Service Description

I recently upgraded all of my equipment and relocated to a dedicated voiceover studio. All of my voiceover recordings are made in a professionally acoustically tuned room. Now I can choose from a variety of large diameter condenser microphones and the latest in digital and analog preamp technology to suit the project. Noise free recordings result from having the recording hardware outside the studio itself.
