Wondered if anyone can give me some advice - I've been producing sound and music for live theatre for several years, but have been recently approached about the possibility of creating sound for broadcast and online content. Before I go further down that route I wanted to see if I will have to get any further equipment or software.
Can anyone give me some info on what formats I'd need to be able to produce? Ie what would a radio station or web hosted want delivered from me to be broadcast ready? will they just want regular wavs etc?
you need to google on delivery specifications.. or ask them to provide them - for instance discovery or Nat Geo have a spec sheet outlining what they accept.
wavs are fine.. but you need the levels to meet broadcast standards.
as rough reference most TV stations would expect a mix to be provided that peaks at either -10dBFS or -12dBFS - altho with recent legisalation in the states it is getting a bit more complicated.
I havent done much radio in recent years but expect something similar..
