  • MAY BE WHEN I GET SOMETIME I WILL SHOW EVERYBODY MY STUDIO VIA THE WEBCAM SO YOU CAN SEE WHAT I USE AND YOU CAN DEVELOP YOUR OWN STUDIO FOR WHAT WILL WORK FOR YOU.

  • ROSS IT DOES NOT HAVE TO BE EXPENSIVE. IF YOU HAVE A COMPUTER THAT IS A GREAT START. IF YOU ARE WORKING AT THE RADIO STATION THEN UTILIZE YOUR RESOURCE. CHECK WITH SOMEONE IN PRODUCTION AND SEE IF THEY WILL MAKE YOU A COPY OF THE AUDIO EDITING PROGRAM USE TO PRODUCE COMMERCIALS. IF NOT ...CHECK AND SEE WHAT THE COST OF COOL EDIT OR ADOBE AUDITION COST. USE GOOGLE. ANY STORE THAT SELLS MUSIC EQUIPMENT LIKE GUITAR CENTER OR SAMS MUSIC CAN BE A GREAT PLACE TO START TO FIND GEAR AND MICROPHONES. VU HAS A PAGE THAT WILL HELP YOU WITH FINDING GEAR FOR BUILDING A STUDIO. STICKAM IS A GREAT TOOL IN MY OPINION THAT CAN BE JUST AS GOOD AS ISDN LINES OR LOOK INTO GETTING A PHONE PATCH WHICH IS A LITTLE MORE INEXPENSIVE. JKAUDIO.COM IS GOOD PLACE TO FIND A HYBRID PHONE PATCH. THE COST REALLY DEPENDS ON WHAT YOU ARE REALLY WILLING TO SPEND BASED UPON WHERE YOU ARE FINANCIALLY AND WHAT WILL WORK FOR YOU BEST TO GET THE BEST DEMO POSSIBLE OUT TO YOUR CLIENTS. THE MIC I USE IS A AKG PERCEPTION 100. GREAT WARM MIC. TO HEAR THE QUALITY CHECK OUT MY DEMOS ON MY PAGE. IT IS NOT A BAD MIC CONSIDERING I SPENT ABOUT $100 FOR IT. I HOPE I HELPED A LITTLE.

  • Well from what I've heard you have to buy alot of equipment for an at home studio. But Im not 100% sure on what all it was.
  • T-Storm,

    You said it right....period. I wonder if anyone has invested in a home studio. How much did it cost? What equipment do you have? Using ISDN or Source connect? I need to start doing some more research on this. I have access to the studio at the radio station where I work weekends, but I need to start my own studio. Let's hear your thoughts.
  • lol I would like to agree with like everything THOMAS has just said. :D Thanks for Joi for starting this lovely stream. xD I've only been in this business for 1-2 years now and I still have alot to learn. Maybe soon we can all work on a project together. That would be awesome
  • FIRST I WOULD LIKE TO SAY HELLO AND THANK YOU TO JOI FOR STARTING THIS WONDERFUL PLATFORM. I WOULD LIKE TO START OF BY SAYING THAT WE ARE ALL NEW TO THIS BUSINESS COMPARED TO THE THOUSANDS OF VO ACTORS THAT HAVE BEEN AT THIS CRAFT 10 TO 20 YRS PLUS. I AGREE WITH BILL IN THAT WE CAN NOT WAIT FOR THE AUDITION OR THE CLIENT TO COME TO US BECAUSE THAT PATH IS SOMETIMES TOO COMPLEX AND TOO CROWED TO THE POINT THAT WE MAY OR MAY NOT BE HEARD. MAKE YOUR OWN PATH AS A VO ACTOR BY APROACHING THE CLIENT YOURSELF AND SHOWING THEM WHAT YOU HAVE TO OFFER. I ENCOURAGE VO ACTORS TO PRACTICE AND PERFECT YOUR CRAFT BU STUDYING THE INDUSTRY AND READING ALL TYPES OF COPY THAT CALL UPON CERTAIN TYPES OF INTERPRETATIONS WHETHER ITS COMEDY, DRAMA, COMMERCIAL, OR TRAILERS...PRACTICE, PRACTICE,PRACTICE. DONT BE DISCOURAGED IF YOU DONT GET THE DREAM JOB YOU WANT AFTER AUDITIONING BECAUSE WE HAVE TO REMEMBER THAT THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE ARE GOING AFTER THAT ONE GIG. WE WOULD GO CRAZY TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHY WE DID NOT BOOK A JOB ESPECIALLY WHEN WE FEEL THAT WE NAILED THAT AUDITION OR WE KNEW THAT WE WERE RIGHT FOR THAT GIG. DO THE AUDITION AND FORGET ABOUT IT. MAKE YOUR OWN WAY TO PROMOTING YOUR VOICE AND BOOKING YOURSELF FOR JOBS. AN AGENT IS NOT GOING TO PUSH YOU LIKE YOU PUSH YOURSELF SO DO NOT RELY ON THEM TO FIGHT FOR YOU. I COULD GO ON AN ON BUT I WILL BRING IT TO THIS FINAL CLOSE. PLEASE VO FRIENDS WHEN WE CRTIQUE EACH OTHER LETS BE HONEST WITH EACH OTHER SO WE CAN IMPROVE OUR CRAFT OR MAINTAIN IN OUR SKILL LEVEL WHERE WE ARE. LETS NOT SELL DREAMS BUT LETS BE HELPFUL TO ONE ANOTHER SO THAT WE CAN BE THE BEST THAT WE CAN BE IN THIS CAREER. THANK YOU.
