How we can help

  • Compose music for the podcast, Audiobook or App.
  • Record the content at the highest quality
  • Provide the appropriate program material for the device or software that you are working on.
  • Provide detailed editing of speech and audio content
  • Piece together all the elements of the project (music, intros/outros, chapters, core content, etc) into one uniform audio product.
  • Master the product for the destination medium
  • Provide guidance (if requested) on what methods work and don’t work within these kinds of tech project.

All We Need To Get Started

  • Content for the Podcast audio.This can be provided on a written script or something that is spoken freely on the day of recording.
  • Organise who will be speaking. We can help with this. If you aren’t doing the talking yourself we can recommend excellent voice over talent or other companies that provide voice talent.
  • All artwork that will be associated with the online media.
    All of these different mediums require different processing and preparation for integration into the parent operating software. We can advise you of what your project will require and provide you with the necessary information to complete your project. Your audio content will be presented at the gold standard across all different devices and mediums.


Podcasts derive their name from “iPod” and “Broadcast”, hence, Podcast. They are more often composed of spoken word but can include music. They are episodic in nature and can be subscribed to or downloaded on to your home computer or a mobile device, like an iPhone or iPod. They are always in a digital medium and are streamed over the internet to the receiving device. Traditionally, podcasts have been free downloads. Podcasts can be streamed as audio, video, enhanced audio (includes images with the audio), ePublications, and even PDFs. Podcast Novels do exist, too. They are broadcasted as episodes rather than one full Audiobook.

Audio Books

As computer technology has been exponentially improving, our ability to store more and more data on smaller devices has also improved. This has paved the way for Audiobooks becoming more prevalent as a medium for novels. The Audiobook is simply a book being narrated in its entirety. As stated above, podcast novels differ from Audiobooks in that they are delivered in episodes. Audiobooks can be listened to from start to finish. They are perfect for people who need to do manual work, or drive, whilst listening to the book. They are also more attractive to people who find large books daunting to read. Our Sydney recording studio is ideal for the creation of Audiobooks. If you need talent to narrate we can help with this, too. For more information about Audiobooks click here.


Apps for smart phones, tablets, and even desktops, often require (like most software) an audio component. This may be as simple as a “beep” when a button is pressed or as complex as a musical score or spoken content. There has been a dramatic increase in the number of available apps online and, now that many people are developing their own apps, a demand for audio to be integrated into these apps. We have discovered the right methods and practices for preparing audio for all different kinds of apps that are on the market. Please feel free to give us a call regarding your app and what kind of audio is required.

Expert Sound Engineers

Working with us means working with the best sound engineers in Sydney

The art of being an excellent sound engineer is not as prominent now that video has become the focus of our world. However, a top quality sound engineer can augment the quality of a production dramatically. When we record a vocal for music or a voice over for an ad we have the ability to enhance every aspect of that recording. The modern tools available to the twenty-first century sound engineer are truly remarkable. Staying on top of the rapid progress is very much a full time job. Let's take a quick look at what work is involved in producing an excellent vocal recording for a typical voice over job.

Our sound engineer will setup the session prior to the talent arriving. In the most extreme cases, often film ADR sessions, the project and microphones will need to be prepared first. Our clients, from film productions companies, are often located in another country like the USA, the UK, or somewhere in Europe. They will send the sound engineer the program material. This will be the video files with SMPTE timecode, the cue sheet, and all specifications required by our sound engineer to capture a similar sound to what was recorded on set. 

Once these program elements are received our sound engineer in Sydney will go into Pro Tools and mark out all the cue points on the timeline of the film. Each entry point will have ADR beeps that will help the talent execute their lines in Synch with the film. In ADR the talent's job will be to lip synch in time with their delivery on set. By setting up the project prior to the talent arriving our sound engineer ensures that the session flows smoothly for the talent. 

Often these "remote sessions" (where the directors and producers are overseas) are facilitated by software that helps us communicate with the overseas studios. Programs like Zoom and Source-Connect allow sound engineers in both locations to be actively involved in the session. The sound engineer overseas can literally press the recording button in one country and our software will obey the command here in Sydney. The directors and producers can watch the video content on their screen whilst listening to the audio being recorded by our sound engineers in Sydney. It's real-time. It's the modern way. It's remarkable!

In this example, an ADR recording session, the sound engineer would also need to setup two microphones. One would be a lapel mic, similar to what might have been used on set, and the other a shotgun microphone. These two microphones are setup by our sound engineer in Sydney in front of a screen. This is to allow the talent to clearly view the film as they are performing. An iPad is also positioned in close proximity to the microphones. This will have all the cue points and lines that the talent will be reading during the ADR recording session. 

During the session the sound engineer will be facilitating the smooth capture of cue lines. They make sure that all the takes of each line are saved for future recall and re-listening, and can even cut recorded takes together to create a composite "best take". 

Once the ADR session is complete the post-production work on the re-recorded lines begins. The amount of work that goes into the audio post-production is beyond the scope of this example. However, we can give a few examples of the kind of technology our sound engineer might decide to use on the recorded cue lines. There is software to reduce lip and mouth noises. Harsh sibilant frequency can be curtailed. The synch of the spoken lines can be further tightened by intelligent algorithms that look at the original "on set" spoken audio and literally stretch, cut, and compress lines recorded in our Sydney recording studio and make them even tighter. The list of tasks, options, and enhancements that our sound engineer can apply to a voice recording is enormous.
