I just produced a new video on how to make cinnamon bread. My object is to get more professional with them. I find that the best way to improve is to do. “Practice makes perfect” as they say.
All along with my videos I have not been happy with the sound quality. The audio of my narration always sounds scratchy and tinny. I have purchased two or three fairly good microphones in an effort to correct this problem.
On the Cinnamon bread video I asked my wife about the sound quality and she said it sounded okay. I asked, “What about the narration?” She said, “Oh, you always sound like that.”
Funny how we listen to ourselves talk day after day and do not really know what we sound like. Of course, I have heard myself on answering machines, and video tapes, but I always attribute the muffled tones and the gravel in my voice to the low quality mics and ambient noise.
Now that I have found out the problem is just me, I am going to have to work on training my voice. Alternatively, I could try talking in falsetto, a la Rudy Vallee!
