Additional Services

Each room is able to share access to all VTR decks & other services, such as ISDN, Source Connect, Zoom accounts & archiving.

All our work is backed up for future use, call us to restore previous projects.

Tracklaying

Tracklaying is an affordable way to prepare projects for studio mixing.

It has access to the same huge bank of sound effects as the studios and can also access our whole projects archive to find any sound at our fingertips.

Tracklay is best suited to long form projects like drama, animation but is also suited to intense sound design on short form projects.

ADR

We have completed ADR work for a number of high end TV drama & film projects, including Dr Who, Line of Duty etc.

We offer multiple mic setups including 416, COS-11d along with visual and audio cue aids for the artists, beeps and/or wipes.

We would require cues before the session in either writtten PDF form or MIDI file exported from EDi Cue or similar.

ISDN/VOIP

For connections to other studios we can connect via ISDN, Source Connect Pro or a variety of browser based VOIP applications.

We can record with talent based elsewhere or connect to other studios with an artist present at our facilities.
