mici don’t think i’ll ever feel comfortable hearing my own voice recorded.  there’s just something about hearing your own voice and realizing every imperfection and every missed note that just isn’t cool.  with that being said, i’d like to be a recording artist.  hahaha.  does that make any sense?  yeah, no, it didn’t.

in my mind, i sound a lot clearer than i do in real life.  to me, i’m very articulate, my voice is soothing, and all my words are enunciated.  but when i hear myself recorded, all my words kinda get mushed together and i sound all mumbly and not very soothing at all.  i guess what i have to realize is that people hear me a lot more than i hear myself and they’re used to it so i should just take it as normal.

does anyone like to hear their own voice?  maybe it’s just an issue of training yourself.  like these professional recording artists and such, i bet they just had to force themselves to listen to their own voice until they got used to how awesome it sounded.  maybe that’s what i need to do.  i’m slowly getting used to being comfortable with my own voice.  and i know that last statement just contradicted what i said in my first sentence, but has any of this post made sense thus far?

  1. I have this thing where I think I sound good when I sing but I listen to myself and find a ton of things wrong. I actually found that I sound better when I first record than when I re-record… and it also took me awhile to not cringe when I heard my own voice, lol. But I don’t think you have anything to worry about–you have a wonderful voice.

    some describe it as froggy, but i’d like to think it’s extra sexy.

  6. Dude, I hate listening to my own voice record. To me, I sound a bit baritone and articulated, but then in recording I sound like a FOB and sound like someone put up too much treble. I’m trying to get used to it.

    I think the recording artist thing made sense…

  8. yeah i ‘hear’ you. hahaha
    but man, i have the same problem. when i talk i think i’m all smooth and sexy, but when i hear my recording it’s all slurred and sloppy. i guess i have to try extra hard to enunciate everything and get on that pitch.
