Hey everybody! You know, in the podcasting community, everyone seems to be talking about Adobe Enhanced Speech. It's touted as the solution to all our audio woes, but I've got to say, I'm feeling a bit lost in the hype. So, I decided to dig in, and here's what I found.
Adobe Enhanced Speech is recommended to tackle every audio problem you can think of, from noise reduction to de-essing.
After getting hands-on with Adobe Enhanced Speech, I can't say I'm fully on board. There are some genuine issues that seem to be glossed over.
I wanted to be fair, so I put Adobe Enhanced Speech to the test, comparing it to other tools like RX. I found that Adobe did a decent job in some examples, but it often ended up making the audio sound unnatural, taking the fullness out of voices, or adding strange quirks like lisps.
In some cases, it might have even been acceptable to use Adobe Enhanced, but the extreme EQ and overly processed sound just don't cut it for me.
Is it just me, or is Adobe Enhanced Speech being overhyped? Could it be that it's recommended just because it's free? Honestly, I can't put my finger on why everyone's raving about it.
