Edited Songs

My Process

Since dealing with vinyl records is very different to podcast files, work on these songs was done entirely in Audition. I used the stock noise reduction and click and pop removal tools to take care of most of the noise, keeping as much of the music as possible. I also applied some light compression to make sure any peaks trimmed down. For the videos, I used either iMovie or Final Cut Pro X to assemble some quick backgrounds with text, or a slideshow of various pictures, all with the music playing underneath.
