I use this myself for my own Voice-Over Career

If you’ve ever been told ‘you’ve got a great voice’ or, you have been thinking of a change in career, then this world of voice actors is wide open! However, not everyone would suit this career. After all, you will need to have a little confidence, creativity and good articulation to fit the bill. And if you find you’re sitting on the fence in such an area then, even if you do decide to ‘give it a crack’ and it doesn’t work out for you, at least you would not have shelled out thousands of dollars, only to waste it on dead ends.

The key thing to always bear in mind with voice acting and audio works is to fight the chief enemy of recordings… and that is ‘noise’. Electronic hum, fan noise, bumps, bangs, bad weather, echos and lawnmowers… whatever. So, I’ve developed a small recording space that gives you plenty of room to gesture wildly within, as you articulate that most dramatic audio book of Movie Trailer.
