My Voice Experience

Since 1976, I have performed a myriad of voices...mostly for radio commercials, most of which I have directed/produced/edited & mixed....and most have been done for a variety of Advertising Agencies and In-House clients over this 33-year period. I can do a wide-range of voice characterizations....from a very believable Santa's Elf (without any compression), to a crusty old southern-drawl cowboy.

My Training

Only "education" is a 33-year career in the industry, including Radio broadcasting and Professional Media Recording.

My Studio Equipment

Dave Louis' Audio Images Kauai uses the industry standard Pro Tools 24 for all recording, editing and mixing projects. Periferals include TDM plug-in effects including Compression and EQ, dbx limiter, and all standard file conversion formats are available.

Our Yamaha O2R Digital Mixer is second to none in the industry, which features an LCD display, scene memory, and them “flying” faders you’re so fond of!

We use the industry standard Sennheiser 416 Shotgun Microphone, and (2) Neumann U87 microphones for all our VO sessions.

Additional equipment includes our Fostex D-5 Digital Master DAT recorder, Sony & Yamaha CD writers, ETI Professional CD duplicator, DBX limiter and more.

Our Static IP High-Speed Modem uploads and downloads large audio files in a flash…all from our cool & dependable iMac workstation....or we can send (or receive) audio files of any format via YouSendIt.

There is no ISDN available on the North Shore of Kauai.

Additional Skills

I am a seasoned VO Talent Director/Producer, as well as a top-notch digital audio editor and mixer. I have been editing VO audio since 1976, and am considered one of the best (and fastest) in the industry....in fact, it's really my forte....and the most satisfying and accomplished part of my career.
