I do spoken word and voiceover work. I am learning how to do the recording aspects myself with a small project studio at home. I am very interested in what everyone with experience in that area thinks about: 1. microphone selection (is the senn 416 the one?) 2. microphone placement 3. EQ, Compression, etc while tracking... opinions. 4. Editing, processing, and mastering those files. 5. Equipment ideas (outboard, software) 6. Talent preparation. Thank you in advance for any and all that share their expertise regarding this post.
