Equipment and Software

The Best Recordings Require an Excellent Recording Environment and the Best Recording Equipment and Editing Software

I could be the most incredible voiceover talent in the world. Still, if my recording environment, the equipment I use to record my voice, or the software I use to edit the recording is below par I could not produce a final recording that would meet your exacting standard.

With that in mind, this is what I will use to complete your project:

Broadcast Quality Sound Booth

My sound booth was designed and constructed by Soluciones Acústicas, Mérida, Yucatan, Mexico.

The company originated in Mexico City and has been in business for over thirty years, providing high-quality acoustic solutions to various companies in Mexico, including HBO, EMI Records, and 3M. I consider myself extremely fortunate that they were available to help me construct my sound booth.

The booth has an internal measurement of 1.7 x 1.6 meters (67 x 63 inches) and the walls are constructed in four layers with a total overall thickness of over 10 centimeters (4 inches).
