Audio Samples

 

We have compiled some before and after audio files for you to compare the

 

difference between the raw unedited files and the files which we have

 

corrected.

 

LEVEL 1

 

A Level 1 edit is a basic background noise reduction process which also includes the removal or reduction of some of the more obvious and glaring unwanted sounds. In the Level 1 editing process we do not audit the entire file. We apply certain techniques that will be applied to the entire file automatically.

 

It is recommended that you wear headphones when listening so you can more clearly hear the difference. Many if not most of your listeners will be wearing headphones, so you should hear what they will be hearing.

 

The samples on the links below are Level 1 and are one minute long. In the first 30 seconds section you will hear the raw unedited file. In the last 30 seconds you will hear the edited section.

 

You will hear a dramatic difference in sound quality. This is the least time consuming process for us and therefore the least expensive option.

 

These links will open a one minute audio file for your comparison.

LEVEL 2

 

A Level 2 edit is the ultimate editing repair. In the following Level 2 audio file we have made a dramatic difference in the sound. We removed background noise, coughing, bangs and bumps, speaker breathing & "ahs and umms", repeat words, long silences, clicks, etc.

 

Performing a Level 2 edit on an audio file is the most detailed and intense work we do and can take up to two hours to correct a 10 to 45 minute audio file depending on the severity of the problems on the file we observe.

 

This is the entire file and is about 11 minutes long after editing. The original file was about 13 minutes long. If you don't want to listen to the entire recording you may advance ahead and listen to sections. You will see the difference immediately however.

for the first minute, and our treatment in the repaired audio file below.

For all others it is $1.50 per audio audio file length minute.

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMPORTANT:

 

Audio editing is more of an art than a science. Not all unwanted sound can be removed. There are fatal errors in some recordings that can't be fixed. Examples of this would be echoes, continuous sounds directly covering the speakers voice (like crying babies, sirens, and car alarms). Thumps and sharp sounds can often be removed because the don't dominate the sound wave like a long continuous sound does.

 

Things like volume levels, word removal, long silences can usually be repaired or altered.

 

 

How we work with you:

 

We can download your audio file from your website or you may upload it to our secure Dropbox file. We will work on a few minutes of the file and send it to you for you to evaluate for free. If you are satisfied with the result, we will quote you on the cost to edit and repair the entire file. We want you to hear in advance what to expect before you commit to our working on the entire file before you pay for it

 

We do it this way because you need to understand that while most files can be made nearly perfectly clean and clear, some audio flles are so corrupted that we can only improve the quality.

 

A person's evaluation of the cost and value of a service is subjective, of course, but we think you will find that this is a very affordable proceedure.

 

Again, we like to look at each job individually and clean the first three minutes and then send that to you to evaluate and see if it meets your satisfaction before you or we commit to working on the file.
