Being known for his polished, resonant voice, Lyman has narrated the PBS series Frontline since its second season in 1984 and played William Tell in the action/adventure television series Crossbow.

VOBS TECH-TALK #48

VOBS TECH-TALK #48

January 10, 2021

Dan And George Love Talking About VO Tech!

On this weeks more info than you can handle Voice Over Body Shop TECH TALK#48 “The Guys” get down on the latest inside info on making the right decisions for your voiceover endeavors.

For instance:

Apollo and Big Sur (it unofficially works on M1 Mac)

Understanding why the M1 Mac is such a big deal for the world of computing and why I think it’s a “no brainer” for a VO studio even now more than ever

VO in the car?
a proper wireless headphone for voice work? Why bother? 

We also discuss the huge difference between recoding Music and recording voice over tracks. 

Plus your questions on “loopback” and “air” and a few questions on acoustics!

Where else can you get this kind of info? That’s right. Nowhere but here.
