His clients especially like his conversational style. Here is what they have to say about him.
Studio Equipment Setup
In Susheel’s acoustically treated home studio, a comprehensive voiceover recording chain is employed to guarantee the highest quality of audio. He primarily uses the AT4040, a large diaphragm studio microphone renowned for its superior performance in voiceover recording. This microphone is his go-to equipment in the studio. He also utilizes the AT815b, a shotgun microphone, for on-location voice recording. The AT815b is particularly handy in filtering out potentially distracting noises when recording in less-than-optimal locations.
Susheel’s recording setup includes the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 3rd Gen, an audio interface that connects the microphones to the computer. The Sony MDR-7506 headphones, which connect to this audio interface, allow him to monitor the audio during recording. For recording and editing, he employs Adobe Audition, a digital audio workstation (DAW). Within Adobe Audition, he uses various plugins to fine-tune and master the audio, producing high-quality WAV files that are ready for broadcast use.
- Microphones: Audio Technica AT4040 & AT815b microphones
- Audio Interface: Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 3rd Gen
- Headphones: Sony MDR-7506 Studio Monitor Headphones
- DAW: Adobe Audition
- Mastering Plugins: Focusrite, iZotope Rx8, and Waves plugins, among others
Maintaining a standardised recording and processing chain is a hallmark of Susheel’s professionalism as a Voice Over Artist. This ensures that his output remains consistent and always conforms to high quality-standards. His raw recordings exhibit a noise floor of -60dBFS or better.
Mastered recordings, on the other hand, come with an impressive -85dBFS or better noise floor and are typically mastered to a -3 dBFS peak. This guarantees that clients receive broadcast-quality audio with every project. Susheel is also flexible to cater to different standards upon clients’ requests.
The delivery of the mastered voice-over output is made via uncompressed WAV files in 48Khz or 44.1 Khz 24-bit. These files are delivered through convenient platforms such as Dropbox, WeTransfer, or Google Drive. Should clients have different requirements, Susheel encourages them to specify these beforehand, and he will be more than happy to accommodate.

How Everything Started
Susheel brings a varied set of skills with him when he voices a script… Before working as a voice over artist, he had worked in other creative fields. Here is an overview.
Susheel earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Visual Communication in 2003, from Loyola College, Chennai – one of the most prestigious colleges in the city. This exposed him to filmmaking and editing, although his chosen career was in Graphic design and advertising. Still, filmmaking had always been a part of his repertoire. Years later, in 2015, he transitioned his company to working on photography and filmmaking full-time.
So, in short, he has had experience with recording audio for commercial filmmaking projects as far back as 2013. But this also started him off on a dark path… It sparked an interest in microphones, recording audio, and an obsession with the Podcastage YouTube Channel because of the in-depth mic reviews that Bandrew makes.
In December 2019, he started a podcast (for fun) with a friend, resulting in a year-long endeavour during COVID lockdowns.
In late 2019, Susheel started working on his voice-over projects, starting with recording audiobook chapters at Librivox.org and finally taking on paid jobs from various platforms in early 2020. In 2022, after having developed a smooth voice over recording workflow, collaborated with hundreds of clients, satisfied all their requirements for two years, and become confident in his ability to deliver broadcast-quality audio time after time, he launched this website.
