Radio veterans need to understand the technological paradigm shift that has occurred in simple digital voice recording. The old set-up of Mic, Mixer board, interface to computer is essentially obsolete.

Rodney Saulsberry, celebrity voice-over artist and author of You Can Bank on Your Voice and Step Up to the Mic, recently hosted Voices.com founders, David and Stephanie Ciccarelli, on his blog with an excerpt from their newest publication.

The Ciccarelli’s founded Voices.com, the largest online hub for voice actors, in 2004. Over the past nine years Stephanie, David, and their team have grown Voices.com from the ground up to become the leader in the industry.  Stephanie and David co-authored the “Voice Acting for Dummies” book, published by John Wiley and Sons, Inc. earlier this year.

Having taught hundreds of students the method of “Scoring the Copy,” Rodney instantly related to the concepts presented in their ‘Dummies book on Marking up a Script. Rodney says, “I believe that voice over is analogous to music and that reading a script is like singing a song. If you mark up a piece of copy with a certain interpretation in mind, another actor could read your score and deliver your exact interpretation.”
