Equipment for your Home Studio


Here’s  your resource for excellent home studio recording equipment and supplies at great prices! A home studio for voiceover can be whatever you want it to be - from a simple setup in the corner of your living room, to a dedicated recording area in an extra bedroom or the garage. We encourage you to become familiar with some of the many options for home recording equipment before you spend your money. The equipment we recommend here is based on our knowledge and personal experience, and represents only a  small sampling of the equipment available.

We also offer a complete consultation service for determining your specific home studio equipment, installation, and training. You’ll find a thorough discussion of home studios in James Alburger’s Voice Actor’s Guide to Professional Home Recording E-book.

If you are a VoiceActing Academy Conductor’s Club member, you can take advantage of our home studio consulting services at a discount, as well as receive numerous other member benefits.

Our recommended basic configuration consists of the following items:
(prices given here are estimates.)

MXL-990  Microphone - $79.99

USB Interface:
Behringer Q802 USB - $79.99 (excellent for desktop or portable laptop. Clean sound with very good headphone monitoring. This USB interface requires A/C power)

Behringer 1204 USB .$149.99 (great for home studio, but not easily portable)

Copy Stand:
Manhasset  Music Stand - $35.99

Mic Stand (w/backup dynamic mic):
