Video – Setting up for recording on a budget

During out Introduction to Voice Over workshops we often talk about setting up to record yourself at home. This is great for practise when you’re just starting out but then for when you are ready for the world to hear your voice and start auditioning.

This can be quite a technical discussion and you will find varying opinions and recommendations on what you need to set yourself up for voice over recording at home. Honestly you can easily spend as much money as you have in your bank account in this area, but when you’re just starting out we suggest a low-budget setup is a more sensible option.

On that note Andy has put together a basic ‘Starter’s Kit’ for voice over. This includes:
Yeti Nano USB Microphone
Microphone Shock-mount and Pop Sock
Extended micro USB lead (10ft)
Microphone Stand
AKG K52 Closed Back Studio Headphones

Watch the video below as Andy takes you through the setup and, most importantly demonstrates how it all sounds.

This ‘Starter’s Kit’ costs LESS THAN $300 however it’s worth noting that you still need a room to record in (which may need acoustic treatment) plus you’ll need a computer for recording and editing.

If you are interested in getting one of these kits we have two available and ready to go.
