Anyone can speak into a microphone. But what listeners hear needs to sound good as well. That's what production's all about
Narrating a book or recording a script is just the first step in vocal audio production. It can take up to two hours to record an hour of usable audio. It takes hours more to make it sound like an author hears their content or characters in their heads.
I devote most of my production efforts to the audiobooks I narrate myself. But if you have any type of vocal audio you'd just like to sound better, I deliver good results.
No different than when an author types a book's final period, it always feels good to narrate the final page. Then, the production work begins.
OwnMade Audiobook's promise to deliver a professionally produced audiobook requires many hours of fine tuning. From start to finish, the post-production process includes several steps.
1) Narrate the book.
2) Prepare a punch cut. Listen to the narration while following in the book to correct errors and improve pacing.
3) Create and process an audio plug-in chain to improve overall sound quality.
4) Listen to audio file again, manually making fine edits to soften sibilance and remove distracting noise artifacts.
5) Read and listen a final time, fixing minor problems that may remain after previous post-production processing.
6) Master the set of audio files to meet all technical specifications required to sell audiobooks on Audible.com.
