A really good investment: WindTech PopGard 2000.
I’ve been wanting to replace my crappy flexible pop filter for quite some time, but I guess I’ve either been lazy or didn’t think there was really a better option available. I did some research and read a lot of reviews before choosing the PopGard 2000. The main benefit was not having that gigantic round disc in my face. Also, not having to constantly adjust the flexible stem if (when) I bumped it.
This new pop filter is pretty cool because it mounts softly (quietly) to the microphone chassis and wraps around it pretty tight… so if you’re like me, it increases the visibility of your scripts on the monitor in front of you. I used to have to read sideways across the mic to see my monitor, and I noticed that my Neumann TLM-103 has a much richer sound if you speak directly into it – not across it. As a bonus, I can move in about 3 inches closer to the mic for more personal reads.
Oh yeah… It does a great job stopping plosives (P’s and B’s)! $32 well spent. 🙂
Yet another voice-over with my friends at F# Studios. They must do ALL of the Spotify ads! 😉
So, Skittles has this website where you can adjust how much of each music genre you like, and they’ll design a custom playlist for you. Pretty cool, eh? Check it out by clicking the image below.
“Mix The Rainbow”
I just finished up a voice-over for Emirates NBD Bank – for a fitness app on Apple Watch (
and possibly Android as well?). I’m not sure of all the details and haven’t seen the finished product video yet, but when I get a copy or a link to it, I’ll be sure to update this post. 😉
UPDATE 12/7/15: I have a video link. (My voice-over is at the end)

“Introducing the first fitness based savings account designed for Apple Watch”
I haven’t heard the finished audio for this voice-over yet. But I’ll upload it if I ever get a copy.
Update: Not positive this is the one they went with (they had me read it 12 different ways).
