I have been thinking about practising reading. Essentially I plan to just practice reading so that I can get use to my recorded voice. I am not worried about the quality if these practice recordings. So I have an idea. My phone has a recorder on it. So I can just record myself reading using my phone. This would enable me to have practice sessions while I am on lunch break. What do you think of this idea?
#How To Set Up Your Recording Space Since creating a good recording space is so important I have been looking into it. I thought I would share some useful websites and information with everyone. How to build your own vocal booth : https://www.musicianonamission.com/diy-vocal-booth/ Useful information regarding making Vocal Booths : https://www.youtube.com/@Vocalboothtogo I have been told that Packing Blankets can be used. I haven’t tried this yet. Here are the links I have been sent regarding this: Sure-Max 8 Moving & Packing Blankets - Ultra Thick Pro - 80" x 72" (65 lb/dz weight) - Professional Quilted Shipping Furniture Pads Black : https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07CJHH7J8 To hang the blankets (I presume that if you are creating a booth using PVC Piping you probably won’t need these) : YeYeBest Double Curtain Rods 30 to 87 Inch, Metal Extendable Double Drapery Rod Set for Windows, Black : https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B09QFV4KG5?th=1 Curtain Rings with Clips 1.5 Inch Set of 20 Heavy Duty Curtain Hooks for Drapes, Caps, Pictures - Rustproof & Decorative Black Curtain Rings for Bathroom, Living and Guest Room : https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08KWM35C2?th=1 I hope that this information is useful.

Sometimes it’s really fun to just CREATE and SHARE! I hope you take the time to watch the 2 downloads I've attached and I hope they inspire you all over again to use your voice for the betterment of humanity in whatever way you feel called to do so! Here is a 6 min excerpt from a 45 minute video I did back in 2021. I did the audio narration and then learned how to use Premiere Pro doing this video. It took me 2.5 months for the whole thing I had an unexpected gift from doing this – I shared my voice to help make the world a better place and in doing so, it really got me excited about voiceover and creating all over again. The time flew by when creating this video. Sometimes we can get lost in trying to “make money” to survive and lose sight of why we chose to get into voiceover in the first place – which for many is to use our voice to help make our world a better place. It was such a wonderful win-win experience for me creating this – I learned a lot, I got to share my gifts with the world and I had a lot of fun doing it! In case anyone is interested, here’s what I used to create this awesome video: Audio: Audacity and Adobe Audition with Shure SM58 mic and Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 interface; Video Editing: Adobe Premiere Pro Images: All free on Pixabay.com Music: All free music from Youtube Music Library Credits and Motion Graphics/Animation: free MOGRTs (motion graphics templates) files from RoyFx I hope you watch this video and are inspired and re-ignited about how fun it is to create using your voice and share it with the world! P.S. The caption file I included in this post (the 2nd file) has what I found to be a very motivational sharing. I am not religious (I am more metaphysical in my world view) but still I hope you find the short clip as encouraging as I did. No matter what you are experiencing in life right now, God has got your back! Love, peace and blessings to all! LaTonya
Thank you so much Greg for the positive feedback! I feel that if we each do what brings US joy, that positive energy filters out into the world and mass consciousness. So I don't have to wait to see if what your doing is helping our world, I KNOW it will be as long as what you're doing feels great to you in the heart. I thank you for being here and lending your voice and gifts to us all! Blessings, LaTonya
