What Microphone Should I Use As A Beginner

Check out my new Fiverr Elite Group here. I would love to help you grow your Fiverr business.

Many people view microphones as a "Who Has The Bigger One" type deal. If my microphone is more expensive, that means I am a better voice actor. The reality is, none of that is true.

First and foremost, your talent and skill have nothing to do with your microphone. That is why some people seem to get lots of work on standard equipment, and others can't get a job with costly equipment.

But in this episode, I talk about why you should consider your space when just starting and considering to buy a microphone.

If you have a loud space, and you can't do anything else about the extra noise, picking a less sensitive microphone will be critical to your success.

On the other hand, if you have space with a great deal of reverb, and through your best efforts, still struggle to get rid of it, a microphone with an extremely narrow polar pattern with be vital to your success in that location.

Knowing the space you have, and the ability to cancel out noise and reverb is the key to getting the right microphone at any voice over level.

Also, the best part about understanding your needs is price. If you know precisely the type of polar pattern you need and what kind of condenser or dynamic mic for noise, you can save a lot of money focusing on those.

I hope you enjoy this episode, and don't forget about my new Fiverr Elite Group that meets every Saturday. I am excited to help people grow their Fiverr businesses.
