JMH Sound Design

Podcast & Dialogue Editing

Elevate your projects quality with crisp and clear audio.

Does your dialogue...

Have unwanted noise such as clicks and pops?

Sound unbalanced, harsh, or unclear?

Have excessive background noise?

We've got the tools to fix that.

Using an array of professional dialogue editing tools including software and analog equipment, we can provide you with dialogue that is clear, balanced, easy to listen to, and clean. Having professional sounding dialogue is almost a necessity. The human ear is extremely perceptive of frequencies involved in the production of the human voice – as such, it is vital that your dialogue is not abrasive, that there are no irregularities to break your audiences focus.

We offer a comprehensive podcast audio editing service, along with generalised dialogue editing for various purposes. This service includes consultations offering you advice and guidance for your recording setup and method, specialised dialogue editing along with podcast audio mixing & mastering, and dialogue post-production treatment. These services will leave you with audio that allows you to stand out from the competition.

As you work to growth your podcasts success, partnering yourself with a professional dialogue editing audio engineer is a surefire way of improving the quality of your project and accelerating your success to new heights.

With the introduction of this service, we are looking for passionate artists and creatives who have a desire for perfect audio. We have a limited availability for the number of podcast and dialogue editing projects we can accept each month. For the first 5 customers we are offering special discounted pricing for all podcast & dialogue editing services, with massive savings to be had when combining our consultation service with any of the listed packages.

About The Service

Our Podcast & Dialogue Editing service is unlike most services available. Your audio is not going to be treated by a podcast production expert, it will be treated by an expert audio engineer who understands every aspect of audio production. By choosing JMH Sound Design, you are choosing an audio engineering service that specialises in the meticulous analysis and treatment of audio, especially dialogue. We care about being able to provide the most all-round service, ensuring that we fix your audio issues from start to finish. That is why we, unlike other services, want to form a connection with our client before commencing work as we believe it leads to better results. Our consultation service not only allows you to gain an in-depth understanding about how to correctly record your dialogue, it helps to build rapport, trust, and alleviates any concerns about the process.

What is included in our services? We offer:

  • Removal of unwanted phrases and mouth noise (Umms and ahhs, lick smacking etc).
  • Treatment of background noise and optimisation of signal-to-noise ratio.
  • Post-production dialogue mixing including equalisation, compression, expansion, and limiting.
  • Overall level balance between audio elements (different guests, background music, etc).
  • Mixing in your desired background, intro, and outro music, along with ad audio.
  • Removal of audio artifacts such as clicks and pops.
  • Mastering of your podcasts final audio mix to industry standard levels, ensuring clarity.

And of course, we offer our incredibly beneficial consultation service as a stand-alone service or as part of a package deal. To understand more about why our consultation service may be the avenue to your audio success here is an excerpt from our Recording & Production service page:

“The recording & production stage is the most important stage of any project, the quality of your project is heavily dependent on the quality of your initial recordings – and the quality of your initial recordings is heavily dependent on the quality of your recording engineer.”

With our consultation service, we set out to teach you in the ways of recording dialogue so as you can act as a proficient recording engineer.

Additional Information

FAQ:

It’s simple! Send us the individual audio files of all of the different audio sources of your project. This would be the audio of individual voices, background music, intro & outro music, ad audio etc. This is covered in detail when you opt to begin work with us.

Yes, we do! This does, however, restrict the level of freedom available to edit and mix the audio, as the noise floor must not be tampered with in an uneven manner. The essential services are still applicable to audio synced with video.

The dialogue mixing process begins with a balance of the overall level of each speaker. Then a special formula of equalisation is applied. This brings out the characteristics of your voice that makes it unique. This is then followed by compression and limiting, along with negative expansion to stabilize the voice.

We discuss your recording environment and the equipment you use to record your audio. Suggestions are then made in regards to how you can go about improving the quality of your recordings; being mindful of your requirements, budget, and expectations. The consultation process is fairly free in terms of what is discussed, it exists to serve you and provide answers to your concerns and questions.

At JSD we have a trained audio engineer with an in-depth understanding of digital audio theory. This allows for true comprehension and an understanding of what processing needs to occur in order to bring out the full potential of recordings. The addition of the consultation service aims to address fundamental errors in recordings that are often ignored, and often cost clients more money for engineers to fix. We want you to create great recordings, it saves you money, and it also makes our job easier!

If the engineer you are working with is available, your needs will be met promptly. 24/7 support is not defined as immediate support at any hour of the day.
