    narration about the solar system

    Script:

    Our solar system is one of over 500 known solar systems in the entire milky way galaxy. The solar system came into being about 4.5 billion years ago when a cloud of interstellar gas and dust collapsed resulting in a solar nebula, a swirling disk of material that collided to form the solar system. The solar system is located in the milky way’s Orion star cluster. only 15% of stars in the galaxy host planetary systems and one of those stars is our own sun.

    There's a break in the flow at "medical marijuana patients and adult-use recreational customers" that makes it sound very much like the audio was spliced.

    The pop at "passionate" isn't as harsh of a plosive as I've heard in other recordings, but it still sticks out and (in my opinion) could be toned down while still delivering the same emphasis.

    Overall, I like the sound of your voice, and I can feel the underlying emotion behind the message. Audio quality is good, and it's easy to listen to.

    Peer Feedback:

    Thanks David! Yes, it was spliced there. Good catch.

    Description of creation in the Mahabharata

    Script:

    In this world, when it was destitute of brightness and light, and enveloped all around in total darkness, there came into being, as the primal cause of creation, a mighty egg, the one inexhaustible seed of all created beings. It is called Mahadivya, and was formed at the beginning of the Yuga, in which we are told, was the true light Brahma, the eternal one, the wonderful and inconceivable being present alike in all places; the invisible and subtile cause, whose nature partaketh of entity and nonentity. From this egg came out the lord Pitamaha Brahma, the one only Prajapati; with Suraguru and
    Sthanu. Then appeared the twenty-one Prajapatis, viz., Manu, Vasishtha and Parameshthi; ten Prachetas, Daksha, and the seven sons of Daksha. Then appeared the man of inconceivable nature whom all the Rishis know and so the Viswe-devas, the Adityas, the Vasus, and the twin Aswins; the
    Yakshas, the Sadhyas, the Pisachas, the Guhyakas, and the Pitris. After these were produced the wise and most holy Brahmarshis, and the numerous Rajarshis distinguished by every noble quality. So the water, the heavens, the earth, the air, the sky, the points of the heavens, the years, the seasons, the months, the fortnights, called Pakshas, with day and night in due succession. And thus were produced all things which are known to mankind.
    And what is seen in the universe, whether animate or inanimate, of created things, will at the end of the world, and after the expiration of the Yuga, be again confounded. And, at the commencement of other Yugas, all things will be renovated, and, like the various fruits of the earth, succeed each other in
    the due order of their seasons. Thus continueth perpetually to revolve in the world, without beginning and without end, this wheel which causeth the destruction of all things.

    Napcor

    Script:

    One plastic bottle can now become part of all your holiday celebrations. That’s because processes have been developed that make plastic beverage bottles and food containers recyclable into new ones. Until recently, plastic containers have only been recycled into such things as carpet and fiberfill for pillows and ski jackets. But now, a bottle can come back as a bottle, over and over again. And that’s great news for the environment. In 2000, 225 million pounds of plastic were recycled. But much more needs to be done. And more people need to know that...

    A Story

    Script:

    Every moment has a story. And every story matters

    The first men painted stories on stone walls, the ancient Egyptians chose the chisel instead.

    The Incans told story with dances and fire, aborigines told it with star and spear.

    Stories are at the very essence of human life. They count the breaths of every sunrise, the beats of every emotion and the silence of every heart. Stories take the fleeting temporal and makes them eternal.

    Early Childhood Brain Development

    Script:

    The first three years of life are a period of incredible growth in all areas of a baby's development. A newborn's brain is about 25 percent of its approximate adult weight. But by age 3, it has grown dramatically by producing billions of cells and hundreds of trillions of connections, or synapses, between these cells. In this section you will learn about the many ways parents and caregivers can help children get off to a good start and establish healthy patterns for life-long learning.

