I have started doing voice overs and I am very new to the industry and recording. I have started my set-up with a MBOX2, ProTools LE 7, and a AKG 451 mic. (The MBOX was a recommendation)

Everything works well but I'm not getting the depth to my voice that we get when recording in a commercial studio. Granted, the caliber of the equipment in the commercial studio is far superior to my small set-up (except for the mic, it is the same). Someone told me I should try a quality preamp between the mic and the MBOX.

The good news is that this is strictly for voice over, I don't have to worry about singing vocals or musical instruments.

Does anyone have any suggestions or preamp recommendations?

hye dagmur,

If i can give you an advice, it's to buy a good little preamp (stereo if it's posssible) with converters include because the LE hardware is definitly not the same as tdm. Let's look at apogee mini pre without usb option.
keep me posted

the Symetrix 528 is a well known preamp for music- and broadcast studios;,
it has a preamp with phantom, a de.esser, compressor and parametric eq,
it has a real powerful sound, you can get those typical fat and deep sounding radio commercial sounds from it when you push the settings,
it can get a bit agressive if you push it hard, but everything i've ever tracked with it cuts trough the mix like a knife trough butter

there are millions of choises but i compared this one with several other channel strips and preamps and like it,
you should be able to find one (second hand) for around €300
