Hello, Peter. For reason, I didn't get the PM. :hmm:
Constructive criticism is always welcome. Thanks, SaraHale. :D

That was amazing. You have an incredible voice Peter. It's a joy to hear no matter what you are saying. The recording is very clear and technically perfect but that was really not a surprise.

The content made perfect sense and was just the guidelines I was looking for. When I wrote earlier to request for your narration tips I was going to suggest if you could give some kind of variations in the parameters like distance and diction so that I have something to compare but apparently you read my mind and did just that.

"As you like it" is a lovely choice for variations in intonation and diction since most people are already familiar with the text part of it.

I thoroughly enjoyed your recording and if any amount of practice can get me even half way where you are I will be a happy camper. I am planning to keep it in my LV reference folder where all my technical specs and design elements are kept.

Thank you Peter for the time and the effort. I honestly appreciate it.

with warm regards,

Amit

Many thanks - I just dashed it off - I had to cut out a lot of um's and er's - it's harder for me to speak off the cuff rather than reading from a book or script.

If its extempore then all the more amazing. You have a lot of talent. I am happy to get pointers off of you. Thanks again.

This thread is very helpful, thank you! I have trouble with distracting mouth noises and some of the advice in here has helped reduce that quite a bit. The hardest thing is remembering to drink lots of water hours in advance of recording.
