How Voice Overs Help In Broadcast

Voice overs are among the most difficult elements of the recording process for engineers to master.  A major part of the problem is that each voice is different and the narrator often brings a different skill set to the recording session.  There are no hard rules about how to get good results, but these tips can help with most voiceover recordings.

  As a starting point, make sure that both the voice artist and the recording engineer are familiar with the material being recorded.  The written word – although it can be read well on paper – may have unexpected tongue twins that elevate the voice.  To avoid this, it is necessary to read-through before recording.

Importance of Voice over in broadcast:

  •       The announcer’s voice is like the pianist’s hands.  The way a score is reinforced by experience and experience
  •       The artist’s enthusiasm turns the written word into meaningful and appealing information for the ear.
  •       The eloquence and style of the advertiser.  (Utterback, 2000)
  •       What would happen without a broadcaster’s familiar, articulated, innate, and friendly voice?  narrative

Every human voice is different and experimentation is always needed.  This is where it helps to work with voice artists who are professionals.  Many experienced artists know the type of microphone and make the best sound with their voice.  Knowing this beforehand can save a huge amount of time.  Some voice professionals also keep their favorite mic and bring it to the session.

  Less experienced narratives depend on Mike and the engineer to determine the preamps that works best for them.  This is a defining moment in any voiceover session for the engineer.  It is also that such a large selection of microphones are available in well-equipped studios.

  Voice talent who also do radio or television broadcasts uses the proximity effect – working very close to the mic – to boost the bass in their sound.  This is when working with a cardioid pickup pattern.  This apparent sound has long been called the “voice of God” effect.
