CCM Recording Studios in Denver Colorado are specialists in recording audio books.

We have thousands of hours of audiobook and voice over recording experience. With the emergence of Audible and YouTube, recording the spoken word is a specialized area that is hugely important.

The specialization of recording audiobooks and voice-over requires a breadth of experience that requires a different approach to recording sung vocals. This is because in audiobooks intelligibility takes over for musicality as the prime consideration. A good insight is that not every recording engineer or musician who thinks he is a “sound engineer” has the skill set to record or hear the sound/performance of your audiobook. You need a studio and engineer who has experience in this field.

SOMETHING TO CONSIDER

Where You Record Matters!

Humans are used to hearing our own voices in the context of typical domestic or workplace acoustics. But when we hear a professional recording of the human voice on an audiobook, we are hearing it in a professionally treated acoustical enviroment. Now recording studios aren't totally non-reverberant because that would sound unnatural, but it is essential for the reverberation time be short in order to maintain intelligibility of the spoken word. You must also eliminate sound from "ping-ponging" between parallel walls. Does your home, office, conference room, or home have this specialized acoustic treatment? Plus there is another component to making effective audio book recordings that you may be missing...experience.   Book your consulation ---> HERE so we can learn how we can help you get the best version of your audio book.
