So, it's been about 2 weeks, and my voice is pretty much back to normal. But man, a chest cold couldn't have come at a worse time this year. Had to take a week off of narration to get better (and there was no way I was going to even try to record--if I could get through a sentence without coughing, it'd be a miracle. When that was subsiding, I had my bargain basement Sam Elliot voice).
Thankfully, now, I'm better, but now I have twice the work to do.
In other news, bought RX7 Standard software...holy crap, the background noise reduction/hiss removal/cleanup features on that were worth every cent. Everything I've been recording sounds incredible. So, shout out to Izotope.
Happy holidays, everyone!
