Hello there I am an Italian VO artist, I’m fairly new to record on my own at home.
The issue I am experiencing is this: I record my audio, (mostly commercial material, so not too long) and I usually record it few times in one track. When I check for ACX standards it passes. No problem.
However when I start the editing, deleting room tone at the beginning or at the end, deleting two of the readings to leave the best one, deleting mouth noises or breathing, the ACX standards are all messed up and my track doesn’t pass the ACX test anymore.
As it is suggested in the forum I always apply the effects: limiter, loudness normalization and filter curve.
How can I edit without encountering this issue and keep the ACX standards in place throughout the entire track?
Thank you so so so much. I really appreciate any help.
Thank you so much Doug. I will try to record 2 to 4 sec room tone and do the mastering after the recording.
What is failing for me is the editing. Once I record the entire script in audacity, I go to “analyze” check ACX and it passes everything, but the problem comes when I edit it. Removing room tone at the beginning and at the end screws up the RMS, peaks and noise floor.
It’s either the RMS too quiet or the noise floor became too loud.
