In 2020, due to the Pandemic, I was unable to continue working in studios in and around London. In order to continue my work as a voice artist, my home studio got an upgrade.
Here are the components of my setup. I use and thoroughly recommend all of the following for voice work in general.
DISCLOSURE: Some of the links herein are 'affiliate links'. This means that, at no additional cost to you, I will earn a commission if you click through and make a purchase.
My setup includes:
The Sennheiser MK4 is large-diaphragm studio condenser microphone, perfect for voiceover work that provides broadcast quality audio.
M Audio 192 4
The M-Audio 192-4 is a simple but effective audio interface with XML input, USB output and provides Phantom Power to my microphone.
iZotope RX8 Standard
iZotope RX 8 Standard is a powerful software suite for audio repair.
For its sheer simplicity and intuitive interface, Twisted Wave is my go-to DAW for narration (Mac only)
XLR Cable (Male to Female) for hooking up Microphone and Interface.
OneOdio A70s can switch between wired and bluetooth and perfect for in and out of the booth.
Livivo Mic Arm
This affordable but well built microphone stand clamps onto the desk and retracts easily when not in use.
Haquno Pop Filter
Another essential piece of kit is this affordable pop filter from Haquno for reducing plosives. Simple but effective.
Affordable but hard-wearing adjustable stand for a reading manuscripts from a tablet
iAnnotate is a powerful and intuitive app which I use to annotate manuscripts before recording
Acoustic treatment can be a tricky business. This 24-pack of tiles from Advanced Acoustics is a great investment.
AOC External Monitor
Being able to "punch and roll" is important. My AOC Monitor means I can edit while in the booth and not risk machine noise.
