Studio One Know-How: Voiceovers is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 18 .
Rated 4.5 out of 5 by from Very useful for non-musical voice recordings Interesting to use plugins on input and then Bus channels keeping the raw and processed audio. Comping Room tone on silent passages, using shortcuts and making templates for frequent use make it so much easier to obtain quality results in record time. Recommended for podcaster, VO artists DJ voice overs users.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Finally ready to go. I'm relatively new to voiceover and I'm not a sound engineer. Honestly, I was getting frustrated with Studio One after switching from Audacity. So much so, I took a month off from recording because I was so annoyed. Stepping away from the editing process was probably the best thing I did. I started recording again last night and everything is coming easier now. I dumbed down the process for myself, but I want to become more comfortable processing the signal chain.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Simple and clear Marcus is always clear and thorough. This is an excellent starting point for narrators who try to do their own editing in Studio One. Audio book narration is becoming a booming industry and this should be a must watch video for those home narrators who do not hire out post production.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from This is a very good intro to setting up your DAW/Computer to do voice overs This helped a lot for setting up a smooth, quick workflow. Great if you will be doing any type of voice overs repetitively.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from exactly what a voice over needs although you need be familiar with studio one (I recommend taking the course, Studio one 4 "explained" before taking this course), the video covers everything a voiceover artist needs to set up his session, tracks, recordings and templates. Marcus is just great.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by from I gathered quite a few I'm a voiceover artist who swung by to get up to speed on what's new in Studio One 4, spotted this course and decided to watch it to see if I was missing a trick. I was! For me, it was all about the signal chain plugins. Seeing where Marcus puts his and what he sets them at was really useful for me. I'll be making some tweaks to my standard VO template now, I think, to see how it goes. Learned about the free VU meter plugin too. Who knew?! I really dig having a bouncing red needle and a big 0 - much easier for me to see my levels and know I'm not clipping. I don't understand why the VU meter doesn't just come built in to S1 from the get go if it's free? Seems a bit daft to me that it doesn't. Anyway, duly downloaded. Thanks for the heads up! But I digress. Should you do this course? You'll need to have a handle on the basics of the S1 GUI for sure before you do. So if you're just starting out in VO, I'd say do the main Studio One courses first, then do this.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Ice Breaker This is an EXCELLENT primer for those folks who are starting to use S1 as their go-to DAW for VO. I have had years of experience with S1, and STILL picked up some valuable tips.

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by from Some mixing/production basics applied to voice over This is not a tutorial on using Studio One, the user should have a rough understanding of what to find where. Unfortunately, a user who knows how to work with layers (the presenter is using layers to "comp" a final mix based on voice track and ambiance) will know what a compressor, EQ or noise reduction plugin is used for, so the actual tips in this tutorial aren't showing anything new to those users. While I personally appreciate the "compressed at the source" style of talking the presenter is exercising - along with the fact that he does quite some pre-EQing and pre-compression on his recording pipeline - this makes the course lack tips for some of the more pressing issues like dealing with very unsteady source material, evening out a voice track that is not smooth and perfect to begin with. In other words: The presenter works with "perfect" input material, giving it some final touch by adding standard EQ, compression and editing. Which is fine for a novice user to see, but does not help with a "real world scenario". The novice user might be somewhat lost in applying the tools, though. Personally, I find the lack of dynamics in the presenter's narration tiring, but that really, really is a personal thing and has nothing to do with quality, professionalism or pizza.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by from Studio One Voiceovers The presenter is very knowledgeable and it the material is quite helpful. The problem is that the pace is way to fast for a beginner of which I am. It is obvious that he is experienced in Studio One and I think he assumes the user is as well. No very useful to a beginning user of Studio One.
