My first attempt to join VB was rejected for "hiss in the recording". So I started the detective work to find what was causing the hiss.
I was using my Gateway Laptop, my private homemade booth, a Samson USB Cartioid Condenser Mic.
I ran it past the engineer and they said the hiss was internal and probably because my mic was plugging directly into my laptop.
I upgraded all my equipment to a FocusRite Scarlett 2i2 interface, a Audio Technica 2030 Mic with a shockmount and continued on with Audacity because I know how to use it.
I then booked a session with the engineer at Guitar Studio to go over my new files and the rejected file before I submitted it. After 2 hours, we discovered the hiss was actually coming from MY OWN laptop. I had to re-record.
I was running out of time since I only had 5.5 hrs to get the new audition in. After all that LONG wait to get the next chance, paid time with an engineer, total upgrade on my equipment and changing to my husbands Macbook air to record, they rejected that file too with only the comment, "Editing issues". I have NO idea what that meant and they give no feedback. I wonder if they realize what some people go to be a part of what they are doing at Voice Bunny.
I know I'm good at editing, I'm on my second audiobook with Audible and that is intense with editing.
I feel frustrated and angry.
Is there a way to find out what "editing issues" Array is talking about? Is it true that I only have one more chance to audition for Voice Bunny?
