Given "live" in online sessions over 5-weeks, this course will teach you how to create professional quality voice recordings at home. The course is for people getting started in the voice over industry, as well as anyone else recording their voice for anything from podcasts, audiobooks, or even narrating your own videos. For this kind of recording, the voice is front and center, all by itself. So the audio quality needs to be high. If it isn't, you could be losing voice over jobs, podcast subscribers or audiobook customers. And you'd never know why. Professional Talkers shows you how to record audio at home, on your computer, so it sounds like it came from a professional recording studio. You'll learn that it isn't about how expensive your gear is. It is MUCH more about knowledge and technique. And it isn't nearly as hard as most people think. Learn the step-by-step process I've been using to get paying voice over gigs for the past 10 years. The next course starts this summer - date TBA.
This 10-lesson (17 total short-but-powerful videos) course teaches you the basics of audio recording even if (especially if) you’ve never done any recording before. We’ll show you how to do such awesome audio feats as overdubbing for lush voices and vocal harmony, how to use and create loops, basic multi-track production and audio editing. And the best part – You can do it all without having to spend more than $0-$5 in software or equipment (the $5 is if you don’t already have a mic – even a cheap plastic PC mic). All you need is a computer and access to the internet. We teach you how to do everything with the free software program called “Audacity.”
Upgrade your audio and raise the level of your voice-overs, podcasts, videos and music into the realm of professional audio using the incredible software called Reaper (which is also incredibly inexpensive). Lessons cover the basics like recording and editing in Reaper, as well as some cool time-saving automation tricks for the voice-over folks, like splitting one file into lots of little ones and saving each one with its own file name, plus producing dialogue files with multiple character voices, and lot more. For musicians there is more multi-track recording stuff for singing harmony with yourself, being a 1-man band, creating and working with loops, and a 3-part intro to MIDI for music recording, which shows you how to use virtual instruments such as the synthesizer that comes free with Reaper (ReaSynth), a free piano instrument we download and install together, and drums – using Reaper’s ReaDrums. Plus you’ll learn how to use al MIDI keyboard with Reaper, or if you don’t have one yet, Reaper’s Virtual Keyboard, to play music with your virtual instruments.
This is just what it sounds like – a bundle with both volumes of the Newbies Guide To Audio Recording Awesomeness in one product. So you can truly start from no knowledge with no budget for gear or software (volume 1) and work your way through to being able to produce professional multi-track voice-over and music tracks (volume 2). You can upgrade the equipment and software in your home recording studio in increments of 50-75 dollars until you’re producing like the pros. If you want to dive right into audio recording and learn fast, you’ll save by purchasing both volumes together (BEST DEAL: it would cost $88 to buy each course separately).
