Alright, so I’ve ran into one problem I’m sure I’ll run into a billion times. I read an audition script, I made many mistakes. One of the mistakes was that I thought I had a decent reading of a line, but when I played it back I hated it. I hit the record button and tried again. I liked what I got this time, and I pasted it into the proper spots.
However, when I played through sentence one, and newly recorded sentence two, I did not like it at all. Sentence two was probably recorded in a slightly different position. It was louder by a very obvious margin. As a test, I applied audio book mastery to the two sections. Low rolloff for speech, RMS normalization, limiter. It still sounded out of place. The volumes were now similar, but the second clip had an extra…warmth to it? I don’t know how to call it.
I’ve figured out a way to get roughly similar recordings by tapping my forehead to the blanket on the top of my home made sound resistant cube thing. I ended up rerecording the whole audition and I’ve had better results with adding in newly recorded audio since. How would I fix this problem in the first scenario though?
