Noise floor exceeds ACX limit

Hi, I've recently been in touch with Koz on this forum regarding the technical issues I was having with my RMS levels, and I've received great help with that. But I'm running into a new problem now. After following the mastering steps for a raw audio file (Effect>Filter Curve>Factory Preset>Low Roll...

Re: RMS Levels too low for Audacity

Hi Koz,

Quick follow up-I tried doing the same mastering steps with another raw audio sample I'd made as a test, and I'm consistently getting the same results. Everything passes the ACX check except the Noise floor, and I have no idea how to fix that.

Re: RMS Levels too low for Audacity

Okay, I did those steps exactly in that order with the raw copy. (Don't worry, I have a separate one saved as a WAV file) Once choosing the default option with RMS normalizer and once choosing the, "linked stereo option" and I'm still getting this every time. From anything that you see in my recordi...

Re: RMS Levels too low for Audacity

I do have the raw copy. When I go to normalize RMS level, theres an option as well for, "Normalize stereo channels" and it's set at a default at "independently" but the other option is, "linked stereo" which is correct?

Re: RMS Levels too low for Audacity

Audacity 2.3.3

I split stereo to mono and deleted the bottom track. It plays perfectly now, no fuzziness, but I'm still getting the message that the noise floor is still too high from the ACX Check

Re: RMS Levels too low for Audacity

Okay, I've gotten the RMS normalizer and the ACX-check downloaded. I did apply the RMS normalizer at 20.00dB, then added a filter curve for low roll off for speech, as well as the Limiter, and this is what I got. However, even though it passes more of the ACX check than it did before, when I press p...

Re: RMS Levels too low for Audacity

Hi, thank you for providing that link. I've downloaded the ACX-check as well as rms normalize, (the new version) and they don't open. I've tried deleting them, re-downloading them and re-opening them and nothing happens.

RMS Levels too low for Audacity

Hello, I'm recording my first audio book for ACX, and I'm having trouble with the RMS levels, when I uploaded my first 15 minute checkpoint to ACX the RMS level was at 34.24 dB. I need to find a way to raise the RMS level in Audacity to meet ACX standards. I've read a lot of the other posts on this ...
