    Hi Mahlik

    Nice job. Nice voice.

    Tweaks: probably emphasizing coverage a bit. -“everything is the same except the coverage.
    -Allstate was too fast.
    -the sentence where you state my need- didn’t feel like I needed it.
    - disregard the .... (suggestion) this don’t pause between “need and puse”

    Recording quality- I heard some hard beginnings “talk to....
    Also sounded as if you had a slight cold-nasally.

    Great voice, fits the read very well. May want to slow down just a bit as you are trying to sell me on using Allstate, but I didn't catch everything the first time through.

    Callaway

    Script:

    Creating innovative, high-performance golf equipment is a challenge. It calls for a profound understanding of the game and those who play it. It requires intelligence, imagination and deep R&D resources, and above all, it demands a relentless commitment to be the best. You have to resist following and insist on leading. That’s what Callaway does.

    Betty Crocker

    Script:

    Betty Crocker is an imaginary person. Nonetheless, in a 1945 survey she was named the second-best-known woman in America, after Eleanor Roosevelt. She was “born” in 1921 during a Gold Medal flour promotion in which users completed a puzzle to win a pin cushion. Company executives decided to use the signature of “Betty Crocker” on the prize letters--Betty because the name had a warm approachable feel, and Crocker after an early company director, William G, Crocker. The fictional Ms. Crocker became so popular that she soon had her own products and recipe books, many of which still exist today.

    A Lesson Before Dying by Ernest J. Gaines

    Script:

    I was not there, yet I was there. No, I did not go to the trial, I did not hear the verdict, because I knew all the time what it would be. Still, I was there. I was there as much as anyone else was there. Either I sat behnd my aunt and his godmother or I sat beside them. Both are large women, but his godmother is larger. She is of average height, five four, five five, but weighs nearly two hundred pounds. Once she and my aunt had found their places--two rows behind the table where he sat with he sat with his court-appointed attorney--his godmother became as immobile as a great stone or as one of our oak or cypress stumps. She never got up once to go get water or go to the bathroom down in the basement. She just sat there staring at the boy’s clean-cropped head where he sat at the front table with his lawyer. Even after he had gone to await the jurors’ verdict, her eyes remained in that one direction. She heard nothing said in that courtroom. Not by the prosecutor, not by the defense attorney, not by my aunt. (Oh, yes, she did hear one word-one word, for sure: “hog.”)

    Alice in Wonderland - Excerpt

    Script:

    What is the use of a book,' thought Alice `without pictures or conversations ?'

    So she was considering in her own mind (as well as she could), whether the pleasure of making a daisy-chain would be worth the trouble of getting up and picking the daisies, when suddenly a White Rabbit with pink eyes ran close by her.

    There was nothing so VERY remarkable in that; nor did Alice think it so VERY much out of the way to hear the Rabbit say to itself, `Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be late!' (when she thought it over afterwards, it occurred to her that she ought to have wondered at this, but at the time it all seemed quite natural); but when the Rabbit actually TOOK A WATCH OUT OF ITS WAISTCOAT- POCKET, and looked at it, and then hurried on, Alice started to her feet, for it flashed across her mind that she had never before seen a rabbit with either a waistcoat-pocket, or a watch to take out of it, and burning with curiosity, she ran across the field after it, and fortunately was just in time to see it pop down a large rabbit-hole under the hedge.

    Hi Brad, this read sounds great and your voice goes well with the script. The only suggestion I have would be to watch out for glottal stops. I heard one in the beginning ("...find it *glottal stop* at Expedia."). Otherwise, I thought you paced it very well and it sounds clear and professional.

    Peer Feedback:

    This pacing and tone in this are very fitting! The recording quality sounds great on my computer speakers at least. The energy carried through to the end nicely too! Not sure about the pronunciation of "whatever" because it added a glottal start but, other than that, sounds great!

    Nice pacing! Try to make your words taller, they sound squished and this can cause choppiness or create a computerized sound. From my regular computer speakers, the recording quality sounds pretty good! Also, at the very end you had a bit of upspeak, I know the piece was ending but be careful of this!

