WHAT WE NEED FROM YOU...
There are only a few things we need before we get to work:
The audio content you would like to include such as:
THE MASTERING PROCESS
From surgical sound reduction to softening the peaks, our considerate and unique mastering approach will give your podcast the quality it deserves.
Some microphones work exceptionally well at capturing the acoustic character of the room they are placed in. This can be great when a room is acoustically treated but untreated can cause the listener to feel disconnected from the podcast.*
Simple absorption panels are both easy, fun and relatively cheap to build. It's a great antidote to echoey rooms and can also look especially great in the backdrop with a logo.
DE-NOISING & DE-HUMMING
Our series of powerful spectral frequency analysing tools can dramatically reduce all intrusive background noise in even the most compromised audio. Your hum-free and hiss-free audio will provide a much more immersive experience for your listeners!
Through processes such as compression, expansion, limiting and volume automation, no matter the extend to which levels fluctuate for example a flurry of laughter followed by a whisper, we are able to balance the volume consistency throughout your episode whilst also preserving the original dynamic flow of the dialogue.
SNAP, CRACKLE & POP REMOVAL
We use algorithms that are able to weed out all those low level audio spikes that are usually only ever noticed when listening back to a podcast. Everything from mouth clicks, microphone bumps, heavy breaths, loud plosives and jarring 'esses' are able to be significantly reduced.
Sometimes adding a little tone and warmth to a recording can produce a much more soothing sound, capable of avoiding ear fatigue during a long episode or to help put the the listener at ease after a long day.
Adding some body to a feeble recording or brightening up a dampened take can go a long way to keeping listeners captivated by your content.
Often rooms have certain frequencies that can amount to different problems depending on where the microphones are placed.* We are able to zero in on these problematic frequency drop-offs or spikes and tame them in order for the dialogue to be as rich as possible.
Every voice is different and even the same voice can fluctuate from day to day. We will never use preset EQ curves (or any other software presets for that matter!) when working on your projects.
If you have a loudspeaker handy, try playing an online frequency sweep, while placing your head where the microphone is situated. At some point, you might start to hear certain frequencies pop out or even mysteriously disappear. EQing is the primary tool to calm or revivify these problematic 'standing waves'.
