For those of you who come by often enough to know that I haven’t posted in a long, long time – this may come as a shock – but I’m still here..
I’ve been buried in all sorts of projects – the new studio being one of them. It has the old studio beat hands down as far as toys and bells and whistles. One of the most exciting is a complete voice over workstation for my VO students with a mixer, microphone, headphones and a windows computer that is ProTools and Adobe Audition equipped. For years I had to try to explain all of the hands on technology that goes along with learning and performing in a home studio, and now my VO students can sit down at a workstation and go through the motions for real as they practice their technique. It’s a real score for the students and allows the training to become so much more in depth. I have wanted it for a long time and finally it has arrived.
Otherwise the construction is about 75 percent done and all of the equipment wiring has yet to begin. The new booth hasn’t been built yet and a series of doors will be added in the near future. However all of the nice things like direct TV and a bunch of televisions make down time go a little better.
So – in short – we’re almost there and new students are starting to make their way by to check things out. We should be fully operational by March or April, but will be resuming classes in the new studio in a week or two. Pictures will be up on the boards soon…
