Specialized Audio Enhancement Services for Family Lawyers & Private Investigators

Our specialized services in audio enhancement aim to refine and improve audio by reducing extraneous noise and enhancing the clarity of key content, particularly speech. We undertake this task by minimizing ambient noise that interferes with dialogue. In the context of legal evidence, our focus is on making speech as clear and intelligible as possible versus media post-production, where the objective is to deliver a clean audio output by removing any unwanted elements. Our goal is to ensure that your audio files contain clear and understandable speech, particularly in legal cases where evidence is crucial.

Audio Quality Enhancement

We isolate and modify individual sound elements within your audio recording using state-of-the-art sound processing tools, including specialized algorithms, or manually editing sounds when viewed as a spectrograph, allowing for a more comprehensive noise suppression or targeted removal.

Once cleaned, we then enhance the audio, which involves filtering out frequencies beyond the voice spectrum and applying equalization and compression techniques to boost speech clarity. We also mitigate echoes and reverberation that often make speech less clear. Finally, we carefully adjust equalization and compression levels to improve quiet parts of the speech.

The audio enhancement process requires expertise and a keen ear for sound, as an excessive or improper application of processing can negatively affect the quality of the recording. Only a trained audio professional can apply these techniques correctly to ensure the highest level of speech intelligibility.

Please Note:

It’s important to note that any audio or video enhancement service’s effectiveness depends on the quality of your original recording. While significant improvements can be achieved with uncompressed WAV audio files recorded at standard sampling rates, files recorded with compression codecs like MP3 or at low sampling rates may have limitations in uncovering very low-level dialogue, this includes low-resolution image and video files. Nevertheless, we always strive to deliver the best possible results within the given constraints.

We invite you to reach out to us to discuss your project requirements. Our team is dedicated to providing personalized advice and tailored solutions to ensure the best possible outcome for your audio and video enhancement needs.

Complex Sound Removal

The general noise reduction process for podcast editing typically involves removing background hiss or hum and minor incidental noises. More complex and intrusive noises often require additional time and expertise to remove effectively without damaging the overall audio quality. Here are some examples of complex sounds that require additional time and cost:

1. Construction Noise: Sounds of drilling, hammering, or machinery can be particularly challenging to remove.

2. Lawn Mowers: These outdoor noises can intrude on your recording and require specialized removal techniques.

3. Car Horns: Sudden and loud car horns can disrupt the flow of your podcast and be difficult to eliminate.

4. Phone Ringing: An unexpected ring during recording can prove tricky to remove, especially if it overlaps with speech.

5. Air Conditioning or Fan Noise: The variable frequencies of these background sounds can make them harder to eliminate.

6. Sirens: The changing pitch and volume of emergency vehicle sirens can be difficult to remove effectively.

7. Dog Barks or Birdsong: Animal noises, especially when loud or close to the microphone, can pose a challenge.

8. Door Slams or Footsteps: Sudden, loud noises like these can interfere with speech and prove tough to remove.

9. Planes or Helicopters: The low, rumbling noise of overhead aircraft can be hard to eliminate.

10. Echo or Reverb: Room acoustics causing a voice to echo can be very tricky to remove.

11. Appliances: Sounds from kitchen appliances, like a refrigerator hum or a microwave beep, may require complex sound removal techniques.

12. Music or TV Sounds: Background music or television sounds can be extremely challenging to remove without affecting the voice track.

13. Intrusive Sounds During Speech: If a loud noise occurs at the same time as the speaker is talking, it can be especially difficult to remove without distorting the speech.

Audiobook Dialogue Editing Service FAQs

Hiring a professional audio editing service ensures that your audiobook receives meticulous attention to detail and high-quality post-production. Professionals have the expertise and specialized tools to enhance audio clarity, remove unwanted noise, and create a seamless and engaging listening experience.

The audiobook post-production process typically includes tasks such as editing out mistakes or errors, removing background noise or unwanted sounds, adjusting volume levels, ensuring consistency in tone and pacing, adding or adjusting music and sound effects, and mastering the final audio to achieve optimal sound quality.

We use industry-leading tools and software like iZotope RX to reduce background noise, eliminate unwanted artifacts, and ensure pristine audio recordings. The powerful Waves plugins further enhance your audio by providing precise control over equalization, dynamics, and spatial effects. We strive to deliver a final audio product ensuring crystal-clear sound that captivates listeners.

Yes, our audio editing service can address certain mistakes or errors made during the recording process. We can remove small errors, edit out unwanted noises, and make adjustments to ensure a smooth and cohesive listening experience. However, significant mistakes or issues related to the original recording quality may have limitations in correction during post-production.

When we proof your audiobook, we are diligently listening for a variety of potential issues, such as:

  1. Repeated Phrases: These are sections where the narrator might have repeated the same line or sentence twice.
  2. Consistent Narration: We pay attention to ensure that the tone, volume, pace, and overall delivery of the narration are consistent throughout the audiobook. Any inconsistencies can disrupt the listener’s engagement.
  3. Erroneous Sounds: These can be background noises, clicks, pops, plosives, or any other unwanted sound that may have been picked up during recording.
  4. Missed Pronunciations: We check to ensure that all words, especially those that are complex or uncommon, are pronounced correctly.
  5. Gaps in Sections: We ensure there are no unintended silence periods or overly lengthy pauses between sentences or sections.
  6. Editing Mistakes: We look out for any errors that may have occurred during the editing process, such as abrupt cuts, incorrect cross-fades, or unnatural-sounding edits.
  7. Page-Turn Sounds: These are noises made by turning pages of a script during recording. They can be distracting for listeners and need to be removed.

In essence, our proofing process is designed to ensure that your audiobook sounds professional, clean, and pleasant to listen to from start to finish.

The duration of the audio editing process depends on factors such as the length and complexity of the audiobook, the quality of the initial recordings, and the specific editing requirements. We strive to provide a reasonable turnaround time and can discuss timelines based on the specifics of your project. However, we strive to keep the turnaround time for most of our services 3 days for every 60 minutes of raw audio, excluding weekends and holidays. If you submit multiple media files simultaneously, they will be processed in the order they were submitted.
