I don’t have the experience to be able to give a good estimate here. Happy to try to accommodate reasonable requests.
My roommate is a musician, so I have access to several, primarily an AKG condenser.
Computer & Software
MacBook Pro (and thus pre-loaded software such as Garage Band), access to professional software like Logic through others
Microphone pop filter, various
I have the knowledge and training to be a versatile and nuanced performer.
-My voice and speech are central to my passions and career goals.
-I’ve received coaching/advice in oratory skills by various people including theatre professionals, spoken word artists and MCs from Min/St. Paul, Duluth/Superior, and Chicago, and musicians/sound techs. -
-I minored in Linguistics, and studied German (5 years), Mandarin Chinese (2 years), and Ojibwe (2 years) language from native speakers of those languages.
-I apparently have a verbal IQ (if it has any standing or relevance) of around 147 (about a tenth of a percent of people tested have higher scores in this category), but have always been made aware of my status as a “walking dictionary”
-I come from a working class background in a mining community, though. My education and experiences together have given me a unique understanding of language, particularly English.
-My accent German is apparently difficult to place, with the first guess typically being an incredulous Ireland or Australia. So I have an indistinct “English speaker” accent but not one that is immediately placeable.
-I respect different dialects and languages, and I respect the people who speak them. I adhere to the stance put forth by Linguistics as a field that no dialect/language is any more correct, expressive, or valid than another.
-I can also do some other, somewhat peculiar, things with my voice- a pretty convincing goat bleat, a crow caw, overtones, whistle register, etc...
