Facilities and working process
Location, contact and technical
It'd be great to work with you on your project. Here's a few pointers regarding my services.
I record voiceover daily from my home in Battersea, which is acoustically and technically designed to deliver broadcast standard audio, in a file format of your choice.
I can also attend London studios and edit suites with ease, and at very short notice.
To help you make the right choice of voice, I can rapidly deliver a quick demo for any project, free of charge.
You can monitor or direct a recording session over a standard land line (known as phone patch), with Skype, Source Connect (with a Chrome browser) or via Zoom
I can 'self-direct' if you give a few steers, or ask for a style / energy that matches an existing read on one of my demos.
Recorded audio can be delivered to you in a number of dynamic states. Please request the one that works best for you.
An audio editior / producer, may wish to recieve the audio 'flat'. This is the pure sound of the microphone, with natural peaks and troughs of vocal volume level, Usually, the editor will then compress and add EQ to thier own spec. Totally flat audio sounds natural but can struggle to cut through on busier / louder projects
2. LIGHT COMPRESSION
This gives the vocal a little more 'punch' - evening out volume fluctuations and improving clarity for voice sitting on low level music.
3. HEAVY COMPRESSION
When placing voice heavily into the mix of busy guitar or electronic music, this radio style compression may suit. It's even punchier, but can lose some warmth, light and shade.
A little top and bottom EQ can be applied to add brightness / richness to the vocal.
Numerous effects can be added to all or part of your audio, from cavernous echo, to telephone, to martian!
For a small additional fee, I can edit or tidy up a recording. Examples include: splitting a longer session into individual sections, removing breaths, or turning the best takes into one clean file.
TURN AROUND TIME
When do you need it? If it's a short piece, you could have audio delivered within half an hour - otherwise, to a mutually agreed deadline, within a few working hours or next day.
Small mp3 files can be delivered via email, though the majority are larger for which you'll recieve a WeTransfer link for download.
