Audio Editing and Enhancing


We're an audio production company based in the United States that specializes in audio editing and enhancing. We offer two services — Premium and Quick-Mix.

Our Premium service is a thorough editing and enhancing of your recording. It has been a top-seller for the past 5 years. It even helped win an award. Audiobag edited and enhanced a series of podcasts that won our customer CMI's 2016 Award for Best Podcast.

Choose our Quick-Mix service if you need a quick mix of your recording and don't mind leaving in mistakes such as verbal flubs and sporadic noises (thumps, clicks, breath noise, etc.). We edit out the pre- and post-recording chatter, remove sections that you decide not to include, mix in your intro, outro and sponsor messages (if applicable), reduce hiss and hum, and adjust volume levels to make the host and guests sound about the same level. We don't edit out mistakes, verbal flubs, and individual noises in our Quick-Mix service (you'll want our Premium service for that).

Samples of our audio editing and enhancing:


We encourage you listen to before and after examples of any audio editing service you're considering (and listen with your best set of headphones). If an audio editing company doesn't post before and after audio samples, you won't know their capabilities. Below are examples of projects we've worked on:

Sample 1
:

MAKE-READY PODCAST: A customer purchased 10 podcast editing and enhancing jobs from us to transform his raw recording into a ready-to-go podcast, We eliminated "uhs" and other verbal mistakes, eliminated hiss and hum, and adjusted the volumes between the host and the guest. The customer also purchased our Intro and Outro Package — which we inserted into the show.

Before:


After:



Sample 2
:

UNNECESSARY WORDS, DIGITAL POPS, AND A PHONE RINGING: In this brief sample of a podcast we repaired, we eliminated 3 problems:
1) The host said the word "the" two times in a row
2) Digital pops
3) Phone ringing

Before:


After:



Sample 3:
LOW MICROPHONE VOLUME AND HISS PROBLEM: A customer sent us a recording he made where his microphone wasn't working. In fact, his voice was recorded by the guest's microphone who sat across from him. Besides very low volume, the recording also had hiss and verbal flubs. We enhanced the interviewer's voice, and removed the hiss and flubs.

Before:


After:


Sample 4
:

PODCAST EDITING AND ENHANCING OF DISTORTION, HISS AND UNEQUAL VOLUME LEVELS: In the before editing audio sample you’ll hear that the podcaster recorded herself on the left channel, and she chose the right channel to record her guest. You’ll notice at the very beginning the guest is making some noise. We removed the noise, reduced the hiss, adjusted the volume levels and made the recording sound more natural by converting it to monaural.

Before:


After:


Sample 5
:

PLOSIVES, BREATH NOISE, UMS, AND REPETITIVE WORDS: In the before sample below, you'll hear what typically happens when you don't use a windscreen or shield on your microphone. You'll get a plosive (also known as a popped "P"). We removed the plosives, reduced the breath noise (sometimes we like to leave a hint of breath noise in a presentation to make it sound natural), and we take out repetitive words (basically where a person repeats the same word while trying to think of what they want to say next).
