Our Premium Audio EDITING & ENHANCING
• We eliminate or reduce verbal flubs and noise such as hiss, hum, plosives, sibilance, breath noise, wind, false starts, unwanted sections, filler words, pauses, thumps, rumble, crackle, pops, sirens, noises, phone and computer sounds.
• We adjust volume levels and tonal balance. We also reduce reverberation caused by poor room acoustics. We reduce the hollow sound as much as possible. Often we have to leave in some reverberation so that the voice sounds natural (instead of robotic or chopped).
• We mix in additional material such as an intro, outro, and sponsors that you provide to us. If you don't have an intro and outro, you can purchase them from us. We use professional voice talent and royalty-free music to make sure you're legal. Learn more about an intro here.
• Online ordering is fast and easy. After you've completed your online purchase, leave your browser open so we can re-direct you to our script and Instructions form where you can upload your audio file(s) in our Dropbox and give us your instructions.
• Typical turnaround time depends on the length of your recording
Up to 30 minutes = allow up to 2 days
31 to 45 minutes = allow up to 4 days
46 to 60 minutes = allow up to 6 days
• Guarantee: After we've sent you an email letting you know that your audio is ready, you have 7 days to let us know if we made an editing mistake or if you have a concern about the sound quality. Please see the complete details of our guarantee.
before and after samples:
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, ums, and other verbal mistakes, eliminated hiss and hum, reduced the reverberation of the voices bouncing off nearby walls, 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.
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
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.
PODCAST EDITING AND ENHANCING OF DISTORTION, HISS AND UNEVEN 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.
HISS FROM AN AUDIO TRACK FOR A FILM: A filmmaker sent us the audio track from a documentary film he was creating that had a lot of hiss in it. We removed the hiss but kept the breath noises in the audio track to preserve the emotion.
CRACKLE IN A PHONE INTERVIEW: A customer sent us a phone interview with a podcast guest. Unfortunately, the phone line was full of crackle. We removed the crackle and EQ'ed the voice to make it easier on the ears.
Note: This phone interview was for a presentation. It was not secretly recorded. We don't work on secretly recorded material.
REMOVING ROOM NOISE AND ADJUSTING VOLUME LEVELS Besides editing and enhancing audio for companies and individuals, we also work as a government contractor, editing and enhancing podcasts for the U.S. Air Force. When you listen to the before sample below, you'll notice the sound of a furnace running in the background, as well as the volume levels of the voices are uneven (not to mention the voices reverberate against the walls and floors). We removed the noise and enhanced the voices in the after sample.
ADJUSTING UNEVEN VOLUME LEVELS, REMOVAL OF ROOM NOISE AND CELL PHONE PINGS In the sample below, a customer sent us her weekly podcast that contained the usual verbal flubs and noise that happen when recording at home. We increased the volume, removed the room noise (mainly a furnace blowing air out a vent) and pings coming from her nearby cell phone.
CLEANING UP DIALOGUE AND ADDING MUSIC BACKGROUND FOR EMOTION In the sample below, a customer sent us several audio clips of people doing in memoriam tributes to a person in their organization who died of cancer. The before sample contains just a few seconds of three of the audio clips sent to us. You'll hear hiss, pops and verbal flubs. We cleaned up the audio, removing the noise. We also added music to give the final presentation emotion.
Buy Audio editing & enhancing
$7 per minute of your raw recording
A raw recording is the length of your recording before we work on it. Or if you don't need the entire recording edited and/or enhanced, determine the number of minutes of any segment(s) you want us to work on, and purchase just the number of minutes you need.
For example, if your recording is 5 minutes and 23 seconds in length, the price is $7 x 5 minutes (time is rounded to the nearest minute) = $35. Buy just the number of minutes you need, or buy minutes in bulk for future recordings. Your unused minutes accrue, so you don't have to worry about not knowing how many exact minutes you'll need for future recordings. We help you keep track of how many minutes you have remaining and post the information on your download page. If you still have minutes remaining but not enough to cover another editing project, you can buy additional minutes to add to your remaining minutes. NOTE: We don't work on secretly recorded, interrogation, and surveillance audio.
BONUS: Get 20% additional minutes when you buy at least 100 minutes in a single purchase. For example, purchase 150 minutes and get 20% additional minutes (30) for a total of 180 minutes.
