FF7 Voice Audition Thread

(1/11) > >>

Update : In order to have a more professionnal sounding mod, auditions have been moved to :**-CASTING-CALL-EPISODE-1-**.  Rules have also slightly been altered.  All are free to apply.

It's finally here, first part of the project!

FF7Voice is a patch to apply Voice-Overs in FF7. The patch works by intercepting the dialog calls of the game and playing the appropriate recorded line from the protected sound archive. The original concept of FF7Voice was suggested by FF7Heart and a proof of concept was put together by Ficedula and perfected by Dziugo.

A full game script was produced for the game by Marc with the help of Tsetra, Revenile and Prince Lex.  Our recording will be based on that script and it contains every line by dialog ID and field location in the game as well as battle ID and movie name and timing.  DPLB also gave us the list of all of the world map text thanks to his retranslation project.  Recording will take place starting with major events of the game and working down from them in order of importance.

A test will be held on the bombing mission to see if a group recording method is the best way to do things.  The bombing missions has a limited numbers of lines and characters so it should do for a good test under Mumble, a free group voice chat software that has good voice quality and allows for multicast recording.  Group recording comes with its own set of advantages/disadvantages, namely that all Voice Actors involved in a scene meet for a few hours all at the same time, and we want to test to see if it is a better way of doing things than recording individual lines on our own as is the norm.  Should this test fail, the recording process will be done in the standard way of recording lines each on our own with a set deadline and sending them in to the director for revisions/sound processing.

Send an e-mail to [email protected] with the line below as well as your contact info (name, e-mail, phone number) schedule and anything else you'd like to add.  If your schedule will change within the year, please state it and say how it will change as best as possible.  Deadline for initial round of auditions is May 13th at 23:59 PST so please hjave your files submitted by then.

Looking forward to hearing your work!

Just got myself a pretty expensive condenser microphone with a pop shield, and I'm quite a recording enthusiast. I've got some proper studio equipment and software, so I may try out for a small part like Biggs or something. I'm probably not going to be able to do a group recording or anything though, since timezones will probably conflict etc.

Sent an e-mail.  I also forgot to mention that I also have Logic Studio available to me, and I'm somewhat experienced in editing audio

I have lots of sound editing experience and I can help you with a lot of the tedious stuff. I have Adobe Audition. Also I want to audition for some of the characters but right now I don't have my own computer. I am in the process of tyring to hasten my aquisition of a new PC just so I can be a part of this project  so please wish me luck :-D

Im still confused, do you just want some info or do you want actual sound files of the lines being read?
