Professional voice over studio availability

professional voice over studio of British female voice over actor Natalie Cooper


Half term is here and some brave voice overs have left. Their professional voice over studio availability is nil – they’ve gone, they’ve escaped, happy holidays. Not me. With three children, two dogs, two kittens and two chickens, a holiday is a logistical nightmare. And that’s before I start assembling my portable recording kit.

However, in truth, technology is making things increasingly simple. I can grab my Focusrite Scarlett 2i2, my endlessly forgiving Audio Technica MKH-416 (a highly directional shotgun mic), and my MacBook Air. With the addition of Twisted Wave (or Adobe Audition if I need to deliver more than just raw audio), and Source Connect Now accessed via Google Chrome, I can connect to producers anywhere in the world, in broadcast quality. With ip-DTL, I can even connect via ISDN. 

But recently things have become even easier. Rather than lugging about equipment, or searching Yell for a nearby studio, I can simply search and find a friendly welcome at a professional voice over studio anywhere in the world.  And few things are more fun for a voice over than poking around another vo’s studio! Enough to (almost) tempt me out of the booth. You’ll find my studio listed here.

In truth, I suspect I will always be the voice over that can’t quite take a holiday. I hate to risk letting down a client, or missing that dream job. Plus, living in one of the most beautiful parts of the country means I don’t need to travel far to get that holiday feeling. On a warm day, my garden will more than suffice! So, if you’re holidaying in the South West, and need a studio, do pop in. We’re just off the A303, at about the point you really really need a cup of tea.
