The limiter step is my third process. Why do you think I left it out?

Because it doesn't appear in your dialog.

You mean this one, if not then I have no idea what you are referring to.

The pre-amp is needed when you can not record in between a -6 and -12 dbs while still keeping your noise floor at a -60 to -70 dbs. This is why you are having problems with your RMS levels, I am 99.9% sure. I took your file and applied the low speech roll off, then used the RMS normalizer to -18dbs then normalized to -3.5 dbs and it passed just fine. It's OK if you have to apply these filters to meet the ACX requirements, it's just better if you can get there naturally.

Just had my first (short) audiobook go live for sale on Amazon, Audible & iTunes!

A few chapters even passed ACX check without mastering!

Looking forward to recording more, thanks so much again for all the help, guys! Couldn't have done it without you :D
