P2P (pay-to-play) sites have been a PITA in the VO business since the early 2000s, trying to turn it into strictly a commodity business. It’s not. In real commodities markets, things run smoothly. By participating, buyers are obligated to get the most volume they can at the lowest possible price. Sellers are obliged to get the highest price they can, but in any case they must move inventory to make room for the next yield; the next crop. Both sides of the transaction are able to meet in the middle because while the product being traded in may be available at different qualities, at the end of the day both parties see it as categorically generic.

A lifelong performer, Scott is a male, American voice actor with 15+ years of experience as working voice talent. He’s also been a musician (singer / programmer), and a marketer in the Silicon Valley tech scene. Nowadays, he’s behind the mics day and night and does normally short- and mid-form work: corporate and commercial, also character and promo reads.
Though currently based in San Francisco, Scott works for producers and clients all over the world and across time zones regularly, mainly from his home studio. Otherwise, he works onsite at dedicated commercial studios in the Bay Area and in Los Angeles as needed.
Live-directed sessions work just like conference calls which happen to be getting recorded, with playback options available mid-way through if/as needed. Alternatively, Scott can roll self-directed. Buyers’ preferences vary so he regularly works both ways, also sometimes covers editing / QA to deliver finished, broadcast-quality voice tracks. Not mixing or full production, though. He can’t mix his way out of a paper bag.
NDAs and ICAs are routine. Subterreign Media (Scott’s parent company) carries liability coverage that normally meets or exceeds clients’ requirements. Moreover, he’s able to meet the needs of those with even the strictest of security protocols, including those in spaces such as finance, healthcare and government who need to maintain compliance with standards like HIPAA, FINRA and GDPR.
