A great many of us who do voiceover work these days have a studio at home. It’s part of keeping up with the massive changes that have been sweeping through not only our world, but the culture as a whole. But, putting a computer, microphone and a few other pieces of audio gear in there does not automatically turn a bedroom into a professional studio. While you don’t necessarily have to hire a world class acoustician, it’s a good idea to know where some of the sonic challenges are in your room.
Which leads me to Hometracked, a fabulous blog aimed mainly at musicians; but there are many valuable lessons and suggestions for those of us who use our home studios for voiceover work. For example, I highly recommend (downloadable audio samples included) this excellent post that will show you some very interesting things about your studio’s sonic characteristics.
