I'm in the earliest stages of starting a 2nd career as a voice professional, and will be working from my home office.
The work involves bidding on, and accepting voice-over jobs from commercial, corp, and private sector clients; the work could entail doing web-page greetings, product descriptions, instruction manuals, event narrations, etc.
I'll be sending protected samples of my voice as resumes, in order to win jobs, and I don't want to use a paying studio. I've explored a few web pages, but have no clue what to purchase first, or any idea of exactly what I need. (Digital voice recorders, microphones, mixers, etc.)
1. What Software Do I need?
2. What Hardware Do I need?
3. What should I know about sending the high-quality recordings to potential employers?
4. Are there recording professionals in this forum who can be hired, or consulted?
5. Are their other resources available for operating a recording studio from my home/pc?
