My Voice Experience

Throughout his twenty-eight year broadcasting career Dale was employed in small to major market radio, and held various demanding and time sensitive postions including News Writer/Presenter, On-Air Host in all day-parts, including a long run as Morning Host. Dale was in broadcasting well before the computer age, and therefore you really had to read with proper inflection, pacing, and articulation for 30 to 60 seconds. If not, you recorded it again. He remembers the day he recorded 18 spots following an on-air shift, and came out of the production room very tired, and then went right to work preparing for his show the next morning. Dale also held positions of Music Director, as well as Program Director, and did countless live on-air remote broadcasts. Of all his jobs, he took great pride in working with younger announcers assisting them to hone their skills and to make them better at their craft. Of course life has also given Dale experience meeting, and many times exceeding the expectations of clients, and feels confident that he can deliver even with a limited time window.

My Training

Dale's education includes the Radio, Television Arts program at NAIT in Edmonton, AB, from there Dale went on to work at various radio stations throughout Alberta including the CJYR Radio Network in Northwestern Alberta, CKST St. Alberta AB., CJOK Fort McMurray AB., CKYL in Peace River AB., CFFR Calgary AB.,and finally CFXE Edson AB. Add to that, life itself, and the school of hard knocks. During Dale's broadcast career, he was one of the guys who made it sound easy, however he will tell you, that it was the numerous hours he put into his career off-air that made it sound that way. If he was not on the air he was listening back to recent shows to improve, and listening to how other talent in the industry at the time, were changing and progressing. You don't stay in the broadcast business and on-air for 28 years if you do not progress. Today Dale is dedicated to his famiy, and is employed as a Heavy Equipment Operator at a Coal Mine in Western Alberta, not far from his home in Edson. He is still learning and at the same time educating others. Dale's full-time job of running a monster 789 Cat Truck Coal/Rock Hauler and giant 24 M Cat Grader in a heavy industrial site allows Dale to talk about what he experiences everyday when recording safety related videos for industry. Dale's four-on, four-off schedule allows him to submerge himself in his voice over business during his time off.

My Studio Equipment

Dale has a Personal Record Studio that features a custom build PC containing Goldwave recording software. For new voice over work he uses the Sennheiser MK4. The studio also features an Audio Technica AT2020 which is only used to voice match jobs previously recorded. Both mics work through a Yamaha MG-10XU mixer that has 24 electronic pre-set audio voice effects.
His personal studio has been custom built from the inside out as a voice over recording studio in mind, complete with professional sound proofing and sound absorption panels on walls. A quick video of a construction process can be view on the Dasch Voice Over Creations Facebook page.
