I don't have a studio so I used my buddy's. All one take. No edits/chops/effects. Just me, first go, straight thru.

Comments: You've got some background noise or maybe static from the mic itself as well as some reverb going on. This sounds like you did speed before you turned on your mic. Everything kind of runs together. your voices aren't bad, I just wish you would have slowed it down and really concentrated on acting instead of sounding like a speed reading of a script. Recording in one take usually ends up being a bad idea. Next time, I'd love to hear something from you where you did some post-production and went all out with your acting.

Is that Jesse from Breaking Bad? Haha
I REALLY like that character. The voice, the inflections, everything. He's very well done.
Teddy... Good, but could use some work. So here goes that:

First off, despite how different the voices might feel, it's important that you go all out in contrasting your voices. Use different pitches. Make his voice quite a bit higher, so he really stands out against Steve.

The same goes for your other characters. Make sure their voices are in different registers! Otherwise, it's obvious that it's all one guy.

Next, recording and mixing:

First off, it sounds like you used a good mic. But regardless of the quality of a mic, you NEED to insulate the area around it. Otherwise, an unpleasant reverb makes its way into the recording. It sounds distant, as opposed to the presence you're looking for.
Second, noise removal is crucial.
Simply take a two or three second recording without anything but the ambiance of the room, and go to Noise Removal in the Effects bar of Audacity, and you just have to Get Noise Profile. From then on, you can use the Noise Removal to remove the background buzz.

Ultimately though, I really liked this. The characters were likable and interesting, working as a perfectly contrasting duo. The story was easy to listen to, and consistently charming. The ending was funny and satisfying (though a little predictable), and this stands to be one of the only two entries I have been able to listen to from start to finish.

Good work!

PS I'm scouting you for the Audio Portal

Hey man! Thanks a lot for all the feedback and advice. I will buying my own equipment by the end of this month - so far I have limited knowledge of a friend's studio which I use on occasion (and for this).

Much appreciated, sir!
