ACX requires finished retail-ready audio—rough, unedited narration won't cut it. Whether you’re new to audiobook performance or are a seasoned narrator hoping to become a more proficient producer, study up on our ACX Audio Submission Requirements, and then watch these helpful video tutorials to see exactly how to get that high-quality result. Then, visit the ACX blog for even more video instruction.
The room you record in will have a massive influence on your finished work. A great set-up will allow you to quickly and efficiently produce audiobooks that sound great, while a poor set-up will make your work very hard and can ruin otherwise great performances.
Of course, the equipment you use is important, too, but if you’re on a budget, spend more on getting the room right than on top-end gear.
Putting together your first home studio can be a daunting task. To help make this easier for you, ACX has compiled an Amazon wish list containing much of the gear you’ll need to get started. All products are highly rated by the audiobook-producing community.
