Going into a voicing session with Sara, you always know you’ll come out with the voiceover you want.
I have a professional – and rather funky! – sound booth in my home studio, plenty big enough for one person to record and edit. I also have a second desk for recording and editing – and, as it is linked up to the booth, I can run studio hire sessions from it, utilising a talk back facility, and record audio from within the booth.
For when I’m travelling or setting up in different rooms/locations, I have a Studio Series Portable Vocal Booth Pro by Editor Keys. The portable set up allows me to travel anywhere in the world and record to a very high standard – then send the files to you via internet connection.
Microphones – I have an Audio Technica 4033asm Studio Capacitor Mic along with a Studio Series SL300 usb mic.
Software – I work with Adobe Audition which enables me to record, edit and produce high quality audio, be it for a single voice file or for mixing different tracks (including music, sound effects and multiple voices).
Isdn – for the isdn connection, I work with Audio TX Communicator. It offers broadcast quality audio transmission over ISDN, IP Networks and the internet using MPEG Layer 2, 3, G.722 and G.711.
Audio TX Communicator is a software-only ISDN audio codec, compatible with virtually all other ISDN codecs. Communicator can also send and receive live professional-quality audio over any IP network or the Internet. If you use IPDTL, you can also dial in to Communicator and it’ll be like we’re having an isdn session. Communicator gives me the option of recording our isdn or IPDTL sessions from my studio as well as yours.
I use a software package called Adobe Audition which gives me a multitude of options for straight recording, character reads, sound effects and general effects, helping to make each voiceover sound as unique and scrumptious as possible.
My studio has been functioning beautifully for over a decade and has recently undergone an upgrade and renovation. I’ll be happy to talk through all my facilities along with your requirements, whenever you’re ready, and we can find the solution that works the best for you.
For all your recording options, please have a read through the recording options section.
I’m rather lucky to live in Hove, part of Brighton & Hove. ‘London by the Sea’ as it’s coined. I often hear from local voiceover artists and London etc agencies who would like to organise some recording but the artists either can’t or don’t want/need to go up to a London studio. That’s where my fabulously funky booth is very handy indeed. Around three minutes’ walk from Hove station (one stop from Brighton Station), I offer a nice, homely, convenient solution for the voiceover artist of your choice.
