Hey! Let's work together to enrich your podcast so your listeners get more engaged and YOU get more (and better) reviews. Send me a message and we can discuss.

Let me tell you about some usual "flaws" I hear in 90% of podcasts:

- The obvious "elephant in the room" - overall quality.
It is unbelievable how many podcasts I've heard had editing leftovers, so called "artifacts". This happens when editing is pushed way too far, so the natural recording is almost completely lost. If we have quality issue to this extent, I'd rather consult you about recording setup and equipment than ruining the episode with too much editing.

- Background music gets WAY to loud. It's "fighting" the voice.
My solution is much smoother, with fade ins and fade outs, plus special attention to the flow of the whole podcast.

- Inconsistency.
The way I like to work is with a 'template' of prepared parts that are always used in a podcast (intro, outro, ad, disclaimers etc.) and then just 'stitch' in new edited parts (interviews, guest intros and outros etc.). It gives the listeners much more consistency (people like expected things) and it makes your podcast instantly recognizable.

Bring your podcast to a whole new level of quality.
Let the professional take care of it while you focus on growing your business.

Please introduce yourself and make sure to message me the details of your podcast - I'll be glad to discuss.

    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!

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

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

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

  10. 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?

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

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

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

  14. 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.

  15. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  16. A: Digital. Smoother with more options.

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

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

  19. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  20. A: 1. Podcast editing / mixing / mastering. 2. Any form of audio restoration and clean up. Removal of noises such as buzz, hum, hiss, distortion, clicks, crackle and more.

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

  22. A: The end result. Salvaging someones audio into a professional or at least usable file feels good. Also, helping someone sound professional is a reward for itself.

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

  24. A: I always promise the best end result for that particular file. I always make sure to give 100% effort. I always stand by my words and didn't disappoint so far.

  25. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  26. A: Dialogue (Voice) editing.

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

  28. A: I believe I'm bringing different approach to editing. It's not all moving sliders, sometime improvisation goes a long way.

  29. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  30. A: Leave headroom.

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

  32. A: A solo artist. I enjoy songs with one instrument + voice.

  33. Q: What's your typical work process?

  34. A: Evaluating the issues in the audio. Combining processes for the seamless results. Mixing other parts in (if needed). Getting back to client and listening for feedback and revisions. Finalizing.

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

  36. A: It all started by editing my guitar recordings around 2009. Eventually I got so excited about the end results I was getting from my (very noisy) recordings so I expanded to dialogue, voice editing - training, listening, experimenting and eventually learning the craft of audio editing. In the past couple of years it transitioned into a serious job and I'm freelancing since.

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

  38. A: A project with couple of 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.

  39. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  40. A: Guitars and Bass guitars. Usually removing buzz, hiss, fret noises and squeaks.

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

  42. A: The whole iZotope software team.
