Joe Cipriano relies on his Neumann U87…
Which microphone helps you to make your bread and butter?

A microphone for a voice actor is a very personal thing. For some, it’s like their baby while for others it’s more than that! As mentioned earlier in this post, voice talent Joe Cipriano prefers to use a Neumann U87, considered the king of microphones from one of the most respected companies in the tech universe for microphones. He pairs the Neumann with a microphone preamp called the Avalon M5.
When we record the VOX Talk Podcast, I use an iSight microphone by Apple. We bought it a couple of years ago for recording podcasts and find that it does the trick for shorter recordings to air on the website.
In a past episode of VOX Talk, Colin Campbell produced a generous piece about the difference between condenser microphones and dynamic microphones. Again, each talent will have their own preference between these two very different animals. I’m giving you an invitation to share your microphone preference here via comment on this post.
Which microphone do you record voice-overs with and why?
