Hi! You’re at the frequently asked questions page!
Susheel C is an Indian English Voice Over artist who provides online services for a range of voiceover needs.
Let’s address some frequently asked questions about the voice-over services that Susheel C provides.
How much do you charge?
This depends on a number of factors including the length of the project, the usage (broadcast, non-broadcast, audiobook, eLearning, IVR, etc.), and the turnaround time. Contact me for an estimate.
How do you record the audio?
I use professional equipment to record voiceovers. It starts with having a recording environment that is non-reverberant and quiet this is achieved with various sound absorbing and sound blocking panels, to create an ideal sound booth.
Next, I capture my recording on an Audio Technica AT4040 microphone, and a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 3rd Gen Audio Interface. My DAW of choice is Adobe Audition; in which I edit the audio, master it to the required sound levels without clicks & breaths, and make it ready for delivery to you.
Can you provide music or sound effects?
Yes. I have a library of royalty-free music and sound effects. I am also able to find specific types of music or sound effects to match your project upon request.
Do you record phone calls?
No, but I can make a recording for your company’s IVR (Interactive Voice Response) system.
Can you do remote recordings/directed sessions?
Yes. I am able to do remote recordings, and I do offer directed sessions over Skype/Zoom/Hangouts.
Do you edit the recordings?
Yes. Unless you specifically request raw audio, I will edit the recordings to remove unwanted sounds (e.g. breaths, clicks, mouth noise, etc.) and to remove unwanted sections of the recording. I will also master the audio with a fine-tuned plugin chain to achieve consistent sound across recording sessions.
How do I get the recordings?
I will upload the recordings to Dropbox or Google Drive. You can download them from there whether you have an account or not.
What format will the recordings be in?
The recordings will be in a 16-bit, 48 kHz WAV file. I can also provide other formats (including MP3) upon request.
How can I get in touch with Susheel C directly?
What languages do you speak?
While I am an Indian English Voice Over Artist, I do speak a few regional languages. I speak English, Tamil and Hindi. However, I only do voiceovers in (neutral) Indian English.
How quickly do you deliver the voice-over recording?
My typical turnaround time (TAT) is 48 hours. However, if you have a special need, do get in touch with me… If possible, I will often be able to deliver work in 24 hours or less for an appropriate fee.
Where are you located, and can you deliver your recording to me from there?
In today’s digital world, I can deliver pristine quality audio no matter where you are on the planet – or maybe even if you reach out to me from the International Space Station! My recordings are broadcast-ready, and you can simply plug them into your edit, and you’re ready to go!
Do you provide free auditions (samples)?
Yes. If you have a recording that requires it, I will happy to provide you with a free audition or sample recording for your script. If not, I have quite a few voice samples that you can listen to, and understand what you can expect from me.
