Audio Editing and enhancing


OVERVIEW


Audiobag's Audio Editing and Enhancing service transforms noisy, mistake-ridden recordings (for example, podcasts) into clean, error-free, polished presentations. Meticulous audio editing and enhancing takes time. But it's time well spent if you want to sound your best. Before taking their podcast editing in-house, Salesforce hired us to edit 20 of their podcasts for Marketing Cloudcast. And, we're proud to say, those 20 podcasts were chosen for CMI's Award for Best Podcast

Samples


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.

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, 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.

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.

After:



Sample 4
:

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.

Before:



After:

 

Sample 5:
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.

Before:



After:

 

Sample 6:
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.

Sample 7
:

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.

Before:



After:



Sample 8
:

ADJUSTING UNEVEN VOLUME LEVELS AND REMOVAL OF A HIGH-PITCHED TONE In the sample below, a customer sent us an interview with four people -- each in a different location in the world -- recorded using an online recording service. Unfortunately, when you have this many people on a call, you can't control what happens on someone's computer. This recording was a special challenge because one of the guests had a strange high-pitched tone that fluctuated in frequency. We "painted" it out of the recording, removed hiss and other room noise, and corrected the uneven volume levels.

Got a video that needs editing?

VIDEO EditingIf you need an audio track enhanced and you can send us just the audio track, use our audio editing service above. However, if the audio track of your video needs editing (something removed or added to the track), you'll need to send us your video so that we can sync your audio with your video. You'll need to use our video editing for that.
