SANTA MONICA, Calif., Nov. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Voiceover actor Joe Cipriano, with credits including CBS, Fox, The Simpsons & Two and a Half Men, is one of the most well known and respected voices in the industry today. Though he may not be a household name for most, there's a good chance you'd recognize his voice from any one of the countless projects he's been involved in throughout his accomplished career. Cipriano and the voiceover community were recently in the spotlight with the release of "In A World" – a critically acclaimed film by Lake Bell with a title inspired by the introductory words made famous by voiceover legend Don LaFontaine.

In addition to his consistent work as the voice for several major TV networks and series, Cipriano stays busy with a never-ending stream of one-off jobs from all over the world, including everything from TV Promos, Radio Imaging, Game Shows to Feature Film Trailers. "I never know what will come my way any given day," Cipriano says. "Each morning, projects are sent to me and I typically record in my home studio. Sessions are done live via ISDN or recorded and delivered by internet-based file sharing services." It's not uncommon for voiceover actors like Joe to be asked to accept and complete a project in less then an hour. For this reason, the industry is incredibly competitive and everything must happen quickly and in a moment's notice. "It can become an issue when I'm away from my home studio and a call comes in from my agent saying that a client needs a pickup line immediately."

Cipriano recently discovered a way to record to his iPhone with the same quality as he would have in a professional recording studio. Using his iPhone, Apple GarageBand recording software and Apogee MiC, Cipriano is able to effortlessly record voiceovers from anywhere including the backseat of his car and deliver the tracks to his clients all over the world seconds later, without ever needing to step foot in a recording studio. 

"People ask me all the time 'what do you do when you're away from the studio and something pops up that you have to record?'" Cipriano says. "It does happen, and luckily I have MiC with me in the car wherever I go. So if something does come up, and I have to pick up a line, all I have to do is pull out MiC from the glovebox, I plug it into my iPhone and record it, then I send it as an email."

Apogee MiC is a professional quality condenser microphone that connects digitally to iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or Mac and was built upon Apogee's 30-year reputation for innovating some of the highest quality digital audio technology for the recording industry. While categorized as a USB microphone, Apogee's MiC defies the negative stereotypes of most in this class, which often fall short when it comes to the sound quality needed for professional voiceover work. Apogee MiC paired with iPhone and GarageBand means that Cipriano no longer has to turn down work just because he can't make it to a recording studio in time.
