Workshop perfect audio for voice-overs

As a voice-over you need a good home studio. With the right microphone, software and audio gear. And a recording room with good acoustics. If you have all that, the next step is to know how to edit your own voice recordings. In addition, the equipment must be properly set up so that your voice sounds great on every recording.

In this workshop you will get help with all of this, so you can get the most out of your studio and make great voice recordings!

The workshop will be given by Gijs Friesen. For the past 20 years he has worked as an audio engineer and sound designer for numerous commercials, movie trailers, web videos and (broadcast) music projects. He has supervised a lot of voice recordings and was involved as audio specialist at Voicebooking for a few years. In short: the right guy to take your studio to the next level! 🙂
