This World Voice Day, celebrate those voice-using heroes in your life.
If you’ve ever produced a singer or voice actor with a sibilant S, here’s a quick fix you need in your extra essie life right now.
And so you can keep it on hand for your next run in with surplus ssssss, there’s a nifty downloadable at the end of this post.
Podcasting. Everyone’s doing it. Not everyone is doing it well—especially when it comes to podcast audio.
Nothing will make me hit those two vertical lines quicker than dodgy audio. Shit mics, hiss, hum, echoey guests, generally sounding like it was recorded in a bucket.
Studio equipment is hella expensive. Mics, preamps, acoustic treatments, headphones. You don’t want to take shortcuts with that stuff.
So it’s a feel-good time when you stumble across some nice-to-haves that cost next to nothing but will make #studiolife a bit more comfortable and productive.
There’s nothing worse than a sneaky anonymous noise bomb exploding its bits all over your recording session. Gross.
All the buttons. All the gear. All the tech. All the more reason to mind your manners when entering the studio.
I remember my first voice over demo. It was Y2K, astonishingly the world hadn’t ended, Justin and Britney were a thing, the shouty, over-excited announcer was the ‘it’ voice and being a radio announcer meant, by default, I was a qualified voice actor.
I don’t need to explain that weddings are expensive and the worst for indecisive Librans like myself #somanydecisions. So when I got to voice this little explainer for the Canberra Wedding Festival, I knew I’d just stumbled across the perfect wedding solution. You’re welcome.
Holy scam-watch Batman! It’s a biff, pow, bam, zlonk to the face of old fashioned trickery in this explainer on how to avoid a scam.
