With the arrival of the Internet, broadband technologies, new compressed audio formats and portable media players, the popularity of audio books has increased significantly.
Due to the growing acceptance, people involved in this business are becoming more powerful. There is a huge demand for them, especially now that people use portable audio equipment on a regular basis. People can find audio books online, download from iTunes Audiobooks, libraries who offers audiobooks for free, and some other who like to buy audiobooks CD format.
Over the time, figures show released that downloads have greatly increased this market, a format that first achieved popularity with the invention of the cassette and extended beyond childhood the experience of being read to.
Producing audio books consist of a narrator sitting in a recording booth reading the text, while a studio engineer and a director record and direct the performance. Audiobooks are distributed on CDs, MP3 CDs, and downloadable digital formats.
The advent of the Internet has introduced powerful means of delivery, many titles are now available on-line for download on to computers, tablets, and phones, or one may listen to website audio streams without having to download anything.
They are considered a valuable learning tool because of their format. Unlike traditional ones or a video program, people can learn from an audiobook while doing other tasks, although it should be noted that this can detract from the primary task, assuming the learning is not the main activity. The most popular general use by adults is when driving an automobile or traveling with public transport, as an alternative to radio. Many people listen as well just to relax or as they drift off into sleep.
If your production required to record audio books, at Elite Music Studios, we have the greatest voices in English, Spanish, Italian, German, among other languages to give live to your creativity.
“A good actor can do a thousand vices because he finds a place in his body for his voice and centers his performance from that place”. Charles Nelson
Less than 20 years ago, voice acting was almost exclusively the realm of voice actors—people specifically trained to provide voices for animated characters. The rise of the celebrity voice actor can be traced to a single film: Disney’s 1992 breakout animated hit Aladdin, where Robin Williams voiced the film’s hyperactive Genie.
The celebrification of voicework can be traced through the films Disney released in the years after Aladdin, from The Lion King (Jonathan Taylor Thomas, Whoopi Goldberg, James Earl Jones) to Home on the Range (Roseanne Barr, Dame Judi Dench). But the trend has been most prevalent in the computer-animated films that have dominated family-friendly cinema since Pixar released Toy Story in 1995.
The marketability of a big-name celebrity voice actor gave way, perhaps inevitably, to an even more insidious trend: directly basing a character’s appearance on the famous actor providing its voice. With the marketing machine growing larger by the day unfortunately, conventional voice actors rarely get the chance to helm a contemporary animated film. Banderas’s voice is perfect for Puss—the character was tailored to it, after all—but in the end, Banderas has one voice, and when the best voice actors have “a thousand voices,” it’s hard not to feel like they’re being wasted.
