Time to improve your room!

Wow! Thank you to everyone who shared the last episode. Also, thank you for all the new connections and great messages on LinkedIn. It makes me amazingly happy to hear that I’m actually helping you out and maybe helping you think differently about your approach as a DIY Narrator.

This week we’re going to get into one of those areas of narration that people seem to just plain ignore.

Your room.

Fixing your room isn’t that hard and is totally not optional. At least not if you want good quality audio.

Your room is the most important part of your audio quality. Hands down, no question about it. More important than the microphone, more important than the timbre of your voice.

More important than anything else.

Think about all the effort and care you put into each element of your eLearning.

Why not give that same care to the quality of your audio?

But don’t worry!

You don’t have to drop thousands of dollars on acoustic panels and foam to improve the sound of your room. You can do it with some basics that you probably have around the house, or by using one special place of your house that you most likely already have…

But that’s a super secret location that I reveal in the episode.

In this episode, I discuss:

  • A really great food analogy
  • A quick discussion on acoustic treatment vs soundproofing
  • Kiddie pools
  • Three approaches to knocking down echo in your recording space
  • A super secret location that you can use to record great audio