    The Watcher's Keep

    Script:

    Chapter Two
    A fire was already laid in the hearth when Alexandra and Peter finally arrived home. Supper was on the table and Molensa was just starting to pour some wine into a simple iron goblet at the head of the table. Peter noticed there were two extra place settings, each sporting a goblet of wine. There was also an intricately carved white hazel wood staff cradled in the stand next to the door. The staff sported a bronze wolf’s head pommel, brightly polished and well worn on the top. He knew what this meant, they both knew.
    “Oh, there you two are at last,” Molensa said, appearing a bit more annoyed than they felt she should be. “I thought you would both go to bed hungry this night, you stayed at the Abbey so late after lessons.” Molensa was a large woman. Not obese, but clearly someone who enjoyed eating good food. Her silver hair was pulled back and tied with a scarf as always.
    Peter knew immediately they had been caught. “We did not stay late after lessons today,” he said quickly. “We were… we did not go to the Abbey this morning. We were out in the forest, near to the Silver Stream waterfall.”
    “Were you out in the woods with that old hermit again?” Molensa asked pointedly.
    Neither of them could lie to her, she could read it in their eyes, and besides, she wouldn’t really care. “Yes, we went to visit Karoel,” Alexandra spoke up. “We wanted to spend some time with him before the Harvest begins. We did not mean any harm, we just wanted to hear more stories about the Old Days, before the world was broken and the Great Rift was formed.”
    Peter joined in, “From the time when there was still magic in the land, and there were elves and wizards and dwarves and dragons and griffins and —”
    “Enough! That will be quite enough of that!” Molensa barked, glancing quickly toward the closed kitchen door. “I will not have you speaking such prattle. Brother Cadresean will be disappointed that you two have not learned your lessons better than this. There are no such creatures as dwarves or dragons, there never were, and there will be no more such talk in this house.”
    She was not really angry they knew, just cautioning them. Talking of the Old Days was considered blasphemous in the Church, and was not allowed anywhere in the lands of King Leondis Tarbane. You most certainly did not speak of such things with a Julean monk in the house, bound by the laws of their Order to report all such heresy directly to His Holiness the Archbishop in Solenta. Compromising Brother Cadresean was not going to happen tonight if Molensa had anything to say about it.
    The heavy door to the kitchen opened slowly and three men filed through, engaged in a quiet discussion. The first was Bairden Oldsted, the master of this house and guardian of the twins. Bairden was a large man by human measure, with dark, strong, weathered hands that had long held a chisel and hammer in the service of the King or his Lord. His face was kind, with wrinkles set deeply around his eyes — as much a sign of his nature as his deep belly laugh. His face was partially hidden by a thick growth of beard, which always seemed to shelter an escaped fragment or two from the stonework of the day. Today was no different.
    The second man was much smaller, dressed in the plain brown robes of the Julean monks, which made his pale skin appear almost ashen. He sported a wild shock of jet black hair that seemed to have been pasted across his high forehead. He could have been a wraith next to the two larger, healthy men.
    He was a stranger, though the children had seen him before. He was a recent arrival at the Abbey, and they knew him to be from the Royal Court — a counsellor of some worth attached to the Church. Not a High Counsellor to be sure, and not truly a monk or a priest, if you can believe the back room gossip at the Abbey, but a man who was obviously feared by the local Brethren. The whispered dread that swept through the monastery was enough for the children to appreciate Molensa’s earlier actions and caution. The staff at the door was his, they knew, and it was reported that he used it to discipline some of the less pious monks.
    The last man to enter was dear Brother Cadresean. His enormous brown robe, ruffled and wrinkled as usual, was tied awkwardly around his equally enormous belly, and he was chewing on some scrap of the upcoming meal that he had stumbled upon while the men were talking privately in the kitchen. His normally rosy cheeks were particularly pink this evening, and his shaved head wore a gloss that made it gleam like highly polished marble. He liked to sample the fine wines and ales that the Abbey produced, and it appeared he had been imbibing this evening already.
    “Ho, ho there you little lost lambs, have you been playing tricks again on a poor bedraggled monk,” Cadresean bellowed at the children. Sheepishly he glanced toward the pale little man who had moved over in front of the fire, and who pretended he had not heard, or just ignored this roaring greeting for Cadresean’s favorite students.
    “Ahem, I mean where have you two been all day,” speaking more now as befit a monk of his Order, and the Head Master at the Abbey in Alnen. “You have worried your dear mother sick, and you have missed your lessons today on top of it.”
    Mother? Alex wondered to herself, Did he mean Molensa?
    As Peter opened his mouth to reply, Molensa piped in quickly, “I am so embarrassed Brother. I had forgotten until just this very minute that I sent the children on an errand today, to Hilldale to pick up the makings for tonight’s dessert. I know how much you appreciate a bit of sweet fare after supper, and there was not a pound of fine chocolate to be had anywhere in Alnen. I am so deeply sorry to have caused you to worry. I must be losing my faculties in my old age.”
    “That’s right,” chimed in Alexandra, “chocolate and almonds for bearded crumb pie, Brother. Your favorite dessert I believe. Mother, I am surprised at you, forgetting that you sent us on such an important errand.” Alexandra decided to play along with the ruse, without really knowing why.
    Peter looked around confused, first at Alexandra, then at Molensa. He was just about to open his mouth and disagree when, “Don’t say a word Peter,” Alexandra said to him in the silent speech that the two of them had secretly shared as long as they could remember. “Keep quiet and let’s see where this is going. I am afraid of this pale little man from the Royal Court. He frightened me at the Abbey and he is even more frightening here, now. Not only that, but Brother Cadresean called Molensa Mother! He of all people certainly knows better than that.”

