About This Course

Who this course is for:

  • Voice over artists
  • Anyone who wants to start a voice over career

What you’ll learn: 

  • How to quickly and easily improve your podcast, audiobook, voice overs or videos
  • Improve your technique for recording voice


  • A microphone and a stand

Get better at recording speech, dialog and voice overs at home. Without spending a fortune!

This really is a complete guide!

It’s easy for anyone to start recording at home with modern affordable equipment.

But there is a huge problem. Information is spread all over the internet and it’s hard to find good advice. There is a lack of awareness of the importance of high-quality audio.

The internet is full of podcasts, videos, and courses with awful sound quality. The speech is hard to understand and irritating to the ear. In some cases, it’s simply unintelligible!

Improve your technique for recording voice. It’s the easiest step to increase the quality of your product. Yet it is so often neglected!

Voice overs are often understandable but sound distant, thin or odd. This has a proven negative effect on the perception of your work. To give that premium feel, you need high-quality voice recordings.

Follow the simple steps outlined in this course. You will quickly and easily improve your podcast, audiobook, voice overs or videos. In fact, anything that includes spoken word or dialog can be improved without difficulty.

This will impress your current fans. Attract new customers. Increase sales, downloads or streams.

All you need is a microphone and a stand which can cost you as little as $40!

What’s Inside? You might be asking – what exactly are we going to cover in these lectures? And the answer is pretty much everything you need to know from square one:

  • Microphone Basics
  • The Human Voice
  • Mic Choice
  • Mic Placement
  • Recording Techniques
  • Room Acoustics
  • Acoustic Treatment
  • Sound Isolation
  • The Recording Process
  • DAWs and Software
  • Editing
  • Mixing
  • Compression
  • EQ
  • Noise Removal
  • and more!

The course is split into 6 easy to follow sections. It would only take you a few hours to speed through the lectures, but I advise you go through no more than two sections per sitting. There are tasks set out for you that you need to complete between sections so you’ll need a bit of time before moving on.

I highly recommend that you take notes during the course. This will help you to remember the key points.

I’ve worked in a range of recording studios, live venues and film sets as both a musician and sound technician. I have also worked in numerous large venues as an audio-visual engineer and lighting designer.

I’ve worked with (and been taught by) boom operators and sound recordists that have worked on large budget feature films (such as Pirates of the Caribbean, Clash of the Titans, Layer Cake, Shaun of the Dead, World War Z) and popular TV shows (such as Ricky Gervais’ Extras and Gavin & Stacey). They, in turn, learned from some of the top Hollywood sound guys and legends!

    Excellent Foundational Course


    I’ve been creating video tutorials for almost a year and the audio portion has been by far and away from the largest learning curve. I wish I had access to this course from the onset. I have, through this course, learned what I was doing right, doing wrong and what I can improve upon. Kudos to the instructor for creating a course that easy to understand and to implement!

    Very Thorough Technical Background


    I’m taking this course as I’m just starting out and I’ve learned so much about how to record in a way that will save me from having to spend the time of time editing. He teaches the necessary editing, settings and walks through three different software and shows how to use them.

    From a learning perspective, he was easy to listen to, kept the lessons in easy to consume chunks.
