Voices released its latest resource for anyone interested in hosting podcasts, developing audiobooks, or voice acting in video games, television, etc. Along with career advice, the guide includes recommendations for cost-effective soundproofing and insulation.
Voices explains that, while soundproofing is often overlooked, it is an essential part of a home studio setup. It helps to produce professional quality recordings by reducing the unwanted sounds that need to be edited out. The guide recommends blankets and comforters as a beginner and budget-friendly insulation option.
Another important factor to consider is the choice of microphone. Voices recommends that beginner actors make a selection of microphones that suit their voice. Suggested approaches include trying out various microphone brands, testing different microphone options in the intended studio before settling on one, and seeking advice from experienced studio recording experts.
For headphones, the Voices guide recommends the Sony MDR-7560 and Sennheiser HD-200 Pro as top options. Over-the-ear studio headphones are generally preferred over earbuds due to their comfort and higher quality audio.
The guide concludes with professional business development tips for a successful voice acting career, personal marketing, networking suggestions, and more.
