A Little More Background & Why Your Audio Quality Matters

Through multi-week classes, single-day workshops and one-on-one coaching, I can demystify the recording process, help you gain mastery of necessary software, and teach you how to understand quality audio for voiceover.

Along my way, I invested a lot of hours in positioning microphones, cobbling together networks of computers and electronic musical instruments that really didn’t want to talk to one another, and wasted way too much time watching reel-to-reel tape rewind for the next take. The evolution of the digital recording systems we now take for granted has been nothing short of amazing.  These now provide amazingly efficient and powerful tools available to almost anyone.

Why Audio Quality Matters

While anyone can obtain these tools, not everyone has learned how to use them well. As more auditions become the voice actor’s responsibility to record, one of the critical differences in booking work becomes the quality of the recording itself. Learning what to listen for in order to measure that quality is now a key skill to possess. I work with you to develop those skills.

Get the Audio Under Control and Focus on the Acting

Of course, very few individuals decided to become voice artists so they could learn more about audio engineering.  As a working voice actor, I’ve learned what is important for auditions and production work. Combining that with my experience in studios, I can help you focus on those parts of the recording process that matter in VO. Working together, we will find what is strong, improve weaknesses and create a way for you to consistently submit optimum audio.
