For years now people have been telling me to go into radio and voice acting. Friends, family, complete strangers, people at bars, and people on buses. What got me interested again is 3 complete strangers brought it up in the last week.

Not only that but some of them are literally begging me. Because if I don't do it I'm "wasting my talent". I don't know... just because I have a deep voice, I don't think that means I have the talent to voice act or have the ability to articulate myself professionally.

I have always mumbled my entire life and suffered from shyness. I think I even struggle to speak since I hardly opened my mouth my entire life and am naturally very quiet. My sister in law told me that I need to take courses to help me not speak in a monotone. I got two job offers in the past to voice act. One guy claimed to be with the video game industry, another with the animation industry. But I didn't trust them.

I was told I should sign up for voice123. But it costs 400 dollars a year, and it'd mean probably spending atleast 1000 dollars on a microphone. Should I take the risk? Can someone honestly tell me if this worth going into? I don't want to waste the money I saved up for nothing.

Well, after listening to your vocaroo, I hav3 to agree with them unless you're totally lying and pitch shifted your voice.

You definitely seem to have the correct deepness in your voice, and it really doesn't seem like you're overly monotone. The fact that you've been offered stuff (but didn't take it?!?!?!) is testament to this. People work their whole lives to get into voice acting, don't squander the opportunity. Once you get into it you might find that you love it.

Frankly I'm pretty jealous. I podcast and want nothing more than to do radio or voice act ( or both).

Give it a shot anon.

Also, you can get a decent Mic set up for like 300 dollars. That's a mount and everything.

>>16586285
do you have any interest in this? for example, if someone has a huge dick they CAN go into porn. alternatively, if you don't have any interests yet - why not while you find them if you'd earn more? it wouldn't be a waste of time, the industry is probably always looking for a voice like yours

Thanks for the advice. I'll try and give it a shot.

Do you know the names of any good brands? I don't know the first thing about microphones

You need to work on your technique, perhaps read up on how to voice act. Your tone is good, but it just felt like listening to someone with a deep voice, rather than listening to a proper voice-over guy. I can't quite put my finger on why, but I'm not an expert on these things. I'm sure there are plenty of resources that'll help you polish your skill.

As far as the mic goes, don't jump straight in with a $1,000 one. That's a lot of money, and unless you're actually getting paid jobs it's pretty much useless. I'm converting from local currency here so it might be different where you live, but you should be able to get a much, much better model than the one you have now for about $200 - $250. Sure, it won't be a top of the range commercial use one, but it'll be plenty good enough to send people recordings so they can hear what you do. Don't buy the $1,000 one until you start getting paid jobs, that way you know the money isn't going to waste.

I don't think reading up on it will help.

I think I'd have to go to a speech therapist or someone like that to learn how people talk like voice over guys.

What their techniques are.

I'll give you my two cents:

- Start practicing

- Get this: http://www.thomann.de/it/rode_nt1a_complete_vocal_recording.htm

- and this:

http://www.thomann.de/it/focusrite_scarlett_2i2.htm

- Do a course

- Find a job, keep in mind that a voice like yours is always needed in the radio / voice acting /game industry. Do not waste your gift.

- Be happy
