There’s nothing better than having your own vocal booth so you can easily create professional voiceovers at home. Have a look here, this is how I built mine.
Having your own home studio enables you to be very quick and efficient but what about when you’re away from home? Do you shut up shop, pop a sign on your website and not complete any orders until you get back? I think not!!
Technology is getting better all the time, and now we have the ability to record top-quality voiceovers from all manner of places, just by using a little imagination!
In this blog post, I’m going to review what I do to create killer voiceovers on the road.
recently moved house and needed a new recording space or vocal booth. I like to be cost-effective, and buy products as cheap as I can whilst also being of good quality and fit for purpose.
I’ve read many articles on the subject but I’d like to explain in detail some of the products I purchased and what approach I took.
Soundproof or not?
If you’ve got deep pockets you can soundproof your space, but this requires essentially building a room within a room and filling the void with mass. I don’t think this is needed as long as you already have a quiet space.
What you will need to do is acoustically treat the space. This is NOT the same as soundproofing and only prevents sounds reflecting back into the microphone and causing echoes and other nasty artifacts on your recordings.
You need big pockets for this!
Do I need a Mic Pre-Amp? A question I am often asked, and one that can give two different answers depending on who you speak to.
I have created voiceovers both using a Mic Pre-Amp and without, and to be honest I don’t really see the need for them! Shock! Horror! I imagine that above comment will really upset some audio techno folk! But I’ll try and explain a little my reasoning….
