Examples of possible audio editing

Every client requires different levels of audio editing based on their recording conditions and specific needs. From podcasters recording in acoustically treated rooms to those capturing audio on mobile phones in challenging environments, I tailor my editing services to meet each client's unique requirements. I prioritize communication with my clients to understand their needs fully and ensure they receive only the editing services they require. Below are some examples of the audio editing techniques I offer:

Audio examples

An example of some audio that was sent to me to edit, a hypnotherapy speech which was recorded on a mobile phone. A fan and other noises can be heard in the background, the small room had a lot of reverb, and there were other fixes to apply.

- Pt 1 compares the original audio against the repaired audio.
- Pt 2 compares again, with the original audio peak volume in creased to match the repaired audio (for a fair comparison).
- Pt 3 plays the original file again, and shows an example of what it could become.

(NOTE: there are large volume increases, please be aware).

An example of bespoke audio created for a client to create a relaxing environment for them to work in without causing distraction.

An example of some podcast audio I was asked to edit. The original audio was recorded over an online meeting platform. The intro music and speech is unbalanced. One speaker is much louder than the other. There are clicks and other noises in the background, and lots of room reverb.

- Pt 1 first compares the original audio against the repaired audio, with the original audio peak volume increased to match the repaired audio (for a fair comparison).
- Pt 2 compares again, first playing the original audio at the volume it was received at, then after the edited clip is played

(NOTE: there are volume increases, please be aware).
Client: theadhdadults.uk/

A client asked me to create intro music for an item on their podcast's Patreon subscriber content, pre-recorded body doubling sessions for people with ADHD.

The client had a title ("Getting S*** Done With Mrs ADHD") and gave free reign for everything else, as they were open to ideas. I asked the host to record a few phrases, including a list of jobs that they might need to get done in a day. This audio is the final result that they chose to use.
