Are there any companies that will edit a recording for you?

Continuing the discussion from Save Noise Profile When Saving Project:

Are there any companies that will clean up a recording for you?

There are people on Fiverr who do audio editing,
but I would not part with money until I had a sample from them showing they could do the job.
[ The result you want may not be achievable by anyone ].

And if I was on the other side of the deal… The guy hired to do the clean-up… I wouldn’t take-on a job like that for the same reason. The client may not be happy with the results.

I don’t know how bad the noise is but “bad recordings” can’t always be fixed, even with the latest pro software. (This should be changing soon with AI.) Noise is the “last remaining problem” and the soundproof studio is the main thing that separates a pro studio from a good home studio.

And, I’d charge about as much as a plumber. Bob Katz charges $200 an hour for mastering (which might include some slight noise reduction) and he says it takes an average of 5-6 hours to master a CD, so that’s around 1/2 hour per song. That’s reasonable since he’s going to listen-through before working on it, do the “work”, and then check/listen-through again. This stuff is TIME CONSUMING!
