I had a chance to record in a professional ISDN studio... my very first time! It was a truly amazing experience - by far, one of the coolest experiences of my entire life!
I was contacted by Studio Center in LA, who has a studio here in Memphis, and they asked me to come in and audition. They told me to be prepared and to have my own material.
So I squeezed in as many voices into as short amount of time as possible. In the producers own words, he was "blown away." He asked me to do more, which I wasn't really prepared to do, but luckily for me, I had a few things I'd previously written and memorized. I did three or four bits off the top of my head like some fake movie trailers and a George Bush speech.
He actually interrupted the producers in the other recording booth so I could do some characters for them.
On TOP of that, he sent me a copy of my audition, fully-produced with music he did himself... for FREE. Overall, a really, really great experience... and LOTS of fun.
Yes, I bumbled a couple of words from being a little nervous, but I quickly got over it and just had a great time!
Here is what I did for the audition: http://manof1000voices.com/Documents/NightBefore.mp3
I was told to come back mid-December (no date yet) and have enough original material for 5 - 10 of my best voices, around 15 seconds a piece. I stayed half an hour after only having supposed to have stayed a few minutes, so I'm going to try to double the "order" just in case he wants to be entertained again. He was Paul Shanklin's first producer (the political impressionist that is often featured on Rush Limbaugh's show).
