Your voice recorded to perfection
From 1 hour sessions to bespoke projects, Crown Lane offers fully isolated, acoustically treated VO tracking solutions with immediate turnaround. We are specialists in Radio, Event and Commercial Voice Over.
We regularly work with agencies who demand the highest level of quality. We record VOs regularly for Aid Agencies; Multi-National Corporations; Charities; Awards VTs; Corporate Websites & Radio Commercials. We also undertake audiobook recordings including a recent Audible release: a 300,000 word trilogy.
When additional seating, microphones and headphone sends are required, please let us know prior to the session. We have a security coded entrance through a coffee house so agencies can meet clients in a comfortable surrounding, and have ample break out space.
Neumann TLM49 (An even, incredibly ‘finished’ sounding mic requiring little/no EQ or de-essing)
AKG C-414 (An all time classic microphone, very sensitive with low background noise)
Sontronics Aria (smooth, detailed clear with a richness of tone)
Sontronics Sigma (Chocolatey velvety mellow characteristics reminiscent of the 1940s)
We have 4 grades of pop shield depending on the plosives and sibilance of the voice and in post production, various de-essers and compressors if required.
Recording & Processing:
Oram desk has very low noise pre-amps and has the characteristics of large consoles despite its modest size
Compressor WA-76 An unbelievably accurately modelled compressor from the 1960s which we often use subtly on VO sessions if required by post production
SSL – X Logic interface This interface connects the analogue studio world seamlessly with the digital recording software. It has up to 24 channels – so we can easily cater for multi-mic setups, for example for radio shows and commercial podcast creation.
Pro Tools We always record at 44.1 24 bit .WAV unless you require something else. All edits are undertaken either during breaks or immediately after the session. Any errors are immediately labelled but recording flow is not stopped unless requested by you. We ask that you provide a printed script for us to reference against in Pro Tools during sessions.
Monitoring Our Genelec industry standard monitors ensure that the mixes arrive with you, your agency or your client sounding exactly as they did during the session.