    Hey, Scott! I listen to a audio books daily. This recording is buzzy, and I would not be able to get through 5 minutes of this book with this buzz going on during the speaking parts. The good news is that I would have zero problem listening to you otherwise. I find this kind of inflection you have is the kind for marathon listening. Your levels are consistent, so, I did not have to touch my volume.

    Peer Feedback:

    Miko thank you very much. It turns out i have a hearing disability (only diagnosed recently) AND have been hindered in getting my sound right for recordings. Your comment is exactly one of the things I needed to understand as working in a vacuum, my studio alone, was masking this from me. So both addressing the hearing issue and getting pro producer studio analysis seems critical as a foundation builder. Which is on my radar. I did this recording months ago before finding that my microphone/speakers interface was in fact buzzing. I only discovered this in the last week. Again thank you. We don't know what we don't know.

    Peer Feedback:

    Apart from the above already mentioned, what is happening to your sound after most full stops? Seems to end too abruptly, or all background noise disappearing. Well done. I could listen to the whole audible book with your pace, emphasis and 'voices'.

    Peer Feedback:

    Meg you are spot on. This "super silence" is my flawed attempt to cut out "edit sounds" others mentioned in prior posts. Clearly that is over compensation, and until I get this whole "hey dude you have a hearing problem issue" resolved I may be my worst enemy.

    I am going to get a "studio checkup" with Edge soon. I really appreciate your dramatization comments as I was getting pretty low on my self. Really until I get the hearing challenge and the studio sound challenge resolved I'm realty much chasing my tail.
    I'm going to continue to post some work using my latest protocol and indulge me with your insights and feedback. (all.) My hearing issue will be addressed come January which was my intention, to go into 2019 with confidence, a decent audio setup, and lots of auditions....and landing my share.

    Creative Support

    Script:

    Get on with your own creative life. Ideas are free. They don’t cost you a thing. You can live in a world of thought all the days of your life and never go broke. You will also die unfulfilled, because an idea that never incarnates, that never becomes physical and grounded in this world, will eventually feel like the most painful burden you ever had to carry – one that you can never put down. People who have had near-death experiences report that there is indeed a life review that happens upon our death and that a part of that life review is to make note of what could have been in our lives had we chosen otherwise. Falling into that category are all the creative opportunities the universe provided for us that we let fall by the wayside because our fears carried more authority within us than our faith. Trust in the life support system that in inherent in your creative spirit. You will draw to yourself all that you need as you need it but you must first be willing to risk it all.

