Got Gear?

If there’s one thing voice talent like to talk about aside from voice acting, it’s their recording studio, equipment and software.
And, if there’s one thing many talent enjoy hearing of aside from the art and business of voice acting, it’s learning about the different kinds of microphones, software packages, preamps, mixers and so on it’s how they work and if they are a good investment.
