Finishing Up Another Fiverr Gig

A few days ago I finished recording for another Fiverr gig. This one was different from most of my gigs; I had to count from 0 to 100! I also had to say "plus, minus, times, divided by, equals," and things like "good job" and "next level." I think the man who hired me needed my voice for a math videogame, considering what my script said.

I'm so glad I took the next step of getting on Fiverr, and I think the more gigs I get, I'll slowly get more and more. And one of the best parts (besides making moola ๐Ÿค‘) is using the gig experiences into my portfolio.

Mic Trouble Fixed!

Finally, my microphone is working again! How I solved the problem? I had to keep changing the cord to different USB ports until it worked. It turns out; some ports are stronger than others, and my computer has around 10 USB ports, and some of them had different numbers showing how strong they are, and I got the right one. A big reason I'm writing this is so if this issue comes up again in the future, then I can go back and read this to know what to do. Hope this helps Simeon! ๐Ÿ˜œ

Trouble With Mike

I've been having trouble with my microphone (I thought "Mike" could be catchy instead of "my mic" ๐Ÿ˜œ), where it keeps disconnecting. I've had this issue before, but that was a few months ago. I didn't have to solve the problem, because it just started working again.ย Since I use an XLR cabled microphone, I have an interface, a box that works as a converter to my computer and has things like volume and gain control. When the issue came up again, I thought it might be the interface, so I ordered a new one, which cost $50. Well, unfortunately, it turns out it wasn't the interface, but I do know it's something wrong with the computer or microphone. I do have a 10-year warranty for the mic, so if it turns out that it's the problem, then I can always send it back and get a new one.

My First Pro Gig

Last week I finally made a step I'd been waiting for; I signed up to be a pro voice actor on Fiverr! If you're not familiar with Fiverr, it's a site where you can hire professionals to do stuff like art, voice acting, photography, etc.

I've had my eye on it for a while because it pays pretty well compared to Casting Call Club (which is a great site to get started in voice-over), and there are not very many good child actors on there.

I then made a video of me recording with my demo and put up a few other demos and past recordings I've done.

Yesterday, a man contacted me and wanted to hire me as a short character for a video game he's making. I'm very excited for my first pro gig! I sent him a test recording so he can hear my voice. I'm waiting for his response.

The whole project will cost him around $30 with 34 words in the script, and other things like commercial rights.

If you want to check out my gig, here's the link (unfortunately it changed the audio quality in the demo).
