Voiceovers are essential to any video production. They work great for narration, tutorials, or even replacing audio in post-production. Did you know Premiere Pro actually has a feature to create a voiceover from within the program itself?
It’s a really simple to use system, and great for producing good quality recordings. I might suggest some additional software/equipment if you are more on the pro side as it isn’t too feature rich. But if your goal is to just create a voiceover as simply as possible, then this is the tool for you.
