I've been taking care of the rent of the workstation that we're doing the sound editing and remixing on; I've thrown several hundred dollars (over $500 by this time, but probably less than $800) at this project already. From the experience I've gained, there's one thing that's becoming apparent: I'm going to have to personally meet anyone who wants to do a voice after I've got their part ready to record and they're going to have to work with me at my side, OR I'm going to need to get a specialized software for dubbing called Vocalign.

How much is Vocalign? $375 for the one that does not specify forign language dubbing capability, or $699 for the professional version.


How many people are really, really interested in this project, and would you be willing to put some money up for this program?

Our glorious Milky Way is a tiny, infinitesimal speck of sand in this vast, incomprehensible universe. And somewhere in that Milky Way is our own solar system, less than one billionth of that speck of sand that is the Milky Way. And then there is our planet Earth, one hundred trillionth of that one billionth of that one speck of sand. And on this planet Earth there is DEV-0, an insignificant blemish with a lifespan too short to measure when placed in infinite time.

And you are here, with them, as so many specks of sand.

It sounds like you are trying to make this a high quality sub.

Is there any free software that will do a good job of this that could be distributed for those who will contribute voice over work?

Exactly. It deserves no less. If this is to get a licensing company's attention, it NEEDS to be high quality. I doubt a low-quality dub would do anything towards getting Kinnikuman looked at as a product worthy of investing in.

Not that I know of; most things that allow the use of a higher quality microphone (i.e. one that uses XLR inputs and not the little eighth-inch 'headphone' jacks) require a piece of hardware that allows the computer to accept the audio.

I thought Pro Tools Free or Avid Free would work, but the trickiest thing is getting the timing of the vocals correct-- I can't time-shift the recorded vocals without some nasty sounding artifacts surfacing, and if timing isn't completly correct, the synch will look terrible.

I'm doing the editing, and I'll not stop until everything is as close to perfect as I think I can get it. This is just about nine times longer than any project of this type I've done before, and I don't have access to any sfx libraries or willing vocal talent this time around other than me and my little brother.

To get this done right, I do believe I'm going to have to record people one-on-one. I didn't expect this at the start, but unfortunatly, that's what it is looking like.

where are you located?? (you probably have your location listed elsewhere but I didn't do my homework) This is probably a long shot if you're not within about 150 miles of me but I've always been interested in doing voice-over stuff and I do have a good vocal range for that sort of thing. I also have a pretty decent background in recording/audio production and own a good amount of quality gear, so.... LMK.
and if you're too far away for in-person work, there's sort of a Plan B...but we could discuss that later.

If you've got a Pro Tools rig, Plan B is easy. You get the session file e-mailed to you. If no Pro Tools, what's your plan B?

Well - that's the thing - I'm the only one in the universe that doesn't have Pro Tools. What I do have is a DAW (a Roland VS1680) with time code and various technical bits and pieces. I'm in the dark ages, I know, but I've used it with a good amount of success in the past. So plan B would entail: 1) I get the video clips in a format I could view on my comp. (probably like you said - I get the 'session file' emailed to me) 2) characters...lines...vocal instruction, etc. 3) I record my lines in real-time while watching the clips. 4) I send you the MP3's of what I recorded...and hope that the match-up/dub meets your approval. 5) you integrate those files.
That's about it. It's probably not that much different than how you've been doing it for your auditions aside from trying to match stuff up myself in real-time.
So, if this sounds like anything you're cool with trying, let me know - as I'd love to give it a shot.

Well, the thing is that the script, video, and audio is all embedded in the Pro Tools session file; that cannot be accessed without access to Pro Tools. Until I type the scrypt out of the Pro Tools, there's not going to be a scrypt on here-- and I'm kinda buisy right now.

I do have the rewrite done, but I just havn't removed it from the PT session.