    Nice read, as Kiea shared, the pacing was very well done. It did sound a bit choppy, tryin to make it a bit more conversational, like you're just talking to a few of us.

    Strong baritone voice! Love it and I think it's works perfectly for the NYSE. Very clear and precise. Nice job

    Peer Feedback:

    Wow this is great! I'll echo saswillis in saying your baritone is SPOT ON for this read. Your tone can easily carry all the "heft" or seriousness that the NYSE is probably looking for. However, at the end of the first sentence, it sounds like your confidence in the message wavers a little, like maybe you aren't sure if serving the investor is what's been pledged. It's a super subtle change lasts through the next sentence, in part, I think, because of the unusual punctuation (the two sentences should probably be 1). Then that confidence comes right back for everything after, "It's your market..." and really sells it! I might throw a little more umph behind the last NYSE. The recording quality sounds great over here!

    Peer Feedback:

    This is a good read. Your baritone voice is a good match for the "product". Also you hit key words well. As has been iterated in previous peer feedbacks, the recording should have stopped at the 22 - 25 second mark. But other than that, good job.

    Peer Feedback:

    Very nice fit of script with your voice! Solid read all around, great enunciation as well. Check your last sentence, sounded like you dropped a little low or the energy was low there.
    Nice work!

    Hey man. good stuff.

    First thing I wanna point out is that your recording is 5 minutes long. You should look into your editing and try to fix that. :D

    While the read is alright, you may need to work on your articulations mainly the "t" and "th" sounds.

    When you say the word "perfect", it sounded like "perfet" both times you said it.

    When you said the word "thing", it sound like "ting".

    You also glided over the brand name AMSTEL LIGHT. Try hitting that word better as it is the product name and what you are selling.

    Keep it up! :D

    Nice interpretation and pacing! I would recommend working on the editing of your actual recording though for removal of room and mouth noise. Great read!

    I love the fun, natural sound you brought to this script! I think it gave it a lot of character. There were a couple of points where the pacing was a little fast, for example I think you could have paused slightly longer both before and after the "Stop!", but overall I loved your read.

    Introduction of the Architect (Bluebeard's Castle)

    Script:

    Finally, you have come, young master. I see that you are curious about your father. Allow me to introduce myself. I am the Architect, Count Bluebeard's loyal assistant. I created this castle as a sanctuary of happiness and peace.

    Many years ago, the streets of this town flourished with life and joy. Until a demon cursed these lands as revenge for the broken deal. The dark Heart took root in the castle and holds us captive.

    The map will help you find the shrouded evil. And I will guide you in your quest.

    Find the heart and lift the curse! Save us all!

    You may go anywhere you wish in the castle, except where the doors are locked, where of course, you will not wish to go.

    There is a reason that all things are as they are, and did you see with my eyes and know with my knowledge, you would perhaps better understand of what strange things there may be.

    Great job. Based on the recording quality I didn't hear any issues. You could have had more fun with that character based on the genre. Also, When you say words like "All" it sounds kind of breathy. Not sure if that's character choice or how you say the word itself.

    @reianvent - Hey. Thanks for the feedback! Yeah, I was testing out different tones a character personality. I guess I ended up with the more safe and basic one. lol

    Antarctica

    Script:

    Far to the south lies a land of dazzling snowfields, crystalline glaciers, and dramatically carved ice mountains soaring above an untamed frozen wilderness. There are no human sounds in this land of primeval beauty, only the wild cries of birds, seals, and whales echoing across a vast expanse of land and sea. Experience the wonders and grandeur of a land where few have ever set foot as we discover the world’s last frontier — the great White Continent. This special voyage takes place during the austral summer, when the weather is best, temperatures are moderate, and days are long. Penguin chicks are hatching and it is common to see elephant seals along the beaches.

    Hey there. Good stuff. I like the read.

    I think you read some words to fast like "heart-racing" and others. These are words you'll likely need to HIT a bit more.

