    Thanks for showcasing Dan's expertise in audio production! I recently received an autographed copy of his book from him and thoroughly enjoyed reading it from cover to cover. The clear, concise writing accompanied by pictures really enlightened me on the elusive and technical world of audio production concepts. His blog gives even more details for those that would like to follow him for further information! http://sound4vo.com

        Scotty built it with his Denebian Pherneptulizer.

        Lots of local studio experts advice, Dan's book, and Dan Lenard with the fine tuning advice. Still not completely done with it!

          I just tried to do two things, keep errant sound waves from hitting the mic, and keep my sound waves from bouncing all over,......aurilex foam, and several layers of hanging fabrics is all it took

          and it WORKS

              All good info here, I will pick up Dan's book as I have heard about it in a few areas in voice over work.
              I need some education on my end, coaching and marketing, anyone have thoughts on schools, ie: (Such-a-voice or voices for all etc.)?
