The Voice Over Recording Specialists
Most productions at some stage involve the recording of at least one voice artist. Our sound studios are designed and equipped specifically to undertake this sort of work to the highest standard. Our talented team are well versed in these subtle arts, as they are in Post-Production.
In our sound studios we record ''wild'' (not to picture) or picture-sync voice-overs, narrations and links. Also roundtable radio programmes, podcasts and much more - see the long list below.
Our voice booths vary in size which determines the number of voice artists that can be accommodated simultaneously. When booking, always specify the number of voices that will be recorded together.
Depending on client requirements we may deliver ''as recorded'' - or edited, or mixed with music and sound effects. Some voices can produce quite noticeable mouth clicks and slaps, some voices breathe very heavily. It may be that you'll want the files cleaned-up after the recording. We can do that if enough time is booked - or it may have to be the next day, or you may be able to that yourself.
Using ISDN or Source Connect we can connect to regional or non-UK studios and, if required, achieve picture-synch if they have the right equipment. This system is used frequently.
For many years we've also offered services for Casting, Voice Direction and Project Management.