    I think the word "exhilaration" could be a full statement. In your read, it sounds like you're trying to connect it with the next sentence.

    For recording quality, there is a lot of background noise. You may also need to get a pop filter to lessen those popping sounds.

    Keep it up! :D

    Peer Feedback:

    This was great to listen to! You have a very smooth voice! There is a bit of room noise that you'll want to look into editing out. The script makes it seem as though there should be more of a differentiation between "exhilaration" and the next sentence though. Overall great read, just a few things that could make it even better!

    Mortgage Shopping

    Script:

    Before you go house shopping, the Connecticut Society of CPAs recommends that you watch this video on mortgage shopping. Understanding the various mortgage options, requirements, rates, and fees will help you determine how much you can afford to spend on a home, and how much you can easily finance. So ... how much can you afford to borrow? The amount of the loan, the type of loan you select, as well as its annual percentage rate, will determine the amount of your monthly payments. Generally, lenders recommend that your monthly mortgage payments do not exceed 25 to 28% of your gross monthly income.

    Good job on the practice recording. The recording quality sounds good. Curious to know what type of equipment are you using? In addition I thought the performance was good too. I thought the tempo you used for the read is appropriate. Also you sounded helpful and friendly. The only minor glitch I noticed was "the type of loan you select" was read as "the type of the loan you select". But that is a minor error, that can be corrected with an edit. But overall good job.

    I use an AT-2035 mic. My interface is just a $20 cheap one but it works. Then I use audacity for all my recordings.

    Thanks for pointing that out error out! :D

    Peer Feedback:

    This was a good read. Towards the end your accent made it a little hard to understand what you were saying but I think if you slowed down just a bit on that part that issue can be fixed. It was around 20 seconds after, "how much can you afford to borrow?" Before that sentence your tempo was a little slower and once you asked that question you started to speak just a little faster. I would suggest sticking with the slower tempo throughout the whole recording.

    @sbell113 - Thank you for the feedback! Speeding up definitely kind of slurred my words. Still working on this aspect of my reads. :D

    Duanepc,

    Very nice read....
    recording quality-voice sounded a bit muffled...
    Performance: got lost a bit due to the muffled sound...however, I think you did a nice job. I would agree with the other voice talent.a little bit more enthusiasm would have been nice.

    Peer Feedback:

    Your tone is really good! Everything you are saying I can hear clearly but some parts may be a little too slow. There is also a sound during your recording that is most likely from your equipment which is a little distracting. Based on the text I would interpret it as an upbeat read since it starts with the word Congratulations. Even though I love the tone I think it would be more fitting for a an education video or documentary. Keep up the great work!

Here are some steps you can take now to make your IRA work harder for you and help secure a more comfortable retirement.

    Crime Narration - Charleston Church Shooting

    Script:

    The Charleston church shooting was a mass shooting on June 17, 2015 in Charleston, South Carolina in which nine African Americans were killed during a Bible study at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. Three victims survived. This church is one of the oldest black churches in the United States, and it has long been a center for organizing civil rights activities.
    The morning after the attack, police arrested Dylann Roof in Shelby, North Carolina; the 21-year-old white supremacist had attended the Bible study before the shooting. He was found to have targeted members of this church because of its history and stature. Roof was found competent to stand trial in federal court.

    Hi Jshields23,

    NIce job. Acoustics-sounded great to me. The read: Nice job however, it was way too somber for my taste. I guess I m thinking what was the intention of the read. Was it to inform the listener? Was it part of a docu on shootings in the country. The actions of this guy were horrible and a downer for sure. I'm wondering if the read could be somewhat lighter. If my feedback doesn't make sense...no worries I am trying to put into words my feelings as I heard your read.
    Thanks Lenny

    Peer Feedback:

    Hey man. Good stuff.

    The read sounded too monotone for me. And it did sound like you are reading a bit. Doing a monotone read is fine and all but I hitting the important words becomes more important.

