VO To-Go: Prentice is Now a Traveling Act

This time a week ago, Nick and I were coming home from a family vacation to St. Augustine, Florida, and a little getaway for our seventh wedding anniversary. I didn’t want to miss out on a week of work, so for the first time ever, I decided invite my equipment along! Now I can have my VO to-go, not just dine-in only! Hooray!

This is how I packed my equipment! Lol.

At first I was looking to purchase a travel setup. I researched and talked to colleagues about their favorite choices. It ends-up lots of the better USB mics are BFFs with Mac products, and I wanted to make sure whatever I bought would be good buddies with my PC and Adobe Audition. After being mansplained at a local shop, I asked myself “Prentice, why are you trying to buy a travel setup, when you can travel with your current digs?” To which I replied “Dude, you’re right, Prentice. We are staying in the same condo we’ve visited many times, and there is a perfect space for me to treat and use. Besides, Mr. Prentice and I are driving down, and devoting one small suitcase to my work won’t be a problem.” Then I added “GOOD THINKING, PRENTICE! We can shop online later for a second setup. No need to stress myself out over this right now.” I have great conversations with myself.

Anyways, it ended up being a slow week (I only did paid work that just needed me to record and send. I didn’t want to commit to auditions because they can be a time suck.), and I was kinda okay with that. As much as I adore busy, profitable weeks, slow ones happen from time to time, and if the stars are going to align and make a not busy workweek while I’m out of town, cool. I still got to test the waters of traveling VO and then hop in the waters of a pool and the ocean.

Running logoIn case that wasn’t being productive enough, I decided to join my Voxy Ladies in their Pretty in Pink Virtual Marathon for Cancer Research! I was able to knock out about half my 26.2 miles while doing beach walks and exploring historic St. Augustine! Way to multitask, Prentice!

I do realize someday I will want to invest into a smaller, simpler setup that reduces the risk of my at-home equipment getting messed-up or lost on an airplane or in a cramped packing space. Do you have a travel setup? What do you like best? I’d love to hear more about your favorite equipment for doing voice work on the go!
