Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO REACH YOU?
Debbie@DebbieIrwin.com, or my cell 917-533-5452.
HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE?
That's a great question, and the answer depends on more information from you! Many factors influence our discussion of rates including:
Budget | timeline
Placement: Broadcast (Radio/TV) or Non-Broadcast
Content Length: Runtime or script upload / word count
Usage scope: # of weeks, in what market(s)
WHAT'S THE OVERALL PROCESS?
After we determine the terms, the timeline and your file specs, you send me a final version of the script. (Phonetic pronunciations of any unusual/technical/non-English words are always appreciated.)
Once you've received the completed audio files, please listen to them at your earliest convenience. If any performance-related "pick-ups"(revisions) are necessary, such as for proper emphasis, interpretation, or changes to pacing, I'll correct them quickly at no additional cost.
Script changes/additions requiring a new recording may incur an additional fee.
WHAT HARDWARE |SOFTWARE Do YOU USe?
Only the best! Neumann TLM 103, Sennheiser MKH 416, Sound Device USBPre 2, Adobe Audition, Twisted Wave, Izotope RX7, iMac, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, iPad.
In the biz, we call it 'broadcast quality,' and while I am in NYC, none of the sights, sounds or smells make it into my recordings.

DO YOU OFFER TRANSLATION SERVICES?
Yes, I work with an accredited team and if there are languages beyond our scope, here are some of the best full-service translation companies I recommend:
Accredited Language Services
MAPA Translation Services
WHAT KIND OF TURN-AROUND TIME CAN I EXPECT?
Fast. Sometimes the same day, sometimes the next day. But as you'd expect, that could depend on my current schedule. I don't like to keep my clients waiting, so it's my goal to keep you in the loop, deliver the audio ahead of schedule and give you excellent service. That's why I’m called on again and again.
CAN YOU VOICE LIVE SHOWS?
Yes! Live announcing is fun and exciting! I've been behind the scenes in NYC at Alice Tully Hall, The Waldorf Astoria and Cipriani's, and I’m willing to travel!
