My Studio Equipment
After years of working with analog mixers and reel-to-reel tape decks, I now rely on a Sennheiser MD4210 highly directional microphone and Adobe Audition recording/editing software.
FYI: With the exception of my samples of live radio work and TV documentary narrations, all audio demos were produced in my home studio.
In addition to the various types of recording jobs I have handled over the years, it also is important to note that I have a strong work ethic, high standards for accuracy, and long experience at working under deadline pressure.
