Description

In less than an hours time, I can show you how to produce a GREAT sounding Voice Over using simple step-by-step instructions, and using tools and software that are very inexpensive! ☆☆☆☆☆ OVER 60 REVIEWS!

Have you ever wondered what voice over processing tips can make your voice sound better on a recording? Have you ever tried to listen to a video or podcast, only to find the author has recorded his voice over too low, or worse, the audio is loud and distorted, and sounds like they're talking through a kazoo?

My personal pet peeve is hearing plosives, pops, and breaths distorting the audio every time says a word starting with a P or B! At the end of the day, there's a simple reason why we have very little patience for bad audio quality in a voice over...

People will forgive a bad image, but they will not forgive bad sound.

I have been recording videos, screencasts, screen recordings, and voice overs for well over 10 years, recording for my own company, tonyteach, as well as others such as Creative Cow, Infinite Skills, and even Lynda[dot]com. During this time, through many trials and errors, playing with different audio softwares, microphones, and hardwares – I was able to develop simple voice over processing tips to produce quality audio, every single time I recorded. More importantly, I was able to do all of this without breaking the bank, and I've summed it up into a short, easy to follow, 30+ minute course


3 Simple Steps to Recording Great Sounding Voice Over Audio!



• In this course, I can show you how to set up your voice over recording area, but also I tell you why.

• Learn how NOT to get those annoying echoes & reverbs when recording your voiceover

• Discover why 99% of the time, I record my voice without having a SINGLE pop, or plosive in the audio.

See why I only use a $40 USB mic that fits in the palm of my hand, for 98% of my voice over recordings.
I can show all of this, and more, in 3 Simple Steps :)

Who is the target audience?
  • This course was designed with the beginner in mind, and shows simple steps to get the best voice recordings – but also has techniques for the intermediate learner.
  • If you already know how to process voice recordings, and/or are fine with your recordings the way they are, this course is not for you :)
  • Though the course is taught from the basis of being a screencast or screen recording author, the mic information & sound processing lessons carry over into voiceovers, narration, or doing voices for animation.

Once you have created the type of voice processing you like, in Audacity you have the option, of automating the process. Though it's kind of hidden, you can create a Chain in Audacity, doing this records the steps you took, so you can automate your editing process.

You should probably save a Chain for each group of recordings you do, as the sound of a room, or mic placement may change.

    My specialty in software training, is taking complex applications, and breaking them down into simple steps that even a beginner, or novice can follow. With over 2 decades of experience, my tutorials have been featured on Creative Cow, Adobe, Toon Boom, GoMediazine, Infinite Skills, O’Reilly, and I am also a Lynda[dot]com author.

    In teaching, and in life, I try and follow this mantra…

    Keep it simple, make it perfect; If you don't have the time to make it perfect, rethink the idea. - Tony Ross
