The fact is that as an auditioning, working voice actor these days, the quality of your audio is just as important as the performance. Great sound quality means increased opportunities for income, since what you record at home is actually ending up on the television or radio more and more often. There are powerful tools at your disposal, but you can do a lot of damage if you don’t use them correctly. How far do you go before you leave the sound file alone? And what is the difference between cleaning up a file and going too far, making it sound slick and too professional and losing all the authenticity you worked your a$$ off to achieve. These days it’s not just about your sound quality, but also your ability to be the engineer. Building a reputation as a voice actor that can do it all – act and engineer – will bring you even more opportunities. And what about sound connection platforms used in professional session like Source Connect? This workshop is designed to make you into the jack-of-all trades, capable of connecting with the client, recording the session as well as quickly analyzing what might be technically wrong and responding with a precise fix, and acting (oh yeah… THAT!). When a producer or director works with you and listens to your audio, the only thing they should be aware of is your brilliant performance.
