TVA STUDIOS GEAR CHOICES
This selection of gear is the best currently on the market for Voice Over.
"If you can afford better, do it."
Townsend Labs Sphere L22 Microphone Modeling System
This is the microphone Brent uses daily for all of his clients. You could spend $10,000 on a collection on microphones. Or, just buy 1! NOTE: This microphone must pair with the APOLLO Interface found below.
Focal Listen Professional Closed-Back Headphones
Brent has owned many brands of headphones over the years but decided on 3 pairs of Focal Listen Pros for TVA studios. The comfort for long sessions and the transparency without coloration of sound is perfect for voice over work!
Sennhesier MKH 416 Shotgun Microphone
The industry Standard microphone in every Voice Over Studio in Los Angeles and New York. Great for Travel and provides awesome broadcast sound. A must own to work at the pro level. It doesn't look like much, but it's awesome.
Focal Shape Twin Dual Powered Studio Monitor
Brent has upgraded to the Focal Twins! Not only are they beautiful monitors but they are the same sound top producers in the industry are using. If you can't hear your voice the way the voice buyer hears your voice, you're not selling what you think you're selling. Make sense? Studio Monitors are a must!
Apollo Twin from Universal Audio
This thing has changed the game! No more bulk preamps or outboard gear. The UA Twin has an entire studio room in this travel sized unit. Brent uses this for major film campaigns and national network promo work. The stock plugins and a good mic are all you need to start or upgrade in the world of voice over.
