V/O Equipment & Supplies

~ Some of the equipment and supplies I use in my Home Studio & while traveling ~

Do your research and purchase whatever you like.  Lots of options.
This page shows what I use.

This portable recording booth is a must for recording on the road and in your home studio.
A client asked me to record some pickups from a previously recorded V/O.
I was on a business trip and my hotel room was noisy.  What a nightmare!
I purchased this booth as soon as I returned home.
It comes with a case and is easy to take on trips and also use at home.

The SM7B has been updated from earlier models with an improved bracket design that offers greater stability. In addition to its standard windscreen, it also includes the A7WS windscreen for close-talk applications.

    Hi Diane:

    I am starting up a VO business, and wanted to know your feelings about HlH’s Porta Booth Pro. I do not have the correct space for a studio, and I am trying too, to be budget conscious at this point. My intention would be to use the above as a primary home studio. I imagine sound treatment behind the voice actor, can add to even better sound than what this normally can do by itself( which seems pretty good. Is this your only home studio for VO?
    Any thoughts about Vocal Booth to Go, and their VOMO booth, which would be something similar?
    I appreciate your taking the time to respond.
    Thanks.

      Hey Bruce:

      I would also recommend getting some cheap moving blankets to insulate your space.
      You can buy them at a lot of places online.
      Amazon, Lowe’s Walmart, etc.
