Create your dream work-from-home routine
Gillian and I pick up our conversation about studio sounds with the idea that microphones are microscopes. They will detect all the good (and bad) sounds in your space. Once you get that ideal sound...it's time to work on your routine. Having amazing microphones, interfaces, and gear will make your voice sparkle and shine, but your workflow will get you in the door quickly & efficiently. Tech tools like a programmable mouse, keyboard, super quick computer, and clean digital space can save you a ton of time, which matters when you're an entrepreneur like me!
"Your microphone is only as good as your workflow!" - Tom
Tom & Gillian's Workflow Life Savers
For anyone who works at a computer, having a great mouse is essential. Gillian reaches for the Kensington Expert Wireless Trackball mouse. It has large programmable buttons and ergonomic design to help with wrist fatigue while increasing workflow speed. I just purchased (and am loving) the Logitech M650 which comes in 2 sizes + sells styles for right and left handed users. The rollerball is a life saver while working in Audition all day. I used it so much that I wore it out entirely on my previous mouse.
Starting with a great initial mic sound makes all the other work simple.
