Recommended Posts

Sorry to break it to you, but I can't remember the last time (if ever) I heard a female post a VO here. If you really need one, I think JoBo has a female friend who might be interested, but only if it's a paid job.

 

Thanks. It's been even longer since a female post a BJ on here, !@#$, I mean VO on here. :boonie::boonie:

I'm a new female here and plan to start doing some free VOs for folks. My voice is a bit sultry (or high pitched depending on my mood. hahaha) but I'll try to do one for you if you are still looking. :)

 

yes ma'am please. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I don't think I mentioned thank you. :D

:) No problem. I recorded it and I'm assuming you want it dry? If you plan to fancy it up yourself, I can just give you the dry recording I've done with about 8-9 variations on it you can choose from. I'm not sure how this is usually done.

 

 

Please do ... You gonna find more requests at BW for a female voice

 

Welcome to BW :kiss:

 

That would be awesome. :) I fairly new to it but I'll do the best I can and don't mind doing dry reads at all. :)

Strawberry, You can do as many reads as you want. The more you do voice overs the less you will need to do for a request. You'll find yourself only doing 2 or 3 after awhile, and sometimes just one. But that will take a little time. Not many of us can do it on the first take and like it enough to submit it. Sometimes I do 2, some times more, you just don't know until you do it :)

I use LFM Productions http://www.lfmproductions.com (I highly recommend these guys!)

 

& have a couple from JeffRadio http://www.jeffradio.com as well.

 

If you are wanting free voice imaging, the best way is to do it yourself! You do get what you pay for...

LOL ... I agree with you

but they are not "yet" members to BW

They are professionals ... but several BW VOs are also current or former professionals ...

Thats the reason of the free section ... to give non-commercial projects the chance to receive reads who are made by BW members who are into the business

Offcourse person A gonna like someone more than a person B

but thats a way to give a poster some variety

Visit and listen @ BW !

That ain't a problem ...

At the time you upload a dry read ... We are standing by to give your reads some magic (if needed)

 

Fantastic! Well here it is. I did narrow it down to 5. :D I won't be hurt if it's unusable but I gave it a go.

It's in .wav format and all of the readings are in one file. If you need me to break them up or put them into .mp3 format, I can.

 

Cheers!

You have a fantastic voice ! Do you know that ?

Just adjust your mic a little ... currently your mic has a little too much "resonance"

 

I made 2 small example files ... and a small edit on your .wav file

You'll find it attached to this message

 

PS : to upload your files ...

see = Go Advanced > Manage Attachments and upload untill 5 files in a row

Thanks!! I didn't think my voice was fantastic but I feel it may be good in soothing applications like maybe doing voice overs for meditation or something. :D

 

Gotcha on the attachments. I did it that way at first on the one file but then I saw the little attachments drop down and added it that way but I'll do it the way you suggest next time. :)

 

Cheers!

I agree with GK...you have a great voice!

 

I also agree about the resonance. The sound has a "tubby" quality to it...very bassy & a bit muffled. I also heard some plosives ("popping your P's".) Don't panic though! There could very well be some easy (and cheap/free) fixes to get you sounding even better. Can you give us some information about your setup? It will help to know what's in your signal chain (mic, preamp, mixer, audio converter, etc.) but also where you are recording.

Thanks Lapianoman! :)

 

No panic here at all, that's not my style. :) I have a condenser mic with a pop filter and the mic plugs into my mixer and the signal then goes through my limiter w/gate and back to the mixer then the signal goes out the mixer into my external soundcard into my laptop.

 

I'm welcome to your suggestions. GK has also given some thoughts on getting better audio. I think I may have caused some of the problems by running it through a piece of software I have to get rid of line hiss I recently started getting. But I'll try a few things out and see if it gets better. :)

 

I also recorded the audio with some sound foam on a music stand behind the mic. I'm recording in a walk-in closet converted into a recording booth. behind me I've mounted a floor rug to the wall and in front of it, a heavy blanket. Perhaps I'm facing the mic the wrong way now that I think about it.

 

I bought the sound foam to make an isolation box for my mic for voice overs but I haven't gotten around to using it as such. :)

I'm just doing some brain storming at this side of the planet ...

 

As you wrote to Me you are using a MXL mic ... I guess one of these ... and I suppose the MXL 770 version

see : http://www.mxlmics.com/products/Studio_mics/all_studio.html

 

Your studio gear is installed into a former walk-in-closet

Maybe some of these absorption products can be usefull to make the sound of your mic real "dry"

example :

reflex.jpg

The absorption material has to be in fact in front of you ... and if possible pointed to a wall or corner

(make a Google image search for the different types ....)

 

It can be important - these days - to use a mixer who is being Phantom Powered ...

Most of the broadcast/studio mics needs this to be able to create the "real thing" who is asked during the use in making reads etc

To my knowledge, but again thats only my experience, a mixer of Behringer has everything who is needed to being used with a MXL or RODE mic

 

You don't need a "huge" mixer ...

Behringer has already a small 3 channel mixer (type XENYX 502) for about 50 Euro ... thats about 65 US$ ... and its very usefull to "feed" your mic with some real Phantom Power

http://www.behringer.com/EN/images/products/502_P0576_TopFront_web.jpg

 

All this recorded with your software and adjusted with some EQ, plugins, tools or whatever gonna give you the real sound ...

and important, it gonna uplift your voice to a "higher" level ... maybe you gonna be surprised of the final results

I have this. :) But I think I need to try it facing the other direction and try out my isolation box as well. Here are some photos of my recording area. (MXL 990) :)

Can you adjust the foam also into other directions ?

example : around the mic

Now it is "in front" of your mic and it looks to Me that the highest edge of the foam is "lower" than the sound direction of your mic

so ... lots of sound disappears into the "air" ... Maybe thats part of the resonance problem (I'm just guessing)

 

I see also a chair :)

I like making reads standing in front of my mic ...

it gives you also a better feeling ...

If you are in a sitting position your voice gets a narrow feeling into your body

In other words :

Your body is straight ... but your head and throat is pointed more or less down ... and that can give also some effects to your mic that your voice gonna sound less ok ... once again maybe part of your resonance problem

 

If you speak with a stretched throat (so in a standing position) you gonna have the experience that your voice and the sound of it is more flexible ... Your breath gonna be better and more natural

 

That way you gonna experience that its gonna be possible to manage your foam screen in front of you ...

 

so ... standing position > mic in "front" of you > and behind or around your mic the foam

I see also a mixer ... It looks like a Behringer to Me ... or not ?

 

by the way ... into my corner :) I have also a chair ... sometimes I put one feet on the chair ... because that gives Me a more relaxed feeling ... But who am I ... thats just my way of doing things ... LOL
