Fred Pagano

Deep, Warm, Convincing, Dramatic, Confident & Real

Voice Description

"Smooth and crunchy like chunky peanut butter on a warm summer day. Or something!"

Like peanut butter, I'm versatile and flexible: Smooth or edgy, friendly, dramatic, ominous. Calm, excited, matter-of-fact. Deep, rich or powerful. You can put me on a cracker or a piece of celery, or bake me into a brownie. Maybe straight out of the jar.

I enjoy doing high-concept projects. Storytelling. Juxtaposing the ominous, bigger than life voice of God type of dramatic read with humor is a favorite vocal trick - check out the Kahn's spot on my commercial demo and you'll see what I mean.

If you have a dramatic story to tell - maybe the story of your company - I'm your man. If you were to watch me during a studio session, you'd see me waving my arms, punching the air, and raising my head towards the heavens as if talking to God. And every bit comes across vocally.

And if you're selling something or doing a product demonstration, then my likable and trustworthy style is great: Friendly. Real. Authoritative.

If you're looking for something special and you don't hear it in one of my posted demos, please get in touch - I enjoy making new friends and sharing ideas. If I can't help you, maybe I can point you in the right direction. We're all in this together :)

Thanks!

The best advice I've heard for anyone in this business came from Gary Owens: "Read voraciously. Then when the word "abacus" comes up, you'll be able to launch into that nice little abacus story you saw the other day."

By the way, did you hear about the abacus that walked into the bar....?

My Studio Equipment

My professional facility, Brown Cow Studios of Boston, is fully equipped with a mix of digital and audio equipment. Most audio production is now recorded digitally, but we also have an assortment of old-school analog equipment - including two multitrack reel-to-reels(!) - because sometimes a project needs the warmth and mellowness you can only get from old-school analog equipment.

Digital Audio:
-HP Workstation (6-core Phenom II processor)
-Lexicon mixer
-Adobe Audition audio software
-Adobe Soundbooth
-Cubase audio software
-Audacity audio software
-Pantheon reverb
-Alesis active monitors
-Benwin monitors
-AKG, Marshall, and Shure microphones
-Tube MP Studio V3 preamps
-Over 15,000 cuts of fully licensed Dallas-produced tracks developed exclusively for radio imaging and promotion.
-A complete 5,000-track library of royalty-free music, and established relationships with some of the best music producers in the business.

Digital Video:
-Adobe Premier Pro
-Adobe After Effects
-Videostudio Pro
-Flash
-Dreamweaver

...and lots more, including a basement full of really cool but semi-functioning equipment that I've picked up in various places. Anybody got a No. 40 Rectifier?
