Re: Diet?

Well, tea is used as a beverage to help dry your throat and mouth a bit (if needed), similar to how the green apples work for Ray and Sierra. The idea for most people is to be hydrated so that your...

Re: Some voice stuffs of mine

That sounds great! I love your voice over work. That stuff definitely needs a revamp on your new equip. And you're very welcome. I was kinda surprised no one has replied to you yet.

The voice is...

Re: My Voice-Overs

I'm kinda confused by your builtin parachute. You're claiming that it isn't a masterpiece, but you practiced a lot and have enough confidence to describe your work as a product of your talent. That...

Smile Re: Some voice stuffs of mine

Hmm... after listening to your voice over demos (which were great), these two feel rather flaccid to me. I've heard you do an array of voice over emotions well and shift your voice appropriately, and...

Re: My Recordings

Are you doing the female voices as well? The first one I can tell is you, but the other two are quite genuine. Your voice morphing skill is quite good, but if you are doing the female voices, then...

Re: Hey guys! Feedback wanted!

I agree. I also thought it was interesting, and music makes things more magical, yes, but its purpose changes when the music becomes the focal point and the voice is more of a background effect. It...

Re: First Demo Reel

Not bad, but you know people don't hire for impressions, right? If the original voice actor is still alive, they're just going to hire the original voice, because it's not the voice alone, it's the...

Re: Any old shows that should be revamp?

Oohh, I really liked Beast Wars. It would be nice to get a revamp of that. Beast Machines... I don't remember at all, lol.

Re: How to do a natural high male voices

You know the way you spell that makes it a lot easier, lol. I do understand the linguistic principles behind the accents, but there's something magical about the accent that I think your description...

Re: Any old shows that should be revamp?

It would be nice if shows that do get revamped don't get killed, like He-Man. But if I wanted to see something revamped, I'd like to see ... crap, I can't think of anything that hasn't already been...

Re: How to do a natural high male voices

You're welcome! Wow, that's great. I couldn't tell you were Aussie at all, haha. I spend about a quarter of my time, sometimes much more, practicing accents too.

Re: How to do a natural high male voices

I couldn't really hear the roaring, actually. But as for Sonic, there shouldn't be any chest resonance because Sonic is always done a head voice. It's gotten lower over the years, but they're all...

Hmm.. it's too heavily altered for me to tell anything, but it sounds kinda similar. I'm not sure what's causing your pain, but it's probably because you're using too much of your throat muscles...

Re: Trying to Branch Out

Another thing that I'd like to point out is that there are voice actors who find their own voice repulsive, and have no idea why people like it (like Lisa Ortiz, voice of Lina Inverse, Slayers), but...

Re: Maintaining Naturalness

Glad to help! Sounds like you're making some great progress.

Lol, I feel the same way with my regular voice. I feel like I sound less genuine using my mundane, light breathy voice, even if I do...

Question Re: How to do a natural high male voices

He's doing it the same way Tara Strong morphs her voice, with mastery of the vocal cords. They might've had coaches to teach them voice control, or maybe they're just voice geniuses. Either way, you...

Oh, no, that isn't what I meant. Your choices as characters were fine, but I'm just saying there isn't much significance in posting them all since we don't get enough time to distinguish them from...

Cool Re: How to do a natural high male voices

Yeah, what Jake said. It's important to relax your vocal cords because straining your throat is going to strangle your sound, crack the voice and possibly even damage you vocal cords.

Post Re: So many questions, I don't even know where to start!

Sounds like quite a predicament you're in. I wouldn't be too worried about you losing range if you've got a wide range, but I do think that your range would get wider, as you can go lower with a male...

Cool Re: Travis Roberts Voice Demos

It's definitely not your headphones. It sounds like he's recording it in front of his monitor and the the reverb is coming off the monitor. There's also a bit of background noise, which I'm guessing...

Post Re: Improving your acting abilities?

That's a really interesting technique. It likens voice acting to singing, as in a musical, as opposed to a dead read, where you're relying on yourself. It's a handy tool, but when you do work at a...

I agree with Travis. If you listen to professional demos, the average span per segment is 10-15 seconds (usually one character), and yours on average was 4-5 seconds, so an additional 4-11 seconds...

Talking Re: Maintaining Naturalness

I think what you're going through is similar to what some people go through when they do tests. It's best to just not overthink it and go with the flow. Try relaxing, do a couple rehearsals, then...

The character list seems kinda moot to me, 'cause you can't really tell the difference between characters. I mean, it doesn't take away from the reel, 'cause Cree Summer sounds pretty much exactly...
