Hear the voice, select the voice
Are you in the hunt for a new voice? If you are then you should know the best way to succeed is to trust your ears! When you are out chasing down the right voice to represent your organization you could spend hours barking up the wrong tree.
However today the fastest and probably the most foolproof way, is to go online to listen to Voice Over Samples.
This may be stating the obvious, but prior to the internet, there was no one central resource available where you could audition voice talent.
The endless search
In the “bad old days” advertisers and producers had to rely on several sources to unearth a new voice. It could involve contacting the various agents representing voice over talent to ask for suggestions.
Individual voice actors would send out “demo reels” in the hope of getting work. If the timing was right you might fluke hearing one of these compilations.
Or you might have to rely on word of mouth. Perhaps you mightpick up a name while sharing a few beverages on Friday at the local watering hole frequented by compatriots in the advertising fraternity. If you were really lucky you might get a contact number too!
Be ever thankful for the internet
Despite all the distractions associated with the much maligned World Wide Web, the internet has helped liberate us from the drudgery of finding Voice Over Samples.
On the Media Group home page if you are looking for a voice artist all you have to do is click on the microphone icon or the title VOICE OVERS. You’ll be instantly whipped away to a page where you can browse and listen to a huge number of actual voice samples recorded by professional male and female artists.
On top of the samples get a quote and a demo
