Recording An Audio Book

audio book

This is a picture of the individual files of my audio book…

The recording took several hours to capture, reading a book aloud and recording it with headphones on really focuses the mind on the pronunciation…

The hardware I use is a TASCAM DR-40 audio recorder, with an MXL 990 microphone…

Here’s the TASCAM..

And here is the Microphone…

That combination is fabulous, you’ll capture a wonderful studio quality audio recording…

For the editing I use Reaper software, which is a very cost effective multi-track audio editing solution…

I’ve used a noise gate plug-in and an audio compressor to even out the levels of my voice…

I’m now adding the audio book to my Academy Membership area for my paying clients.
