How to Get Great Voice Quality for the Voice Over of Your Online Course
Get a decent microphone
The ars technica (ATR2100 USB) / blue yeti is good. Most of condenser microphones will do.
You can record with a smartphone headset, but then make sure it does not scratch on your clothes.
Get the mic set up right
Distance from mouth: two fists next to each other is the best distance.
Get a pop filter
or some kind of wind shield / deadcat.
- No obligations (headspace)
- no people disturbing you
- Sit comfortably
Get a room with little echo and no background noise
Make a test recording and judge for yourself. Often a closed is good or a room with decoration on the walls, curtains etc. Blank concrete almost always gives an echo.
Record yourself a couple of times before
Make sure you don’t hurry
Make sure your sound levels are equal
