Everything is good except your volume, which is way too low at 82.6db. LV requires audio between 86db and 92db, preferably 89-90.

You can check your audio yourself by downloading the free Checker app: https://cgjennings.ca/projects/checker/

Please record a new test with the same file name and post it as a reply. I’ll return and review it for you.

HI sjmarky !

I have re-recorded the test with new volume settings. The checker say it is now 90.2 dB so it should be good.
Here is the link:
