Recording Spoken Word - Compression & Format
- Member Since
- Nov 05, 2007
Hi, I'm in the process of taking 27 tracks I previously recorded and burning them to create a Master CD from which I will be making duplicate CD's that I will be selling as an audio companion to a course program.
I want the sound quailty to be high, so people don't complain, yet I don't want to create larger files than necessary.
I will also be making these tracks available for digital downloading so I don't want huge files if I can help it.
Ideally I would like to make these tracks, or portions thereof, available on iTunes - either as a free sample or directly for sale.
I would also like to have them on my website for people to listen to as a streaming audio -- or to purchase and download.
I don't know if I'll need to adjust the recordings for the different uses I desire - - -
The total track(s) time is 50 minutes and the total MB is 51.3.
The tracks are AAC audio files
Bit Rate 128 kbps
Sample Rate 44.100 kHz
Profile - Low Complexity
Encoded iTunes v 7.4.2 - Quick Time 7.2
Should I be recording the tracks in AAC format or some other format?
Are the above settings optimal for Spoken word tracks which have front and back music fade in & out?
If not what should they be?
I have Amadeus Pro - on my MacBook should I use this for future recordings of additional spoken Word audio tracks?
If so with what settings?
I will want to be able to import some of these tracks into Profcast - if you are familiar with that program are there any settings I should use with it?
Any other advice you can provide would be great, thanks!!!
