Bob Martinez

Med deep, believable, sincere, strong, conversational

Voice Description

My voice is versatile; it can be warm and deep for narrations, edgy and sexy for commercials, professional and educated for presentations. My delivery is also versatile, in that I can sound natural and conversational, or have the big announcer voice; whatever the project demands. I am also adept at creating character voices. In my last book I had to read a conversation between 5 people. One was a female, another was Australian, another was Irish and the last two were Russian and Serbian, respectively.

My Voice Experience

From 1987 through 1995 I did a morning talk show and voice over work for local and regional businesses. After a twenty year hiatus (I am winding down my career in law enforcement), I re-entered the voice over industry.

I have worked as voice over talent on projects for Network Solutions, CalTrans, produced audiobooks and various politicals. My work has been primarily for regional agencies like San Francisco-based, Kincaid and Associates.

I am curently working on a 12-book project with award winning author Nelson Pahl.

I am also narrating an audiobook called "The Gate", written by up-and-coming author Jason Brant.

My Training

I studied theater (stage performance) at Humboldt State University and then moved on to music as a professional drummer.

Once I was in the broadcast business, I became proficient in media production and engineering. Of course, that was in the old days when we used tape and splicers.

I am a meticulous editor. A recent client referred to me as a "perfectionist."

Nobody's perfect...but with the right editing you can get pretty darn close.

My Studio Equipment

I use an iMac running Adobe Audition. I use a Neuman TLM 102 condenser microphone through an Audient ID 22 professional interface. My studio is professionally treated and it enables me to accommodate a wide range of projects.

Additional Skills

I am a retired police detective in northern California. My work requires voice communication skills that enable me to develop rapport with victims AND suspects in a variety of physical and emotional environments.
