'It's tricky when you're doing a recording, because the only weapon you have is your voice and the delivery of that voice . . . Everything needs to be present in the voice. Joyce DiDonato
We always check that what we have read exactly matches what you have written and that there are no errors, fluffs or hesitations in the audio we deliver to you.
We manually remove any intrusive noises such as mouth clicks or loud breaths, we check all the timings and the flow to ensure that everything makes sense and, if we are delivering multiple files, we also check ensure that they are all matched technically.
We will discuss the various editing options with you before beginning work on your project, but apart from audiobooks, would normally deliver fully finished and mastered audio to clients unless otherwise requested.
We will supply an MP3 version as evaluation or for you to share with colleagues to review, but normally deliver finished projects in a high quality lossless audio format, such as AIFF, WAVE or FLAC, as MP3 is a lossy format and will be subject to audio degradation of files are edited, opened and re-saved.
We have a small library of stock music for which we hold the license and can add this music if required at a small additional cost. Commercial music (if the licence is available) can be impossibly expensive, so please don't expect us to be able to add the latest hit or even an old favourite without entailing a significant cost.
