You can have your voice in my ambiences, it’s easy!
I’m looking for very specific sounds that are not available on internet. Together, we can push even further the limits of what can be done for fantasy ambiences. Without your help, I won’t be able to do it.
Everything is explained on this page, and I even provide audio examples.
Before you start recording yourself playing the role, just recording yourself saying “Michael Ghelfi” out loud. So I can be sure that it’s your voice, and not the sound from some copyrighted content (game, movie, etc.)
Even simpler => take any text in a foreign language and put it here, then read it in a non-english pronounciation.
Feel free to add pauses and questions. Like when you are doing a real conversation (if the context allows it).
To have good quality sounds, be careful about the background noises.
Turn off all sources of noises (fans, music, TV on the first floor, mobile phone etc.). Close your windows and record it where the reverberation is low. If really, you can put pillows, sheets or carpets on noise generating devices to dampen the sound. Anything that absorbs sounds makes a big difference, textile is particularly efficient.
Place yourself at about 20 centimeters from the recording device. Avoid yelling if you don’t have a great mic.
Careful about how you speak : try to have a clear open voice and avoid ‘bad habits’ like tongue noises, slurps, etc.
You can definitely record several voices at the same time, such as a fake conversation. Ask people around you! (Family, companion, etc.) it may be a fun activity!
Apple and Windows both have free recording apps on their store. Otherwise you can download more professional apps like OBS, Adobe Audition, Reaper, etc. There’s also this very simple solution.
I have a preference for .wav files.
It would be good if you could respect the naming convention => from the general to the specific.
The email address to send your home-recorded sounds is: email@example.com
I recommend to send files through www.WeTransfer.com as they can be heavy.
Themes for which I need sounds (Both male and female sounds are welcome for all sounds) :
We are reworking the website at the moment. If it looks ugly and is broken, don't worry :) Dismiss
