Jolly Green Giant Ho Ho HO needed
Got a commercial coming up in which I want a voice as deep as the Jolly Green Giant while as rich as James Earl Jones', "This is CNN."

Can you guess the commercial is for a barbecue restaurant?

A subtle echo, a little bit of frequency shifting. What else? Sound Forge 7 is the tool I use for sound .

Mike, if you need a voice guy, our own Steve Savanyu from AT has an excellent, rich voice....We have 5 people in our stable, but I think Steve could do a great job on this.

Matte Gettemeier's friend would do the trick. He used a Rode tube mic and that helped a bit (a whole lot). I'll email you the clip.

One a somewhat similar topic, I'm curious as to what the talent should be doing. Does making the rib cage bigger help (EDIT: more chest cavity volume should make the resonance a lower pitch. right?)

2- Is there any way to get the tube mic effect with plug-ins? I've read that tubes add harmonics when they distort. Do any plug-ins do that exact effect?

The second thing Matt Gettemeier's friend did was to get up close to the mic. Could you achieve the same thing with multiband dynamics/compression?

I'm sending emails to my small pool of African American actors (none of whom have the deep resonance I want). If they don't come up with someone, I will be in quick contact with you, Douglas.

Now if I could only keep the voice I have when I first wake up, it might come close. Nah.

Mr. Jones, Mr. Jones, what would you charge me for a 5 second voice over? Wouldn't that be a killer? Hmm. Actually, it might not be that bad. I got "Bad Boys" from Inner Circle for $100 to use in a police video.

Too bad my customer is a small business. He probably isn't going to go a few grand for a voice for his commercial.
