    Introduction

    A quick hello & welcome from Groove 3 educator, Chris Vandeviver.

    Recording Environment & Microphone Choice

    Your recording environment and microphone choice are most likely the two most important details of any voiceover recording session. In this video you'll explore how dramatic these choices can be for your voiceover recordings.

    Recording Levels

    Now that you've sorted out your environment and microphone choices, Chris teaches you about the recording level you should set for your session, which also extremely important to get right before you start recording.

    Microphone Technique

    Now we can turn your attention to your voice over performance! The dynamics, delivery, and even distance from the microphone can impact how your voiceovers come across. In this video Chris makes sure you're ready to hit record.

    Recording

    In this video, the rubber meets the road as Chris shows you how to lay down some voiceover tracks. You also get helpful suggestions and tips for optimizing your time in front of the microphone.

    Editing & Comping

    Once you've laid down some passes of your voiceovers, it's time to edit and compile the best take possible. In this video you'll explore cutting and pasting, shuffling regions, choosing your favorite takes, and maintaining natural continuity for the best outcome.

    Denoising

    Unless you're recording in the best studios, there's a good chance your space has some ambient background noise, like HVAC, traffic outside, or even preamp hiss. Here you'll dig into some popular 3rd party tools for reducing and cleaning up background noise from your track.

    Removing Plosives

    Plosives are bursts of air from your voiceover artist's mouth that literally hit the microphone capsule, usually from bard consonants such as "P" and "B" sounds. Plosives can be quite dramatic, so use either EQ or specialized plugins for managing plosives in your tracks. See how!

  • image description 6:07

    Removing Mouth Noises

    Mouth noises are some of the most insidious noises around, and some listeners have an almost allergic response to them! Due to a mouth that was a tad dry when recording, here we'll examine tools like DeClicking and Decrackling to eliminate this major listener offense.

  • image description 14:02

    EQing

    Now that you've edited and cleaned up our voiceover track of distracting sounds, it's time to mix. Any EQ will do, whether it be the one included in your DAW or 3rd party option. In this video watch how to bring the voiceover track to a tonally balanced place.

  • image description 9:37

    Compression & DeEssing

    Compression helps rein in the dynamics of your voiceover performances, while DeEssing controls aggressive "S", "T", and other sibilant sounds. In this video learn how to control the dynamics of your voiceover tracks.

  • image description 10:05

    Final Touches & Loudness

    Truth be told, all the plugins and processors we've examined through this course are the most important tools in your kit. But automation or level plugins can add that final polish, plus bring up the volume on your voiceovers to match streaming and broadcast standards. Watch how to do it!

  • image description 4:40

    Final Comparisons

    With the voiceover fully mixed, let's compare the before and after results of our work. In this video we'll compare before and after all our mix plugins, and also the before and after of our denoising, deplosives, and declicking.
