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:

$200

Need to create the perfect audiobook recording for ACX or other publishers that require "finished" or "mastered" files ? We'll provide the information you need to quickly produce a professional finished product, complete with mastering effects settings we've custom created for you. 

Whether you're just getting started with audiobooks, or you want to do more of the work to save on production costs, consider letting us create the perfect audio processing settings for your voice, room, mic, and narration style.  

To create the desired results, the Mastering process requires an engineer with great ears and processing skill. We know what it takes to reproduce the right results with your voice and software. We'll show you how, in an easy-to-learn and repeat method, on almost any audio recording software. 

We will review your audio sample and create a processing scheme for your voice, style of read, and recording software.

You'll receive (usually within a week):

  • The finished audio sample for your approval
  • An effects-processing customized preset . (Depending on your DAW, presets may be called racks, stacks, templates, or screen shots, etc.)
  • A video tutorial explaining how to turn the settings into an easy-to-use preset!

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.
  • Provide guidance on complete workflow and file management for efficient and quality production, including how to work with a third-party proofer (HIGHLY recommended).* Included in editing package only.
  • 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. (George will send back your processed recording and audio effects information within 3 business days.)
  • You'll send us the next segment (up to 10 minutes) of audio that you processed on your own. We'll check your work!

We can work with:

  • TwistedWave for Mac (not iOS)
  • Sony SoundForge Pro for Windows
  • Adobe Audition 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 connect you with someone who's an expert on the DAW of your choice.
