Total beginner

I have a Scarlett Solo Pack for voice over purposes. Do I need speakers? All I want to do is create voice recordings using a mic and a focusrite audio interface. If I do need speakers where do they get plugged in?


Do I need speakers?

No. You can do this with good quality headphones and they can plug into the Solo.

I have made good quality recordings without listening, but those were stressy-emergency conditions and not recommended.

Unless you’re going to get someone else to master your voice track, you are going to need to listen critically somewhere in the process.

Hollywood is in love with Sony MDR 7506 headphones for critical listening. That’s them on David Greene’s head in NPR-West studios.


The Scarlett Studio Pack comes with headphones. Which one have you got?
