My home set-up for voice-overs 🎤

In this video, I share with you my super simple at home set up using my computer, Rode NT1A microphone, Kaotica eyeball, and Presonus audio interface // Easy, cheap and great quality 🤩


Bec Djapovic here where I make compelling content to help propel your business with creative words. So I just wanted to pop on and just show you this. This is the material that I use, the material, the equipment, the equipment that I use when I’m recording voice-overs.


And so I don’t have a fancy studio, shock disclaimer. There’s no studio that I’m using. It’s all in my bedroom cupboard. I’ve got a set up in my bedroom cupboard, I’ve got a mattress which acts as a buffer for the sound and I just think that this setup is great. The quality of work that comes through, these are fantastic. They’ve been used on radio stations on website explainer videos. So yeah, a variety of places on radio, et cetera.


So this is how I do it. I have this little box, it’s called an audio box and I plug in my microphone cord into these ones here. And this is my microphone. So what here is is called a chaotic, what here is called that speak properly. This here is called a chaotic eyeball. I got this online, it was about 200 bucks, I think it was. Okay. So it acts as a buffer for the sound. So this comes off and you’ve got a condenser mic in here. It’s a condenser. The mic is a Rode NT1 condenser mic. I got it in a kit. The kit cost about $300, I think when I first invested in it. And it’s a great mic. So it’s a condenser mic, which means it picks up the sound really from a lot of different spaces. It creates a really nice, nice sound.


And I’m no expert on sound design, but the advice that I’ve got from my friends who are experts is that it’s a great one to use for, for this situation. So also a great one for singing as well. So what I do is I just pop that into the hole there. This one’s been eaten a little bit because my son, that’s great perks of the job being a mother. And I connect this one to the audio box here. And this audio box is connected by a USB to my computer where I run a program to record the audio for what it, whatever it is that I am recording. So once that’s done, I use a software program to edit it and then create a file that the client needs it in and then upload that file via something like Hightail and the job is done.


So that’s just my really simple setup for voice-overs and for singing recording that I have at home in my cupboard. It, it, the startup costs was under $500. So I just think it’s a really great way to get started. If you’re interested in doing voice-overs or you’re interested in recording from home.
