Welcome to my website Exeter Voice Over, if you’re on this page then I hope you’ve just come here from watching my introduction webinar on the six step process I use to achieve professional quality audio.
I want to keep this page simple so this will be a basic list of the recommendations I made in the webinar.
To begin with
Basic - A closet lined with clothes is good enough.
Medium – Perspex tubes to make a frame with moving blankets hung over it.
Pro – Vocal booth, look at whisperroom, vocalbooth.com or if you’re really going elite go for Studiobricks.
The reality is that your car or a pillow fort is also good enough.
Basic (Free) – Audacity
Medium – Adobe Audition or Reaper
Pro – Apple Logic Pro or Avid Pro Tools
Large Diaphragm Condensors
Best for use in a vocal booth and if you’re going to be sat down reading a lot of information.
Basic – Rode NT2a
Medium – Sontronics STC - 3x
Pro – Neumann U87ai
For live sound and live events
Best option for location sound or if you’re not going to be moving around a huge amount
Basic – Rode Video Mic
Medium – Rode NTG…
Pro – Sennheiser MKH-416
As good as Pro or better?
Deity S mic 2
Synco mic D2
These provide power for your microphone and translate the microphone signal for your computer.
Basic – Focusrite 2i2
Medium – Audient id22
Pro – Universal Audio Apollo Twin
My biggest recommendation if you travel, are going to be interviewing or recording in your car.
NO SNOWBALLS OR YETIS!!!
Rode NT USB
My strongest recommendation to give you a flexible future proof option into the future is get a Zoom H5 and either the Deity S mic 2 or the Synco mic D2
Clean up software
This is the best software you will find for the purpose.
Version 9 was just announced but if you can get an earlier version for less, go for it. You don't need any more than version 6.
