Improving your project one spoken word at a time
Working closely with ad agencies and creative directors for many years, Jeff knows how to schedule sessions with flexibility, take direction during the recording session when applicable - and maximize every moment of your time in the studio by being prepared and working efficiently. If recording via phone patch, expect delivery of your VO file, (clean, edited and ready for your mixing engineer) within minutes of your session conclusion. Voice files are recorded in broadcast quality 48kHz, 24-bit mono .WAV or .AIF (unless otherwise specified) and either delivered via e-mail or to a private, password-protected link assigned to your account on his private server. Jeff's recording studio is fully equipped with ISDN, Source Connect, Phone Patch and Skype. Expect friendly, professional service.
Jeff McNeal performs 99.7% of his work from his private recording studio, but will travel to remote studios when needed. Both modern and professionally-equipped, his studio combines state of the art audio technology and digital sound tools with old school warmth and industry standard hardware. For microphones, Jeff uses either the Sennheiser 416 or Neumann designed MK-47 microphones going into either an Avalon 737sp or Requisite PAL Plus MkIII preamp. He records in a Gold Series Vocalbooth and uses Adobe Audition for recording and editing. For directed sessions, he offers his clients the choice of ISDN, Source Connect, Skype and Phone Patch for connection. In this industry, availability and efficiency are of paramount importance - and both are a hallmark of Jeff McNeal's client services.
Jeff's success as a national voice artist is built on the strength of his vast overall experience in a wide variety of VO disciplines. His credits include international TV commercials for Minute Maid Orange Juice, Lego Toys and McDonald's. National TV commercials for Visa, Amazon.com, McDonald's, Dodge Trucks, Sprint, Intel, Mechanixwear and hundreds of others. He also voiced numerous movie trailers and campaigns, narrated promos, appeared in feature films doing ADR and done voice matching for various projects. A vocal chameleon, Jeff has replicated the voices of several other actors including Christopher Plummer, Tom Selleck, Morgan Freeman, Mike Rowe, Patrick Stewart and Ron Perlman to name a few. Jeff McNeal is ready to lend his voice to your critical promotional and marketing efforts next.
On a personal note, Jeff is married, the father of three adult children and front man for a popular local classic rock tribute band imitating the vocals of over fifty original singers. His videos on YouTube have attracted millions of views and over 3,000 subscribers. Rock artists whose vocals Jeff emulates include Mick Jagger, all four Beatles, John Fogerty, Jim Morrison, Neil Diamond, Tom Petty, Eric Burdon, Van Morrison, Donald Fagen, Elvis Presley, Barry White and dozens of others. A link to his dynamic band is below if you're curious or looking to hire high energy, live entertainment for a corporate event or private party.
"Time is money in the studio. I work fast, and take direction with ease. I know what "split the difference" means and my internal clock amazes clients when reading copy for time. From straight announce to character roles, I've done them all and work well with producers, writers and directors to satisfy the client, every time."
"Hands down the best and easiest VO guy I've ever worked with in my long career through many markets."
--Ginger Zumeta - Creative Services Director
