Sound Advice

Recording Jingle Announcers by Ben McPeek

“When recording announcers while doing characters, I prefer to use the Neumann U87 because it’s a warmer sounding mic, recorded flat (no EQ), and I prefer the AKG 414 for recording announcer tags because it has more punch (also record flat). The reason for this is that it gives more definition between the body of the commercial and the tag (which usually contains the slogan and must stand out in the commercial).”

Ben McPeek – engineer, radio producer (Captain Audio).
