I Dream of Wires
The brain and heart of the studio are a high-power, high-performance ProTools HDX digital audio workstation, linked to a NEVE Genesys, the classic, 32-channel British mixing desk that imbues every sound passing through it with a warm, human tone.
A vast collection of plug-ins and analog outboard effects lets engineers work in or out of box, or anywhere in between. A master clock by Antelope, the best in the business keeps everything ticking over in perfect sync.
VO, ADR and Real-Time
We handle every element of narration and voiceover recording for international clients, including talent casting and recording coordination. We cast VO artists, narrators and actors, and record dialogue for projects worldwide.
We also produce VO content for TV, commercials, and corporate films. Our ADR director has a long track record of voice recording, direction and production.
Our Prima ISDN codec system allows us to connect to studios anywhere in the world to remotely record narration, ADR and music vocals in real time, as if in the same room. For directors, producers and artists such as Sting, Jon Bon Jovi and Clint Eastwood, it’s like bringing Tokyo to their doorstep.
The Syn Studio set-up creates a rich, unique sound. A rack of six classic NEVE 1081 pre-amps are teamed with a Fairchild 670 compressor, possibly the world’s most sought-after tube compressor, and beautiful vintage mics from the 1940s and 1950s are on hand to add a glow to vocals and voiceovers.
