I am planning to do video podcast lessons, similar to CGP Grey production but on a different topic. What amazes me in CGP Grey is the quality and clarity of the voice.
I am sure there are different factors contributing to the final result
- Initially good voice
- Good microphone
- Postproduction tricks
As far as I was able to gather about the last two points, he uses a Rode Podcaster, and Final Cut Pro X. I am planning to buy the same equipment. For the first point I personally start with a big disadvantage, as my voice is very nasal. I know some tips from a singer friend of mine, but I doubt I can make it better.
My question is: given the above HW/SW makeup, how does one improve a nasal voice to have the best possible quality? Microphone setup and positioning, magic FCP options, filtering, special software to add to the mix?
Please keep into account I am completely clueless about the topic.
