Pay it forward

please be advised

This blog is about many aspects of voiceover:

  • from business to performance
  • from union jobs to solos
  • from PCs to Macs to iPads
  • from competition to community
  • from microphones to mixers
  • from tips to tricks


I do *NOT* blog (here) about:

  • politics
  • religion

I feel it would be crass and inappropriate for me to use this platform for anything other than VO. Isn’t it nice to take a break from those potentially divisive subjects?

Recording On The Road

Faced with recording an audiobook while on vacation, I devised a makeshift recording booth with cushions and a blanket to eliminate echo, unplugged a noisy fridge, and temporarily turned off air conditioning to prevent background noise. I bought a durable Shure MV7 USB/XLR dynamic mic for recording on-the-go and used my familiar DAW, Reaper, on a MacBook Air for editing. Despite an unconventional setup, I achieved ACX-compliant audio and view the mic purchase as a professional investment.

More About Audio Compression

In this post I highlight a Wikipedia page on Dynamic Range Compression as an in-depth resource, contrasting it with a previous video from Waves. I show helpful charts and graphs that explain audio concepts like downward and upward compression.
