What type of microphone is best for voice overs?
For voice over work, a large diaphragm condenser microphone is usually considered the best type. These microphones have a smooth, natural sound and are able to capture the nuances and subtlety of the voice. A condenser microphone typically provides a more detailed and accurate recording compared to dynamic microphones, making it the preferred choice for voice over work. Some popular large diaphragm condenser microphones for voice overs include the Rode NT1-A, Audio-Technica AT2020, and the Neumann TLM 103.
Why is It important to use a pop filter when recording vocals and voice overs?
The use of a pop filter is important when recording vocals and voice overs because it helps to reduce the impact of plosive sounds (sounds produced by sudden air release) such as "p" and "b" that can cause audio distortion or overloading of the microphone. Pop filters work by diffusing the airflow and spreading it out, reducing the sudden burst of air that can cause unwanted audio artifacts. This helps to create a cleaner and clearer recording, which is essential for professional-quality results.
