HIGH ELF VOICE AUDITIONS

This is where you can upload your High Elf (Altmer) voice auditions.  Please keep this thread only for auditions - feedback and other comments relating to voice work can be posted in the hub thread.

Sample lines:

http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Morrowind:Tyermaillin   Basic skill training is cheap. We give you discounts for higher rank in the Blades, and we keep our prices low. But advanced training is never cheap, even from us. Look. To get you started, here's my old alembic. Maybe you can get a few gold for it, or use it yourself.

 

http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Morrowind:Tenyeminwe

Thank you for taking me to the Elf-Skerring. I was keeping these scrolls just in case something unfortunate happened. Since I have arrived safely, I feel you deserve them.

 

Voice Description:

High elf males should sound like Benedict Cumberbatch.  A deep, rich voice with British inflection.  Not commanding in tone, but with an aire of superiority and condescension to others.

High elf females should sound like Cate Blanchett.  Most of them need a mature and regal tone with a posh British accent.

I'll post this in each elf

I'll post this in each elf topic because I'm sure if the voice could fit either Altmer, Bosmer, Dunmer.

I decided to do a male High Elf, i was going for the snobby Aldmeri-Dominion type from Skyrim. I hope this is good? :)

Here's my audition for any Altmer voice in the game. The first version is pitched down a tiny bit because my actual voice is a little high, but the second one is unedited. Thanks. :)

Andil seems to think he is very important. I tried to just do American + pompous, hopefully it doesn't sound like it's trying to be English. *shrug*

@RealoFoxtrot

Hi. We are going a different direction than that with male Altmer. Think Benedict cumberbatch.. Deep, rich british voice. You are welcome to audition again if you think you are up for it.

@Anduniel

This is pretty good :) You could do well as a young Altmer. I have 2 issues with it though.

1. Although you are speaking in the right way, you need to read a little more confidently (hypocrites if you ass me? no. ask? yes. Make sure you get all the words out properly)

2. There is some noise in the background. In case you haven't already, you can get help from my tutorial... it is so simple that anyone should be able to follow it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AaPkowFbfYI

Ah right.... my normal voice then.

I know what you mean by Benedict, however I'm a big fan of him for his non Sherlock role XD Cabin Pressure: http://youtu.be/ElCYcqV0xkI?t=1m1s

finding it hard to do the lines though cause they all kind of sell themselves to someone who is shockingly arrogant and narcissistic, rather than posh British.

@Tartan Kiwi

Yeah.. alright. There are some audio issues but I think we could make that voice work :) Try to get rid of audio problems like the airy breath sounds and such... We obviously cannot have that in the game.

@Realofoxtrot

Alright well try your best ;)

Your voice has promise, but the accent is off, a bit.  We need authentic British - and a large part of this is the R sounds.  If the R sounds at the ends of words are too pronounced, it gives the voice away as North American.

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhotic_and_non-rhotic_accents

Also, try to keep your voice from dipping below what's comfortable for your voice, or it starts to sound forced.

Okay... trying another take at the High Elf. This time taking a load of lines from different parts and doing them together.

Hopefully, these are more in line with what you are looking for

The pitch of the voice is

The pitch of the voice is good and the accent is there, but you still need to work on the delivery. There are a few muffled words and the snooty condescending and sarcastic tone isn't there.  

The emphasis of certain words and not others is important to convey the subtle sarcasm. Go through these lines as you would in a conversation, not just reading the lines from your screen.

I apologize for the quality

I apologize for the quality of the audio for this one. Tried to clean it up and it went wrong. Any assigned work will be much better, i promise, cause will be in a better recording location.

A lot of the ones in the list are rather strange to put emotion into, so i took some lines from Skyrim this time, from the Character Ancaro.

Not sure if this is fitting for Tenyeminwe...if not maybe my voice could fit elsewhere. The sound quality of this track is the highest I could produce so if it's not good enough I'll have to step out.

Hi again!

Hi again!

Another sampling from me (in addition to Nord and Orc) showcasing some Altmer voicing this time. She's a Thalmor character, so she's got a sinister tonality, but I can swing different vocal qualities in the same accent. If this sounds good, I can try out some specific character lines.

Yo, doing some dialogue that
Yo, doing some dialogue that someone else put up earlier for a shop keeper. I've done slight variations on the dialogue with deep, medium, and high pitches. Got a slight advantage at this as I'm English so I have a natural accent, but also my voice is quite naturally rich sounding, so I didn't have to tweak my voice all that much for this.

I have my audition here. I use Audacity and a Snowball mic. This is my first time with something like this, so any constructive criticism is appreciated, especially if I might be better suited for another character or race.

High Elf audition. -I'm a bit ill so I've got a blocked nose and sore throat so the voice will sound slightly different in the future.

I also have a relatively 'smooth' Oxford accent without the growl if you would like to hear that.
