The beauty of the voice-over profession or occupation makes it easy for the work to be done anywhere. For example, you can take your voice over work with you when vacationing with your family and it won’t reduce the quality time that you have planned to enjoy with your family. Many of voice over professionals do not see their work as a career, because it is similar to what you might do in your spare time.
It is possible to record and connect with your clients anywhere in the world, thanks to the advancement in technology. You can record and edit your work anywhere without booking a professional studio session. Anywhere can be converted to a studio for any travelling voice-over artist – hotel rooms, or the parking lot while in your car. You can take your recording studio with you anywhere you go because most clients are not necessarily interested in where you record the project.
Therefore, if you are planning to take an important trip to another city or country for a long weekend, there is no reason for you to give up those voiceover gigs.
What Should You Bring With You?
In as much as you want to get a smaller microphone that won’t take all the free space in your travelling bag, you also want to ensure that it is of high-quality. If you want to achieve crisp recordings, a good microphone is all you need.
An XLR to USB adapter will come handy as it will allow you to connect your microphone to your computer via USB (if you are not using a USB microphone).
Desktop Microphone Stand
This is another important device for a travel voiceover set up. You will need the stand to keep the microphone in place and to be able to record in the right position. With a good microphone stand, you will be able to achieve a clean and crisp recording.
Spending some time in the voiceover industry allows people to be aware of the various recording software that is available in the industry. There are well known specific software that are used for editing and recording.
Quality headphones will also be needed to get the actual quality of your recording. There are many headphones in the market, and any with solid reviews should do just fine. You might want to stick with the ones you already use at your home studio if you are trying to save cost.
Do I need the internet?
Internet is very essential. It enables you to communicate with your clients and send the finished work to them. Before you book for hotel accommodation ensure it has good internet service. Another way to solve the internet issue is to do some research about the hotel you will be staying while away. Read reviews about the quality of the internet.
