Mobile Recording Adventures
Back in June, while visiting my native Connecticut for a doctor’s appointment, I had the rare opportunity to audition from inside a very hot car. This was my first mobile recording adventure on wheels – my initial experience recording inside a car, as I’m normally in the city and use the subway for transportation. But after my appointment, a few projects arrived in my inbox with important deadlines. I figured: why not test out my current set-up. The video above showcases the recording rig, though not the actual recording in process. I know – I’m such a tease!
While mobile recording for voice over is common in our industry, this particular set-up is different. I normally record in a closet or somewhere extra cozy and confined. However, the vehicle acoustics here, while not the greatest, did produce very acceptable results. Unfortunately, I can’t post the audition out of respect to my agents and the client.
Sitting comfortably in the driver’s seat, I’m equipped with a microphone resting on top of a steering wheel. Without my usual trusty pop filter, I am far enough away that I don’t have to worry about and popped p’s or hard consonants distorting the audio.
Thanks for watching! And if you have any questions, please let me know!
