2. 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 length of the text and the pace of the narrator, recording a single chapter can take about an hour. We maintain a consistent tone and style by recording chapters in one go. If a mistake is made, the narrator repeats the previous sentence while recording continues, with the sound engineer marking the error for later correction.
After recording, the audio is sent to editing, accompanied by any director’s notes to guide the sound engineer’s work. ISRC required.
3. Audio Editing and Cleanup
The editing stage of production is where we assemble, refine, and polish your audio to guarantee a clear and immersive listening experience. Our sound engineers use advanced software tools and their expertise to address potential audio issues such as:
Pacing of narration
4. Meeting ACX Requirements: Ensuring Flawless Distribution
To be distributed on platforms like Audible/ACX, audio files must meet specific formatting requirements. Non-compliance can result in the rejection and reworking of the audiobook. These specifications include consistent 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 ambient tone at the beginning and end, and the narrator must state the chapter or section name at the start. If a chapter exceeds 120 minutes, it must be split into two audio files and labeled accordingly.
Once the audio files are edited, we begin proofreading to ensure there are no mistakes.
5. Verification Process: Listening with a Critical Ear
Audiobook verification is a meticulous process that involves critical and in-depth listening to the edited audiobook, ideally using headphones to replicate the listener’s experience. This review is performed chapter by chapter, with feedback added as necessary or approval granted for mastering. On average, proofing requires about 1.5 hours per hour of finished audiobook.
During verification, we listen for repeated sentences, consistency in narration, erroneous sounds, mispronunciations, gaps in sections, editing errors, and the sounds of pages turning.
6. The Mastering Stage: The Final Touch
Once audio editing and proofreading are completed, the audiobook moves to the mastering stage. This is where all the audio files are assembled, and the audio is mastered to meet the specifications required by the publishing service. This process involves ensuring a consistent tone, a consistent level per file, sample rate conversion, correcting problematic frequencies, and adding the required metadata and ISRC codes.