    Miko, hi there. I did enjoy your read, in fact, as someone who has spent most of his broadcast career talking with people on creativity and self belief, etc., I actually just sat back, closed my eyes and let you lead me through the piece. My critique: For ME, I would have maybe enjoyed and absorbed the whole piece with a little bit of slower delivery. Again for ME< I like to "savory" such powerful ideas that have true meaning embedded. ( It's funny, I like stronger emotional "hits" on certain words also, but it seems today most work is delivered in a rather "flat" manner. (to my ears...) Recording level was sustained and maybe it could be "backed off" just a little ? Not to dissuade you, since too many times I seem to be going in a difference direction that much of the VO crowd. By that I mean when I hear examples of "great" delivery on sites, I often feel they ar too fast, too high pitched and not emotive. Oh well. lol. I'm going to throw something up and maybe you can turn the tables on me...I've been so swamped with survival skills, ( i.e., m.o.n.e.y.) that my V/O foundation is still not complete... bah humbug ! cheers !

    Peer Feedback:

    Hi, Scott! I am going to start off by saying that I thought there was a rule to post no longer than 60 seconds here. It was awkward to find the right passages in this script to have the message make sense in that amount time. Aside from that, I'm going to submit a longer read and you can close your eyes and hear the voice crest and fall with more heart. This made me smile, what you say about the recording levels because yesterday can you believe, I just hooked up my new pre-amp and went gah gah. Before that, my levels were so soft! I was crazy excited that it was actually loud! I strutted my new-found windbaggery and got caught red handed! I can most certainly back off, thank you.
    Well, Scott, I respect and thank you for your most welcome comments. I have many, many other responses to your feedback because I talk a lot and you seem to have gotten me going. Maybe I'll just make coffee and you can swing by. As I was commenting to you in your "Watcher's Keep," I was thinking to myself that you were way more polished than the audiobook I just finished about the history of Christmas Carols, one of the "free" books on Audible this month! So, no turning of tables! Ho ho ho!

    “Phanerozoic Eon which started 570 million years ago” If I am your audience, I would need you to enunciate and slow that big word down! Otherwise, I prefer hearing things like this at a fast clip. I liked your friendly delivery as if to imply that the material was a piece of cake to digest. “The murder of an eccentric millionaire” sounds great in tone and the music bed is well-balanced and suiting. The next story was entertaining, and I smiled, so, I think it works! The “yellow garden spider” was all-matching with your natural, calm delivery, nature sound bed and script. Overall, I was satisfied with the recording quality.

It sounds like your breathing is a bit all over the place.

    Someone tell me if it's important to read the script as written, because you switched out two words in the this script and I noticed this is common in the feedback forum. Now, I'm wanting to know if I missed this in class that improvising is okay. :) Your read was pleasant and natural and could see it matched up with some video of a delicious lara bar. I also saw the read like you were reading the ingredients reflectively off the wrapper. I, too, thought it was really good.

    Very friendly tone, I like it!

    I'm not sure of your mic/studio setup, but the recording has some plosives, especially during the "please press one one" part. There are also awkward pauses (second line and second to last line) that breaks up the flow a bit in the read.

    Peer Feedback:

    I liked the pacing for telephony and I liked your inflection and articulation. It sounds just like my company's recording. Copy interpretation was great. The recording quality was nice and dead and good volume, so, I think with some experimentation with pop filter and your physical placement in front of the mic, you can get those distortions taken care of. Hope you get some jobs for that, stephsvoice, because you are easy on the ears!

    Peer Feedback:

    Thank you so much you both for the comments. They are really helping me.

