Where you record is just as important as how you record. There you can learn from the pros. Visit a state-of-the art studio or look on-line before you create a space of your own. Audio isolation & padded or soft surfaces to minimize ambient noise & echo are important for both your auditions & the final recording. It's just as imperative that the room promotes creativity. Whether you prefer "zany ala Cummings" style or structured clean design, the right choice for your personality will make you competitive, comfortable & inspired.

Can you send audio to agents & clients in formats they require, like Aiff, WAV, or mp3? What type & brand of microphone best suits your voice? Which pro-quality recording apps can you afford?
