My sister's boyfriend's family talked to me about them wanting to make a home studio. Most of the kids in the family play instruments and sing, the mom is especially good at singing. They have been asked that they should record themselves, but they don't know what right equipment to get. They knew I did voice-over and audio engineering, so they asked me what they should get. So a few days later I sent them links to the equipment they could get. I gave them three choices depending on how much they were willing to spend: 

$471            with TWO Audio-Technica AT2020 mics, an audio interface, stands, and acoustic panels
$631            with TWO Rode NT1-A mics, an audio interface, stands, and acoustic panels
$1,111         with TWO Blue Baby Bottle mics, an audio interface, stands, and acoustic panels

When I went to their house, they had a whole room they wanted to make a studio. Unfortunately, it was very echoey and was full of reverb. They asked me if they would need the "echo stuff." So I included three dozen 12x12 (a square foot) acoustic foam panels to reduce the reverb. They also said they wanted several mics if there were several of them recording (like a singer and a guitar). So I gave them the choices between the Audio Technica AT2020 for $115 each, the Rode NT1-A for $195 each (I bought this one when it was $360, so the price has had a dramatic drop), or the Blue Baby Bottle Mic for around $350 each. Then, I put two microphone stands in the list (I found a bundle of my favorite cheap stands for just $33 for two stands). Then I put an audio interface jsut like mine, but with four channels instead of one, by Behringer. 

So they chose the $631 rout. I think they chose very well!

When I was going through things with the lady that wanted me to record the audiobook, she asked me to record a sample page from her book. I did and sent it to her. She asked if I could add effects to that audio quality, then gave me a sample of another narrator clip.
The main thing I noticed was that the narrator added a lot of EQ and compression. That makes your voice sound really crisp and come out more, and it helps a lot if you have a deep booming voice. In my personal opinion, I recommend that you don't use too much of it (it's fine if you add a little bit) for an audiobook. Even if you sound "epic," it's usually very distracting for a listener. But it's not always bad. In fact, it's very useful for online commercials, E-Learner videos, tutorials, intros, and sometimes character acting. The lady wanted it like that, so I added the effects, and she was satisfied.


This is the first sample without the effects:


The second sample with the effects:

I was going to blog about this a month ago, but we were still figuring things out.

Anyway, a month ago, an author contacted me and asked if I was interested in narrating her audiobook (from home). She said it would be around 70,000 words long! So we talked for a month over different things like payment and content of the book. We agreed on $200 for every finished produced hour, and the book should be around 8-10 hours long. Just recently, she contacted me and said that we'd begin the recording process early next spring. It is in quite a while, but I've heard many voice actors say that voice over takes a lot of waiting.

I watch a lot of Mike Russel, an audio engineer and YouTuber with 140,000 subscribers, on Youtube to learn how to use tools in Adobe Audition. He's (at least I think) the best YouTuber that teaches how to use Audition. How he explains what he does and how to do things are great, and he's very experienced in the audio engineering world. He lives in England, Europe.

He's actually in California right now to visit other people. I thought this would be a great opportunity to meet him, but unfortunately, he's only staying in southern CA. He's been doing a vlog since the start of October (when he left for CA), so I've been able to keep up to date with what he's doing and who gets meet.

Four days ago, I got a message from someone on Fiverr. They sent me a short animation with a separate script. They needed me to voice a young ten-year-old boy, and he had 37 words. My prices on Fiverr are $10 for every 50 words, so the amount in all would be $10. On my gig, you can order extra things like proofreading, background music, one-day delivery, etc. They asked if the music included sound design (adding sound effects). I told them it doesn't, but that I do sound design, but I don't advertise it on Fiverr. I said I'd be willing to help them out with it. So I sent them the lines for the voice-over part, and now we're figuring out the audio engineering part. I want to charge them $40 for the music and the sound design.

A while back, you may remember I got cast or two characters for an animated short film I wrote about in a previous blog post. They just recently finished the animation! It turned out great, I think! It was a harder commission since it took more emotion, and I was playing two very similar characters. One of the characters, Ben, was around eight years old, so I had to sound younger. The other character, Parker, was about 13 years old, so I used my natural voice. The whole process of casting, practicing, and turning in lines took around a month or two. I didn't get to meet the rest of the cast, but that's common for most parts I get cast. Here's the finished animation:

Yesterday I got to visit a real recording studio!! A friend of my dad's who went to the same school as him lives near us, and we just recently found out he's an audio engineer and has his own studio! So he invited us to his house. IT WAS AN AWESOME EXPERIENCE!

Here are some pics I took:

Here's a pic of the inside of his recording COMPLETELY soundproof booth. It was AWESOME! It was my natural habitat! It was so quiet on the inside! He built inside the main room of the house.


