I just finished my second audio book contract. I'm using Audacity as my editing platform and have turned out some pretty clean audio with it (enough so that I've been asked to record another book anyway)
Anyhow, I was wondering if you have any experience with audacity? When I compare my finished tracks with those I might hear on audible.com and other places, there is still a quality difference I can't quite seem to get a handle on. I know Audacity is a freebie and consequently I won't get the same quality I would from the high dollar editors, but I would like to try to get the absolute best I can get from it anyway.
Got any advice? Do you know of any tutorials on mastering with audacity I can get my hands on? I've googled and yahoo'd til my fingers ache and haven't been able to find anything about how to 'master' a voice track with audacity.
