Aand your volume should be a little louder. Yes, this all sounds like overwhelming technobabble, but fortunately there is an information page telling you how to do that, and if that doesn't help, you can always look it up.(BTW, this makes me sound smarter than I really am, because I don't really know what half of that means :oops: )
Here's the information page; hope it helps!
