Creating voiceovers can sometimes be a real hassle. You have to find the right voice model for your needs, book a recording studio, find dates that work for everyone. It can be a real logistical nightmare. And the cherry on top of the cake, it can be pricey. This is where Meta Voice Studio comes in. Meta Voice Studio is a high-quality AI voiceover generator, that lets you generate professional voiceovers without the hassle.
To use the tool you will need to create an account. Once you’ve got your account up and running you can get straight into creating the perfect voiceover for your needs. You can use the tool for free but there are some limits on the free plan. With the free plan you have access to 8 voice avatars, can convert up to 30 seconds of audio per request, 5 minutes total conversion per month, additional minutes at $0.30 per minute, file upload and you can only use it for personal. If you want a few more options to play with and you’re creating voiceovers on a regular basis, then signing up to a paid plan may be better suited to you. The Meta Voice Studio personal plan at $10/month, includes 42 voice avatars, can convert up to 5 minutes of audio per request, 30 minutes total conversion per month, additional minutes at $0.30 per minute, file uploads, API access and a commercial license. If that still doesn’t fit the bill, try out the creator plan. This includes the same goodies as the personal plan but with an increase of 25 minutes of audio per request and 24 hours total conversion per month, you can also start voice cloning with this plan.
Ok, so you’ve now figured out the best plan for you and your needs. Let’s get to generating your voiceover. There’s two ways to get the ball rolling here. Either, speak into your microphone and record what you would like your voice model to say, or upload an audio file. Just a flag, that this audio can be no longer than thirty seconds or bigger than 10MB (free plan). I had to cut down my recordings a fair bit to fit these rules. Once you’ve recorded or uploaded your audio, it’s time to pick your AI Model. For the free plan you only have 8 Models to choose from, so choose wisely! You can preview the voices before committing but unfortunately the voices all seem quite similar. There’s no real change in voice age or accent which is a shame. I’m hoping Meta Voice Studio are working on this in the background and hopefully we’ll see a bit more diversity on the tool soon.
When I first used Meta Voice Studio the voiceover generator took at least 20 minutes to generate. This really put me off. We’re now all so used to things being super fast in the AI space. We’ve been spoilt by quick generators, speedy creators and rapid chatbots. The platform flagged that the servers for the free tier were busy and that maybe a paid plan should be considered. I found this a little cheeky, but if you’re willing to pay for the goods, this will really benefit you! It would also be great to be able to customize the voiceover in the free plan. At the moment, once the voiceover has been generated, that’s it. There’s no option to edit it.
I was surprised by the quality of the voice recordings, they felt professional and high quality. They were a lot better than I expected! But remember, if you want a super high quality voice over, you WILL have to share a super high quality recording with Meta Voice Studio so it can work it’s magic.
