New York–June 21, 2011: In her ascent towards becoming a top voiceover artist, Joan Baker’s success has taken root on two basic principles: “know your voice” and “choose the right equipment.” After getting her start by doing cartoon character voices on cable television, Baker’s talent was quickly spotted by several top voiceover agencies, giving her a platform from which to drive her own success and become aligned with the right tools of the trade. One her first decisions was to use Neumann microphones.

Since then, Baker has built her career not only on doing traditional voiceover work for clients like CNN, the Tribeca Film Festival and The Biography Channel, but her career has blossomed in other areas such as narrating audio-books and teaching aspiring voiceover artists how to take the next step in their own careers. In her book, “Secrets of Voiceover Success” and as co-founder of the annual “That’s Voiceover” conference, Baker describes the importance of equipment selection and her own affinity with Neumann microphones. more

Ely, Minn. – June 8, 2011: On one frigid afternoon this past February, a crew from Classical Minnesota Public Radio (MPR) and the A cappella vocal group, Cantus, MPR’s 2010-2011 Artist-in-Residence, took a three-minute pitch black ride down to the 27th level of the Soudan Underground Mines to record a performance 2,341 feet below the surface. This audio and video venture — which highlights the most recent installment in Classical MPR’s Sonic Architecture series — relied on a pair of Sennheiser MKH 800s and Neumann KM 140 microphones to capture the performance and the natural acoustics of the cave.

The performance, which was produced into a video and radio piece using DTS Neural Sound, presented several challenges for Rob Byers, technical director at MPR. Byers had to select a range of gear that would perform in an unorthodox “one-take” environment. “There was no room for mistakes — we had to get in, record and get out,” he said. more
