To Everest and Scotland

Today has been spent recording Oxford University Press / Bookworms audio books at Tom Dick and Debbie in Oxford. Two stories, one on Scotland and the other on Everest, read by two very good voice artists. Nice to be paid to have people read you stories!

I used AKG C414 B-XLS on both voices – not a particularly exciting sounding mic but it does the job. I often find it almost too sensitive for the job as you hear every little part of a persons mouth… jaw cracks, spit squelches, tongue slaps, and even nose whistles. I’d like to use a dynamic mic like an RE20 or SM7b sometime on a voice over – I’m sure there’d be less editing afterwards.
