Examples of some recent audio repairs:

1. Background Noise

Recording on location comes with its own set of challenges. The microphone's placement, the room's acoustics, background noise like air conditioning, and more, all influence the quality of your recording.

Check out this example to see how these issues were resolved after a client reached out to Just Ask Robbo.

2.  Clipping

Understanding gain is crucial when recording. It is a fancy Audio word for the amount the audio from your microphone is increased by the equipment you are recording on. If the gain is set too high, you might not notice it in your headphones, but your recording could be clipping, which means it's too loud and distorts on your device.

The good news, though: an audio engineer can sometimes fix this. Like when you reach out to Just Ask Robbo for help.

3.  Mixing

For the clearest podcast interviews, it's ideal if each person records their own audio. This way, you can adjust each speaker's volume for perfect harmony. But sometimes, you might have no choice but to record everyone on one track, making edits tricky. Like trying to unmix paint, once different sounds are recorded together, separating them later can be quite a challenge

There are some things you can do to help it along tho if you just ask Robbo.

After:
