VO4TA: Scratch

 

Here’s the funny thing about scratch tracks.

 

They are usually bad.  

 

However, you are given them for a reason. And that reason is usually extremely specific.  Example: “Please watch the video for the speed of the read.” Or: “Please listen to the scratch for the phrasing and the pauses - not the the voice”.

 

So you click and listen…

 

And the read is - well, bad.  It’s the producer reading.  Or the writer. Or somebody’s assistant.

 

Nevertheless, you need to pay attention and to pay attention you can’t judge the amount of “bad” - you need to listen for what the direction said to listen for.  


Just ignore “the bad.”
