The voice actor’s job

Professional voice talents record documentaries for TV, multimedia, corporate videos, webclips, audio books and radio plays. While more complex productions are still most likely to be recorded in external studios, many voice artists now produce their recordings themselves in their own booths.

Voice recordings in the booth

The recording booth not only shuts out external noise, it is also a semi-anechoic room with no reverberations or flutter echoes. 

How a voice recording is done

The first steps in a professional voice artist’s work are to mark up the script to indicate which syllables to stress, and to discuss the delivery style with the client.  Once the script has been recorded, the recording is edited.  Mistakes are cut out and breathing sounds attenuated or removed if necessary.  The voice talent also applies equalizer or compressor during postproduction to optimize the sound. The equalizer is used to adjust the relative volume of selected frequency ranges. The compressor balances the large dynamic range of the voice recording by raising quieter parts and lowering louder ones.

Delivery of the voice recording

The finished audio file is usually delivered via the Internet. Thanks to increasing bandwidths, delivery even in uncompressed formats such as wav or aiff is no longer a problem. Also, professional voice actors often receive orders from other countries. Delivery via the Internet is then the most convenient solution.

The international German voice talent

Voice talents deliver their recordings worldwide. The dialogue with clients is usually in English; the voice recording is done in the voice talent’s native language. In English, there are various translations of the term “deutscher Sprecher”. “German voice talent” is frequently used. Another term is “German voice actor”. However, the latter definition tends to emphasize acting capability, such as lip-sync or cartoon dubbing. “German voice talent” is the more commonly used term. Sometimes, “German voice artist”, “German voiceover talent” or simply “German voiceover” are used.
