“I thought that cards were a frame-up
I never would try.”
The good news is I got the raw performance to pass reasonably easily. It even sounds human. So there’s the first two poles of performance success (the third one is client satisfaction).
Apparently, you did, too, but I did it in one fewer steps. I did one noise reduction at 9, 6, 6. There’s an audiobook directive that states use the fewest corrections possible. ACX has a failure called “Overprocessing.” You can’t get there by beating your voice with a stick.
Even better, the overall raw performance volume comes in at about -9dB which is at the lower end of -6 to -9 presenting recommendation. So just pump the microphone volume knob up a bit and you should be good to go.
We should address your studio noise. I can easily make your noise reading much better by carefully filtering out a 120Hz hum tone you have somewhere in the room.
The 120Hz tone (low organ pedal) is probably coming from your air conditioning or heating or possibly a refrigerator or freezer. If you can identify that and turn it off during performances, it will make it easier for the other tools and filters to do their job.
Effect > Equalizer should not be flatten. It should be Low Rolloff for Speech.
And it should go first, not last. It’s job is to eliminate room and building noises before the other tools have to deal with them. Your raw clip has significant thunder/earthquake noises in it that vanish after application of Low Rolloff for Speech
I don’t hear any echoes or recording in a bathroom noises, so that’s a major advance right there.
What did the wine-glass/cellphone sound turn out to be? I don’t hear any remnants of it.
