HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
I spent 3 years in FM radio as a DJ and producer back in the early 90's. During that time, I started receiving requests to voice ads, host events and do VOG stage work. Over the past 15 years, I've voiced industrials, narratives, station images, show elements, commercials, internet projects, stage elements and on-hold messages. I'm a naturally energetic, upbeat person and I love this work!

Also, I hope you'll check out and join a new group that we just started called MARKETING FOR FUN AND PROFIT. It's a group dedicated to discussing ways we can market ourselves - what works; what doesn't. The link is: www.voiceoveruniverse.com/group/marketingforfunandprofit
Thanks for your time! I trust our paths will cross soon!
Thanks for the input, John. If you don't mind me asking... what are you moving to and why are you moving away from the Manley Voxbox? I've heard good things about it.
On the demos I'm using a GML 2032. For the long form work I do, I get copy changes sometimes a year or longer after the initial recording, so I wanted something that wouldn't drift (sound wise) like tubes tend to do. Make no mistake, I really liked the Voxbox too, but for what I do I'm happier with the George Massenburg unit.
Hey John. Thanks for the add. Your reels really have a good sound. I'm trying to find a reasonably cost-effective way to give my VOs that rich warm tube sound. I'm considering adding a dbx 376 channel strip. Do you think that will do the trick?
Thanks for the compliment. I don't know much about the dbx 376. What I can tell you about tube equipment in the price range you're looking at is that the weakest part of those units are the tubes themselves. So if you decide on a DBX, Presonus, ART etc., the way to make them sound better is to replace the stock tube with a better one. There are several discusions about that subject on some of the voice over boards. Also, you might try for a better answer about the DBX from the Gear Heads group. There are some guys that belong to the group that can give you a better idea of how that unit will work for you. By the way, my chain is 100% solid state. I had a Manley Voxbox, but it's for sale at the moment.
