Narration FAQ

Answers to some of the questions we hear often.

Do I need to be a professional for this?

Nope :) Gyst Audio accepts both amateur and professional narrators. We don't ask for a formal resume, and we judge narrations on their merit, not your experience level. We just want your narration to be dynamic, engaging, well-enunciated and pleasant to listen to.

How do I apply?

Send us a message at, and we will give you more details on our application process.

How do I get paid?

We send out payments via PayPal or Venmo every 2 weeks for all recordings done over that period. Narrators get paid as much as $50(US)/hour of completed recordings.

What do I need to make a good recording?

You can read more about recording quality on our Recording Guidelines page.

What about editing?

You can use any recording software to record and edit your narrations. As long as the narration is accurate and sounds good, it's a win.
If you're looking for a good free audio tool, we recommend Audacity.
