If you’re looking to invest in great voice actors for your next project, it can seem like a bit of a minefield when it comes to choosing the actors, finding the studios, organising diaries, and making sure everyone is on the same page at the same time. Add into that mix the current global pandemic and you’ll be forgiven for feeling a little overwhelmed!
Agencies with in-house recording studios work with you to arrange all of the logistics for your project. This includes finding the actors, booking them in to record, and organising remote recording sessions should travel not be an option.
Choosing the Best Agency for your Requirements
Voice recording is used in so many different projects, from games to commercials, corporate videos, and even in-flight entertainment on planes!
We’ve worked with hundreds of brands over the years, and on thousands of projects, and one of the deciding factors for many of them was that, unlike some others, we have our own in-house studios.
With that being said, here are five reasons why agencies with in-house studios are the best to work with for your next audio recording project.
As an agency, our priority is making sure you get the very best result. That means you get a team on board that knows what they’re doing, when they need to be doing it and has a full understanding of your requirements and why it’s important to you.
Some agencies will outsource work, which means you could be working with different people for different parts of the projects, especially if the agency doesn’t have their own recording studio and they need to hire one.
For our team, this isn’t the case. We’ll work with you directly and get to know your needs and requirements straight away. What’s more, you’ll work with the same people throughout the whole process.
Working with the same team throughout the project means that there is no time wasted bringing people up to speed, and everyone is invested in the project from start to finish, leading to greater satisfaction for the client and greater satisfaction for the team involved when they see a project completed well.
Speed of Turnaround
Another common reason that agencies with their own studios are good to work with is the speed of turnaround.
From project conception to project completion, it’s an easy process. There are no worries over recording studio hire, whether you’ll have the right equipment if there will be support on-site, everything is there, ready to go, and diary management is handled professionally.
This smooth operation leads to a faster turnaround for a project, saving your business money and a whole lot of effort!
Better ROI for the Client
We appreciate that a professional audio recording for any project is a big investment, both in time and money. You want to make sure you get it right and that revisions are kept to a minimum.
If you’re trying to work with lots of different agencies and suppliers, the logistics can be a nightmare and may eventually push costs up when people and studios are needed at short notice or when projects don’t quite turn out as expected because the communication wasn’t there.
Working with an agency mitigates this worry because everything is handled in-house, which means less time wasted and more time being productive. This has a knock-on effect of having a better return on investment for the commissioning client.
As a bonus, agencies like us will have a list of the right voice actors for the right projects and will usually have access to different languages and accents depending on the requirements.
Access to Professional Equipment and Studios
If you’ve looked into recording studio hire options, you may have been left wondering whether or not you’ll have the support you need during your sessions, and, for many brands, there is always a concern over the equipment the studio offers and any time constraints.
At Chatterbox Voices, we like to mitigate all of those worries by offering a flexible service to our clients. We offer sessions by the hour, half-day, or full-day, and we have expert engineers on-site ready to help whenever you need them. This means you get the best value for your money and your project is much more likely to run smoothly.
