Punch and roll…

As a voice talent who is far from perfect, I am always on the lookout for more efficient ways of recording and editing my takes. I recently stumbled on an article that does exactly that! Punch and roll is a feature that is built into pro tools a very complex recording software that is way more complex than most of us voice-over talents need to do the recording and production that we need to do in our normal daily routines.

Being a user of Adobe Audition 3.0, I have never been able to figure out on my own how to create a script to allow me to use punch and roll in Adobe Audition. That was until I saw this article written by Adam Verner! A marvelously written article on how to very easily incorporate the proper settings to add the punch and roll feature to Adobe audition! In literally less than five minutes I had the feature installed set-up and ready to use! Click on the link below to the article and incorporate this useful tool to your arsenal of great production tools.


What features have you found to speed up your audio editing in Adobe Audition?

My Studio Gatekeepers!

Well,  I have heard many of my fellow voice-over colleagues refer to their pets as watchful gatekeepers of their home studio. I thought I had better take a few moments to introduce the two gatekeepers of my studio, or when I am on the road traveling – our horse trailer!

Dixie & LuLu

Well, here  are our two Jack Russel Terriers (JRT’s) Dixie and LuLu! They are pretty quiet most of the time allowing me to record a lot during the day, except for the occasional squirel outside in view of the picture window, or the mailman! OK, a retake or two because of them barking isn’t the end of the world right?

They are some of the most traveled JRT’s having traveled to many states while working different professional rodeo events around the country.  They are truly special and definitely a very important part of our family!

Louie as we call her is kind of the quiet type around strangers, and as for Dixie?  She has been known to chase rodeo clowns and team ropers off if they get to close to our trailer!

Well, I needed a short break in the studio today and decided I had better include my special gatekeeper’s in my blog today.  I hope you enjoyed getting a peek at them.

Do you have a studio gatekeeper?
