Profile Information

I WORK IN THE VOICE OVER INDUSTRY AS A(N)
Voice Actor
HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
I've been a professional female voice talent and actress living and working in Texas for 25 years. I've been recording and uploading files from my ISDN home studio for the past 5 years. I've voiced literally thousands of radio and television commercials, corporate narrations, tutorials, on hold and voice mail messages. Although I do have an agent in Houston, and work a great deal via the internet, I'd love to connect with more national work via top notch voice over agents in LA, Chicago and NY.

I love working from my home studio, and I have become a little spoiled. I do love to work "in town" at the fine studios in Houston, but I always dread the commute. I've even worked a few last minute jobs via ISDN from my home studio to the local studios here.

Hey Melanie,
It's nice to see you here :-) You are such a talented person. I always enjoy working with you. I hope that sometime we get to finally meet each other! Here's to a successful year!

Congrats on your acquisition, Al! I'd say it's probably best to use as little processing a possible. In fact, several of my clients request no processing at all..... However, normally, I like to use a bit of the noise gate. You really have to play with it and listen to get your best settings. I have the Threshold and the ratio set at about 10 'clock position. Almost no compression, drive at about #2 setting, and density at a little less that #1. De-esser, Frequency, about 3K, and threshold at 5. For a male voice, you're going to want different settings than mine. For example, I have the Low Frequency enhancer totally down. Every now and then I play with the settings, especially when I introduce a new piece of equipment into the mix. Do you have the manual? I have a PDF version I could send you if you'd like.

Melanie - Would you be willing to share your settings on your DBX 286A when using the Senn MKH 416 P48? Just acquired a 416. TIA! Al Hoover

Hey Melanie,

I think you are sooo kewl!!! lol....I stumbled on your article about editing the breaths with "record." I think I'll try that...didn't think of that b4. Makes sense bc it's like u say - silence may sound unnatural - esp dry. Since then (a few minutes later) I listened to & read more of your spots and tips, etc. It'sall been very helpful - sooo.. thanks!!!! Just hope I can remember what I just learned....inflectionwise and such...next audition. :-)

Best wishes!
~ilene

Hi Melanie!

I know you’ve been a member of Voiceover Universe for some time, but I wanted to introduce one of our groups to you.

I hope you'll check out and join a group called MARKETING FOR FUN AND PROFIT. It's a group dedicated to discussing ways we can market ourselves - what works; what doesn't. You’ll find some very interesting ideas and concepts there! And we would appreciate your input. Click here for the link: MARKETING FOR FUN AND PROFIT!

Thanks for your time! I trust our paths will cross soon!

Best to ya!

Hey Melanie...so here's a "duh" from bettye...I came to your page to hear the new demo. Where is the "click on" thingy? Also, I may have told you this already, but I'm in Houston Feb 20-21 teaching workshop JUST FOR BEGINNERS with Jim Conlan. Please tell any newbees you might know and I surely would love to see you while there. Lunch? Wine? I'm firming up the details and will be in town Feb 19 and Feb 22 also doing private hour consults. Hugs. BZ
