Ongoing Editing Production
The tiers are per episode so you can bump up a tier if a particular episode requires something extra.
All tiers include:
- Audio balance to ensure the volume of the episode is consistent across the track.
- Top and tailing of the recording
- Adding the intro and outro music to the start and end of the episode
- Uploading the episode to the required hosting service and scheduling it for release.
- Basic background noise removal for things like air conditioning
Basic: $35/episode + GST
- Single Recording session
- 3 edits to the recording where you can specify the time codes and I will make the edit
- For example phone ringing, coughing, saying the wrong name of a product etc
Advanced: $45/episode + GST
- Additional full background noise removal up to what is possible.
- For example traffic is very hard to remove due to the shift in sound. Wind can be tricky to remove but the results are generally very good.
- Shrinking of long pauses ‘dead air’ in the recording
- Creation of a snippet from the audio for social media sharing or use as a preroll (before the intro) teaser.
- 10 edits to the recording where you can specify the time codes and I will make the edit
- Extra edits are $2.2 each
- Advanced audio repair for things like echo/reverb, extremely quite or clipped sound.
- Add up to 2 extra music breaks like between a pre-recorded intro and the separately recorded main content.
Advanced+: $45/episode + $2/min for the first 30min then $1/min after that + GST
- Includes everything in the advanced tier
- I listen to the episode and edit out things that don’t add value to the episode.
- For example stammers, stutters, repeated word, excessive Ums/ahhs