Aaaad here's a pic of his computer setup. I guessed that he probably uses Pro Tools, and I was right. Pro Tools is one of the best audio softwares available. He even had a custom programmed keyboard where each button does a different effect!


The whole experience was awesome, and I know that's what I'd like to be doing in ten years. It gave me some ideas and he told me a lot about what he does. He's not a voice actor himself, but people rent the studio for a few hours to their voice-overs. I hope to go there again soon and get some more wisdom!]]>

Last week I finished episode 200 for the Pioneering Today Podcast! One of my clients, Melissa Norris (or for me M.K.N., da BOSS, or Mrs. Norris), is the host of the Pioneering Today Podcast. I started working for her around episode 115. 

My mom was/is great friends with her, so she suggested that I could help edit the podcast (well actually full-on edit it). She knew Mrs. Norris had a podcast and was having to spend extra time editing it herself. At that time I had already been editing another podcast for a year or to, and was excited to try taking on another podcast. 

As of now, I've edited over 300 podcast episodes! I don't know the exact amount of episodes I have edited, but by looking at the podcasts I can tell an approximate. Also, the average amount of hours I spend editing an episode is around 3 hours and 30 minutes, so that means I've edited for over 1,000 hours!

I've had different ideas of what I'd like my future to be like, career-wise, and here are my ideas for what I'd like to be doing in ten years:

I'd love to still do voice acting, maybe live acting. I'd specifically enjoy voice narration rather than commercial voice acting or character voice acting because that seems so far the type I enjoy most. Most people think voice acting is voicing famous characters for Disney, Dreamworks, Pixar, etc, but you have to be really good, experienced, some-what famous. And almost always there's going to be an audition better than yours. I've heard pro voice actors say the average professional voice actor will get cast for characters 1/15 auditions. But who knows, maybe I could be working for big companies like those. What would be really awesome is if I can be a pro voice actor by the time I'm 16.

As for audio engineering, I would love to get an internship by the time I'm 18 with a professional sound designer or a sound design company and learn as much as I can. I don't imagine myself going to college for voice over or audio engineering, I think there are other ways of getting good training and knowledge info and practice for a cheaper price. Then after an internship, get a job at a sound design company, then maybe a few years after that possibly start my own audio engineering company. 

Those are my future "hopes and dreams."

Ok, you saw the title, so you know what's coming! A few days ago I was watching a video by Mike Russel, and he was talking about using the Dynamics option in Adobe Audition. Now, I don't know a lot about the tool, so I still want to spend time learning how to use it. But basically, it takes out everything under a set number of decibels. I currently have it set to -20 dB, but I can customize it whenever I like. Anything quieter than -20 dB will be completely erased.

I've now used this tool in over 3 episodes and played around with it to find my favorite specific setting on it. It's a pretty awesome tool! When I first used it, it would sometimes cut the end of a sentence to abruptly. But have that fixed now, and I've even used it for my voice over!

I got cast as Parker from the other blog post I wrote about! It's been exciting, not just because I got cast, but because out of 125 AUDITIONS I WAS CHOSEN! Now that's a large number to me! And there's more: the director also wants me to audition for Travis the younger brother too! SCORE  *pretends to shoot a basketball in the hoop and makes it*
But they want me to record the script today, but they still need to finish writing the script. I then responded and said I could record it within their deadline, and that I'd love to audition for the role of Travis (by the way I found out and responded on the second day on the week that falls on the 8th of the 9th month in the year of our Lord 2019 ~~(AKA 9/8/2019 - #summerpracticallyover).

I'm now waiting for their response.



UPDATE: THEY CAST ME FOR TRAVIS TOO!!!

Last week I auditioned for an upcoming animated short. They hadn't named it yet but it's supposed to be like the movie The Iron GiantThe director said that she and a friend were entering in their animation in a contest (I don't know which one though), and they needed voices for the characters. They had four open roles: Parker (the older brother), Travis (the younger brother), Brian (the dad), and Samantha (the mom).

