Custom Preset Strength Levels

strength levels Aug 16, 2021

The custom processing preset for voice-over is a series of plugins that manipulate the audio to produce the best sound possible. You may be wondering if the preset will work with different style reads. For example, will it handle a soft, detailed audiobook passage and a loud, in-your-face style auto commercial? The answer is yes! Your custom processing preset includes multiple strength-level versions, which provide you with the perfect sound for any style, delivery, and client request. You can use These strength levels include the following. 

  • "Full Processing": This strength level produces a full polished sound with a comprehensive frequency response and consistent energy and power.
  • "Mild Processing": This strength level produces a polished sound while allowing for more dynamics.
  • "Tone Only Processing": This strength level offers an unprocessed sound while retaining all tone corrections and adjustments.

Client Requests

Another common question is, "what if my client requests an "unprocessed" version of my voice recording?" Again, the "Tone Only" strength level is what you should use in that situation.  A typical custom preset use case for voice-over artists is to send an audition for a job using the "Full Processing" or "Mild Processing" versions. These two strength levels are also commonly used for posting demos. Then, once a job is acquired, a "Tone Only" version is sent as the final recording.

What Is A Custom Preset And Why Do I Need One?

A custom processing preset for your voice-over is a series of plugins explicitly tuned for your voice, in your room, and on your microphone. If you want to compete in today's voice-over world, you must ensure that your demos and auditions are extraordinary. Voice-over artists at every experience level from all over the world are fighting to win work. However, if you don't have a professional sound, you will lose out to someone who does.

Custom voice-over processing presets can take your audio presentation quality to the level necessary to compete with the pros. Instead of taking it upon yourself to tweak the parameters like EQ compression, DeEssing, and saturation to name a few, you can hire a professional voice-over audio engineer to create it for you. Once you have the custom preset on your system, you have "The Sound" every time you press the record button. The investment pays for itself with the money and time saved. Here are the top reasons why they are so popular:

  1. A custom processing preset lets you focus on your strengths, leaving more time for pitching your voice-over and less time stumbling with engineering.
  2. A custom processing preset gives you the confidence necessary to help you perform your best.
  3. A custom processing preset allows you to outshine the competition, win more auditions, and get more work.
