VOICEOVER RECORDING

We record voiceovers.  The lion’s share in this city.

Our microphone arsenal includes Neumann large diaphragm condensers, Sennheiser hyper cardioids and Sanken lavaliers – all run through Class-A pure tube or Solid State mic preamps into Avid Pro Tools HD.

With large live rooms and acoustically-controlled booths, we can accommodate just about anything you can throw at us – be it for radio, television, ADR, podcasts…or?

ISDN & SOURCE-CONNECT

We’ve got ISDN (or digipatch, depending on where you’re from) and Source Connect Pro at the ready.  Whether it’s quick hi-fi monitoring of a mix session, or an all-day ADR marathon, our Telos Zephyr Xtreme units get quite a workout in an average week.  Over the years, we’ve built many strong relationships with vendors across the country and beyond.  Need help finding a studio in Athens?  Greece or Georgia, we’re on it.

MIX TO PICTURE

Yeah, we do that too.  From :05 stingers to longform pieces, in both stereo and 5.1 surround.  We lock our picture-based sessions to dedicated sync generators for proper frame edge alignment and sharp, accurate playbacks every time.  Yes, we obey the law of the 2-pop as well.

SOUND DESIGN & FOLEY

The nice thing about a music company and a post production facility being under one roof is the ability to bring a holistic approach to the sound design of our projects.  From the feel of the music, to the timbre of the voice (or bark), to the impact of the sound effects; we have the ability to custom-build each element to provide an integrated sound tailored for each spot.  Need a particular something recorded on-location?  We’ve got the gear and passports ready to go.


ENGINEERING

If you can dream it, it can be done.  Need a talent recommendation?  You’re covered.  Got an impossible sound design project?  We’re all ears.  Check out a few of the prouder moments right here.  Oh, yeah – y se habla español!

John Lukas

Lead Engineer

From the mean streets of Hopkins to the barrios of Madrid, John’s built up a diverse portfolio in the media world.  With audio as his weapon of choice, he’s done everything from art installations to albums, and tucked in a few thousand radio and television spots along the way.  Globetrotting, photography, film and unearthing “gotta have it” music keep him busy when he’s not slaving over a hot mixer.  Outside-the-box thinking, superhero speed and Spanish language skills mean that you’re in good hands with this guy.
