Success Story


Oh man!  How is my noise floor so low now!  I already had loud max installed but you have just made my mastering process infinitely easier.  I can not thank you enough.  I have watched many many of your videos so thanks for those as well.  I appreciate all your help.

Step 2 (of 2):

Need to create the perfect audiobook recording for ACX or other publishers that require "finished" or "mastered" files? We'll provide the training you need to quickly produce a professional finished product, complete with mastering settings we've custom created for you ​from your audio samples.  ​We can teach you the entire process of recording an audiobook, from "mic to MP3".   Recording, Editing, Proofing, and Mastering! 

We'll show you how, in an easy-to-learn and repeat method, on your audio recording software*.

We will:

  • Evaluate up to 10 minutes (or one chapter, whichever is less) of your recording  for sound quality and give suggestions on how to improve the sound, if necessary.
  • Explain editing methods, such as how to record and edit in a pick-up to match the original audio
  • Provide guidance on complete workflow and file management for efficient and quality production, including how to work with a third-party proofer (HIGHLY recommended).
  • Create the perfect audio processing settings for your voice, room, microphone, and delivery style, then provide instructions and/or templates to replicate the sound.  
  • Give you a fully processed audio file in the format of choice for your review. 
  • You'll send us the next segment (up to 10 minutes) of audio that you produced on your own. We'll check your work!

We won't:

  • Coach you on voice acting or how to create and maintain characters (check our Education department for help!) 
  • Do the work for you.  This is to train YOU how to do this, and you can! 
  • Belittle you and overwhelm you with unnecessary steps and details.

We can work with:

  • TwistedWave for Mac (not iOS)
  • Sony SoundForge Pro for Windows
  • Adobe Audition (CS 5.5 or higher) for Mac or Windows
  • Pro Tools for Mac or Windows (Pro Tools 11 or newer recommended*)
  • *Pro Tools 10 and earlier require a convoluted and tedious process for mastering. You've been warned.
  • Reaper & Audacity for Mac or Windows (with additional plug-ins) 

If your DAW is not listed, let us know, and we'll look into possible alternative solutions for you.  

$500 for the entire training system, including the custom Mastering settings created by George Whittam.  

If you want to learn only the Mastering process, that service is also available for $200.
