My Voice Experience
I record voice over narrations full time. My specialty is the production of training videos. Most of these are published by Groove3.com. I have written and recorded numerous full length tutorial series on professional audio software.
My voice over work as been featured in training for products by Cakewalk, Avid, PreSonus, Waves and Izotope. Videos including my voiceover are embedded in the Cakewalk Music Creator 6 product which is available at Best Buy, Target and Guitar Center stores nationwide.
I have also voiced firmware based alarm call outs systems. My voice is also heard on the periodic HitHackers podcast which is a webshow featuring the analysis of hit songs.
I have BS in Electrical Engineering and post graduate studies in business. I also have a Master of Songwriting from Berkley Music that I completed a few years ago.
My technical expertise is in audio engineering. I teach all aspects of music production, mixing and mastering through tutorial videos.
Since my work involves extensive use of my voice and recording voice overs I started working weekly with a voice over coach. I hope to continue to improve my delivery and expressiveness to be able to accept a wider range of voice over work.
My Studio Equipment
I actually have two studios currently. One is a product studio used for music production and the other is my voice over and editing studio that I use for recording narrations.
For most work I use this recording chain:
Neumann TLM102 -> Safe Sound P1 -> Tube Tech EQ1A ->Focusrite Saffire audio interface
Recently I have been doing some projects using a PreSonus StudioLive 16.0.2 in place of my normal analog chain. The results have been excellent and it simplifies the setup by eliminating the preamp, EQ and Focusrite.
Here are my computer specs if you are interested in that sort of thing:
Mac Pro 6-core 3.33GHz, 32GB, 512SSD
I record most voice overs using Studio One 2 Pro however I am fluent in Pro Tools, Cubase, and Ableton Live as well. I can also record using SONAR X1 via Bootcamp to Windows 7. I have done a lot of training for Cakewalk so I can move between Mac and PC recording applications pretty easily.
For screencasting I use Screenflow on the Mac and Camtasia on the PC.
My studio monitors are Genelec and my headphones are ATH-M50.
I have several other mics that I use for voice over depending on the situation:
The Sennheiser MKH416 is my primary VO mic.
Other mics include:, Neumann TLM-102, Heil PR40, Shure SM7b, Shure KSM32, MikTek CV-4, Avantone BV-1
I am fluent in all aspects of audio recording, editing, mixing and mastering.
I am also an expert in screencast style video recording that requires capturing high fidelity audio along with voice over.
