Voice Acting. Hey, why not?

Guide to Voice Acting in your projects

This post serces as an introductory tutorial to using voice actors and voice clips in your rpg maker projects, basic questions will be answered and further questions can be asked by dropping comments.

Overview

The first thing that almost everyone will ask about voice acting is “Is it really necessary?” My answer is a straight “No.” However, it doesn’t mean that you’re not allowed to use them and they may add a certain quality to your game –  a more realistic and professional feel to it.

Where do I get voice actors that will do it only for their name in the credits !?

Say hello the Voice Acting Club, it’s one of the many communities for free voice actors that just do it for fun and experience – much like what us RPG Makers do with our projects. Simply make an effort to create an account and create a topic in the Auditions section of the forum – following the rules and regulations of course, set a deadline for the audition, give a day or two and BAM! Voice clips obtained.

What program should I use? Freeware please.

WavePad? Yes please! This program is free to download, and by far the best audio editing software I have ever bumped into – I absolutely love it and you should too!

Easy to use, powerful, and does nearly everything you ever want that is related to sound editing.

So what do I do now?

Try. At the very least, you’ll have more experience on holding auditions and using sound editing softwares and at most you’ll be able to improve the quality of your rpg maker project significantly. It will require some amount of effort, and I assure you it’ll be a good learning experience.
