    Hi Saverio,

    Thank you for reaching out to us on here! :)

    Hope you had a good Christmas!

    We normally recommend that voice talent invest in good equipment, such as a good XLR microphone, audio interface, and a good acoustic treated recording space - as this will not only be beneficial on our platform but for voice over work elsewhere too.

    However, understandably the cost starts to all add up and depending on your budget can become costly.
    Therefore, starting out using a USB mic may be more beneficial at this time, then once the money starts generating, you could buy the other gear mentioned above. Do know, the quality isn't as good or clear as an actual XLR condenser microphone, but they are good to start off with.
    The main thing to worry about would be your recording setup area, as you mentioned.
    Panel form anti echoes are good, but I find they are best to be placed at the end of your recording setup.

    For instance, clothes, towels, blankets, etc, do wonders to help soundproof your area.

    Here is a cost-effective way to treat your recording space, which I hope will give you some inspiration:

    I'm not sure if you have already seen this too, but we also have an article on here for helping people with acoustic treatment:

    Hope you have a happy new year!

    Kind regards,
