    Lili Wexu is a generous and talented actress, voice-over coach, and author. In Recording & Editing Voiceovers (Part II of her Get Clever About Voice Acting & Announcing series), Lili shares a wide range of technical knowledge that she has amassed over the course of years in the VO business. Lili’s sensitivity to the needs of her readers really comes to the fore in this book. She strikes the perfect balance in presenting technical information in a manner that is neither overwhelming nor condescending. With clear definitions and analogies to processes commonly used in our everyday lives, we gain understanding of the myriad aspects of VO recording – as well as an assuredness that the technical skills needed for success are within our grasp.

    As always, Lili takes care to highlight the different technical nuances encountered across genres and recording environments. An unexpected (for me) bonus are the sections that Lili devoted to managing the workflow (and the people) involved in creating a voice-over, from contract stipulations all the way through to the finished product. She also highlights how this may vary depending upon where the recording will be made and whether or not the session will be directed.

    Finally, Lili’s tips on preparation and studio etiquette are designed to enhance the likelihood that clients will want to work with us on future projects. Recording & Editing Voiceovers is a valuable resource that will make our recording lives easier and a great deal more pleasurable. For this, I am indebted to Lili Wexu and her presence in the VO industry.

    Voice Acting & Announcing Part II is a super clear breakdown of the technical aspects of getting started with the recording process and data management parts of voice acting. Lili explains the different file types, sample rates, and the reasons for them being requested. She makes suggestions on software and sound treatment for your space, and it’s all laid out in small, easily digested chunks.

    You’ll want to keep this as your reference manual as you get your home studio set up. It’s the perfect compliment to Part I and now I’m about to dive into Part III. If you’re serious about voice acting or if you simply want to find out if you’re ready to commit to voice acting, the bundle is the way to go. Money well spent.
