Cool, thx for the feedback Rob and Zach. Have since updated the male vox to be more similar to the female vox in vibe. This song is supposed to be used in a documentary so the format may be more geared towards background music bed role but yes, if given the reigns I would love to add some additional textures and sounds to at least some of the songs. This is the first one in the batch so doing the old "give them exactly what they ask for on the first one to build trust" thing. From there, hope to add some more flavor on the remaining songs. 

Cheers,
David

Recording  - 
 
Hi all, got a question for ya. Have been recording a lot of VO lately  and am getting a lot of lip/mouth smacks throughout the takes.

Any suggestions on minimizing this at the front end? Giving the voice talent more water? Possibly a different mic? I usually just draw the smacks out of the waveform in PT if it can't be cut out completely but thinking there might be a way to reduce this at the time of tracking.

Thanks in advance,
David

Unless your "talent" is working for free stop the problem at the source. The producer should make the voice talent aware of the problem, fix it or find another gig because there probably isn't any "talent" there. Harsh, yes but garbage in garbage out so just don't put up with it.

Am building an audio work station from scratch. This will be a windows machine based on the endpcnoise 2U MusicMaker model. Priced out most of the same parts on Amazon and with free Prime shipping I'm saving about a thousand bucks by building it myself. Am just doing a little at a time as I can and as payday rolls around. In this pix I'm adding in the power supply and DVDr. The mobo was the first thing I installed.
Thought I would share the adventure.

Yeah I've built one or two workstations in the past, the optimizations are def key to making a windows machine worth doing audio on. +David Delbridge , this is the mobo (ASUS H87M-PLUS/CSM DDR3 1600 LGA 1150), same as in the endpcnoise model:

One of the better laid out mobo's I've seen and an actually usable manual.

Nice vid Dana, you recording with Bob up in Whitehorse again? The last CD of yours sounded awesome, I find that it's in regular rotation most of the time. Can't wait to hear the new one! Much love from Hawaii
