I’ve submitted my test project recording but unfortunately it was rejected again. After doing a bit of research it seems that many Bunny Pros who are recording in professional studios have the impression your standards are a bit too strict: https://help.bunnystudio.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360004188019-Quality-Control-Nonsense
However, I’d like a detailed feedback on how I can improve my sound quality to meet your standards. I’m determined to be accepted as voice talent. The feedback I received, even after revision, was:
There is audible room echo (reverberation) impacting your recording. Please ensure you record in an acoustically treated space. If you already have acoustic treatment, it may not be adequate.
Here’s a picture of the setup. I’ve got a box coated with sound absorbing foam and the mic placed within. I’m not talking directly into the mic but somewhat off axis:
In the first recording I’ve made, I’ve had my gain rather high and me talking from outside, maybe 20-30 cm from the mic. In hindsight, yes that did include a tiny bit of echo it seems. On the second recording. I’ve had my head halfway in the box and the gain turned down. I felt it had much less echo and sounded better. Here's the link to the WAV: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AiyCmVFnACheu7cMVcbdRgB7vD8YPA
The equipment I’m using is a Rode NT1-A with a pop-filter, a shock mount and a Scarlett 2i2. The recordings made with Audacity software.
Can you please listen to the audio again, consider my setup and give me tips on what changes I need to make to my setup so the recording will be accepted?
Thank you again for your efforts and your assistance. I greatly appreciate it.
