In the first example, HH, you can hear a kind of muffled quality and some sharp higher frequencies in the BEFORE. In the AFTER, the voice is more clear and comfortable to listen to. In the MIX, you can hear how it sits in the music naturally and is easily heard. This MIX contains sound effects of nature to enhance the relaxation process. The music was custom scored to this meditation.
In the second example CM, you can hear a brittle and piercing quality amidst a naturally warm voice. This is because because of the poor microphone choice. Also you can hear a lot of mouth noises which is distracting. In the AFTER, the voice is warm, smooth and no mouth clicks! The MIX is with binaural-beats and ambient music where it all feels and sounds like a blended but clear sound experience.
Schedule a brief call with me to discuss your project! Please select the day and time that works best for you.
During our call, we will discuss the goals of your project so I can understand what you want to achieve specifically. The adjustments that I make to your audio will be at a professional level equal to what you hear in films and TV shows. But, within that standard, the choices I make will be based on the goal of your project, not my personal preference. I am here to bring out the best in your art!

Please send me uncompressed, full resolution (either 16bit or 24bit) audio files recorded at 44.1kHz or higher. No mp3 or m4a files, these are compressed and missing audio data. Any recording software will export (or ‘Bounce’ as it can be called) full-resolution audio.
Name your audio files accurately so they are not named ‘Audio 01’ but rather ‘Meditation for Healing_Narration’ or “Meditation-Dropping In Section”…things like that.
You can send up to 2GB of files for free via Wetransfer.com, and it does not require a login.
PRODUCING – $100 per 10-minutes
If your meditation is 20-minutes long, the price would be $200. If we have worked together before and you want to use the same ‘dropping in/relaxing’ section from a previous meditation for a new meditation, then I only charge for the NEW audio that I produce. EXAMPLE: 10-minutes of a ‘dropping in’ section that I have previously worked on gets added to a new meditation body that is 15-minutes long. I place that intro 10-minutes in front of the new 15-minutes, and only charge you for the 15-minutes, not the total 25-minutes.
VOICE EDITING – $85/hr
If you need to record alternate versions, for example a pregnancy meditation where you need a version for ‘mothers’ and a version for ‘parents, then I advise you record the sentence with the alternate word at the same time, twice. Instead of recording the meditation twice, just record it once. When you get to the sentence that contains either ‘mother/parent’, say that sentence once with ‘mother’ and immediately say that sentence again with ‘parent’, and then continue your mediation recording. Repeat that every time a sentence that has alternate words in them. I can easily edit it all so you end up with two version of the same meditation that you only recorded once. This will save you time and money. Another reason to have me edit your narration, is if you just aren’t sure which takes you like of the same meditation, send them to me and I’ll put it together for you into one master mediation.
MUSIC EDITING – $100/music track
Sometimes music you want to use back-to-back just doesn’t fit very well. I can make it fit REALLY well by creating musical transitions between the two songs. Also, maybe a song is great but its too short, or it has a section that just isn’t right but the rest is perfect, I edit that and make it sound natural, as if the song was always done that way.
COMPOSING – $400/minute of music
For those that want the premium experience to use music that no one else has, I can create music, and sound design, unique for your mediation. It takes a lot of time to compose, arrange, record, mix, and master, high quality music, therefore this is for big budget projects. I can also create custom sound design, any sounds you wish such as rivers, trains, wind, rain, ocean, fairies, magical worlds, etc to add to your meditation experience.
