The script didn't come through. I messaged you my personal email address. Could you try attaching it there? I ordered a mic this weekend and can start recording as soon as that gets to me.

Jamie Jane it is. Just let me know when you need it.

Since there was the discussion on the microphone, is mine okay? I know I could invest in an upgrade, but I would rather not if it is not necessary.

it seems fine, as long as there is no background noise it will do, but you want to wait til you get a mic, then i'm ok with it, waiting will give me more time to work on other set of the video, it's whatever you need to do, i'm in no hurry.

regarding microphones:
while it's true that the quality of the mic can affect the quality of your recording, most amateur problems come from a combination of other things

1) Make sure you have a good signal when recording. If the waveform is so loud that it gets flat on top, it will be distorted. If the waveform is too small, by the time you amplify it enough to hear it, it will sound hissy. Look at the following waveforms, and never submit any that look like either of the two extremes (too fat or too skinny)

http://www.knowzy.com/Images/Steely_Dan-Peg-Waveforms-Audio-Technica-AT-LP120-USB-Compared_To-CD-Orig.jpg
The signal at the left is too skinny and it would not compare well when played beside the good signal on the right.

http://transcribeyourclass.ca/HTS%20Help/images/ATT01477.jpg
Likewise, the signal on the left here is too hot, and it will be distorted. In this picture, the wave form on the right is preferred.


2) Plosives (popped P) and sibilance (Hissy S)
I think Audacity has a way to correct sibilance. Plosives are best addressed with a pop filter
http://www.musiciansfriend.com/pop-filters/sterling-audio-stpf2-professional-mesh-pop-filter?pdpSearchTerm=pop%20filters

this is one of the most common amateur problems, and it is easily minimized with a cheap pop filter. You can make your own with any screen like fabric and a frame to hold it. Or you can record your voice from the side, so the plosives are not directed at the mic.


3) room reflections
Every room has an echo. You may not hear it but the mic does. This is probably the MOST COMMON problem with amateur recorded vocals. It makes vocals sound like they were recorded in a box or barrel. The easy fix is to put something that will absorb any sound that gets past the mic. A pillow, blanket or bit of foam works well. Anything that will keep the sound from continuing past the mic and echoing off the walls. Or you can buy a device made of acoustic foam and set it behind your mic:
http://www.musiciansfriend.com/sound-shields-reflectors/se-electronics-reflexion-filter-x


4) environmental noise
barking dogs, trucks driving by, subway, trains , TV or radio playing , people talking in another room etc
Although you can't prevent those things, you can listen for it and retake any lines that may be ruined by it

Maybe I will just send my voice recordings to you first, Pat, so you can see if they are okay. I wear hearing aids so am not always sure how my recordings are after I submit them. I seem to always be using the amplify feature and have my speakers turned up. I am the victim of too many ear infections and too much time in water having fun. I tired ear surgery but it did not make things better, it added nerve damage.
I learned my lesson about having surgeries.


I have constant ringing in my ears so do not know if that is in the recordings or not. Crazy, huh?

Rocque, if you're only an hour from me and if you're having issues with your recordings I may be able to help. I should have my mic and preamp by this Thursday. The mic is from eBay so after I've tested it and if everything is working the whole setup will be very portable. My kids are out of town this week and weekend so I have a little more time than normal as well. I've engineered a lot of recordings in the past for other people so I feel comfortable with that process. I also have some moving blankets and foam that work well for dampening room echoes. My mom had scarlet fever when she was a kid and it damaged her hearing so I know what kind of an obstacle that can be. Anyway, let me know if that's something that would be of help to you. If so, you can message me and we can work out the details.

Clayster2012, I'm assuming we'll be recording at 48khz? I just want to check.

That's correct, remember that there will be background noises that will be set a low setting to create a light ambience for the saloon, also I will be adding more line for Milo bill, since you are good at those funny pickup lines, could you come up with a few and send them to me, and I'll try and work them in the script, just remember to keep it friendly for younger viewers.

Thanks for all of the offers for help. You are all amazing. It sounds like you have a great set up for recording, Marc. I will see if keeping it simple works, but it is great to know there are alternatives should they be necessary. One of my friends where I live has a recording studio of sorts in her house, too, since she and her husband are both song writers/musicians. I could probably ask her for help if needed, but she keeps crazy working mom and musician hours, and finding time might be difficult due to her schedule.

Thanks again everyone for the alternatives.

No prob,Clayster.. I've been busy anyway.

But you seem to have a thorough understanding of your characters from prior years of using them in stories. I'm guessing you already have ideas about what they should sound like (voice-wise) so can you give me any guidance about what you're looking for in Red Dead's voice?

There are all kinds of ways that evil can be communicated in a voice.

Do you see him as a boisterous personality like Yosemite Sam?
Or a man of few words who'd rather shoot you than talk to you? ( speaks with his actions)

Is he just mean and dumb, with a limited vocabulary of gruffly spoken words?
Or smart and condescending, able to insult with words his opponents don't even understand?

Is his voice deep, booming and threatening?
Or throaty and raspy like the hiss of a rattle snake that smokes 4 packs of cigarettes a day?
or unexpectedly high pitched for a villain? Maybe his wussy voice is what turned him against society and made him want to kill everybody who made fun of him in school

Maybe it would be easier if you compare your vision of Red Dead to a TV or Movie character...

Any defining info would be appreciated. Or, I can just make something up.. but I'm guessing you already know what you want.