    Recording quality is overall good. I could hear it's an improvement from your past recordings.
    There's some hissing in the background. Probably from a fan or computer or whatever. I'm sure you can find a way to work on that, too.

    Keep it up! :D

    The Station

    Script:

    Tucked away in our subconscious is an idyllic vision. We see ourselves on a long trip that spans the continent. We are traveling by train. Out the windows, we drink in the passing scene of cars on nearby highways, of children waving at a crossing, of cattle grazing on a distant hillside, of city skylines and village hills. But uppermost in our minds is the final destination. On a certain day, at a certain hour, we will pull into the station. Bands will be playing and flags waving. Once we get there, so many wonderful dreams will come true and the pieces of our lives will fit together like a completed jigsaw puzzle. How restlessly we pace the aisles, damning the minutes for loitering – waiting, waiting, waiting for the station.

    Nice job with the read. You wanted to see if the read was inspirational. You almost had it. There was a a tad of inspiration but not enough. There is a lot of description in the script as I closed my eyes to listen a lot of the those words got lost.

    The beaver builds its lodge out of inter-tangled twigs and sticks; as freezing weather nears, they plaster their lodge with mud, making a concrete layer that no predator can break through. During the early nineteenth century, the beaver pelt was the single most valuable commodity; the pelt being used for robes, coats, clothing trims, and top hats.

    The script reads like it's for a documentary. If so, I think your read is too intense at some points.

    The read got a bit choppy when you got to the list. You paused heavily on each commas. Try avoiding pausing on them and see how that sounds.

    Peer Feedback:

    Hello there. Good stuff! You have a great voice for these types of reads.

    The read sounds fine. I believe you can work on your articulation a bit as some of the words didn't come through properly.

    You can also work on the editing. Everything sounds really close to each other that the listener won't have any time to process everything that is being said.

    I think the recording quality is great. It should pass for ACX quality but I'm not experienced in that area.

    I can hear how this would be a suitable genre. Cool and laid back are what you're shooting for, but you still need to have energy. The slow pace just drags. Try it again by picking up the tempo. I think there was a little bit of popping on the recording.

    Peer Feedback:

    Hey man. Good stuff.

    Is this your normal speaking voice? Or are you making it sound lower?

    The read is fine but you might need to work on your pacing.

    The recording quality has some popping here and there but it sounds fine, overall.

    Keep it up!

    Peer Feedback:

    Greetings....

    Good attempt. The read/pace is extremely slow. Jazz is one of my favorite music genres hence I listen to a lot of Jazz Stations and their promos have a time constraint hence it is much more faster. My suggestion is to listen to different Jazz stations and hear what they do with their promos it might help.

    best,

    I love the energy and enthusiasm you put into the read. Overall, the read was fairly clear, but it felt like you were slightly backed away from the mic. I can understand that with louder reads, you might want to back off from the mic so as to not blow out the recording, but there are other ways to balance it out. Sounded great! Good luck!

    Peer Feedback:

    Sounded great, loved your enthusiasm in the read. I think the pacing could be a bit quicker to go along with the enthusiasm and keep the same enthusiasm all the way through. Good recording quality as well. Great read :)

    Peer Feedback:

    Good and clear.
    Make some changes on words that you emphasize. 'Whole' had emphasis, but the phrase is 'whole new you'
    Then you emphasize 'be' on the last line when you might want to emphasize 'total'
    Often look for the emphasis on adjectives.
    There are small stops that you should try to omit. Right after 800 fitness/ and yourself/
    Subtle but try reading right through those.
    Also try saying Rapid Results like it is the name of the membership. Again this is subtle, but the read should be that 'Rapid Results' is the catch-phrase name of the membership.

    Peer Feedback:

    Overall, a really good read, something I could imagine listening to on the radio. If there was any critique, it would be the pace near the end. Imagining the reads done by Dennis Haysbert, that last sentence usually has a good amount of space between it and the previous sentence. Also, slowing down that last sentence and really trying to phrase it as a question would give a better conclusion IMO. Excellent work, and Good luck!
