Home Studio Master Testimonials:

By Lisa Rice

Six years ago, I attended a voiceover event to learn more about the business side of voiceover. Little did I know the most valuable thing I would leave with that weekend wasn’t what I paid for.  It would be a chance meeting with another voiceover talent who would become an iron-sharpens-iron kind of friend professionally.Dan Lenard’s his name and helping others with their home recording studios is his game. Well, actually, voiceover is too, but that didn’t rhyme quite as well.Dan and I both began working in radio when grease pencils, editing blocks and razor blades adorned production rooms.  We also had about the same amount of hair on our heads back then. However, that’s where the similarities end.Dan immerses himself in everything audio. From the studio tools used to record it to the studio space used to record it in, he’s mastered all things pertaining to sound. He’s studied the idiosyncrasies of signal flow, sound isolation and sample rates. To put it in karate terms, Dan Lenard has a 10th degree black belt and mine’s just pretty and colorful.So when an “audio glitch monster” rears its ugly head, one of the first things I do is ask myself, “What would Dan do?”  And if that doesn’t help, I pose another question, “Why don’t you CALL Dan?”That’s when I begin to look intelligent and so will you.Home Studio Master to our rescue! Standing ready with a precise diagnosis in easy-to-understand terms. Keeping audio glitch monsters at bay often before they’ve had a chance to knock on our door.

Simply put, Dan Lenard helps us do what we do best…voiceover. Seek his advice and you’ll enter your studio with optimism. Consult with him and you’ll stand behind your microphone with greater confidence. Listen to him and your customers will receive pristine, dry audio. The wav, aiff and mp3 files they download will originate from a private, professional recording studio. YOUR studio.

Think of it! Mountains of positive goodness for your voiceover career thanks to the help of Dan Lenard. Your Home Studio Master and mine.

Dan gives those new to the field of voice-acting laser focused information so they can begin recording quality sounding audio from their own home studio, as cost effectively as possible. He cuts through the “noise” and gives you just the “signal” you need to get started. Beyond that he’s a stand-up guy, a man of his word, and backs his advice with years of real-world voice-acting-from-home experience!” September 3, 2010

“Dan was one of our presenters at VOICE 2010 and has been part of the conference since its beginnings in 2007. His knowledge of home studio design, construction, equipment, and the overall technology of home-based recording is exceptional. There are only a handful of people in the voiceover world who have the ability to communicate even the most complex home studio concepts with relative ease – and Dan is one of them. I highly recommend him.

I was TOTALLY lost with all of the technical stuff at building and operating a home studio until I “met” Dan in a skype class. He taught me in a very patient and “easy-to-understand” manner how to use my software, and how to sound-proof my closet. Then I was off and “talking”. I now audition and record jobs from my home studio every day. Thanks Dan!” November 8, 2010
