This could be something you could add to your next presentation or whatever you prefer (your own voicemail?).
Adding some music to powerpoint presentations where one has to record their own voice might make quite a difference. I personally dislike silences and, instead of humming of coughing, I think a good soundtrack could help keeping the rhythm going and make it sound like it’s a little bit more “professional” than it actually is.
Here are some websites for loops:
- http://www.uniquetracks.com/Free-Music-Loops.html – Contains good quality and simple loops for Powerpoint. My favourite, for now.
- http://www.brainybetty.com/soundsforpowerpoint.htm – Has a good number of loops but these are MIDI and the quality as you might know is not that great.
- http://www.dievantile.com/tag/free-production-music/ – like uniquetracks but has – what I understand – longer songs so, perhaps, not a real loop as one would mean. Still worth having a look.
And here the instructions on how to put a sound/file into a powerpoint presentation and to set things up so that i plays in loops:
