Voice-Over Casting Online

If you’re a voice actor looking for an online voice casting site that produces results, you need to look into The Voice Realm. Nobody is paying me to say this and I don’t have any stake in the company. I’m simply a home studio voice actor that has tried many voice-over casting sites over the years, and this is my favorite.

Blah blah personal stuff:

Recently, I’d become a bit lazy and wasn’t auditioning every day as I should. And when I did audition, I rushed through them just to get them done. This of course led to a dry spell in actual voice work, and bummed me out a bit. Last week I decided to make auditioning a priority again; actually turning off the outside world, going into my home studio, and concentrating on only one thing: Getting voice-over jobs. And you know what? The more you put into auditioning, the more opportunities you’ll have. “Duh, Dave.” I know.

Sometimes I forget. You don’t need to be first to audition. You just need to give it your best. You can’t be thinking, “Oh, Tosh.O is on in 15 minutes. I’ll just crank these auditions out really quick.” No. I’ve been doing this for so long that I started to lose my passion for it. The audition IS the job!  Apparently, I just needed to be reminded of that.

SuperCoco Spanish Language Learning App

Late last year, I recorded hours of dialog for an app to help people learn to speak Spanish. I never got to hear it myself because the software company (Larkwire LLC) only released it for Apple devices. (App Store: SuperCoco – Learn Spanish in Conversations); and I’m an Android guy, so…

At any rate, there’s a ton of my voice in this (free?) iPhone app if any of you want to check it out — And learn some Spanish! 🙂

A Better Pop Filter

A really good investment: WindTech PopGard 2000.

I’ve been wanting to replace my crappy flexible pop filter for quite some time, but I guess I’ve either been lazy or didn’t think there was really a better option available.  I did some research and read a lot of reviews before choosing the PopGard 2000.   The main benefit was not having that gigantic round disc in my face.  Also, not having to constantly adjust the flexible stem if (when) I bumped it.

This new pop filter is pretty cool because it mounts softly (quietly) to the microphone chassis and wraps around it pretty tight… so if you’re like me, it increases the visibility of your scripts on the monitor in front of you.  I used to have to read sideways across the mic to see my monitor, and I noticed that my Neumann TLM-103 has a much richer sound if you speak directly into it – not across it.  As a bonus, I can move in about 3 inches closer to the mic for more personal reads.

Oh yeah… It does a great job stopping plosives (P’s and B’s)!  $32 well spent.  🙂
