"Your voice is your identity." - Dr. Rupal Patel

Top 10 Takeaways

Quick Concepts from today’s episode:

  1. Dr. Rupal Patel is the founder and CEO of VocaliD

  2. The founding mission of VocaliD is to give every individual a voice of their own

  3. For short audio clips, it can be hard to distinguish AI from a real voice

  4. AI isn’t the only force taking jobs from professional voice actors, it’s also the freelancer who undercuts professional rates

  5. At the end of the day, the human voice will always be more expressive

  6. VocaliD is now working with a group of voice actors to make test voices to present to companies to understand how they can use this technology

  7. AI projects are now beginning to include diverse voices to appeal more to today’s audience

  8. Voice talent deserves to be compensated, but AI voicework may not pay the same as an hourly rate if your AI voice is used for new projects

  9. Voices are built with at least 90 minutes of audio. The more audio that is recorded, the more human the voice sounds

  10. On the commercial side, there is an opportunity for talent to carve a niche out as an AI voice. You can be doing something creative while your AI voice earns you money on smaller, more repetitive projects

"AI voices won’t go away. BOSSES should embrace the technology and use it to help others and leave a legacy." - Anne

What is sonic branding? Anne breaks it down...

Sonic branding is strategically developed sounds, songs, words, or tones meant to connect a company’s identity, product, or brand with a sound. As voice actors, it can help our businesses to understand sonic branding, what makes it powerful, why it works, and how we fit into it. Check out some iconic samples below and notice how they evoke emotion and connection to the brand:
