A: There are many reasons an audio recording may have a glitch. It could be an error in the recording process, a bad export or corrupt file. The glitch can also be an edit where somebody removed content that was not relevant to the recording. We have all the necessary tools to run testing on the metadata, the digital back door, as well as the front door of the file itself. Critical listening and waveform analysis, as well as file sample rates that do not match the recorded sound spectrum help complete forensic audio authentication testing.
A: There are many reasons an audio recording won’t play. This does not mean the recording is not authentic. We can begin our investigation of your audio recording with an initial review and consultation. This is a lower price point than general audio video authentication and analysis testing.
If you are looking at the MAC properties, they can be misleading as to the actual recording create date. We can bring your audio recording into the lab and determine what the actual date the recording was created on.
A: Primeau Forensics is a digital media forensics lab that practices scientific best practices and unbiased testing. Our forensic authentication testing can tell if an audio recording is original and if it is not. We can also tell if a file has been converted to cover editing. After our testing process, we will notify you of the level of integrity an audio recording has.
We are unbiased scientists who do not have a dog in the race. If your recording has been altered, we will be able to scientifically prove it. We work with attorneys to help strategically plan the reporting of our findings and testifying in court if necessary.
