Studio Equipment

When you hire me to record a voiceover, there are a few ways that we can work together to deliver the audio.

The preferred way (also the easiest, quickest and most cost-effective) is for me to take your brief (record a few dummy lines if required), and then self-record and self-direct from my personal studio. Afterwards, I will send you the edited files via WeTransfer – a free service that allows users to send and receive large attachments. This is my most common way of working.

The next way is for me record the script while you listen on SkypeZoom, Source Connect NowCleanfeed, SessionLinkPro or Whereby, to edit the audio afterwards, and to send you the file(s) via WeTransfer.

If you wish, you can also edit the raw recording yourself, or pass it to a producer or editor.

The third way is to record from another nearby professional voiceover studio (my second studio, if you will) – which comes with additional ISDN, Source Connect Now and ipDTL connections.

The final way is to record at a studio of your choice. This method is potentially the most time-consuming and expensive for both the artist and the client, due to the additional costs involved in getting to and from, and hiring, an external studio. If you’re looking for a quick turnaround, the ‘preferred way‘ from my personal studio really is the best.
