If you are serious about your voice over career, it is important to have a working knowledge of the tools available for voice over actors. For instance, the choice of microphone is crucial for quality audio recording.
However, before you jump into buying a microphone, it helps to do research on how microphones work, the reasons for acoustical treatment, and pretty much anything else that has to do with recording the human voice. You need to remember that the primary purpose of any high-quality recording is to re-create the reality of the moment in the most authentic and believable way possible. The simple fact is that the better the mic, the more authentic and accurate the audio recording will be. In fact, if quality was not a concern, we’d all still be using crystal or carbon microphones!
