    Frontline Plus

    Script:

    Today is gonna be the best day ever. Since my human got me Frontline Plus, we’re
    running more trails, sniffing more tails, and finding all new places to splash in the mud. Just a little Frontline Plus on my back kills ticks and fleas for a whole 30 days. Because there’s nothing better than getting out and feeling the wind
    in your fur. Vet-recommended Frontline Plus. Live Off The Leash!

    Script:

    This is Nick.
    This is Nora.
    This is Nick's nose.
    This is Nora's nose.
    Nicks nose likes a little air freshener.
    Nora's nose likes a lot.
    Their noses didn't know what to do.
    Until their nosy neighbor Ned told them about new and improved Airwick Airwaves.
    Airwaves have a low setting for Nick's nose and a refreshing, room filling scent for Nora's nose.
    Now, Nick and Nora's noses can live in harmony.

    Martinique

    Script:

    Close your eyes. Inhale the exotic aromas of rich dark coffee, fresh baked baguettes, and old-fashioned toasty Gauloises tobacco wafting across a small market square. You’re undoubtedly somewhere in the south, maybe close to the Riviera, where the summer heat verges on tropical, but the breezes are cool and rattle the awnings of the market stalls. Open your eyes. It’s a hilltop village on the Caribbean island of Martinique, and you’re enjoying one of those customary do-nothing, coffee and wine-sipping, people-watching interludes that the French seem to love so much.

    This is really good. Recording quality is good. A few glottal stops, a problem I’m working on, in front of a few words, such as in front of Almond. Makes it a bit choppy. A few of the dramatic pauses and the confidence in the voice is good.

    Wow, in my humble opinion this is excellent work. A nice natural delivery but also with the right highlighting of keywords thanks for sharing.

    Peer Feedback:

    What a beautiful read, a very polished recording of a very rich voice. My only comment would be that, to my ear, the first sentence sounds a touch halting when compared to the natural flow of the rest of the spot. “We only use...California grown...Blue Diamond Almonds...in our almond milk.” So well done!

    1st To Die By James Patterson (page 109)

    Script:

    Becky DeGeorge, in the bloom of her first full day as Michael's wife, walked out of the hotel lobby holding her husband's hand. She breathed in the cool night air, the first fresh air she had inhaled all day. In the brief span of their marriage, she and Michael had made love several times and taken two steamy showers together. They had poked their heads out for an obligatory but, at last, final brunt with the families. They had begged

    off the trip to Opus One, scurried back upstairs, and popped a last bottle of champagne. Michael had put on a sex video and as they watched the film they played out some unusual and exciting roles. He seemed to have fantasies about wearing women's clothes.

    Do-it-yourself Acupressure

    Script:

    Acupressure, the Eastern method of massaging certain trigger points on the face, can help minimize fine lines. It also strengthens facial muscles and increases circulation to impart a rosy glow. Cross your middle fingers over your index fingers, then touch each of the following five acupressure points with your index finger and hold gently for one minute. First, touch your hairline, in line with the inner corners of your eyes. Next, touch the bridge of your nose. Then, the outer corners of your eyes. Then, just under your nose. And, finally, touch the top of your jawline, just under the ears.

    Peer Feedback:

    I agree with rogue1 about the sound of your read, very soothing. It was also relaxing and comforting. For me, it sounded like you were talking very sweetly to someone, which was pleasant to listen to. One thing stood out to me, which was when you pronounced "circulation." When you pronounced cir-cu-LA-tion, the "la" was higher than the rest of the read, which took it a little out of context and out of the soothing sound. Really liked it, though.

    Importance of having good credit

    Script:

    You should regularly review your credit reports and scores so that you know what to expect when shopping for the best deals on new loans and lines of credit. A good credit score can save you money by helping you qualify for low-interest mortgages, car loans, and credit cards. Lenders are more likely to offer lower interest rates to those with high credit scores because they signify a history of good credit behavior. Lower interest rates mean you'd pay less in interest each month on your credit cards, cars, home, and personal loans. These savings can mean you pay hundreds or even thousands less to your creditors each year.

    Having good credit saves you money even if you aren’t applying for a new loan. It can help you get that great deal on an apartment, that high-paying job you interviewed for, lower car insurance and even life insurance premiums. It can also keep you in the good grace of with your existing creditors, making it less likely that they’ll ratchet up your interest rate.

    The quality of the recording sounds great; it really captures the richness of your voice. The performance is also very good. It sounded like it took a little time to fall into an easy rhythm, but by the second sentence it sounded much more smooth and natural. I would take a look at,"Lower interest rates mean you'd pay less in interest each month on your credit cards, cars, home, and personal loans." Specifically, "on your credit cards" stuck out a bit in terms of pitch and flow. However, a nice read overall.

    Peer Feedback:

    Good read and a very sellable voice you have nice job. In my opinion the only critique I would have it's just too relax slightly or like everybody always says more conversational but I like your authoritative voice thanks for sharing.

