It sounds like you being conscious of talking into a mic. :)

Wow, you know the voice I heard off of the stereo sounds so much better than me. It didn't even have that much nasalness that I'm so used to hearing.

I can definitely tell that it's your voice, but your tone is typically higher, and you normally speak with a different cadence. However, the last sentence sounded like you--in large part, I think, because you relaxed a smidge, so you sped up a little and used a questioning intonation (which is how you very often speak, even when making statements). Also, you were missing the hesitations (ums and such) that tend to pepper your speech.

One of the cool things about making a recording is I can practice to get rid of the uhms.

I think I tend to talk at the upper end of my range which tends to leave me feeling like my voice is about to crack, so I tried lowering my pitch a little. I frequently worry that my voice isn't gendered enough, but maybe the slight shift up doesn't matter that much.

I'd definitely know it was you if I heard it without being told. So, yeah, I think it sounds like you. I do think you often use a better rhythm in your speech and sound even more articulate.

I know plenty of girls who have lower pitched voices than yours.

Interesting... when recording my voice and listening to it critically i'm pretty sure that i'm pretty much dead in the middle of the average human speaking voice.

It's you.

You're "uhms" are identical to the "uhms" one of my favorite law professors used. After the first couple of classes, our brains tuned the "uhms" out, and only someone new to class ever even noticed it.

So that explains why some people call me eloquent even though I know that I have lots of uhms and odd pauses, they just filter them all out...
