I had to look some of those words up to pronounce them, as I had never encountered them before.

I like hearing you enough for the two of us, so it all works out.

Seriously... you have such a beautiful voice! *sighs* And it comes with the pretty face, too... *melts into a puddle*

Though, your mic going in and out hurt my ears. *chuckles* But editing! Man, that's doing too much effort for a poem. ^3^

My god the three of you sound almost exactly alike!!

Surely not... Both Ket's and Josi's voices are lower and huskier. They have voices suited for singing!
I'm the one who sounds like a kid!

One shot.  A few mistakes.

Ooh... *plays it a few more times* I like your voice, too...
Definitely melt-worthy. *grins*

Agh, well, bad mic and all...  you have such a beautiful voice. xP And you can sing! AND you're so pretty *_* You put stars in my eyes, Josi... literally! Stop being so wonderful, or I'll start having a crush on you >.>;;;;

Accent? Oh nohz! I've never thought that I had an accent... I've lived in the States all my life! *laughs* What kind of accent was it? Maybe it's just a case of East Coast vs. West Coast, or Midwest vs. West Coast...?

Or maybe I just live with a bunch of other people who speak the same way I do, so I don't think I have an accent? xDD

I decided to jump on the bangwagon. :P

My mic is odd, and brings my voice down in pitch from like 0:09-0:25. But other then that, a few mess ups purely on my part, as I kept forgetting that people need to breathe...

Heh, that one wasn't bad, I was doing another recording and you know those distorted phone voices from movies? It was that. 100%. Then it shifted to a 25 year old man's voice. That was just WEIRD.

Demonic possession!
*head spins around and vomits on Kalen* ;)

-grins-  You should hear me when I'm out partying...drunk or not.  That girly sweet voice totally disappears.

I've heard Ket in her more normal voice; to be honest, I would never have known that the woman in the recording was her if she hadn't said so! It's a nice voice though, as is yours, GT. Sweet, girly, and meek aren't always a good thing  :P

OK, so after posting my own, I finally got to listen to the others

MND your voice id gorgeous up until the puberty thing hit, but you did a great job.

Kalen, excellent job, did you ever work in radio, you have the voice for it, great annunciation.

Caeli, OMG, I never thought to look them up, just went through it, great job and beautiful voice.

Josietta, you know how I feel about your voice - more songs - please

Ket, great job and way to jump out in front, all those choir practices paid off, your voice is beautiful too.

And lastly, Thanks Adventurer, that was a lot of fun.

For anyone struggling with Windows XP, which has a recording time of 60 seconds...

Open Sound Recorder

Record NOTHING for sixty seconds.  That's right, nothing at all.  Save that as Blank.wav.



Next, stay in Sound Recorder, and hit Edit --> Insert file.



Browse to where you saved Blank.wav, and hit open to insert it.




Each time you do an iteration of Edit --> Insert, you get yourself another minute.

I myself took almost exactly 5 minutes to say this little monologue, and I'm a fast speaker.  I'd suggest at LEAST six.

Mine took 00:07:01 Minutes, but I read out loud slower than you, I would suggest to anyone trying this method listening to at least a portion of Kalen's and Mine and comparing speed we speak and compare that to your own, then make the judgment.
