Voiceover techniques

Postby TheAmazingTodd1 » Sat Jan 18, 2020 6:36 pm

I have a question about voiceover techniques. I've never really done much of anything with voiceover work, however I am exploring starting a Youtube channel that would be heavily using voiceover. I've got two other people that want to work on it with me, and we want to be able to record live commentary over footage together using three microphones--one for each individual. Do I need to get a mixer for that? What is the best technique to use in order to make it happen?

yes, you need a mixer and some interface to record the sound, or an interface with mic preamps so you plug the mics straight to it.

Might be worth looking at one of the podcast solutions as well - something like a Rodecaster Pro might meet your needs and has a very modest learning curve.
