Voiceover Studio Woes
Praise <insert deity here>.
It was like it was meant to be!
My post from Monday about having reliable backup solutions only went and became a reality last night.
Now, I don’t normally work past 17:30 if I can help it (lazy, see), but a client was willing to throw some (decent!) money at me and since I’ll do anything for money* I said I’d help.
My Audient ID14 Audio Interface had gone pop which left me a bit in the lurch, to put it mildly.
HOWEVER, because I’m a well-prepared Boy Scout, sorry, Voiceover, I hunted out my backup Scarlett 2i2 audio interface (I say hunted, it is literally sat on my other desk powering my editing monitors, forgive the dramatics), plugged that in and was able to record within 5 mins.
Moral of the story?
Be prepared, and also make sure your primary audio interface is actually PLUGGED IN. Sigh. You wouldn’t think I was an IT Engineer for 16 years, would you?

AI-Generated image from the prompt: ‘A man with long hair, glasses and a short beard holding an XLR cable. He’s looking embarrassed.’ GOT YA, it doesn’t know what an XLR cable is. Stoopid AI! (I didn’t mean that Skynet, I only said it to look good for my peers!!)
I’m Mark, A British English voiceover and I forgot the cardinal rule of IT – is it plugged in? Help me over this embarrassment by hiring me and my now WORKING studio. firstname.lastname@example.org
