    Hi everyone,

    Thought I would join and say hello.

    I am a Audio Producer in radio who has been looking for a new job for a few months now, and have decided I would try and start up my own freelance business.

    I’m focusing on Radio at the moment, but I’m hoping to shift that focus more towards Film and TV as I learn more.

    Great to be here guys, hope I can learn a bit.

    Hello Simon,

    Welcome aboard!

    Film and Tv ambitions.. you want to get into sound special effects and things like that?

    Welcome Valentine! I look forward to seeing your questions and advice around the forums.
    I used to present on hospital radio. I’m currently setting up radio interviews. I’m sat next to an EV RE20 mic and I’m having fun (?) getting a strong audio signal. The Cloudlifter has done wonders with the original signal, levels are great through the preamp and AD converter but then when it hits the PC, down it goes. In Audacity it’s -12dB and Camtasia, down further. Maybe there would be consultancy work for DIYers – podcasters, course writers on Udemy, etc (although I guess many are strapped for cash).

    Eventually, that would be one small part of the bigger picture though, my focus at the moment would be on Radio. I’m also looking into voice coaching sessions to upskill a bit so I can approach voice agencies.

    Hmm – sounds like that might be something to do with your soundcard settings or AD converter settings on your PC. There should be an option to raise your input level in the control panel.

    Consultancy is a great suggestion – might look into that! :)

    Yeah, I think the external soundcard and PC aren’t liking one another very much! You’re welcome. The consultancy would lend itself well to social network marketing. There are millions of people becoming producers of content. It’s been ‘democratised’ they say, but there’s a lot of rubbish out there and frustrated people. But will they pay? They bigger companies sometimes have dedicated teams on social though – podcasting, periscope, etc.
