Broadcast Quality Voiceovers 

Sound Gallery Studios provide the highest standard voice recording facility at broadcast quality, using the industry standard ProTools for both voice-over recording and sound/voice narration to picture in our acoustically treated and sound-proofed vocal booth. Producers and directors can listen in or direct sessions from anywhere in the world using telephone or Skype patch which enables 2 way communication between yourself, the talent and the engineer. The audio mix is then sent to your e-mail immediately after the session. Through experience we have found this solution to be the one providing the most high quality audio as well as most cost effective medium for our clients compared to ISDN. With our high-speed internet connection the finished audio files can be with you in no time at all. Free Wi-Fi is also available to all clients during sessions.

Client Feedback

When we booked Sound Gallery (at very short notice) to record some singing for the songs that appear in Far From The Madding Crowd, I don't know if they were expecting the films principal leads, the director, the producer, the choreographer and half of the production team to invade their space. Well that's what happened and they were brilliant, very accommodating with any requests/demands and the engineer, Duncan Chave, was fantastic. Completely unphased under pressure and really knows his stuff. All round thumbs up. Support your local studio!’ Neill McCall, producer (Fox Searchlight UK)

 

Everything went really smoothly during our voiceover sessions at Sound Gallery - thank you once again for all your help. All the best and hope to work with you in the future - here's hoping for a second series!’ 

Gillian Irvine, BBC Scotland
