If your looking for an experienced professional to be your Audiobook Editing partner, let's talk! I've recorded, edited and mixed thousands of narration projects over my 25 years as an Audio Engineer - Pro Tools editor. (I've been working with Pro Tools since it was invented…Really!) I hope to connect with other Studios and Voice Actors who are looking for a dependable Audio Editor to help them out. I do this full time, this is not a hobby. Let's get to work on that book! -Rates for editing punched in, or "clean" recordings is $80.00 Per finished hour (PFH). That includes Mastering. Please note: I'm easy to work with and not that strict about "punched in" or "punch & roll" recordings. If you do the occasional pickup or false start, that's fine. -Rates for editing multi take, or non "punched in" recording is.... well... Negotiable :) The nature of Audiobooks is a very intimate and revealing aural experience for the listener. There can be many distracting sounds such as lip smacks, wet mouth, dry mouth, obtrusive breaths, P-Pops, etc. Poor editing and mastering can make the listening experience hard to endure and enjoy. Harsh frequency's, too much compression, bad edits, can pull the listeners attention away from the story. My goal as your Editor/Mixer is to have a final product that can be listened to for an extended period, without listener fatigue or distractions. Studio: I'm using the latest version "Pro Tools 12" with many Voice specific tools and plugins available from: Massey, FabFilter,, iZotope RX4, Waves, Sonnex, Soundtoys, Softube, Slate Digital, etc. ------------------------------ Audio Samples: Samples at the top are Audiobooks. Others are projects I've recorded, edited and "mastered" in my home studio "Lakeview Audio". I've had the good fortune of working with some fantastic Voice Talent, both recorded locally in my own isolation booth, and internationally via ISDN / Source Connect. Some History: I started Lakeview Audio in 2004. From 1988 to 2003 I was Chief Audio engineer at SR Audio & Cinemedia Productions, a commercial recording studio doing work for advertising agencies, video production companies, indie films, etc. Please feel free to contact me anytime, Thanks! : davealbert@me.com , 515-278-2964 Dave Albert www.lakeviewaudio.com
