Regards, Bryan Donald Seago January 11 at 10:07 am Great information you put out Terry. Wondered how water making was done with recordings. Randye Kaye January 11 at 10:53 am awesome! been using adobe forever and never knew about “generate tones”, so there you are. Go figure. What I have done is create a “watermark track” of beeps and blips and have been going to multi-track format ro mix the two (after saving the clean file, of course). This is easier. thanks, Mike !!!! Randye Jan Ochs January 11 at 10:59 am Nice piece, but you don’t tell anyone how to get the watermarks out. Terry Daniel January 11 at 11:05 am Good point, Jan but we will be providing that information in another video coming soon. Stay tuned and thanks for the comment. :-) Ron Nelson January 11 at 12:16 pm @Jan: If you watch closely in the video, Mike saves the original file without the watermarks, then makes a new copy with the watermarks. This can also be done using Audacity, which is a free program available by download. Miguel Hilao January 11 at 1:50 pm Good points and excellent way to protect your work. Mitch Charles January 12 at 9:52 am good information . i look forward to learning more Mitch Charles January 12 at 9:54 am great info cant wait to learn more Connie Terwilliger January 13 at 3:56 pm Hi Mike, For auditions I will change a word or leave something off – rather then use tones. For actual work with a new client, I stopped using tones and usually send a low quality recording if I am concerned about not getting paid – but will consider watermarking with tones again. Thanks for the reminder. However! Instead of “inserting” the tone – which basically opens up the recording and adds the tone – wouldn’t you want to highlight and “select” a very short segment and “replace” it with the tone? (Kind of like what Randye was doing in the multi-track mix.) In theory if you add it, it could be edited out – since it is not actually covering anything up. In reality, they probably don’t have the software and editing skills to do it, but, it is possible. Comments are closed.
