"Based on the issues I heard in your Dad's audio sample he sent me, I am not sure that Ed's suggestion will make a noticeable difference. I still find Skype to be the best sounding and cost effective method to do a "phone patch" currently available.…"

"Soundforge is my favorite for voice-over actors on Windows. Fast to learn, powerful effects, easy interface.

As for Source Connect, read this."

"Twistedwave is like Sound Forge for a Mac, but easier to use and a better interface. Audacity can work but has some annoying user interface quirks and bugs."

"Dan, the app doesn't determine the sound quality, the mic does. Right now there's only one viable way to connect a studio mic to an iPhone.
Read my blog post to learn more and hear my audio sample."

"Yes, both ends need to have SC to use it, or you use an ISDN bridge to connect to studios that only have ISDN. The Autohybrid is one I've installed in many studios. You aren't going to do much better until you go to a digital hybrid, over $500 unit.…"

"You don't need a preamp separate from the one built into the Onyx 820i, the internal one is quite good. You've got a good start with that unit, it's one of my favorites.
I am available at vostudiotech.com if you would like consulting on proper setup…"

"Send me a clip of what you're getting from your NT1a, I'll help you determine if it is really a mic you need, or room acoustic treatment, or better mic placement.

"The Rode NTG3 is an excellent alternative to the 416, many are finding them a very good substitute. You'll save $500 and be quite happy with the results."

  • just wanted to say hi...keep doing great things!!! so excited to get into the SAG booths you've built...smile!!!!
  • George it was a pleasure to meet you, you are a wealth of information, and your baby daughter is so precious. Enjoy fatherhood every minute you get, my baby is now in high school and I dread the day she will decide to fly solo.

    I will email you separately before Tuesday to discuss your request for VOICE 2010.
  • Man, I would love to hear that. Can't you post some MP3s with Joe on NT2-A/M5?

    /Morten
  • I haven't tried that combo yet, Morten. I should bring a NT2-A to Joe Cipriano's place sometime and try it on his M5. I am sure it will be ultra-clean with very wide response.
  • Hi George,

    Thanks for the add :-)

    I was wondering if you ever tried the RØDE NT2-A on an Avalon M5? I'm the happy owner of a NT2-A (som much mic for so little money) - and I'm thinking about getting the Avalon M5.

    What do you think? Do we have a match?

    /Morten
  • Hi George, hope you're well! I put a message on the forum and John Taylor told me to get in touch with you cos you might be able to point me to the right direction. I'd like to go on a sound engineering course in Los Angeles but I can only find long courses (9 months/2 years) on the internet. Do you know if there's a shorter course, ie 6 weeks to 2 months? I'm interested in a complete audio eng course not just for my voice overs, I'd like to become a sound whiz! many thanks for your help! Laura
  • George that was you who did the "tech/studio workshop at Voice" wasn't it? I was there for that.
  • That was really fast...Thanks sooo much George! ~Janice
  • Hey George: Congratulations on the new baby! Joe Cipriano recommended I contact you after I asked him the following questions:

    "After viewing your studio video I'm just wondering if you would mind providing any suggestions regarding the specs for a window we're getting ready to put into my second studio my husband is currently building for me? All the soundproofing in and he hung the sheet rock over the weekend. Now our next step is getting the right glass for the 5x3 foot window and getting the angle right on the interior pane. It is it just basic tempered glass, and what if any specific thickness? We also need to know how far apart and at what angle to space the glass for optimal soundproofing results. Would you mind sharing what you know regarding what you did for the window in your studio?"

    When things slow down for you, would you mind pointing us in the right direction? The rest of our soundproofing is rock solid, and we sure don't want to compromise that by what we do with the glass. Thanks so much! ~Janice
  • Hi George,

    I hope all is well. I just saw the video for Joe's new studio diggs! Very kewl! Hey, I sent you a Friend Invite since I had to REload my profile here at VU.com, so when you have a sec, just hit the ole 'accept' button again for me!! All the best my friend!! --Jay Sawyer
