So, I never set out to do VO, but I was playing around with a new mic, made a silly recording and sent it to a friend (you know, so he could laugh at it, then delete it.) He works with a small non-profit television studio. Joy of joys, he shares it with his boss and a couple other guys and I get a request for VO work. I am more than happy to oblige but... I have no VO training, I have no knowledge of the standards of the field. I'm just a little-experienced guy making recordings as best he can. Vocal coach - unless they work for $10 an hour or less, its more important to keep the lights on in the house. So, then it comes to learn by reading. Can anyone recommend me solid websites or books on the subject? I'll take, and want, info on everything from how to use my voice as best I can, to how to process the audio properly for TV. I looked at some books but there are a million out there that I believe were written by readers of I.B. Greedily's famous "How to get rich: Writing how to's for people who want to get rich." Equipment wise (incase it helps) Mic's SM7b, Baby Bottle, Beta 58a Pre: Warm Audio WA12 EQ: Ashly GQX-3102 Expander: Behringer XR4400 Comp: ART PRO-VLA II (Out getting lightweight mod at JJ's) Recorder: TASCAM DR-40 (Tryign to figure out how to weasel my money into a Red Sparrow MkII) Any recommended reading, any tips/advice, any creative and amusing threats of bodily harm, will all be appreciated.
