Thanks so much for helping troubleshoot. My first audio sent, had compression noted for rejection.
The only edits I did were normalizing to -3dB and fade ins to clean up the audio. Is it the pre amp
that makes it sound more compressed?
The second submission, is what I was hoping to attach here, but I'm not seeing how to do that. (Sorry!
I use a Rode condenser mic with a Focusrite pre amp, no plug ins or sophisticated clean up
tools. I use Cooledit Pro, the grandmama of Adobe, so it doesn't have all of the bells
and whistles, but it gets the job done for VO. My headphones are AKG, but middle road, not high end. In broadcasting work I have generally used RE20 mic's-- which result in a much warmer vocal sound.
Is it just not possible to get that with the Rode mic? I think my performance is always in need of improvement, but my understanding from the rejection is that pops were heard at edit points and it made the audio not sound fluid. I hear it now. How can I rectify?
On a side note, for the nice person who responded to my reply about rabbits and carrots,
as a house rabbit lover (my bun Elvis is turning 8 in August!) Bugs Bunny created the idea
that eating carrots is good for real rabbits, but the truth is hay or leafy greens are proper diet options
for good health. Like many humans, rabbits tend to love things that are bad for them, and carrots
for house buns are serious carb overload and can cause health problems. Love your buns, give 'em cilantro. :-)
