- Recording a Demo
Before offering your services as a professional, how about you practice first and record a good demo? It all starts with buying a good microphone or if you’re at the recording studio already then it all starts with adjusting the position of the microphone. Place the microphone not too far and not too close but at least 6 to 12 inches from your mouth so you could record a good and clear voice. Then record a really good demo while keeping in mind that this could be the key to unlock all your dreams.
- Avoid any distractions
Always maintain your focus if you’re recording your voice and don’t get caught up with any sort of distractions while you’re still recording your voice. A good thing would be to remove all the distractions if possible before you plan to record your voice.
- Use headphones to listen to the audio playback
Using headphones is a good idea as they help you listen to your narrations clearly and focus on your mistakes so there’s no room for doubts left for later.
- Re-read the script
It’s always a good idea to re-read the script and mark any changes required such as marking the level of pitch according to your voice so you could remember afterward or making sure that you don’t stumble during your recording session. You can place your script on a music stand while recording too.
- Drink liquids
Drink water or tea to keep your vocals hydrated. Don’t drink carbonated drinks or coffee before practicing or recording your voice. Make sure that you keep the liquids at room temperature.
