The White Box Studio

Piers owns and runs a broadcast quality voiceover (and publicity interview) recording studio.

Here, he records voiceovers and also does publicity and down-the-line interviews via ISDN, Source Connect, SourceConnectNow, high quality Skype video, ipDTL and AudioTX via aptx and IP. The studio has been validated by many broadcasters, as well as the studios of Source Connect.

The studio runs Protools 11 on Macs and is video-ready. There is also a PC running externally.

Features

Studio

Fully sound-proof standalone purpose-built Esmono voiceover studio. The sound inside is impeccable. The sound outside doesn’t matter.

Mics

There is a choice of microphones here. The classic Neumann TLM103, the Rode NT2A and the “USA LA favorite” the highly directional Sennheiser 416.

PreAmp

The mighty Avalon 737 SP Valve Amplifier feeding into the industry workhorse Focusrite Saffire Pro 40

Monitors

Studio monitoring via industry standard Tannoy Reveal 601a monitors, plus Beyer DT150 and Sennheiser HD280 pro headphones.

Software

Avid Protools 11 gives the ability to voice to video and links seamlessly to Skype, with the added depths of the glorious Sonnox plugins. The external PC runs the AudioTX Communicator suite of options.

Connectivity, Codecs and VOIP

ISDN connections worldwide via Musicam Prima LT & Audio TX (offering MPEG2, MPEG3, G722, G711, APT & APTx) as well as SourceConnect & IP DTL as VoIP.

Dial & Direct

As well the ISDN facility to connect two studios together, there are also a number of ways to “dial & direct”. You can call in the studio via Skype, Landline & Mobile/Cellphone to listen and direct the recording session down the line. Your finished sound files will be downloadable in minutes, exactly how you wanted them to sound.

“Thank you for the prompt delivery! As always: a pleasure to work with you.”
“Thanks a lot for such a quick work, it sounds brilliant! To work with professionals like you make my job so much easier.”
