Technology is always evolving, and that means there are always new tools available to help voice over artists elevate their work. In this blog post, we’ll take a look at some of the latest technologies that can help you take your recordings to the next level.

Microphones

One of the most important tools for any voice over artist is a good microphone. With so many different types and brands on the market, it can be hard to know which one is right for you. If you’re just starting out, you might want to consider a USB microphone like the Blue Yeti or the Rode NT-USB. These microphones are affordable and easy to use, and they produce great-sounding recordings. If you’re looking for something a little higher-end, then you might want to check out a condenser microphone like the Neumann TLM 103 or the AKG C414. These microphones are more expensive, but they’re also capable of capturing much more detail and nuance in your performance.

DAWs

Another important tool for voice over artists is a digital audio workstation (DAW). This is the software that you’ll use to record, edit, and mix your performances. There are a few different options available on the market, but two of the most popular are Pro Tools and Logic Pro.

Both of these DAWs offer a wide range of features and options, so it’s really a matter of personal preference which one you choose. If you’re just starting out, you might want to go with Pro Tools because it’s widely used in the industry and there’s a lot of online support available if you need help learning how to use it. Logic Pro is also a great option, especially if you’re already familiar with another DAW like GarageBand or Ableton Live. Whichever DAW you choose, make sure that it’s compatible with your computer before you make your purchase. When I started out, and I still use it today from time to time for simpler productions – Audacity – it’s a free Audio Editor that does a good job as well.

Other Technologies

In addition to microphones and DAWs, there are other technologies that can help voice over artists elevate their work. One of these is plug-ins: software programs that can be added to your DAW to give you additional features and options. For example, there are plug-ins that can help you remove unwanted noise from your recordings or add special effects like echo or reverb. There are also hardware devices called audio interfaces that can be used to improve the sound quality of your recordings by providing better signal processing than what’s available on most computers’ built-in audio hardware. And if you’re recording at home instead of in a professional studio, acoustic treatment can help reduce noise pollution and improve the sound quality of your recordings by making your room more acoustically friendly.

There are many different technologies available that can help voice over artists elevate their work. By investing in some basic equipment like a good microphone and a digital audio workstation, you’ll be well on your way to producing high-quality recordings that will impress your clients and help you land more work. And as you become more experienced, there are other technologies like plug-ins and audio interfaces that can further improve the sound quality of your recordings. So don’t be afraid to experiment and find what works best for you—with all of the tools available today, the sky’s the limit when it comes to producing professional- sounding recordings!

For myself I have a Rode Rodecaster Pro mixer paired with Rode NT1 that is setup in my IsoVox 2 Voice booth – I have a boatload of old microphones and for my coming podcast, predominantly in Swedish, I have a Rode Procaster and and a Podcaster microphones.
