Dave recommend recording your voice in a quick 1 minute file. Then run it through the process and change the file name to represent what settings were used and then vote with your ears. We all have different characteristics of our voice and there isn't a one size fits all. Ray Ortega has an episode of the Podcaster's Studio where they interviewed a rep from Auphonic.

    Just listened and have a comment on how I use Auphonic.

    I have the desktop version – I like Auphonic, but the web version is slow for me and I used up the 2 hours very quickly.

    What I’ve found is that once I have the vocals recorded the best result I get is from doing noise removal in Audacity. Then exporting the wav file and importing in to Auphonic. This is the vocals only. I process on the podcast setting and untick the noise/hum removal option (what I had this option ticked I found the audio warbled a bit). Once processed, it is back in to Audacity for the addition of music beds etc and editing errors out.

    This is the workflow after a few tweaks to find the best options for me.
