I don't think you ever determined if the sound is at the top or bottom of the engine?
Should be EZ to hear. Just move around the engine and listen.
If not, {you can use a piece of water hose as a stethoscope and} listen to various places on the engine to find the loudest .
The recording does sound bad, but you might get lucky and all that is bad is a valve adjuster that has backed off. {as m in sc suggested}
If it's that, it's a relatively EZ fix.

Ride safe, Ted
