Is bad sound recording quality distracting from your valuable content? This is your opportunity to improve!

This short, beginner-friendly course teaches you the ins and outs of creating a studio and broadcast quality voice recording in the space of a few hours. It is presented in a practical and relevant manner, using recording equipment that cost just a few hundred dollars. You won't need a voice booth, a special recording studio, or a sound engineer.

The only prerequisite is to follow all the instructions meticulously and avoid any errors at any point during the recording process.

But first we need to clarify what actually constitutes a professional recording because you can only reach a goal that you know. And once you know, recording voice will become very easy.

The voice recording must be

  • 1. Dry (so no ambience effects like echo or reverberation)
  • 2. Loud (clearly audible, in the foreground)
  • 3. Transparent (clear and distinct)
  • 4. Clean (free of noise and distortion)

Basically you only need 3 components: A microphone, studio software and a person who knows what he is doing. This is the person you will become shortly.

What you can expect:

  • 1. To learn the shortest way to a professional voice recording
  • 2. to get answers to all your questions almost immediately inside the course
  • 3. that I will help you to reach your goal to create a professional voice recording

What you can not expect:

  • 1. Hearing me talking much, saying nothing
  • 2. Telling you something in "hours" when I only need minutes!
Stop doing bad recordings and enrol now!

Ich bin professioneller Opernsänger, Jazz- und Popsänger, Komponist, Sprecher & Stimmenimitator, Autor, Audio- und Video-Produzent im eigenen Tonstudio und unter eigenem Label und Verlag in Nidderau bei Frankfurt am Main.

Als Opernsänger singe ich seit 1999 im Chor der Oper Frankfurt am Main. 2007 war ich im Chor der Festspiele Bayreuth und im Februar 2015 als Solist und Produzent auf Platz 4 der britischen iTunes-Charts "Top-Songs Opera" mit der Arie "Als Büblein klein an der Mutterbrust".

Seit 2007 arbeite ich auch professioneller Sprecher. Vorwiegend mache ich Video-Voiceover und arbeite als Hörbuch-Sprecher, z.B. für Zyx-Records. Als Synchronsprecher habe ich u.a. 2015 den chinesischen Kaiser in "Brotherhood of Blades" synchronisiert.

Als Komponist und Musik-Produzent habe ich u.a. für ZDF (TV-Doku "37 Grad - Verliebt in die Liebe"), ARD (TV-Doku "Schwarze Schafe) komponiert, schreibe aber auch gerne Songs für mich selbst.

Seit 2013 beschäftige ich mich auch mit der Produktion von Imagefilmen, Produkt- und Erklärvideos.


I am a professional opera singer, jazz and pop singer, composer, speaker and voice imitator,author, audio producer and video producer, working in my own sound studio under my own label and with my own publishing company.

I have 30 years' worth of experience as a music producer and 20 years of experience as an opera singer.

I have composed soundtracks for the German television channels ARD and ZDF, performed at the Frankfurt Opera and the Bayreuth Festival, as well as charting at number 4 in “Top Songs Opera" of the British ITunes Charts with my singing and my music production.

I currently work as a german audiobook narrator, a composer and producer for Zyx Records in Germany , as well as a voice-over artist.

I dubbed the chinese emperor in the cinema movie "Brotherhood of Blades" in 2015 in german language.