    Peer Feedback:

    Your voice has a nice lightness to it; you sound very approachable. In the first sentence, I would suggest letting the pitch lower a bit into the end rather than raising up. This helps ground your introduction and set up what comes next. A slight pause between "always fun to me" and "and developed my love for cooking" would help give your last sentence a more laid back pacing to match the ease you bring to the rest of the read. Overall really nice!

Now that you’ve mastered so many tricky vocal hurdles so successfully, maybe relax and smooth out the read a bit more. Well done!

    A Christmas Carol - Chapter One: Marley was Dead

    Script:

    Marley was dead: to begin with. There is no doubt whatever about that. The register of his burial was signed by the clergyman, the clerk, the undertaker, and the chief mourner. Scrooge signed it. And Scrooge's name was good upon 'Change, for anything he chose to put his hand to. Old Marley was as dead as a door-nail.
    Mind! I don't mean to say that I know, of my own knowledge, what there is particularly dead about a door-nail. I might have been inclined, myself, to regard a coffin-nail as the deadest piece of ironmongery in the trade. But the wisdom of our ancestors is in the simile; and my unhallowed hands shall not disturb it, or the Country's done for. You will therefore permit me to repeat, emphatically, that Marley was as dead as a door-nail

    High Energy, great for this type of commercial! Is the dialect natural or "put on"? either way I think it's cool. Almost lose some words there in the middle -- but I think pacing can fix it.

    I've got new ears to this, but it sounds like you might have processed out some of the roundness of your voice -- I'm not sure if "boxy" is the correct term, but it's missing something. Overall, sounds clean (maybe a touch of peaking in the beginning)

    Hi Evoorg! It sounded like you were recording in a tunnel, I would try recording in a more soundproof room....a lot of static in the background.

    On the "4K TV" I think this could be shorter, the "TV" was dragged out a little. On the part "But did the salesman mention to her that along with that beautiful resolution" I would change the pitch of our voice such that you are making the salesman seem less-trustworthy for not alerting Jane to the fact that he left off important info. Maybe adding skepticism in your voice? Also, avoid the glautel pause after resolution. Thanks!

    Hi! This is my first time experimenting with the "envelope" tool on audacity. I am trying to smooth out certain words like :participation" and "appealing" so they don't redline. Comments welcomed and thanks...

    Hi Les Jr, The redline you could normalize after all other effects and set it at -3dba.
    As far as the performance goes very smooth and flows nicely as well! I would only mention 2 things; maybe try more highlighting especially near the end, I liked the first part up to " visible to consumers?" The ending kind of trailed off. The other minor thing is the S's are kind of slurred with the H's like in ensure where there is no h. Hope that helps, thanks for sharing.

    Hi Rich! Great job on the producing of this. I liked your cadence, the only "drawn out word" I found awkward was between the words "story about ". The word "Story" was dragged on a bit too long. Besides that I liked the cadence, volume, and pace.

    Peer Feedback:

    Thanks Les, probably story was drawn out too much I was trying to hit that word. Maybe should have hit prior word of driven or both advocate and driven? Thanks for your help!

    Great enthusiasm in your voice and it's delivered in my opinion in a personable way to the listener. The only critique I would have is your infections at the end of the sentence seem to be predictable and or similar if you listen to the last couple of words you seem to inflect in the same pattern however nice read and thanks for sharing.

    Peer Feedback:

    Love your voice, very very commanding; the opening dialogue was very good, but by the time you got to the second and third sentences, you had the same kind of hits and inflections so it never changed...Other than that, change up the flow of your delivery and you are a talent to reckon with

    Sticks and Pucks

    There was a time, not long ago, when girls were told they couldn’t paly team sports.
    This generation of girls no longer has to face this obstacle, as the barriers to entry are

    teams, college teams, and even a professional league, women’s hockey is growing,

    Bike bottles

    Script:

    # 4 Bike Bottles
    With the growing popularity of eyelet-mounted bags and cargo cages, bike tourers and
    bikepackers are increasingly looking for ways to add mounts to their fork or downtube to
    attach such accessories. In addition, many desert routes and trips through warmer
    climates require extra hydration, so mounting extra bottle cages or oversized cages
    under the downtube, on the fork, or even on the chainstays is often a necessity for
    supplementing water capacity. These affordable workarounds can also serve to
    upgrade older bikes for those looking to try their hand at bikepacking but without the
    cash to invest in a dedicated rig.

    Peer Feedback:

    Good, clear sounding voice, I think the volume is a bit low though. Still, good recording quality. Nice performance. At the start where you say "....the majority of it remains to be driven and enjoyed." I think taking a pause after the word "remains" would make that sentence more clear in its meaning. I think the meaning of this sentence is that while Rt 66 may not exist anymore, a large part of it still does exist and is waiting to be enjoyed. Good work.

All this simply means that the job is done in 40% less time. So waste no time taking advantage of our nationwide sale.

    Peer Feedback:

    I concur with the previous observation

    Peer Feedback:

    It seems like you have a tendency to speed up the longer sentences. Also, try to emphasize the product name and its key features in your delivery; these are the most important words in a commercial read!

