Voice over & vocals in our studio. At Starsound Studios they are our specialty. A recording of a vocal that is not part of the narrative is a production technique used in radio, television or other media presentations as a voice over. The voice-over is reading from a script.
It is usually pre-recorded and placed over the top of a video. Documentaries, news reports, or commercials use this technique. Vocals are the one thing we all record and its the one thing all listeners hear. That fact makes it the essential part of a song. Therefore, it demands the most time and care in a recording.
Any vocal recording must have great care taken in the choice of microphones and pre-amps. Capturing the right sound is paramount. Recording vocals is a very intimate situation. We take pride in providing a vocal artist the best listening environment, a comfortable vibe, and a spacious booth with all the accessories needed.
You will have your vocal mixer at your fingertips. This way you can control what you wish to hear and how loud. We have Focal headphones which have outstanding sonic quality.
We try to maintain a pressure-free and compassionate environment. Vocalists are under an enormous amount of pressure. It is extremely revealing. If we can make that less intimidating, your vocal take will be that much better.
We take great pride in processing vocals in a way that they have all the effects they need without sounding that way. In the songs we record, there is a lot of processing. However, when in the context of the rest of the mix, the vocals sound natural. The sound is warm and inviting. We believe that you should be the star - not the effects!
Starsound Studios vocals sound precisely how they should. Please check out our Media Page for several audio examples.
