    This is my third attempt as the site is being weird, I’m posting but don’t see the post after the fact; apologies if it looks like I’m spamming.

    Got some more homework. I’m working on slowing down and sounding more conversational which is tricky when you’re a fast talker. 😉

    For comparison, I’m including a second recording of the last script at my ‘normal speed.’

    Hello everyone,

    I’m trying to keep a certain flow with pauses while maintaining a tone of voice with little emotion. I’m not sure what other trials and errors I have to go through, but I would love to hear some input from you all!

      Vern, Ditto on suecat’s comments. Move toward getting the recording much clearer and no back round noise. Edge can help with getting you going on a good recording atmosphere; also You Tube, eh?
      Rock On!

      Hey Vern,
      It sounded as if you had a different tone for each performance – I hope that was your intent. The volume was very low so I could barely hear you. It sounded as if there was a consistent hum in the mic and your voice sounded a bit slurred. The noise factor skewed your performance. So I look forward to hearing more.

      Hey, You have a very clear and smooth voice. I’ll agree with Bev, an increased tempo would make it sound more conversational. In the second performance, I could hear your deep inhale, I guess that’s not a big deal, since they can be deleted from the recording. As we’re instructed, choose the person you’re talking to and why you’re telling them this information, to create that believable conversation. Love your voice, keep posting.

    Hello,
    I liked your read, Very clear easy to understand, the critic I would have and it’s probably just me but I would speed it up just a tiny bit.

    Hello, It’s been about 2 years in the making for me…. I am officially open for business. I built my own vocal recording booth, acquired all the gear and have been tinkering with producing my own stuff to be able to put a demo together. I want to focus on narration and so my first demo is geared towards that. Would love to get some feedback on how it sounds.

    It is entirely self produced, with the exception of one excerpt that I was hired for and i used clips of what they produced in the demo.

    I use a Neumann TLM-103…and some Rode NT1 for microphones. Universal Audio Apollo Twin X interface running an Avalon 737 preamp plugin. Adobe Audition DAW and I post produce/process with the Izotope software suite, (Nectar, Neutron, and Ozone)

      Ryan!
      Hmmm, not sure if I’m knowledgeable (edge….) enough yet; I was struck by your voice and versatility; the production quality for sure, but, I am wondering if a client would not just be interested in your voice alone? For me the accompanying music was loud, distracting and over topped your voice.
      Rock On!!

        I appreciate the comments…. I have been focusing a lot of my audio production skills on what is called “unmasking”…… it’s where you make equalization adjustments to your vocal track and your music track to get your voice to “lay in the mix”…… this allows you to still keep a nice loud music track that helps to evoke emotion….but the vocal track is still intelligible through it.

        Thank you…. I appreciate it. Honestly I don’t. I got my editing and production skills a long time ago when I worked in radio. Basic editing, multitrackiing, processing. But I watched a lot of YouTube videos to get it up to the next level. The information is out there…. You just have to find it and practice.

    Hi,
    I loved your read. You told it like it is just kind of matter of fact but not cold, I just thought it was great.

    Hi all! I’m practicing for my upcoming narration demo. Let me know what you think. Thank you!

    The resurgent popularity of analog is evidenced by popular photography brands such as Kodak reintroducing classic stocks like their Ektachrome film, a spike in accessible resources for processing and a renewed interest among collectors. Though it can be difficult to locate darkrooms to use, the process of developing film can be easily mastered in any dark space. Below, we explain how to develop film and how its technology can be used to capture fascinating images.

      Hi Mary!
      The reading is smooth and flows well without getting lost in the story. Also good tonal shifts as needed and highlighting keys words in the passage.
