Editing Audio Books or Book Promos

 

 

Editing

Editing your sound track means you can filter out unwanted noise and cut pauses or errors. You can also add special effects such as music fading out at the beginning of your introduction, then fading in again at the end of the recording.

Set up

Always record about 10 seconds of ambient background noise at the begging so you can use this to set filters to get rid of it during editing.

Filtering

  1. Filter out unwanted noise. Apply the following filters in the order given:
    1. Normalise > Normal
    2. Noise Reduction > Multi-Band Noise Gating (the better quality option introduces strange background distortion which this option does not)
    3. Equalizer > High Pass (default settings)

Exporting Audio Files

Export as a high quality file (like .wav). Then you can copy to covert to lower quality mp3 files that are more compressed and better for use online and for users to upload onto mp3 players
