When I first dipped my toe into the world of voice over, I wondered what type of equipment that I would need. Because I am by no means an expert on sound equipment, there are a few basics that I needed to learn if I was going to create a home studio.

Some improvisation may be necessary, and you might need to scrounge around for materials that you have in your house when it comes to sound dampening, but the basics are 1) a good, portable microphone, 2) a preamp/interface, 3) a CPU (either a tablet or laptop, loaded with appropriate sound recording software, i.e. Audacity), 4) mic stand, and 5) sound dampening equipment.

The following article is a unique story about the set-up that Dan Friedman took with him when going on vacation:
