Hello! I posted a 1 minute test back in October, but I got feedback it was a bit echoy and quiet, so I've waited until I had a more isolated set up to post another one. The new test is here: https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/test_rokkatar.mp3

I'm using Audacity, Windows and a Rode NT1 with AudioBox USB interface.

Thank you for the feedback!

Volume is good, but there are other issues. LibriVox requires audio that is 128kb constant bit rate, mono. Your sample is 95kb, variable.

When exporting your MP3 from Audacity, be sure to first check bit rate mode - Constant, then select 128kb from the pull-down menu, and check Force export to mono.

You can verify 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. Someone will meander by and review it for you.