Here's some artwork they've shared for the characters (they didn't have one of the character Travis though):

I auditioned for the role of Parker. They had pictures of the character (I can't show them here though), and even just an image of the character gave me an idea of Parker: I'm guessing he's more of the adventure type with a strong imagination, which helped me "become" the character. From the time I wrote this, there were around 80 auditions for just the Parker character! But what I think is gonna give me a big chance of getting cast for him? I'm the only voice actor to audition with a natural voice for the age range of the character: around 13. For a while, my audition was at the bottom of the list of other auditions, so I didn't have a lot of upvotes (any member of CCC can vote or comment) on my audition because people couldn't find it. The top voted audition had nine upvotes, though it was an adult female doing a young voice, so it wasn't natural. Within the past day, my audition got 5 votes! (Keep in mind though that for how many votes someone has doesn't affect the actual casting).]]>

A few days ago I auditioned for a role from a casting call for a children's audio drama podcast. They had a link to their first (and only) episode they created. I listened to it and thought it was pretty good. I did think the sound design could be better though. The sounds weren't "ambient" enough and the music cut too fast. The sound effects were also from a cheap free sound effect library, but they tend to not have very many unique, and I have 5000+ personal sound effects and songs. I'm considering offering to help in that area as well as voice acting. Which brings me to that fact that I auditioned for the "storyteller" part. They need several people to either narrate the stories or do fun voices like goblins and kings and fairies. I read, recorded, and sent the audition for the role. The director actually said I had a big chance of getting the role because of my young teen voice (just about everybody else is over 18, so it's rare to get a voice as young as mine). Also, the role is paying a small amount of $10 per episode you voice act in. That seems fair to me since I know I'd enjoy it. They actually don't have a deadline, so I'm guessing they'll cast people here and there, but I'm guessing it'll end by the end of September.

A few months ago on CCC (Casting Call Club), I found a Christian casting call that needed two adults; a dad and a narrator. They also posted the story and script.

The script was about a dad and his two kids out fishing on a boat on a lake. The two kids start fighting until at one point the older brother accidentally knocks the younger brother's fishing pole in the water and the pole sinks. After that they pray to get it back, and then they try fishing out the fishing pole with another pole. It doesn't work and so they go home. The younger boy wants to pray again and so they do. The next morning they try again and get it back. That was the short summary.

I messaged the director of the casting call and asked why they didn't have roles open for the two kid characters. He responded back saying that they were holding live auditions in person at their own studio, but if I wanted I could send him an audition for one of the boys. So I chose some lines from the script and recorded them, then sent it back. Since this was during the summer, they said they were doing a lot of Christian summer camps and wouldn't be able to respond right away. About two weeks later the director responded back and said they thought my voice was perfect for David, (the older brother) and cast me! I was really excited about that news, especially since this was also gonna be a paid role.

It was still summer, so they were still helping out at churches and things like that. A month or two later he asked if I could do a live call with him so we could go over the script. Once we were on the call, the man was very kind and polite and introduced himself. He had just last year been put in charge of LifeLine Audio along with one or two other people. What I got really excited about is that he was very familiar with Adventures in Odyssey, a big Christian audio drama company hosted by Focus on The Family. He also worked a little with Lamplighter Theatre, another Christian audio drama company.

We went over the script and he gave me some pointers and personal notes on the script. The next day I recorded all my lines and am now waiting for my next step.

One of my mom's friend's starting a podcast, so my mom let her know that I edit podcasts. She responded back and said she would love to hire me, so I offered to edit an episode for her for free. So, 4 days ago (Friday) she gave me an interview she recorded with someone for me to edit. 

I already had some episodes to finish that weekend so I didn't start on it until Monday two days later. It was... Stressful. The episode was pretty hard to edit, and now I'm considering not working for her (but she may not hire me anyway) unless the pay is worth the time.

I am trying to save up money and earn as much as I can, but again her episodes can take a long time and maybe more then I can handle. I just finished the episode this morning and emailed it to her. I am now awaiting her response!

Today I got a Fiverr gig, but this time it was different from most of my gigs. This was for a videogame advertisement, but it was in German. In the ad (it was a live-action one, but I can't show you due to privacy) there was a young teen that looked around my age, but of course, he spoke in German. They wanted me to say what he said but in English. The ad was only 30 seconds long, and my character "boy" as they named him, had only around 5 sentences. They paid $55, which may seem like a lot for a few sentences, but they paid extra so that I have to match my words up with the boy's mouth in the ad. I decided to send it quickly (I sent it within the hour they hired me) so I could get extra tips and maybe a review, which is what I'm really trying to get; reviews that is (but I don't mind tips!). I'm waiting for their response (I sent it this morning, but they're in Germany so as I'm writing this at around 5:30 pm it's in the middle of the night for them), and I hope they got everything they need!

About a month ago, I got a new pair of headphones, and are called the Samson SR850 Semi-Open-Back Studio Reference Headphones. Yep, it sure is a fancy long name! They're built explicitly for recording studios; they're very comfortable and sturdy, and give "honest" sound I guess you can say. As in, they don't add more base to the audio playback as regular headphones would. The audio is very crisp, and it has a cord connector for interfaces, which means I can listen to myself as I speak, at the same time! I think they're one of the best pair of headphones I've had, though they aren't convenient for moving around with them. They were only built for studios where you stay in one fixed position. I do have earphones though for when I move around a lot, like chores, walks, or to relax.

