You’ll need a professional-grade recording studio costing less than $500. Listed below are the tools and items you’ll need to get started.


You’ll need a desktop or laptop computer with Apple or Windows software. Unfortunately, tablets are not sufficient.


You’ll need a microphone and an audio interface. The combined cost should be around $400.

Audio Editing Software

Pro Tools “Intro” software is recommended. You can download this FREE SOFTWARE from You’ll also need an iLok Key for $49.95. Once you have this, you’ll be ready for the Studio Proficiency class.

Acoustic Treatment

A walk-in closet is a great place to get started. If you do not have one, we can brainstorm other affordable ideas to help you create an ideal environment.


You’ll need to be highly proficient in the use of a digital audio workstation (DAW) such as Audacity, Audition, Twisted Wave, or Pro Tools. If not, you will need to sign up for our “Studio Proficiency Class” taught by Allan Blackwell. Why? When you record broadcast quality audio on your DAW it’s just not as simple as “hit the button” and record. We’ll teach you the intricate details involved to make that happen so that the person on the other end will know immediately that you are a professional voice actor just by listening to the quality of your work.

Studio Proficiency Class

The overall premise of the class is to help you understand how to engineer your projects on your own. Becoming your own engineer is not as overwhelming as you may think. Allan prides himself on making sure every student “gets it”. 

 Bottom line: when your audition or project is sent for review, we want your potential client to think: “Nice work, sounds great!” and NOT “What were they thinking???” So, Let’s Begin!

Voice Over Coaching

What you will learn:

  • Deciding the Niche’ for Your First Demo – you’ll read at least a sixteen (16) eLearning, commercials, audiobooks, medical narration, and corporate scripts to help decide what that first demo niche’ should be. You can always do more demos later.
  • Text Analysis – 3 steps that you need to use for every script you will ever read.
  • I will ask you to be “uncomfortably slow” when reading scripts. It will improve your performance like nothing you could ever imagine and make you bookable.
  • Conversational Reads are incredibly challenging for most of us. I can show you in just a few minutes what it took me weeks to learn; how to create a true conversational read.
  • Ask yourself: Do you know people who know people who know people who can help bring you business sooner rather than later? Let’s get that income moving.
  • I’ll help you discover your “Voice Age.” Physical age means nothing as a Voice Actor. Voice Age categories: teen, young adult, adult, middle-aged, or senior. And YES, you can audition for more than one “age” if your skills permit it.

I can coach on you virtually every niche’ out there except for animation and video games. They are not a part of my wheelhouse, also I only do demos in English.


Included with the Demo Package but it can also be purchased separately for $297.
