I have come across an interesting tool from Adobe. It's called Adobe Podcast and it's currently in Beta. Adobe say that "Enhance Speech increases clarity by removing background noise and sharpening your voice’s frequencies. It makes it sound as if everything was recorded in a professional studio." PiXimperfect has a video about it. The video is called "Adobe AI: Make trash audio sound like studio recording!" (https://youtu.be/cWdOsO92gCY). The tool can be found on the Adobe website at https://podcast.adobe.com/ My initial feeling is that this tool could potentially be a real revolution for the home studio. I suspect that it will have some limitations but I think it's worth giving it a try. I haven't tried it yet. However, I definitely plan to. At the moment the tool seems to be free. I wonder how much Adobe will eventually charge for it.
Thanks guys for helping me select the book cover. I am really happy with it. The Guy I selected on Fiverr was really great and I will definitely be using him again. I am excited to be working on this book and will be releasing it no later that March!
I have been thinking about practising reading. Essentially I plan to just practice reading so that I can get use to my recorded voice. I am not worried about the quality if these practice recordings. So I have an idea. My phone has a recorder on it. So I can just record myself reading using my phone. This would enable me to have practice sessions while I am on lunch break. What do you think of this idea?
