Can you tell I'm from Tennessee? Just stumbled upon the BW site and it looks very interesting! I'm just testing the waters of VO at the ripe old age of 53. Am I nuts or what? But, since my health is giving me problems doing my full time job, I have to start thinking of something else to do with the years I have left. After all, I still have to eat and make them house payments.

 

Anyway, I look forward to snooping around and trying to learn (teach an old dog new tricks) something as I go! I have already checked out a few of your personal sites and listened to some of your demo's. I can't wait to get past those first 10 post to be able to listen to files that have been posted. Trouble is, I don't usually post much on most forums that I visit. I usually just hang back in the shadows and observe. I probably can't answer many questions as my knowledge in this field is non existent, but, I will probably have a few questions along the way. If I can help anyone though, I'm more than happy to.

Howdy and Welcome Wayne.

 

If you're just getting started, I recommend trying out Audacity. I haven't done a lot of VO stuff myself, but that seems to be a pretty good free program for learning. I'm not sure what the more professional VO folks use. At 36 or 37 I started learning to program in c#...at 40 I went back to school part time to get my degree. Old dogs can indeed learn new tricks. :yes:

 

Good Luck.

 

PS - Love the HeeHaw reference. ;)

Thanks for the welcome everyone.

 

Papabear - I've used Audacity in the past, and since I had to buy a digital interface, I decided to use the software that came with it. There is a little learning curve to it, but not to bad. I just recorded a few pieces for a request, and realize how bad my little studio needs acoustical treatment! WOW! The files sounded decent through my interface, but when I played them back on a VLC player, talk about high frequency reverb! The strange thing is they sounded okay on a Windows Media Player. I checked the EQ in the VLC player and set it to neutral, but still had the reverb.
