How to create a professional sounding audiobook

Creating a good audiobook is fun and challenging at the same time. For first time producers it can be quite daunting. Here are some basic steps to help you produce a crisp, clean and professional sounding audiobook.

Decide who is going to voice it: Are you going to voice your own audiobook? You definitely can, but before you record, it is better to learn to record good voice overs. If you are planning to hire someone else to voice it, there are tons of VO artists available who can do a fantastic recording.

A nice piece of classical music can be soothing, but if your dog starts barking in your ears, then you might lose that soothing feeling. Psychoacoustics is basically the study of these psychological and physiological interactions with sound. Obviously, the way a sonata makes us feel is entirely different than the way Rover’s yap makes us feel.

Birmingham Recording Studio

I set up a London recording studio business almost 10 years ago and have worked with thousands of musicians in that time, something I consider to be a real privilege. Recently I have been looking at opening a recording studio in Birmingham, it makes sense from a business point of view because Birmingham has a very vibrant music community.

The introduction of a Birmingham recording studio to our company is exciting but I am very keen to get the right producer on board. After years of producing I think I know what musicians want from a recording studio but I see a great opportunity in asking you guys what you consider important.
