    Voice over request for DJ Drop


    Hi Guys,

    New here, simply requesting a deep vocal voice over used for dropping in DJ sets.
    I DJ under the name of "XN7RIK" (pronounced as eccentric)

    asking for a recording of "Eccentric" to be said in a movie-like voice over (male or female)

    Thanks in advance.

    Wait a bit. You'll get some replies. If not, I'd say search for a user called Speedenza - I believe he's doing many requests lately.

    I don't know if it's wise to do sample requests on conditions, especially when the condition is to pitch in money.
    While I would love people pitching in, I wouldn't want them to feel forced about it. After all, the site is called "free"sound.

    To the original poster: I'll try to do something in terms of recording, but I can't guarantee that that'll suffice your needs. Also, the sample will be unclean since I'll be using a laptop mic.

    I'll get back to you soon with both dry and mixed versions.

    EDIT: I am not going to do any effects on it unless they are needed. For now, I did some random takes and you see if it helps you (I was trying different voices, so my pronunciation is way off for some of the samples). Otherwise you'll have to bank on Speedenza's offer - choose what works for you. smile
    I am uploading the file as I type.

    @afleetingspec - That's a fair point. It was just my good intentioned way of trying to support Freesound. It's a site we all value and use, but the reality is that it costs money to run - as your Pledgie badge rightly reminds us. Sorry if anyone thought it was against the spirit of the site...

    Here you go: http://www.freesound.org/people/afleetingspeck/sounds/168260/
    Once it gets moderated, you will be able to download it (until then, when you click, it will show as "page not found," so just give it about a day; usually takes way less time than that to get moderated).
    Good luck!

    Nothing against you or your request, but there are many people here who are come-and-go, and all they need is one sample. We can't stop to ask everyone to donate money. Also, I have never seen someone ask donation in return for sample uploads, so it struck me as a bit off.
    I suppose we are all a community here, and everyone has his or her own rules; I respect what you asked for, but I would have not minded it had the donation been asked from a person who had time and again requested samples (even then I'd be a bit iffy).
    No need to be sorry, though! We're all trying to look out for freesound!

    We're in agreement! It would be easy to deter people from contributing to the community - and no-one wants that. Regards...

    Thanks Guys, I'll have a listen when the sample comes up.

    And in terms of donating, I'd love to if I used this site a bit more, however at the moment I'm barely getting any help (apart from you two) and it would seem to be a paid request if I had to donate for my first request, but I do understand.

    Anyways, I hope more people do this request as it is very simple requesting just one word. "Eccentric" be said. I do not need "DJ" in front of it. Thanks!

    If, for some reason you do end up using my sample, you'll have to cut out the word "DJ" from it. Some takes are without DJ and some are with.

    Did a load of recording yesterday so we squeezed this one in too - it's literally just the single word you asked for. I'm sure afleetingspeck's samples will be great - but it's another one to play with...

    Thank you Speedenza!

    I'll let you know how it goes once the link comes up,

    I haven't had a chance to mix @Afleetingspeck's version yet.

    Cheers for the help.

    I'm afraid so. Some other samples I did for this request http://www.freesound.org/forum/sample-requests/33031/ are still awaiting moderation after 10 days...

    I posted a request earlier on the Bug reports forum - some of my sounds were in the mod queue for 2 weeks which (I think) is unusually long - not sure what went wrong - if anything.
    But...it's done now - link should work...
