TalkShop is the sweet spot
Our wickedly creative team has tackled thousands of challenging projects with professionalism and panache.
Our Studio Space:
This luxurious control room comfortably accommodates eight visitors, all of whom have a direct view of the booth – which can record up to five VO artists at once. Its superior sound quality compares to rooms twice the price.
Our recording studios were built expressly for voice-over recording and include professional engineering services, excellent mic selection, wireless internet, world-class cappuccino and laid-back comfort. Want the same great quality as Studio A but a cozier and super-comfortable space? Best for a single VO with a spacious producer’s desk for two.
For out-of-towners, there’s direct skype and phone patch connection as well as low-priced ISDN service. And with digital delivery, you’ll have your finished recording files moments after they’re mastered. Studio C is the most intimate of our studios with a custom booth that was built for a more natural and open sound. Accommodates up to three talents, with just enough room for engineer and producer.
