Outstanding Voice-Overs and Audio Post-Production Services
Welcome to SpeakinPeeps.com, the internet home to voice-over artists Paul and Jody Florkewicz!
Why Voice Matters
When you consider a voiceover actor for your project, where do you start? The voice you choose could very well define your brand identity. It is that important. We are fully aware of the critical nature of your project.
At SpeakinPeeps Voice Overs, we have no egos when it comes to our voice-overs. If you’re not happy, then we’re not happy. We understand our voices may not ultimately be right for your project.
That’s okay. We really won’t be insulted. However, we believe you owe it to yourself to choose a voice-over actor who represents your brand with confidence.
If you’re curious about our range, our demos should give you a pretty good idea. Give them a listen. If you wish to download any, just control and click (or right-click) and save it to your desired location. You can give the file a name if you like, as our site-host file name is a little nebulous.
We have made our demos available on the home page. Depending on whose projects you want to listen to, you will find the source project files on Paul and Jody’s individual pages. The files should also give you a good idea of their production capabilities.
Yep, the business may be small, but we’re mighty. SpeakinPeeps Voice Overs are two people in a redesigned space dedicated to highly competitive, world-class voiceovers. We hope to deliver great results and nurture long-term relationships with our clients.
It’s a well-isolated and treated space for a quiet and neutral response. Paul considers himself an amateur musician who loves recording his own material. He has installed bass traps and diffusion panels at strategic locations throughout the recording space.
Paul uses a calibrated microphone (a Dayton Audio EMM-6) along with an acoustic analysis program called Room EQ Wizard (REW) to tune the space as best as possible. Granted, it’s not necessary for voice-over work. But he figured, “Why not kill two birds with one sheet of Rockwool?”
AC mains are transformer-isolated and stabilized. We use an isolated ground exclusively for the audio equipment, meaning Paul physically drove down a solid-copper ground rod. The result is a noise-floor with no ground loops.
(Star-ground, for those interested)
The digital audio workstation (DAW) has an unlimited number of tracks, an extensive library of virtual studio technology (VST) effects plugins, and can render audio to different output file formats.
Our voiceover recording space also functions as the control room. Paul has relocated all the noise-producing electronics (PC-CPUs, toroidal transformers, etc) to locations outside of this space.
We feature both solid state and tube mic preamps to address your preferences. Our mic selection ranges from the ubiquitous Sure SM-58 dynamic to the venerable, "World’s quietest mic,” also known as the Rode-NT1A, a large-diaphragm condenser. We have a fairly extensive sound effects library and source music.
The monitoring system is comprised of Alesis M1Active-520 near-fields, with Altec-Lansing “real world” alts, and a custom-made, mono cube for content balance reference.
Networking is via DSL with speeds measured at 720Kbps down / 410Kbps up / 45ms latency. Basically, our studio is a full-service facility that offers everything from raw, untreated, voice-only files to fully produced, sweetened, and broadcast-ready spots.
