I have a song recorded off a laptop microphone. Obviously not the best equipment, but its just a few family members singing, not a commercial production. I'd like to contribute, and since my singing usually results in cringes, I figured I try to clean up the recording a bit.
I've done some photography in the past, and know enough Photoshop to understand that for amateur photographs, there are a few simple tactics that usually significantly improve a photo (work the contrast curves, crop to rule of thirds, etc).
I'm a beginner at audio editing - are there any similar tactics for an amateur audio recording?
