Sound output volume test file

Web Link Published 3/17/17 Last updated on 2/28/20

Play this clip before recording audio or video; use it as a reference point for standard output volume on your speakers or a headset. This will help insure that the input level is correct.

Novices often don't realize they have the output level set high, and then record without monitoring the input volume level. When the novice listens to the recording they will think the level is high enough, when it is actually low.

[the text of the recording is from "Once On A Time" by A. A. Milne]
