Simple can be good

While finishing a book for audible with acx I was sure I was done.  Hoping the author liked and approved of the read I waited for the go ahead.  Well, there was a simple little phrase with a word that was NOT in the text.  Getting the request to make the change had me worried.  no need.  Just re read the phrase and reload the corrected file.  Done.  Almost.  Let's make some more simple changes.  Really, they are simple.  A few more paragraphs to make the story complete.

Rethinking Slating Strategies on P2P Voiceover Sites

Ever since entering the online voiceover marketplaces like Voices.com, Voice123.com, and others, it has been my standard practice to slate my auditions with a simple name tag at the beginning. I even devised an impactful standardized slate file with a brief sound effect mixed in to catch the attention of voice seekers from the moment they clicked "play."

Perhaps A Source of Inspiration For Some Of Us Aspiring Voiceover "Geeks" ?

OK -- I can't keep this to myself any longer...  I'm totally forced to public admit, confess, etc... I AM A GEEK. If there was a Geeks Anonymous .. I would be there... just as I would love to be at a Comic Con someday before I die... Just for these special unveilings...  Hobbit! Iron Man! Godzilla! ALL elements of my long ago youth... Oh the irony of getting "older" just to become a "kid again" in pursuit of the "wow" that results from a childhood imagination…

Thinking of Switching to an iMac. Question for you Guys

Guys I have been using a PC for many many years and I think I am ready to make the move to a Mac. Can you tell me how you are connecting your Mic pre to the Mac? I most likely will get the iMac.

Here is what I now have...My AT4050 mic into my 528E processor into my E-MU 1616 A/D converter into the PCI card of my PC.

Work at my own pace

One of the great things about working indepentantly is the schedule.  It is mine.  I set it.  There is time for life outside of my audio cave.

I do many of Will Bevis' books.  The work flow is great.  Then...a new project.  Yes, I want this book as one of my narrating projects.  Now I have to act like it is a job.  Well, it is a job.  Taking it that way makes it work better.  However, that does NOT mean I will become slave to it.  This is after…

Work flow and where is my pencil?

There has always been a need for me to have things in place.  Work space needs to be free of confusion.  Something as simple as having the computer screen at the right angle.  The keyboard easy to reach.  The mouse pad has to be in the right place.

I just re did my audio cave so both computers are in a spot where things flow from recording to online monitoring and sending.  Naturally that will help me keep focus and help my work…
