About

Kim Ramón is capable of a variety ages, with a wide vocal range available to her, having studied music voice performance. Her post secondary education allowed her to passionately practice the study and performance of text, more often than not in foreign languages (including Spanish, German, French and Italian, all of which she is confident in her pronunciation). She has performed on stage in musicals, operas as well as plays.

Voice Over Testimonials

From audition to delivery, every step of the process with Kim was a textbook example of how voice actors should conduct business. Obviously, the most important element is the voice itself, and Kim's ability to use the tone and enthusiasm we needed was wonderful. Additionally, something that not a lot of producers consider, is the quality of the audio recording. So much time is focused on the voice itself, but not the method in which it's captured. With Kim, she's clearly using broadcast grade equipment and lots of common issues (noise floor, popping p's, dynamic range) were of A+ quality. My audio mixer told me he only had to change the volume to match our music and used NO FILTERS on her audio file. I've never encountered that before. Our turnaround was quick and on our busiest day of client notes, Kim was working in real time sending us changes and hitting notes as soon as they came in. We are absolutely hiring Kim in the future and if you're considering her for a job, it's really a no brainer.

LOREN SEMMENS

A talented professional that takes direction very well, offers a quick turnaround and is a great communicator, Kim was a pleasure to work with. And she's Canadian.

VisInc Inc

It was really a pleasure working with Kim. We were working on one of the challenging animation projects which had a very short deadline. Kim was really quick to understand our exact requirements and able to deliver the voiceovers in a very short period of time even though the scripts were very lengthy. We would love to work with her again and strongly recommend her.

Skill Overview

Audio Editing

File delivery in a basic polish of noise reduction, de-breathing and normalizing has become a standard in my practice, aside from when clients specifically request raw files. An actor by trade makes for a very strong sense of pacing, and paired with quality room tone ensures natural spacing and rests, for consistency that could otherwise stand out, even to an untrained ear. All this in a timely fashion.

Audio Editing Experience

Audiobook Producer

R.J. Amador • Freelance

Dec 2020 - Feb 2021

In tandem with voicing the 22 chapter script, the 10+ characters of The First Generation needed to be edited all together to create a natural pace for the final product. Some SFX were applied to specific characters, including a middle-aged man, as well as several types of aliens. Extraneous sounds were edited out; clean room tone was applied and Quality Control was met to ensure the original script was honored and clearly audible. Any pick-ups were the reinserted.

Narrator/Producer of children's Audiobook

(Independent) • Freelance

Oct 2020 - Jan 2021

Along with voicing the narrator as well as the 10+ characters, choice SFX were required for the alien sounds et al, delicately navigating the thin line between today's audiobooks and audio dramas. Massive bunker doors opening; aliens running down an echoey hall and terrifying, atmospheric sound clusters voiced from other worldly beasts were just a few of the unique sounds created for this project.
