The Editing Process

Well, first of all, my computer is now 100% built! And it's a BIG improvement for the editing! Anyways, that said, let's get down to the main stuff of this blog post.

So, I'm going to explain the process of the editing:


1:   Download files (podcast episode, intro, and outro) from Dropbox/Google Drive (depending on client)

2:   Start and finish editing the episode and save it as finished

3:   Start and finish editing the intro and outro

4:   Apply intro and outro music (again, depending on the client)

5:   Apply intro and outro to the podcast episode

6:   Send to the client!


Phew! I guess that wasn't much of an explanation...

But deeper into it, I'd edit the podcast and then my dad would go over it to get any little mistakes I missed.

Well, I guess that's it! (Yep, a super short one this time...only 142 words!)



New Computer

This past week my dad and I ordered parts to build a computer, in which my brother has been building (I'm not the "computer savvy' type, so I have no idea how to build one!). The reason we're getting the computer is because my current computer has been slowing down with each podcast I download (each one is around 800 MB!), and it takes about 10-30 minutes to download, whereas a regular computer would only take a few seconds to a minute. Plus, my computer is about 2-3 years old, so it probably won't last much longer with all the files pressuring it down.

So, it was time to get a new and more powerful computer... except the motherboard had some bent pieces, so we had to return it for a new one, which we are waiting for. When it does come, we'll be able to tackle any podcast (well, maybe any...).

Info About my Web

Well, we've been working on Quail Audio, and now I have to upload samples so that clients know what what we do and how good we are. My dad's been helping me finish the website. It'll be launched my the end of this month. 

As I said, I have to upload some sample audio pieces. Here are a few of the ones I've chosen:

This is before it's been edited:

This is after it's been edited:

Well, those are some samples of what I'm doing.

We have a whole page devoted to showing what we do, sample audios and the process of editing.
next, we have another page showing the prices (which we haven't figured out yet).
We were thinking if the episode is under 30 minutes, $1 per minute, and if it's over 30 minutes, then $1.50 per minute.

My brother is helping with website and making little changes here and there. He's very experienced and has made websites in the past for other people.

New Podcast Website!

Hi! As you probably know from previous posts, I've been doing podcast editing. Well, soon I'm going to start my own business!

I'll be naming it 'Quail Audio', and the logo will be a lot like my profile picture for Voice of Simeon, but black and white.

Unfortunately, the domain called 'QuailAudio.com' is already taken, but we were thinking of 'QuailAudioEditing.com' instead, which is not taken.

I've been making my website on SquareSpace and I'm about halfway through finishing it.

I can't wait until we can launch Quail Audio!
