Everything falls into place when you get a good sound at the source.
Equalisation becomes a choice rather than a necessity. You no longer have to rely on software to make your voice over listenable. Instead, you can use tools such as EQ and compression to chisel a voice recording to perfection.
There are many factors that decide how a voiceover will sound. The room. The microphone. The character of the voice. But perhaps the most important is microphone position.
Changing the placement of the microphone can make a voice sound warmer, clearer, more powerful, less sibilant—whatever you want to achieve. Yet so many people just throw a microphone up haphazardly and start recording.
By the end of this video tutorial you will know where to start, what to avoid, and how to get the best possible sound out of the equipment that you already have.
