In a studio situation, about 50% relative humidity is considered ideal for gear and instruments and comfortable for humans. 40% relative humidity is ideal for storing magnetic tapes. But how do you maintain that in a small home studio?

And what about dust? It's the nemesis of ALL gear, computers, Pre's, you name it. So what can you do about that, whilst maintaining a space that's as quiet as possible?

This week, the tea...

They may be relatively new, but the skill, knowledge, and tradition live on at Austrian Audio, backed by over 350 years of cumulative engineering experience. The product is quite simply stunning, and this week we unbox a few of their products to tak...

However, a groundbreaking new company in the Audio Processing lane has managed to harness its power, and accelerate audio manipulation for audio producers, voice over artists and music producers alike, without the need for expensive, walled-garden DSP hardware.

Jonathon Rowden joins us from t...

Zoom has released the F3, a 2 channel recorder aimed at the videographer or VO artist who are required to record things with a large dynamic range. It also implies that setting correct levels is a thing of the past...

But Robert has a few issues, surprise surprise, but what's the consensus?

Universal Audio has come out swinging, taking a swipe at Sure's podcasting (and Broadcast) favourite the SM7. The SD-1 is clearly designed to be as close as it can to the original thing. But does it hold up?

What started out as a discussion about the best way to format your audition, became a bit of an insight into how the other end approach Auditioning the Auditions. 

What makes the studio or casting director turn off? What might be the technical differences between getting and NOT getting the job, even if you DO have the best read? And why do Robbo and Robert disagree on one very big point?

You spend a small fortune on your mic and your pre, but what about that piece of shielded metal that connects the two. Does the price make a difference? Is making your own necessarily better than buying one? If you buy one what should you look for?

This weeks show deep dives into the world of cables, hopefully, we shed some light on what and what NOT to do!!

We have heard a few horror stories recently of clients insisting that voice-over artists have a particular piece of gear/software in their studio, regardless of whether or not it is necessary. 

Should a client dictate what you have in your room? Where do you draw the line? 

We get into the nitty-gritty and tell a few tales along the way!

So the other day we get this excitied email from George. "I've got a topic for the show, let's play 'Guess the mic'"!!

He went on to tell us about his client who had just purchased a mic that was under $500, but that we would never guess what it was. While we did manage to guess, it certainly wasn't the mic that ANYONE expected. Can you guess what it was??

Sometimes the hardest thing to get your head around when you're contemplating building a home studio is just WHERE to put it? In the house, or a dedicated space somewhere else. Do you BUILD a Space or use an existing one? We had an email from a long time listener towards the end of last year regarding this, so we decided to turn it into an episode.

Towards the end of last year, Source Elements launched online training courses for their Source Connect Standard, Source Connect Pro and Source Connect Pro X products.

Andrew, George and Robbo have taken the Source Connect Standard course and compared notes on things they had learned, what they thought of the course and more.

Plus, in their usual way got sidetracked onto online courses that AREN'T particularly as trustworthy as...

If you haven't heard of Mary Lynn Wissner, you had better get Googling. She's at the top of the heap of Voice Casting Agents in the US, and this week she's back on the Pro Audio Suite.

She's back to make some noise about something she's been hearing in too many Auditions lately and it's something that makes her reach for the "NEXT" button every time. Plus she spills the beans on a relative treasure t...

    Sympathy Pains

    Hosted by Laura Beil (Dr. Death, Bad Batch), Sympathy Pains is a six-part series from Neon Hum Media and iHeartRadio. For 20 years, Sarah Delashmit told people around her that she had cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other illnesses. She used a wheelchair and posted selfies from a hospital bed. She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con. Sympathy was both her great need and her powerful weapon. But unlike most scams, she didn’t want people’s money. She was after something far more valuable.
