Hello there. I've uploaded my test. Please let me know if this will work or if I need to adjust anything :)


Recorded in Cakewalk. Mic used was Warm Audio large diaphragm condenser WA-47jr in a non-treated room with drywall. I tried to keep the mic positioned about 6-8 inches from my mouth with pop filter between. After editing I added slight compression, rolled off the low end with eq, and used the loudmax vst plugin to bring up to proper lufs (-16) and level (-6). Exported as mono mp3 @ constant 128bitrate.

Output from "Checker" program -
File Size
0.5 MiB

Encoding Type
MPEG-1 Layer III (encoded with LAME3.100)
MP3 Format
128 kbps 44,100 Hz Mono
Track Length
0:34.06 (m:ss.ss)
89.8 dB
DC Bias
-7 (-0.0201%)
Clipped Audio
0 ms (0.00%)

Yep, all the specs are exact.

Reading voice and style are superb. :clap:

I did notice some hum, especially in that ending silence.
I don't know if your program has some sort of noise reduction feature, but take a listen. It is certainly within our LibriVox standards, so i just mention this for your consideration.

Test is OK, so you are good to go!

Welcome to LibriVox :clap:
