In less than an hours time, I can show you how to produce a GREAT sounding Voice Over using simple step-by-step instructions, and using tools and software that are very inexpensive! 

Have you ever wondered what voice over processing tips can make your voice sound better on a recording? Have you ever tried to listen to a video or podcast, only to find the author has recorded his voice over too low, or worse, the audio is loud and distorted, and sounds like they're talking through a kazoo?

My personal pet peeve is hearing plosives, pops, and breaths distorting the audio every time says a word starting with a P or B! At the end of the day, there's a simple reason why we have very little patience for bad audio quality in a voice over...

People will forgive a bad image, but they will not forgive bad sound.

I have been recording videos, screencasts, screen recordings, and voice overs for well over 10 years, recording for my own company, TonyTeach, as well as others such as Creative Cow, Infinite Skills, and even Lynda[dot]com. During this time, through many trials and errors, playing with different audio softwares, microphones, and hardwares – I was able to develop simple voice over processing tips to produce quality audio, every single time I recorded. More importantly, I was able to do all of this without breaking the bank, and I've summed it up into this short, easy to follow, 30+ minute course

My name is Tony Ross, owner and creator of TonyTeach.com and BigBlockBooks.com. I am an animator and software trainer, and I also like to dabble in music, and creative writing.  

My specialty in software training, is taking complex applications, and breaking them down into simple steps that even a beginner, or novice can follow. With over a decade of experience, my tutorials have been featured on Creative Cow, Adobe.com, Toon Boom, GoMediazine, Infinite Skills, O’Reilly, and I am also a Lynda.com author.

In teaching, and in life, I try and follow this mantra…

Keep it simple, make it perfect; If you don't have the time to make it perfect, rethink the idea. - Tony Ross
