Gear It Up

I use varying types of gear and have listed some below with Amazon affiliate links for you to start your own career as a voice artist and producer. I only recommend things I would use and equipment ranges from low cost to more expensive, suiting your budget no matter what. Check out my blog page to find articles on various products I've outlined here.


If your voice is your bread and butter, than microphones are the serving platters. It can be tough to make a decision on which microphone to choose; keep in mind that you may try several before deciding on your favorites. Pick what works for your budget and move forward from there. A USB microphone will not need an additional preamp, while an XLR microphone will need a balanced XLR cable with a preamp to power it. If you hate your computer's sound card and have the cash, go with an XLR microphone setup.

If you choose to get an XLR input microphone like the Rode NT1 for example you'll need a preamp to give it fandom power. A microphone preamp is a device that amplifies your microphone’s signal. Microphones generally have a very low, unusable output. Plugging them into a microphone preamp allows you to bring that level up to a usable (line) level. Preamps will allow you to connect your XLR dynamic and/or condenser microphone to your computer and record your sound through a balanced system you can reliably trust.

Porta-Booth Pro - Your Recording Studio At Home and on the Road

Not long ago the vast majority of professional voice over sessions were recorded in full-fledged audio studios and auditions at casting directors and agent's offices. Today, the home studio revolution has rendered that modus operandi all but extinct. A professional sounding recording space for finished work AND auditions is a requisite tool of the voiceover trade. If money and space are no object building or buying a human sized sound booth is ideal, but impractical and unaffordable for most performers. And when you are on-the-road hauling along acoustic materials or "portable" booths that weigh 50 to several hundred pounds is a daunting proposition.

But getting great audio in acoustically untreated spaces got a lot easier with the Porta-Booth Pro (a large, robust audio booth that serves as a permanent and portable recording solution.) The Pro accommodates larger and longer microphones, lengthy scripts and e-reading devices. Now in its second generation - with countless improvements - the seven pound Porta-Booth Pro is the best-selling portable recording booth worldwide.

This booth is a wonderful back up option for those of you who already have a recording space or need one and want an all-in-one solution. It is my side kick and continues to be a useful backup tool in my toolbox.

Seal-a-Meal Manual Vacuum Sealer System & Starter Bags

Avoid waste and stretch your food dollar by keeping meats and other foods safe from freezer burn with the Seal-a-Meal Vacuum Sealing System.

Buy in bulk or on sale and store extra food for later, without fear of spoilage or freezer burn! I use this frequently as I food shop and it makes bulk buying worth it at my local grocery store. I’ve had this system for years and it functions well.

1: Line Up Bag to Sealing Strip. Place the items you want to seal into bag, leaving at least 3 inches between the contents and the top of the bag to allow for bag contraction.

2: Lock Cover in Place. Open the lid and place the open end of the bag down into the Drip Tray. Then close lid.

3: Press Firmly on the Lid. Press down firmly on the lid with both hands and hold until the Hands-Free indicator Light illuminates. It's now safe to remove your hands from the lid. The unit will continue to vacuum and seal the bag.

• THE FRESH SOLUTION FOR FOOD STORAGE: Vacuum sealing removes all the air from specially designed bags, then uses heat to create a secure seal, ensuring food not only takes up less space in the fridge, freezer, or pantry, but also stays fresh longer compared to non-vacuum storage methods

• PRESERVES TASTE & NUTRIENTS: Confidently store fresh fruits, vegetables, cuts of meat, fish, and more! When air is removed from the bag and finished with an airtight vacuum seal, food is protected from the deteriorating effects of air, which causes freezer burn and spoilage

Microsoft LifeChat LX-3000 Headset

The LX-3000 has a decent microphone; it's one of the few headsets where the boom is positioned on the left/FRONT of your mouth for the best quality. The recording quality on this device is natural and present, delivering a warmer sound. You may use this headset to do basic voiceovers for instructional videos, YouTube, podcasts, etc., without sacrificing too much audio quality for a low price. That's a rarity for headsets, which tend to have awful microphones.

This plug-and-play headset works with a PC and mac; the drivers install automatically. The Noise Floor on this headset is lower than most and won't amplify your background noise when you are not speaking. The noise cancelation is great and does not digitally distort sound.

The LX-3000 also has nice big earpieces, which can be good if you're seeking a bit of isolation from your environment for listening.

Amazingly enough, the controller for this headset is a tactile smiley face. The tactile volume buttons (the eyes) and the mute button (the smile) can easily be distinguished. When muted, the controller for the headset smiley face lights up giving visual confirmation that you can run that coffee grinder in the background without disturbing your conference mates. This headset is in my tool box and I frequently use it for client conference calls, informal table reads, and online classes; it is durable and has surved me well.
