Dear Pastors and Church Administrators:
DO YOU HAVE A MESSAGE YOU HAVE RECORDED IN WHICH YOU LIKE THE CONTENT BUT YOU ARE DISAPOINTED WITH THE AUDIO QUALITY?
FOR LESS THAN THE COST OF A LUNCH WE CAN FIX IT FOR YOU!
We offer a range of services to Christian church's beginning with our service of editing sermons that are poorly recorded or have a lot of noise and other unwanted sounds that need to be edited out. Most pastors spend a couple of days a week preparing to deliver what they pray will be a Spirit lead inspirational message and it can be quite disappointing to have to archive these great sermons on their websites for others to hear only to have the quality diminished by a background hum, buzz, or other sounds that can distracting to the listeners.
The advantage for church administrators and pastors who must be budget minded is that we can do this work for a lower cost than almost anyone including doing it in house. A basic background noise removal (Level 1) costs about $20 dollars, which is a discounted price from what we charge secular companies.
Our sound technicians are blessed to have the work and our clients are blessed by getting good value for their money. And we are blessed not only by the savings, but with the knowledge that we are helping you, the pastors and churches, get the Word out with a quality recording.
A PERSONAL MESSAGE TO PASTORS
When you attach your name to something it becomes personal. When you attach your spoken or written word to your name and then broadcast it thorough-out the world it becomes intensely more personal.
That’s what your sermons are, an expression of your beliefs, endorsements, teaching or faith “on the air” for the world to access, consider and absorb. Not much is more personal to you than that, or to your listeners. And like most responsible pastors who broadcast their spoken word, they want to take pride and please God in the quality of the product they are bringing forth.
And this is why Touchpoint Communications exists, to help you put your message out there in the best possible light. Our audio editing and enhancement services are designed for just that purpose.

Samples of repaired audio files and pricing
LEVEL 1 REPAIR
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.
The samples on the links below are Level 1 repairs and are one minute long. In the first part of the file you will hear the raw unedited file. In the second part 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 30 second or less audio file for your comparison.
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.

for the 5 minutes, and our treatment in the repaired audio the last three minutes (starting at 5:04 in the file)
