I’ve been asked this question now 5 times recently – at a meetup, at another meetup, on the phone and online.
Then, I got an email that asked: do I sit or stand when recording audiobooks?
I’m always interested when the universe starts asking me from various vectors.
At my home studio, at Penguin Random House or Outloud or other studios, wherever I can. If you think it makes a difference in your voice, you’re hearing things.
And you can stop right now if you’re going to send me indignant emails telling me how wrong I am.
It might make a difference if you’re a singer, and you’re demanding a whole lot more power than you’d normally speak with.

And if you go to a studio, and the mic is set up already at standing level, you don’t have to ask to have it moved.
(You won’t encounter that at an audiobook recording studio.)
But do yourself a favor.
If you feel like it, feel free to have a seat. Relax. Do great work.
Hope this helps.