    Hi there. You have a very soothing voice. As a listener, I wanted to be pulled in a little bit more by the copy - a bit more enthusiasm. The word "rate" sounds like "right" - I know you have an accent but just be cognizant of that :) The pause between "at" and "zero" - sounds a bit awkward. Overall very friendly and approachable.

    Peer Feedback:

    Thank you for the feedback. Appreciate your time.

    Peer Feedback:

    Friendly start. I think that the interested audience is going to be interested in 1. no annual fee and 2. no interest rate. That said, "introductory rate that's frozen at zero percent" was less emphasized than the advertisers would want, I'm thinking. I liked the tone and syncopation of your read. We are accustomed to hearing phone numbers phrased more as unit and less choppy. Your accent and maturity have the makings for a catchy spot, Megsvo!

    Burt's Bees

    Script:

    This is the story of a startup. A different kind of startup. The founders didn’t meet in a boardroom. And this was headquarters. This, their venture capital. You could say they lacked a strategy. But what they had was gumption. A belief in the power of nature. Rosemary, sweet almond oil and beeswax. For nourishing, effective skincare that says, I heart you, Skin. People took notice. Sales went national. Then to Canada. Sweeping Europe. Asia. Latin America. Even Easter Island. Burt got famous. Splurged on his wardrobe. Fame never went to his scruffy-haired head. They put their commitment in writing. Crafted their belief in sustainability. Invested in community outreach. And nature? Is still CEO. At the place where it started. At the start of a movement. That started it all.

    I wouldn't say your voice doesn't work well with this script, I'd say you might just need to take a different approach. You're tone fits but each sentence sounds important so nothing sounds important. Another approach could be telling a story. Which it is a story, since it's how Burt's Bees started. The emotion comes from you wanting to tell someone the amazing history of Burt's Bees. Just engaging your hands makes a difference. It adds more excitement and energy!

    Peer Feedback:

    Just the first thing I heard from the read was "mass and energy" & "space and time" in the second line each run together, feels like you could give them some more punch. Same goes with the delivery of E=mc2. Those feel to me like three places where you want to take your time and give some weight to those three phrases. Thank you for sharing :)

    Peer Feedback:

    Your voice and the read are clean and pristine, but the levels are too low, and there is an awful lot of white noise. At the end, where you say "no artificial ingredients", I can hear the smirk in your voice, but you might want to take it up a notch to full blown mirth. That's just a personal choice , but I think it would raise the energy level of the whole thing up and finish brightly.

    Peer Feedback:

    You've got some nice tones and musicality in your voice which you use to good effect.

    There's a lot of choppiness in the read caused by taking too many breaths and pauses (i.e. between "undiscovered/unspoiled" "creatures/and", "nearby/in". Let the read flow naturally. Add breath marks to your script before reading at places that would be natural in ordinary speech say, at the end of each complete thought - and then stick to it when performing.

    Peer Feedback:

    The script copy was confusing without punctuation.
    the only critique I have is you said "one hunert" for 100. that's a red flag.

    1 Corinthians 13

    Script:

    If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

    Tyrannosaurus Rex – Discovery For Kids

    Script:

    Tyrannosaurus rex was 40 feet long, weighed in at 6 tons and stood 15 feet high. Enormous, powerful legs could have stepped over a car in a single stride. Four-foot jaws, raggedly studded with 7-inch teeth could crush bone and consume 500 pounds in a single bite. Clearly this was the ultimate predator — the undisputed master of its Cretaceous world.

    Or not. One of the world's top paleontologists says T. rex was not a hunter at all. The fiercest giant of dinosaur lore was but a well-designed scavenger that had much more in common with buzzards and hyenas than with lions and tigers.

    1) There were a few places where I felt like the pauses were too long (for example: top palentologist says.....T Rex was not a hunter at all)
    2) The delivery of "lions and tigers" is a little odd, like it's going to continue into something else, instead of finishing the thought.

    Keep going! You're doing great.
