At Alchemix, over a period of 20 years of Corporate Recording, we have created special techniques for flawless voice-over recording.
Having recorded month after month, navigation system voice-over's, lecture scripts, radio commercials, train public announcements and many other projects, has helped us to create and fine tune our recording methods, for the ultimate in voice over recording results.
To the lay person, recording an announcer or "voice-over" artist would seem to be relatively simple compared to music recordings, but far from it, it's a creative/technical task not to be taken lightly.
Speech sounds are harmonically and dynamically complicated, because of the way vocals are produced-by the chest; lungs; diaphragm; larynx; the oral cavity, including the tongue, hard and soft palates, the teeth and lips, the nasal cavities; and by the dynamic interaction of all those elements through time.
Explosions of air bursting from the mouth, the lips and tongue can sound wet, and "sss" sounds can over modulate a track.
The engineer has to have a keen ear, a good technical understanding of how to capture the voice cleanly and special techniques of how to suppress hard sounds such as P and T, and to direct the voice over artist to stay a consistent distance and angle from the business end of the microphone.
Prices: $185 inc GST will cover one hour studio time with engineer.
We typically setup the gear requested, before the start of the session.
For extra hours, the cost is reduced to $99 p/hr. Ask about a full day price.

What are the defining characteristics of a good voice-over recording?
Specific acoustics of the room. The purpose built Sound-Baffles need to be pretty dead, with fabric-covered linings, acoustic panels and large enough for reflected sound to travel out one way, and then return.
As little external interference as possible - just a clean feed from the mic.
The Alchemix Voice over set up has moving wall panels, to suit every possible sound requirements.
The voice over talents need to have wide topic reaching experiences, they need to be good storytellers and a voice quality that is not too sibilant or too dull.
Mouth noises and the like can be taken care of during editing, even little clicks in the middle of words. But you've go to start with an artist who has a voice that possesses clarity and a pleasant quality.
