Nemanja Bakovic on SoundBetter

Seamless audio restoration, suited to each client individually. Working with top-notch companies like Adobe. Ready to make your audio sparkling clean, noise-free and professional sounding.

Do you have audio that doesn't sound good?
Let's prepare it and make it into a useful material.

I specialize in background noise reduction, audio clean up, restoration and things alike.

The audio might have lots of background noise, hiss, wind, buzz, chatter or any other unwanted interference. Maybe you think that nothing can even be salvaged from it?
There are ALWAYS things that could be done, and I can help you fix it.

Many editors will approach projects by cleaning up all of the unwanted sounds, not paying attention to details and not thinking ahead in perspective of the final product.

That's the recipe for getting even worse audio quality than what you started with.

The goal of every audio clean up and especially noise removal is - transparency of results, and preserving the wanted sound natural.

- Balance is the key -

If you want to make sure your material reaches it's full potential, and you are looking for any kind of audio work - contact me with details of your project, and I'd be glad to discuss.

  1. Review by Aimee C.

    I sent Nemanja and incredibly hard task and he really did a brilliant job. He turned a disaster of an interview recording into something I can now work with for broadcast. Thank you!

Interview with Nemanja Bakovic

  1. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  2. A: Open-mindedness and Balance

  3. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  4. A: With artists that don't have a bunch of tracks on their songs. I'm enjoying the "one instrument and voice" style of music.

  5. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  6. A: Dialogue editing and audio restoration.

  7. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  8. A: Synyster Gates Ed Sheeran

  9. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  10. A: A project with couple of meditation videos out in the wild with a lot of cicadas and crickets in the background. Considering the starting sound point and the seamless end result - even I was impressed.

  11. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  12. A: Podcast ; Old classes restoration ; Voice-over clean up, stutter reduction and music mixing ; Piano lessons videos - reverb and noise clean up ;

  13. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  14. A: Digital. Smoother with more options.

  15. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  16. A: I always promise the best end result for that particular file. I always stand by my words and didn't disappoint so far.

  17. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  18. A: The end result. Salvaging someones audio into a professional or at least usable file feels good.

  19. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  20. A: "How much will it cost?" "How long will it take?" "Can it be with a completely silent background?" Etc. The answer to all of these depends on the state of the audio and issues within. One thing is for sure - you always get realistic answers from me.

  21. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  22. A: The "perfect" edit. In restoration, perfection is different sounding.

  23. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  24. A: As much details as they can provide about the issue and file. Where was it recorded and with what equipment? Is there maybe a higher quality file than the lower quality one they shared? What are their expectations? Where will the file be played, e.g. through what device?

  25. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  26. A: Be relaxed and trustful because you and your money are fully protected on sites like this.

  27. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  28. A: 1. Electric guitar 2. Acoustic guitar 3. Classical guitar 4. Amp 5. A small ship blueprint

  29. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
