Contest Title:

Holiday Invitation

Director's Notes:

This is a simulated audition for a TV commercial inviting tourists to visit our city for the holidays. No slate, no sound effects, no music, just you. Sound festive. Leave clean breaks at the punctuation, so we can sync the audio with visuals. The spot itself will be a full production, with music, happy families and couples, and holiday-time scenery.

Script:

It’s a beautiful time of year. Join in our festivity! Whether you come for a short visit, or an extended stay, you’ll find fun things to fill every hour. Fun people, too!

Remember to check Archived Contests the first Monday of each month to learn who won, with explanations of why they won and why others didn’t, and hear some examples of each.

USB mics: Good enough for VO studios? Part 1 of 2


NOTE: This is the first post in a 2-part article. Click here to read part 2!

Put five voice actors in a room and they'll soon be exchanging opinions on various mics. The main criteria have been: budget, which mic suits your recording space, and which mic suits your voice type best.

But now, thanks to a number of low-priced USB mics, budget may be less of an issue. They don't need a pre-amp or interface or even expensive cables. But are USB mics really good enough for recording a voice actor at the professional level? We tested a bunch of them, to see.

The short answer is that a USB mic is terrific for beginning a voice-acting career. Roughly speaking, a good USB mic will give 90% of the quality sound you need. They're like an 18-year-old's first car: Something sensible and inexpensive will get the owner safely from point A to point B. In time, you may want to re-invest your profit and buy a more expensive mic. But if it still satisfies you and your clients, an upgrade may not even be necessary.

Many USB mics feature the exact same condenser mic element as their XLR version, so USB models provide a similar high quality sound signature. The primary difference is that the USB mic has its own internal analog-to-digital converter, which affects the quality of the sound being passed along.
