To others, using Adobe Audition harkens back to radio, and ALL the voice-0verists I know never want to admit they were ever a DJ.
[BTW, I never understood that. Half of all VO’s seem to have come from radio, and we don’t mind making money off of radio spots, but we don’t want to admit that we were ever IN radio…Oh well]
In between ProTools and Audacity lies a vast expanse of available DAWs (Digital Audio Workstations). Maybe choosing a software program to record/process/edit is not as sexy of a choice as choosing a mic, it’s still pretty important. You’ve gotta live with that choice in very intimate ways…so, better to choose carefully.
The other day I was approached by Doug Beney, who has written a righteous article covering DAW choices (as well as other studio necessities). I agreed to publish a link to his resource. If you’re new to VO, it’ll be invaluable. If you’re a seasoned pro, you might find something you didn’t know about a competing product.
Here’s what Doug offered as an intro: “If you’re a complete beginner, this article will take you through the entire process of choosing the DAW that’s right for you. You’ll also learn what other equipment you’ll need, such as an audio interface, studio monitors, and software plugins. Whether you only need to do small little tweaks to your audio, edit an entire podcast, or produce your own music, the choices mentioned are up to the task!”
