Shure and The VoiceOver Network, announce a collaboration to support the evolving voiceover industry and empowering extraordinary talent with the right professional audio solutions.

Education is an important part of The VoiceOver Network in helping and strengthen the industry’s knowledge. Whatever stage of their career, there is always more to learn from voiceover skills to home-studio recording techniques. Shure and The VoiceOver Network will help to bring the industry together by offering the best advice, training, events and on audio best practice within a friendly and supportive environment.

The voiceover industry is evolving and with changes in technology it can be confusing with so much information, how do you know what is good and what is not? The partnership between Shure & The VoiceOver Network is dedicated to providing resources to the people at the leading edge of voiceover production. The collaboration between the two industry leaders include:

Educational Programmes & Workshops,  Support on how to equip a home studio and online course content will run regularly on both sites during the year long partnership.

Social Media Giveaways & Competitions, The collaboration will kickstart with social media giveaway to win an MV7 and a 3h online workshop.

The VoiceOver Network began in July 2013 when Rachael Naylor started organising small meetups with a few other voiceover friends. “I started out as a voiceover artist over 12 years ago. Like a lot of people, I felt very comfortable in front of the microphone and have always enjoyed talking, so being a voiceover artist was the perfect career for me. I love my job and I think we have a fantastic industry full of wonderful people, but which microphones and how to get the best from their equipment is not something we specialise in. It’s often the make or break of a recording”

For podcasters, vocalists, professional-level audio production and to answer the increasing demand for audio streaming and recording solutions at home, in the studio, or anywhere, Shure recently unveiled the MV7 Podcast Microphone – the Company’s first hybrid XLR/USB microphone. Ideal for both entry level and experienced creators, the MV7’s intuitive design makes it incredibly user friendly and simple to set up and control.

“Audio as a medium, for home recording and podcasts is on the rise”, explains Daniel Wieland, Senior Manager Retail Marketing at Shure. “Harnessing the Company’s engineering prowess that developed its iconic SM7B Vocal Microphone—a legend in the recording, live streaming, and podcasting sectors—the MV7 dynamic microphone delivers versatility and control, flexible connectivity options, and high-quality audio in a sleek, compact design. This plays right into the hands of the VoiceOver network who want a reliable product, that easy and versatile enough to configure for a range of applications.”

“At Shure, we’re keen to work with those who strive for perfection in their work and by supporting the Voice Over Network in the UK, we can put all our Training, Education and knowledge of more than 95 years of audio equipment to good work. We are pleased to announce this long-term partnership and the engagement it brings with this very talented community.”
