Howdy Folks!

Well, here it is, my first headlong dive into the Blogosphereteria.

"To all who come to this happy place: Welcome. The Voice Over Audio Blog is your blog....."  Oh wait.. that's the Disneyland dedication... (head smack)  Silly me. 

This should be more like it-

There is nothing more confusing than entering into field, such as Voice Over, and find yourself thrown headlong into a technology that you know very little, if any anything about.  Even those folks that come from radio, I find are full of misunderstandings and preconceived notions, as to what it takes to make a good audio recording. And what to do with it, once they get it. 

Here, I hope to present my years particle use, insights and understanding of audio recording, my knowledge of Voice Over studio design, along with bringing much of the confusing information together from other sources, and lay them out in simple, digestible and understandable chunks (with gravy).  Along some good old fashioned entertainment, and commentary when I can find it or muster it up. 

I will try to focus a great deal on acoustics, the most important and most confusing sciences of them all- in regards to recording.  I'll just point out that even NASA had a difficult time of interpreting information from a test that they had conducted almost twenty years ago.  So it's easy to understand that some Studio engineers don't understand how complex it really is, and how often they hand out poor, yet well intentioned advice.   Though I know many studio owners and engineers   that do hand out great information, but there is very little chance that you will ever meet these folks, because their studios are far too expensive for VO to be recorded in.

So, sit back and relax, and don't afraid to ask questions if you don't understand something.  I'm hear to help, and I don't bite. 

Be well, and enjoy,

Mike Sommer
