Studio Headphone Comparison

Isn't it lousy that we can't get hardware vendors to recognize and market to voice-actors exclusively?  I guess it's because they just don't think voice actors constitute a big enough market.  Instead we see all sorts of reviews for musicians, engineers, singers, studios, etc.That doesn't mean we...

Complete Zoom H6n Review

Complete Zoom H6n Review

Back at the end of the last decade, my initial search for a quality mobile recording device resulted in my purchase of the Zoom H4.  I loved that thing.  I'm sure many still use it.  It had some mic emulation modules that I thought were pretty cool.
