So here's where I'm supposed to tell you I have outrageous gear and studio facilities. Truth is, I have a home studio with a custom built vocal booth and it sounds real good in here. I love my mic, and record clean into my computer via an M-Track box, that feeds my Mac. I also use Skype and Source Connect Now to listen in on directed sessions.
I can even add sound effects, like kids jumping on the ceiling above my head while I'm recording. I LOVE that effect. Or my dog yawning and smacking her lips while in the middle of a soft passage. She likes to hang out when I record . . . and then usually right during a great read or while recording my podcast, she starts whining that she wants out. Since I built my booth though, that sound effects package has been eliminated from my offering.
Below, the equipment I use, which for the most part matters only to other guys in the business, so for them, here's what I use. Plus, it was part of the template for this website, so I used it. It was free!
Thats not me or my studio. Looks cool though!
I wish I had a band and ... a female lead vocalist
I use Source Connnect, Skype, Bodalgo call (like ISDN) and record in Logic Pro X and I can export into any file you need. And I do have an old Otari reel to reel, I never use it, but I have it. Old radio station keepsake
I use an Alto Professional ZMX 862, primarily for my podcasting purposes
I use an MXL built VO:1-A, it has the same specs as mics worth thousands of dollars just like a Neumann U 87. It's the best one I've owned, and a modded MXL mic that sounds like a Neumann U 47. I also have a classic RCA 44 C Ribbon Mic . Great for doing retro work or micing an acoustic guitar or a symphony . . .which I've never done, but I hear it works wonders. I did use it to record my Dad and his brother on a CD I made for them where they played acoustic guitar and fiddle and sang all at once.
I have no idea what this means. But I liked the icon knob and it moves and stuff. Maybe it's something to do with my podcast mixer and M-Audio interfaces I use. I have a guitar amp!
Mackie MR5 mk3 speakers, and Sony MDR V-600 studio headphones, and sometimes when I'm taking phone direction, I will put my Apple ear buds inside my headphone so I'll be wearing two pairs at once! That's just how I roll.
Mac, is there any other kind?
I have some guitars, two electric, two acoustic one of which is a 12 string donated to me by a friend who left for Finland and didn't want to pay to move two guitars. I don't use them for voiceover and has nothing to do with demos, but this was a cool title on this template page, I like instruments, and I didn't want to delete it. There are some songs I recorded in my studio on guitar, and some of those can be found on my MY TUNEs page.
