Our production process begins with a thorough review of your manuscript. We identify key characters, narrative structure, and any specific accents to be incorporated in the narration. We work closely with you, the author, to ensure your vision guides our production process.
Quality Casting and Narration
We provide auditions for a range of voice actors from our pool of professionals, allowing you to choose the voice that best fits your work.

The Voice Narrator at LenseUp plays a pivotal role in our audiobook production process. Our narrators are typically seasoned voice actors, bringing a wealth of experience and a natural aptitude for expressive reading. There are instances, particularly with non-fiction titles, where the author’s voice lends authenticity to the narration, and we facilitate this as well.
Our narrators are selected for their compelling vocal qualities, including an extensive range of inflection and intonation, mastery over numerous accents, and the ability to convincingly portray various characters within a book. Once the script text is approved, the recording process commences, transforming the written words into a vibrant auditory experience.
With advancements in technology, we’re able to offer even more options for our clients. LenseUp leverages state-of-the-art technologies to provide synthetic or cloned voices. These digitally created voices offer an additional layer of flexibility, enabling us to cater to a wider range of stylistic preferences and project requirements.
Multi-Voices and Artificial Intelligence: Transforming Storytelling
The use of multi-voices in an audiobook can significantly enhance the depth and dynamism of a story. It offers the potential to create a distinctive voice for each character, bringing them to life in the mind of the listener. This approach can transform a simple audiobook into a vibrant and engaging audio drama, captivating audiences in a way that single-voice narratives often can’t.
Artificial intelligence plays a key role in this transformation. AI technology can generate a multitude of unique, synthetic voices, each with their own character and tone. This allows for even greater flexibility and diversity in voice casting, particularly for stories with a large cast of characters or those requiring specific accents or speech patterns.
Choosing LenseUp as your partner in this innovative venture ensures you benefit from our extensive experience and cutting-edge technology. We have a proven track record in seamlessly integrating multi-voice recordings and AI-generated voices into our audiobook production process. Our dedicated team works with you to understand the unique requirements of your story and brings it to life with unparalleled precision and creativity. With LenseUp, you’re not just creating an audiobook; you’re crafting an enthralling auditory experience that will leave your audience eagerly awaiting the next chapter.

Production services of an audiobook: the process
At LenseUp, we take pride in offering a comprehensive suite of audiobook production services. These services include:
. meticulous text preparation
. professional voice narrator casting (voice actor or synthetic voice)
. high-quality voice recording
. precision audio editing, thorough proofing, expert audio mastering, and efficient distribution.
Each stage is executed with meticulous attention to detail, ensuring your narrative is brought to life in the most compelling manner.
1. Audiobook Recording: A Mastery of Precision and Quality
The recording of an audiobook necessitates a highly controlled environment, typically a soundproof booth within a recording studio. Given the voice-centric nature of the final product, it’s crucial to eliminate any potential background noise. To achieve this, we utilize facilities explicitly designed for voice recording, offering the utmost in quiet and soundproofing.
At LenseUp, we prioritize a seamless recording process. To avoid disruptions such as page turns or paper rustling, we opt for digital formats, presenting the book text on devices like tablets or iPads. This practice not only promotes a smooth recording session but also reduces the post-production workload for our audio engineers.
The quality of the final audio production is paramount, particularly as audiobook distributors and online platforms enforce rigorous specifications. At LenseUp, we take every measure to ensure your audio is of exceptional quality, adhering to industry standards.
2. The Recording Process: An Art and a Science
Our voice actors typically record the book in segments, often chapter by chapter, with scheduled breaks. Depending on the text length and narrator’s pace, a single chapter can take roughly an hour to record. We maintain a consistent tone and style by recording chapters in one go. Should a mistake occur, the narrator resumes from the preceding sentence while the recording continues, with the audio engineer marking the error for later correction.
Post-recording, the audio is sent for editing, accompanied by any notes from the director to guide the audio engineer’s work.
3. Audio Editing and Cleanup
The production editing stage is where we assemble, refine, and polish your audio, ensuring a clear and immersive listening experience. Our audio engineers utilize advanced software tools and their expertise to address potential audio issues such as:
– Narration pacing
– Mouth clicks
– Excessive breaths
– Background noise
– Page turn sounds
– Rustling noises
4. Meeting ACX Requirements: Ensuring Seamless Distribution
For distribution on platforms like Audible/ACX, the audio files must meet specific formatting requirements. Non-compliance could lead to rejection and reworking of the audiobook. These specifications include uniform sound, opening and closing credits, mono or stereo files, and a retail audio sample. Each file should contain one chapter with a few seconds of room tone at the start and end, and the narrator must state the chapter or section’s name at the outset. If a chapter exceeds 120 minutes, it must be split into two audio files and labeled accordingly.
Once the audio files are edited, we commence proofing to ensure there are no errors.
5. Proofing Process: Listening with a Critical Ear
Audiobook proofing is a meticulous process that involves critically and thoroughly listening to the edited audiobook, ideally through headphones to mimic the listener’s experience. This review is conducted chapter by chapter, with comments added as necessary or approval granted for mastering. On average, proofing requires about 1.5 hours per finished hour of the audiobook.
During proofing, we listen for repeated phrases, consistent narration, erroneous sounds, mispronunciations, gaps in sections, editing mistakes, and page-turn sounds.
6. The Mastering Stage: The Final Touch
After the audio editing and proofing stages are complete, the audiobook enters the mastering stage. Here, all audio files are assembled, and the audio is mastered to meet the required specifications of the publishing service. This process involves ensuring a uniform tone, consistent level per file, sample rate conversion, fixing problematic frequencies, and adding required metadata and ISRC codes.
