We’re an audio publisher that has been in business for almost 25 years. Each audio product is delivered on CD and MP3 as well as through our new mobile apps. For most of our history, we’ve produced our audio content at a local studio. However, we are moving the recording in-house and we want to hire a freelance audio engineer to edit (and possibly record) these monthly programs.
The recording takes about 10 hours per month for the four programs and could be handled by the freelance engineer if located in the Chicago area; otherwise we will have an existing staff member take over the recording task.) The editing typically requires a total of about 30 hours and could be performed by an engineer anywhere in the world. About one-third of the audio is currently recorded in Florida and the files are sent to Chicago for editing. Under the new arrangement, those files would be sent to wherever the audio engineer is located for editing.
We’re flexible with regard to the Digital Audio Workbench software used. Our outside studio currently uses ProTools and we’re also open to using Adobe Audition or Apple’s Logic Pro.
The ideal candidate would be located in the Chicago area to facilitate recording as well as experienced in editing spoken-word programs using Apple Logic Pro, Avid ProTools, or Adobe Audition.
The big-plus, for the right person, is that this job involves reliable monthly income for the foreseeable future without tying them up in a full-time job.
