Very excited about the opportunity to just focus on my voice career now. It's been a long time coming and I just needed that extra little 'push'; fortunately it came from my family!

Love the networking lunch idea - send me more…"

Just got this back from the production house. A little TV spot I did in which I got to leap outside my comfort zone. Nothing better than a client who takes a chance on a voicetalent!

"Hey y'all! I'm needing to look into getting an ISDN line in my house, but from what I hear, getting a hold of the right ear at Bell can be tricky. Any fellow Canadian VO talent have ISDN in their house, and maybe some info as to who you talked to…"

"Hey Rick! No I'm afraid I'm not related to a Peter Pongracz. I'm sure somewhere down the bloodline there's a distant relation, but not an immediate one. LOL!

Cheers!

"Hey Luis!

Not sure what your sound card/audio input setup is, but here's how I have mine setup. It's probably more complex than it needs to be but it works best in my situation.

I have my microphone/preamp patched straight into my MBox. I then run…"

"Thanks Nancy - the really silly part in hindsight is that my condition wasn't nearly as bad as you'd expect. In fact, in comparison to some I've seen, it would be considered non existant. But it was the few people who pointed it out at the time…"

  • :) Glad we could connect, Mike! I actually grew up in the Bayview & Sheppard area (I remember Bayview Village when it was a strip mall and they still had a Kmart. I worked at just about every store there as a teenager. :D ) - but I've come to truly appreciate Newmarket the long I live here. Hope to see you at a VO TO gathering at some point. All the best, -- Jodi
  • Hey there, Mike! I see Pat has already contacted you. :) I regularly attend the VO TO meetings also and it would be great to see you there! (Love your Green Day impression!! :D) I also recognize a number of the commercials you've done. Fantastic! Well done. And congrats on the move to full time!
  • Great demos Mike. You have a lot of talent to offer out there. I'm sure you will be very successful. Next lunch we are targeting for is Monday, June 14th 12 noon at Frog & Firkin at Yonge and Sheppard. Drop me a note at pat@patsvoice.com so we can stay in touch Mike. Good luck moving forward.

    Pat
  • Good luck Mike! Hope the full time move into VO is a huge success!!!
  • Mike, just wanted to congratulate you on the move into VO fulltime. I can very much relate to what you are doing as I too am doing the same thing. Having fun doing it too. Lets stay in touch as I live in TO as well. Continued good luck. If interested, I organize a VO Networking lunch every 3 months in Toronto. Let me know if you are interested in joining us. Continued good luck with your VO career.

  • Mike, take it from someone who’s owned over a hundred grand in top end mics; The best mic is the one that sounds best on you!” Michael Jackson's Thriller album broke all kinds of records and yet most of the tracks were recorded with a Shure SM-7 … ‘get what I’m saying? With more than one U47, an Elam 251, M-149, M269c, TLM103 and a bunch of others having been in my collection, the one mic that continued to work best FOR ME is the MKH-416. So get your hands on as many mics as possible and try them out, you might be surprised which one sounds best.

    I hope you dont mind the coment.

    Best,

    Donald James
  • Hi Mike,
    I went to the University of Lowell 1974 - 1978 with a Peter Pongracz- are you related?
  • You rock Mike...Thx bro...looking forward to the pics and I guess I will get one of those adapters for the 1/8 to 1/4. I might have my mixer set up diff. My Emu1616 breakout box is not connected to the mixer at all. IT goes straight to my computer's sound card. Curious about your set up pics though..thx bro...
  • Mike...hey bro...you probably will not get this for a while but...I need some help brother...with you know who...yes, THAT-1, know who I'm talking about? ha ha...Well, I read your post that you had one so I need help hooking it up. I have a Behringer Xenyx1204 mixer and I am not sure where to hook it into. The only plugs that would fit the input and output of THAT-1 is in the CD/TAPE input and output...is that where you connect you know who, THAT-1? let me know bro... you can email me directly at acevedo.luis@hotmail.com Love your demos BTW....great job...
