:) Glad we could connect, Mike! I actually grew up in the Bayview & Sheppard area (I remember Bayview Village when it was a strip mall and they still had a Kmart. I worked at just about every store there as a teenager. :D ) - but I've come to truly appreciate Newmarket the long I live here. Hope to see you at a VO TO gathering at some point. All the best, -- Jodi
Hey there, Mike! I see Pat has already contacted you. :) I regularly attend the VO TO meetings also and it would be great to see you there! (Love your Green Day impression!! :D) I also recognize a number of the commercials you've done. Fantastic! Well done. And congrats on the move to full time!
Great demos Mike. You have a lot of talent to offer out there. I'm sure you will be very successful. Next lunch we are targeting for is Monday, June 14th 12 noon at Frog & Firkin at Yonge and Sheppard. Drop me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can stay in touch Mike. Good luck moving forward.
Mike, just wanted to congratulate you on the move into VO fulltime. I can very much relate to what you are doing as I too am doing the same thing. Having fun doing it too. Lets stay in touch as I live in TO as well. Continued good luck. If interested, I organize a VO Networking lunch every 3 months in Toronto. Let me know if you are interested in joining us. Continued good luck with your VO career.
Mike, take it from someone who’s owned over a hundred grand in top end mics; The best mic is the one that sounds best on you!” Michael Jackson's Thriller album broke all kinds of records and yet most of the tracks were recorded with a Shure SM-7 … ‘get what I’m saying? With more than one U47, an Elam 251, M-149, M269c, TLM103 and a bunch of others having been in my collection, the one mic that continued to work best FOR ME is the MKH-416. So get your hands on as many mics as possible and try them out, you might be surprised which one sounds best.
You rock Mike...Thx bro...looking forward to the pics and I guess I will get one of those adapters for the 1/8 to 1/4. I might have my mixer set up diff. My Emu1616 breakout box is not connected to the mixer at all. IT goes straight to my computer's sound card. Curious about your set up pics though..thx bro...
Mike...hey bro...you probably will not get this for a while but...I need some help brother...with you know who...yes, THAT-1, know who I'm talking about? ha ha...Well, I read your post that you had one so I need help hooking it up. I have a Behringer Xenyx1204 mixer and I am not sure where to hook it into. The only plugs that would fit the input and output of THAT-1 is in the CD/TAPE input and output...is that where you connect you know who, THAT-1? let me know bro... you can email me directly at email@example.com Love your demos BTW....great job...
I trust the Voiceover Universe experience has been good for you!
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. With your experience, you would be a tremendous resource!
Thanks for your time! I trust our paths will cross soon!
Thanks for the add...speaking of add...I might add...you're really great at this thing called Voice Over. You've got versatility in your voice personality AND your technical side shines too. Really nice...
