Voice Over Testimonials

For Narration of Divine Collision" by Jim Gash.
Nominated for Best Inspirational/Faith-Based Non-Fiction by the Audio Publishers Association.

"Brandon Batchelar's narration is so powerful that it may make listeners want to join the author in his quest for justice in a faraway land...Batchelar's compelling delivery allows listeners to see the Ugandan landscape and experience the joys and sorrows of its people. Batchelar is especially endearing as he portrays Gash's tendency to weep when emotionally moved." © AudioFile 2016 Published: FEBRUARY 2016

Audiofile Magazine

For narration of There's A Crack In Your Armor" by Perry Stone. "Brandon Batchelar's engaging voice and easy-to-understand phrasing capture Stone's biblical descriptions and vivid examples of spiritual warfare....Batchelar uses crisp enunciation to pronounce Greek and Hebrew terms and explains their meaning clearly." © AudioFile 2014 Published: NOVEMBER 2014]

Audiofile Magazine

For narration of Four Cups" by Chris Hodges. "Narrator Brandon Batchelar's powerful delivery of Jewish history, teachings, and traditions provides authenticity to the author's message...Batchelar's pace slows for added emphasis when he discusses how to apply the Four Cups of promises to daily life and the challenges that may arise." © AudioFile 2014 Published: NOVEMBER 2014]

Skill Overview

Audio Editing

Audio production entails using the correct equipment (microphones, cables, preamps, equalization, compressors) with the correct microphone placement to accurately capture a sound, instrument, or vocal performance. I have nearly 20 years of experience working with musicians and voice-actors, as well as experience recording myself as a narrator/voice-actor. Over the years I've built a professional studio with top-of-the-line equipment and software.

Skill Overview

Audio Mixing

Audio mixing involves processing and combining audio files together in such a way that they sound cohesive with each other. This is a necessary step for any multi-track recording in order to get it ready for the final step of mastering. I have been mixing music acts ranging from jazz to hip-hop to punk rock for nearly 20 years.
