This week on the Cabana, I’m talking about the importance of “rising above the noise”.  I don’t mean audio noise (although, you should always deliver audio that is free of noise…but that’s a subject for a different day). 😉  I’m speaking about the noise in our own heads and the noise that comes from others. It’s important to not let insecurities or negativity get in the way of our success.  This is one of the top things I see that holds talent back from reaching their potential. This week, let’s discuss the Zen of rising above the static and achieving our goals!

**VOCALBOOTH ( I have been using his Vocalbooth soundbooth for nineteen years.  I was one of the first voice talent to use one of their fine booths, and can’t say enough good things about the function, quality and support.  Their new designs and function puts them in a class of their own. They craft bespoke sounds booth that look, feel and perform better than booths costing quite a bit more.  If you’re looking for a soundbooth, then shoot me an email and let me know what questions you have. These guys make an epic product and know what VO talent need!

**UNIVERSAL AUDIO ( I’m happy to welcome Universal Audio onboard as a sponsor.  The Universal Audio name is legendary in the recording industry.  For over sixty years, UA has been pioneering iconic recording studio gear.  Among their other great products, the Apollo line of audio interfaces is spot on for voiceover talent.  These units are equally at home in a recording studio, as they are as part of a voiceover talent’s portable “road rig”.  This product is unique, in that its plugins make it possible to emulate the sound of a long list of iconic analog gear…making it possible to free up rack space and really bring your mic to life!
