> Adding EQ and light compression as necessary and needed will vary from one podcast to another due to differences in equipment and sound quality.
> Setting the perceived loudness level to the newly agreed industry standard for internet, mobile and podcast audio consumption (-16 LUFS).
> Inserting any provided audio branding elements and jingles into your podcast.
> Reducing breaths and microphone pops (where they are noticeable and impact on quality).
> Post producing any blips/mistakes (if you say something wrong and then correct yourself – although we would require clear markers in the audio or written notes (you can clap for example or create a 5-10 second pause between the takes).
> Noise removal where possible (if your podcast is recorded in a terrible recording environment – for example, live events or interviews).
> Where audio has been recorded as an interview, and there is a noticeable difference in audio quality – if possible – we will ensure the audio quality from the guest is improved in sound.
> ID3 tagging of each completed episode.
> Save the finished product in an audio format of your choice – usually MP3, 128 Kbps CBR, Stereo, 44100 Hz.
> The turnaround time for each episode will be 3-5 working days per episode.
