My padded cell
A bit about me. I'm half Spanish, and spent half my life in Spain. I now live in the Peak District town of Buxton, with my partner Simon and our supercharged daughter Eloise.
My professional background is in print media. I was a sub-editor for a newspaper in Spain until a couple of radio ads gave me my first taste of the voice over world. And I was hooked. Years of correcting copy, along with a passion for good grammar, means that attention to detail is also my thing.
Luckily for me (and my clients), as well as running his own business, Simon also happens to be an extremely talented muso and soundie with years of studio experience. He has taught me the ins and outs of audio production, and can never resist getting involved in my creative voice over projects.
I now spend most of my time in a small dark room. Talking. Alone.
So onto some techie stuff.
I spend much of my time in a small, dark, soundproofed room, talking into my mic.
I record in a dedicated voice over isolation booth, and use a Neumann TLM 103 condenser mic and a 24bit/96 KHz Focusrite preamp.
For editing and processing I have an iMac, running Adobe Audition and Steinburg Cubase. It's also powered up with Waves Audio plug-ins delivering exceptional sound quality, digital processing and clarity.
