How to make an audiobook for iTunes

Fancy making an audiobook to sell on iTunes? Here’s what you will need.

  • A script
  • A microphone
  • A filing cabinet
  • A chair
  • Two buckets (ideally metal ones)
  • A sound editing program

And here’s how to do it:

  • Plug the microphone into your sound editing program.
  • Move the filing cabinet to the farthest corner of the room.
  • Put the microphone on top of the filing cabinet.
  • Put one of the buckets on top of the microphone.
  • Move the chair to the corner diagonally opposite the filing cabinet.
  • Put the second bucket on your head.
  • Read the script very quietly.
  • Save the file in the lowest possible sound quality.
  • Profit!

  1. Of course, if you get a decent sound-editing program, you can just use its “bucket and filing cabinet” effect.

    Nah, that’s not as fun as recording live with bucketorama sound.

    I’m always really surprised no-one doesn’t listen and say “it’s sh…shockingly difficult to understand.”

  3. Excelent! But how to create just files in iTunes’ audiobook format?