I don't think I've said this before, but on Fiverr and CCC (Casting Call Club), I've been getting some recommendations and reviews!

These are from CCC:

Those were from clients, directors, and fellow voice actors I worked with for projects.

These are from more clients from Fiverr.
It's especially important to get reviews on Fiverr since when people see you, they usually look for the reviews to see if I was easy to work with and professional. I'm happy I got five reviews so far, which might not seem like a lot, but it's still something, and I hope to get more in the future.

Today I made a video of me editing to show people that would be interested in hiring me for editing their podcast. Although the video may have been a little too long; it was around 15 minutes. If I were to present it to people, then it could get boring and annoying quickly. I didn't want to have to re-record it since it took a while to do the whole video, and I had to edit it afterward. My dad gave me the idea of breaking up the video so that I could present it in different pieces. If one part was me adding effects, I could snip a few minutes of it, and that could be one thing I could show them.

Here's the video I made:

A lot of things have happened these past few weeks, getting set up on Fiverr finally being one. I feel like I've gotten further with my talent, but of course, "I have much to learn!" One of the podcasts I've been editing for almost 3 years now is now paying per episode (before it was more of a practice thing, but every once in a while he would pay me $50 or $100), so I'm really excited that I'm now starting to make better money. 

I'm saving up to get a decent car by the time I can drive, and I also want to set aside money to go on a trip to France. 

I'm hoping within the next few years I can get an agent (yep, I wanna upgrade!) to find the jobs for me. If/when I go 100% professional in the voice-over world, I would like to voice act for shows and movies. But that's a very tight and competitive situation to get that far up, so I think I'd prefer to narrate for audiobooks, online explainer videos, commercials, etc. 

I'd also like to do audio engineering, which I'd prefer to do as my main job. Then I'd like to work for those big studios like Disney, Pixar, 20th Century Fox, etc, which means it would probably mainly be specifically sound design. The only problem is that if I somehow did get a job with a big studio, they'd want me to be at their own studio, that means I would have to travel a lot, versus voice acting which I could do at home (I like traveling, but there's only so much I can bear). But if (and I plan to) have a family that could be fun to take them with me for vacations.

I've also had an idea for my future house to have a separate building next to the house to use as my own personal studio for voice acting and audio engineering.

Well, those are my future ideas, hopes, and plans for when I'm over 21 (I'm only 13, so I got a long way to go!)

The very first Fiverr gig I got was for a videogame a company was going to pitch to some publishers (this was a month from the time I wrote this). later I contacted the man who hired me and asked how the pitches were going. He said they were going great! 3 are interested in publishing it, but he couldn't tell me since he was signed under a contract to keep it private. I was very excited (and I still am)! If it goes well, then this could be my first big voice job. He also said if it goes well, then he'll hire me again to do more voices.

Then he sent me the trailer!


I think it looks awesome! I really hope it goes well!

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 🤑) is using the gig experiences into my portfolio.

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! 😜

I've been having trouble with my microphone (I thought "Mike" could be catchy instead of "my mic" 😜), 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. 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.

An actor in one of the shows I enjoy listening to, Jim Custer, passed away May 5th. He was known to be a great actor with a very flexible and wide range of character voices. I especially love his voice because it has such a warm quality. If the title doesn't make sense, then listen to the podcast link below.

Listen here to a podcast episode tribute talking about his life.

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).

If you read the blog post right before this one, then you'll know that I auditioned for the character "Slightly" in a Peter Pan Dub. Well, an hour later, after I auditioned, they cast me! That was the fastest I had ever been auditioned. I sent him a friend invite on Discord, and am now awaiting his response.

Today I sent out in audition (along with a bunch of other ones) for the character "Slightly" in a Peter Pan dub. I tried to do a younger voice for this character.

Here's my audition:

Yesterday I got cast for another role! The role was Lucas, although it's going to be a small role this time. The character I'm pretty sure is from a video game, and the casting call host does a lot of dubs for favorite video games. I sent two auditions because the first one I sent the casting call host said it just wasn't quite right, so I sent another. This role also seemed to be more emotional than my usual auditions.

Here is the audition I sent for Lucas:

Well, I just got cast in another casting call for, you guessed it - Tails the fox! This is now my 4th time playing as him! Along with Tails, I also got cast for "Charmy Bee," another character from the video game.

These are more paid roles (but not that much money), I get $20 per character, so $40 for all of it. I'm just about to send out two more auditions on Casting Call Club. It seems like I've suddenly been flooded with voice acting and audio engineering opportunities! Taking this journey down the "audio" road has been a great ride, and I've been learning so many new things.
