A lot of people ask about my mic setup here at Jon Carter Voice Overs and Megahertz Studios. That question, of course, does not warrant a simple answer.
The key thing is to make sure the mic you use fits your voice and fits your project. Here are some of the mics we currently use: Rode NT-1A, Sennheiser MKH-416, M-Audio Nova and the ever popular Neumann U-87. For processing we use gear Symmetrix, Great River, Valley Audio, Aphex, Empirical Labs and much more. We have two studios, so we have different setups used for different projects. For example, our main studio is used mostly for promo voice work. Our second (and smaller) studio is set up for a more natural (less processed sound). That is where the almighty U-87 resides.
We’ll be sharing more information on studio equipment in the upcoming weeks. Thanks so much for stopping by!
