Home Studio

Home Studio 101 Class

Get the tools to build a home studio, engineer, & audition

Having a home studio at their disposal is rapidly becoming one of the most powerful weapons in the arsenal of any voiceover talent who wishes to stay competitive.

In the past, you would have used giant reels of tape and edited with razor blades, but fortunately today you don't need to build an addition onto your house or take out a second mortgage to equip yourself with a studio capable of providing auditions, or even broadcast quality audio.

We will ease the learning curve and help you write the shopping list for your studio. Be able to market yourself anywhere in the world and deliver your voice to your clients without leaving the comforts of home. Working in your pajamas is optional.

Questions are welcomed during the class.
