How to have your voice in an ambience

We are looking for very specific sounds that are not available on internet. Without your help, some ambiences can’t be done.

Everything is explained on this page, with audio examples.

A small request ...

Before you start recording yourself playing the role, just recording yourself saying “Michael Ghelfi” out loud. So I can be sure that it’s your voice, and not the sound from some copyrighted content (game, movie, etc.)


No real language. Just pronounce random syllables. IF you need help, think about Tolkien’s elvish or Dovahkiin’s language in Skyrim.

Alternatively, take any text in a foreign language and put it here, then read it in a non-english pronounciation.

Feel free to add pauses and questions. Like when you are doing a real conversation (if the context allows it).


By sending these sounds, you agree to give me an unlimited commercial use over them, otherwise we can’t use them.


We’ll do our best to credit those who take part in it, but only if you want to.

How to record properly

To have good quality sounds, be careful about the background noises.

Turn off all sources of noises (fans, music, TV in the other room, mobile phone etc.). Close your windows and record it where the reverberation is low. If really, you can put pillows, sheets or carpets on noise generating devices to dampen the sound. Anything that absorbs sounds makes a big difference, textile is particularly efficient.

Place yourself at about 20 centimeters from the recording device. Avoid yelling if you don’t have a great mic.

Careful about how you speak : try to have a clear open voice and avoid ‘bad habits’ like tongue noises, slurps, etc. Speak with confidence.

You can definitely record several voices at the same time, such as a fake conversation. Ask people around you! (Family, companion, etc.) it’s a fun activity!

What programs to use

Apple and Windows both have free recording apps on their store. Otherwise you can download more professional apps like OBS, Adobe Audition, Reaper, etc. There’s also thisvery simple solution.

Other details

I have a preference for .wav files.

It would be fantastic if you could respect the naming convention => from the general to the specific.

  • voice_elf_male_01
  • voice_elf_male_02
  • Etc.
  • As for the length, a total length of 3 minutes is already good (separated in as many files as you want). More is always better, as it means more diversity and realism in my ambiences! 

Where to send the files?

The email address to send your home-recorded sounds is:

I recommend to send files through as they can be heavy.