    Borden’s Milk Truck

    Script:

    The Borden’s Milk Truck was part of the fabric of American life in the 1950s.

    war has changed

    Script:

    War has changed
    war ... has changed.
    It's no longer about nations, ideologies, or ethnicity.
    It's an endless series of proxy battles fought by mercenaries and machines. War, and its consumption of life, has become a well-oiled machine.
    War has changed. ID-tagged soldiers carry ID-tagged weapons, use ID-tagged gear. Nano-machines inside their bodies enhance and regulate their abilities. Genetic control, information control, emotion control... battlefield control. Everything is monitored and kept under control.
    War - has changed. The age of deterrence has become the age of control. All in the name of averting catastrophe from Weapons of Mass Destruction. And he who controls the battlefield, controls history.
    War has changed... When the battlefield is under total control, war becomes routine

    Peer Feedback:

    You have a very deep, powerful voice, and it really came through on this recording. The only minor issue I noticed was what sounded like a bit of a stumble on "deterrence," but it was very good otherwise!

    Peer Feedback:

    Thanks for your input and thanks for taking out time to listen markdcstrong

    Peer Feedback:

    Wow! Your voice is perfect for this (I especially loved the pacing and emphasis in the first line)! The only critique I can offer is a few small things:

    - Pronunciation ("ideologies" should be pronounced I.D.-ahl-ogies; "deterrence" is mispronounced, but it doesn't distract for me - I think it actually works here; a slight stumble on "averting") (normally, 'deterrence' and 'averting' would sound like "urr" instead of "air")

    - Pacing. You may want to add longer pauses between sentences (1) Try adding a slight (half-second?) pause just before "ID-tagged soldiers..." (2) A longer pause before "Nano-machines..." (3) The pacing on "Genetic/information/emotional control" is good, but add a longer pause before "battlefield control" (note the ellipsis instead of the commas) (4) a slight pause before "Everything is monitored..." (5) the pause between "All" and "in the name" could actually be shortened a little (6) you may want to add a slight pause between "total control," and "war becomes", just for effect.

    - Tone. My only suggestion would be to swap the third "War has changed" (0:45) with the last one (1:03). They both sound great, but tonally would fit better with the surrounding read of the other's paragraph. (Just a personal opinion)

    - Editing. There's a long dead space at the end of your recording (1:11-2:15). Be sure to edit that out.

    This may look like a lot of criticism, but it's nit-picking a VERY good (professional-sounding) read. Nice job and good luck!

    Peer Feedback:

    I like the tone you have on this spot. There is a nice seriousness about it. I would suggest not going so high in your tone on the word "ever." It made it pop out of the context. Also, on "But, here he was," the tone seems a little more light-hearted than is called for and that you use elsewhere. If you bring the peaks down, it will maintain that seriousness. I like the overall pacing; I would tighten up the time between between "work" and "police." On the sound quality, there is a plosive on "police," and I think I heard some mouth noise throughout. Nice work.

    Thank you, SteveVO, great comments. Im always trying to have less mouth noise!

    I like the read. I'm curious how you chose the pacing. You made the first sentence and the first part of the next sentence as one sentence. I'm not sure if you meant it but it did sound like that.

    Everything sounded pretty clear on my end. I understood every word.

    Keep it up! :D

    Besides the recording quality, which you’re working on, the delivery and voice are great. Sounds sincere and pacing is good

    Peer Feedback:

    Really great, inviting read. The tone of your delivery is authoritative, yet friendly and reassuring. Your voice has a lovely, conversational quality. One technical thing I’m hearing (which my own reads suffer from), is a bit of “lip smack” (a bite of a granny smith apple should clear that right up). Another nit-pick is that your pronunciation of the T’s in “important” in the next to the last line seem a bit clipped, almost like you’re putting emphases on the word to make sure you pronounce it correctly. Just a bit of a “bump in the road” in an otherwise smooth read. Well done!

    Peer Feedback:

    Yes, nice read. Very pleasant sound quality and well-suited for this type of read. Really like "You'll be covered" and "that's a good feeling." Very friendly quality to your voice.

    Peer Feedback:

    I'm not sure if you had edited the script you read versus the one referenced here, but some words were switched around towards the end. That aside, your pace and tone were consistent throughout, and I think you'll sound great once you can get your hands on some equipment!

    Very whimsical script which allows you to show off your ability to master tricky dialogue. The change in character voices is fun as well. On the tech side, I’m hearing a sort of echo, like you’re recording in a cavernous space. Might try a filter on the recording as a quick fix, though I feel sound quality in home recording is something we all struggle with. Well done!

    I would just try to speak more naturally in your own voice. I believe you are trying to sound like someone other than yourself and that is extremely difficult. I would just do a recording for practice or you could post it here as well of your biography so when you're talking about yourself just speak very naturally but clear and precise. Another thing you could do if you speak a different language fluently is try doing voice over in that language I'm sure there's a market for it on international voice-over sites. Good luck kid!

    Peer Feedback:

    I agree with Rich Young. This type of copy calls for more of a natural, real-person, person next door read, not so much of a dramatic read. Think of it as just talking normally to a person next to you, guiding them through something. You'd probably be very real and conversations. Try that on this.
