Once upon a time when a client wanted to listen in to a recording session from my studio, it involved a phone call, where the client would listen while I recorded with my headphones pressing against my earbuds. The client could not hear the audio chain and just had to trust I would send them a good file. (Don’t I look trustworthy?)
Side note: When I first started in VO, I once had a session where I did not have my audio chain hooked up properly and had to re-record the whole session while trying to piece together the direction the client gave me on the phone. This is known as a #VOFail
But this has all changed in the past year…clients who aren’t using SourceConnect are now setting up Zoom sessions to listen to me record. The audio is better, but I’ve taken to using a Zoom background so they don’t see the tight space I record in. Based on where my laptop is, it sometimes looks like my head has been absorbed into the background.
At least the audio sounds good. That’s what they’re paying me for.
