Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Can I discuss a job first?
Yes, of course! You need to be completely sure that the voiceover you are choosing is right for your project, so please don’t hesitate to contact me and ask as many questions as you need to.
Can I hear samples of your previous work?
Yes. A number of demos and samples are included on this page (see above).
Can I use a recording in a broadcast environment?
Broadcast use is limited to community, student, charity, and RSL stations only.
Additional restrictions may apply if you choose to include backing music from my library. This is dependent upon my supplier’s licence so, please ask.
I’d like backing music added. Can you do this?
Yes and no. I cannot work with any copyrighted music due to the complex licensing issues surrounding it. I can however add royalty-free, copyright-free music of which there are some great pieces about. I have a small library of tracks available which can be used for a small charge.
If you have your own royalty-free music and its licence permits you to send it to me for inclusion on your recording, then just let me know and I’ll add it as-is for an editing fee.
Is there anything you won’t read?
Generally speaking, I’ll read most scripts but there are a few exceptions. Examples of what I will decline (non-exhaustive) include:
- Motoring related promotional, advertisement, or endorsement materials,
- Tobacco related promotional, advertisement, or endorsement materials,
- Pornography and adult material,
- Sham medical practices,
- Promotions for illegal products or activities (according to UK law),
- Extreme or inciteful material
If you have a script that you are unsure as to whether I will accept, please feel free to submit it to me for approval before entering into an agreement.
What audio equipment do you use?
My current equipment comprises of a Rode NT2-A Large Diaphragm Condenser microphone with Rode Pop Filter, running into a DBX 286s Pre-amp and processor for compression, de-esser and gate functions.
Audio is recorded (in an acoustically treated studio) to PC using a Focusrite Scarlett 8i6 Audio Interface, and post-processing completed using Adobe Audition with Waves Audio plugins.
Monitoring is via a PreSonus HP4 headphone amplifier to Beyerdynamic DT-150 headphones.
What is your policy on retakes and edits?
Through the Fivesquid service, I offer to re-record a script once following the provision of an evaluation file. I also offer up-to two minor edits per 80 word block. Edits and re-records can be made at any time up until the point the job is completed as indicated by the delivery of the high-quality file. After this, further edits will be chargeable.
Please note that you will only receive one high-quality file at the end of the completed job.
Why must I agree to you using audio for your own purposes?
Anyone looking to hire a voice over wants to know whether that person is right for the job. To do enable this, I publish recordings on this site and elsewhere. Often I’ll publish entire recordings (particularly where they’re short), but other times I might use extracts either on their own or as part of a compilation.
The agreement for me to use recordings in this way forms part of my standard licence but if this conflicts with your requirements, then please don’t assume I cannot help you. just ask for a quotation with a full usage rights waiver, which can be included for an additional charge.
Remember though, that this policy works for your benefit too, giving you the opportunity to hear examples of my previous work!
Will you audition?
Absolutely. Just send me your script and I’ll make a recording in the style you indicate.
Audition recordings are provided free of charge. As a result, only a short extract can be recorded and the resulting file may be a lower quality MP3 rather than the highest quality audio files supplied at the end of a completed job.
