Back in the day a great sounding home studio cost tens, if not hundreds of thousands of dollars to set up and install.
I’ve worked in quite a few of these expensive basement wonderlands. I wonder what happened to the clunky, multi-track analog tape recorders, the racks and racks of outboard gear that have long since been replaced by a few streamlined pieces of software.
Today my entire portable recording studio weighs less than 5 lbs- laptop included-and I marvel every time I slide the whole thing into a tiny carryon bag. Heck, I can even fit it into a large purse!
If you’re just starting out in voice over, the gear for your home studio is cheaper and easier than ever. But what can still complicate things is the sound isolation.
Do you have to pay for an expensive sound isolation booth? Do you need to build a new wing on your house?
When things take off in your voice over you may eventually want to invest in an isolation booth. But in the meantime there are a few easy ways to create a little pocket of sound isolation wherever you record, and best of all? They’re all free!
I share my tricks with you in this week’s Inside Voice Over video training blog.
