    Hello Everyone! Working on a commercial script. I would love to hear feedback on delivery. I will also attach the script for your convenience:

    Introducing SRX, Cadillac’s all-new performance utility that raises the bar inside and out. Inside: SRX offers seating for seven and the UltraView roof, which gives first- and second-row passengers an unprecedented open-air riding experience. Outside: SRX has available Magnetic Ride Control, the world’s fastest-reacting suspension system. The result is maximized road contact that allows the driver to feel every S-curve and the thrill of every straightaway. The praise is high. So is the bar.

    Hey! This is 4/H take-2! Thank you Nettipo1! I think this is a little better. I’ve added the script!

    It began with the seed of an idea. In 1902, the heartland needed folks to embrace new advances in agriculture. But leaders with open minds, strong hearts and willing hands weren’t in abundance. Luckily, kids were. By empowering the next generation to lead, 4/H took root. And grew. Grew kids who are confident and strong. Who are curious enough to question. And capable enough to find the answer. True leaders aren’t born. They’re grown. 4/H GROWS HERE

    Hey fellow VO-ers! Would love some feedback on these commercial scripts. Recorded on my phone, so not looking for sound quality, just feedback on the reads! Thanks a million!

      I like both reads. different perspective on each. As Sue mentioned the first one sounded light with personality. The Second read sounded like a defensive personality like “I’m preparing for battle!” LOL! both were really good! Keep it up!

      Hey GretaJ! I liked both reads, the first was light and friendly. In the second read, it felt a little more aggressive. Great voice!

      Hi Suecat, I agree with nettipo1 about the audio quality. A piece of advice that my coach gave me is that when you’re recording you want to keep your voice between -12 and -6 decibels. If you’re using a software like audacity then you can visually see the volume you’re speaking at and try to maintain that throughout your read. I hope that helps, it definitely helped me.

        Thank you so much! I will keep that in mind and watch a little more closely!

      Hi suecat, the audio quality needs to be better (volume, clarity), because it made it difficult to hear your voice clearly. I think you have a smooth and even delivery, which is good. You might want to strengthen the emotions you are choosing to use in this read–and I say emotions because the story has a turning point in it, where there is a problem (a whole list of things that weren’t in abundance) to a solution (luckily, kids were), so there could be two emotions on either side of that turning point. So perhaps focus on bringing out the emotions behind the words more. Would love to hear you to do this one again and see what you can do with it.

    Hello All,
    I’m a new student here at Edge Studio and my homework was to toy around with audacity and submit a recording of the Hemingway script from the Edge Studio script library. I would appreciate any and all feedback on both my read and my use of audacity.

      This is very good -hard to believe you are a new student! I agree with suecat that you have a soothing voice, and I don’t notice any unnecessary pauses, so it flows into the listener’s ear very smoothly. I noticed that you sort of end with the same inflection point or same level at the end of a sentence or at comma, which might make it more monotone than you’d want, so you might want to break from that pattern a bit. Perhaps see how the phrases are more like thoughts, and combine those thoughts as one scene. Or perhaps visualize that you are saying these words to someone beside you. Overall though, this is a great first posting, so keep posting more!

      Hey!
      I liked the inflections in your voice, kept the read interesting. The tempo seemed to have increased in the middle of the read, as it was hard to understand your words. But you have a very soothing voice! Looking forward to hearing more!

      You have a great voice! On the Nutra System and Invisaline tempo could have been a little slower. Remembering what my Coach said, that the product/company name needs to be heard because they write the check. The Animal read started nice and methodical, then it picked up a bit. Still enjoyable reads.

      Hey!
      The first read was so soothing, I was glad to be an employee! The second read was also soothing, but with a little more energy, I would have been ready to invest! Fabulous voice!
