5 Tips For Recording VoiceoversMar 24th, 2012 | By James Lewin | Category: Audio Podcasting, Podcasting
- Banish (computers) to a separate room or to a specially designed cupboard.
- The room needs to be as dead as possible, especially at mid and high frequencies.
- Don’t record in front of a table. The reflections off the table will colour the sound. Radio broadcasters use special ‘acoustic’ tables which are acoustically transparent.
- Make sure the page turns in the script are placed so that the VO artist doesn’t have to turn the page in the middle of a line.
- Make sure the VO artist has a glass of fresh still water to keep everything lubricated and sometimes an apple can help to reduce mouth clicks that won’t go away with a drink.
Most of these seem obvious, but you still hear plenty of podcasts that could benefit from them.
