Hi Joshua. Good interview with Erik.
I was wondering, what mic are you using during the interview? It sounds different than your intro. just curious… (I’m looking into this market)
Thanks, Alex. I’m currently using a Logitech USB headset H390. It does okay, but I think it would be better to get an Audio Technica ATR2100. The Logitech cost me about $40, but the ATR2100 is under $35 and it’s a better mic (from what I’ve heard from Dave Jackson, Daniel J. Lewis, and (I think) Cliff Ravenscraft). Plus, the ATR2100 can get a windscreen (the foam thing that covers the mic) to reduce background noise and attach a pop filter.
It’s my plan to get the ATR2100 with a windscreen and pop filter. Should be less than $50 total, but the quality should be much better. I’ll probably just use the Logitech just for listening.
I got my intro from a gig on http://www.Fiverr.com. You can search the sight for different Narration and voice-over gigs, but the one I did is at http://fiverr.com/djricsantos/do-a-professional-voice-over-up-to-60-seconds-in-length.
I was planning on putting together a Resources page with this (and other) information, so thanks for helping me get it started 🙂
Thanks for the info and I’m glad I got you to start!
