So the radio in this picture is a very dear part of my teenage, growing up years in the big town of Wallace, NC. When I was around 12 or 13, I had a dream of becoming a radio disc jockey or a "DJ" as most would call it. I use to record myself using my portable cassette tape recorder and pretend to be a DJ and announce various hit songs from the early 70s. When I turned 15 years old I actually got my dream job working at WLSE in Wallace. They trained me and my friend Bryon Lindner to work the 7-10:30 pm shift during the week and then work a good bit on the weekends. I was in heaven! I loved it. Sure beat the heck out of working in a Tobacco field!
The radio pictured was my parent's radio that sat in the kitchen and they would listen to me when I was on air. And when I was off air I would tune in to listen to the latest greatest hits of the 70's. Amazing memories!
I produced an Old Radio effect this afternoon using my beloved radio. There's lots of static when you turn it on and off but it still works great! These sounds will be available on Motion Array within the next week or two.
Take a listen below.
I spent a bit of the afternoon producing several new cartoon comical crash effects. These are always fun to make. My wife is use to seeing me gather up kitchen utensils, pots and pans and giant spoons for occasions such as these! And then add in some cymbal crashes and bass drum kicks, maybe a slide whistle and whamo! A new fun sound is born.
These sounds will be available on AudioJungle and Motion Array within the next several days.
Take a listen below to a sample.
The photo to the left is of my Neumann U47Fet microphone that I use for all my voice overs. I'm a HUGE fan of Neumann microphones which are some of the finest mics in the world. I own several and they are my go to microphones. In addition to recording a host of different sounds I love to do cartoon voice overs with different voices. I get a real kick out of hearing these voices in several of the top children's videos on Youtube including "Like Nastya", "Diane & Roma" and "Vlad & Nicki" just to name a few. These channels have had literally billons of views. I hear my work in just about every episode from the last couple of years on each of these channels. They use a lot of my musical interludes and accents as well.
Take a listen below to a short sample of couple of my voices that were recently added to my library on AudioJungle.
