GRAHAM (the boss!)
has been in the music and recording business for "longer than
I care to remember".
A huge amount of experience has been gained over the years and this
experience is applied to all of the work that we carry out under Stuart's
supervision. Much of our voice work features Stuart himself and when
not talking (seldom), he puts his broadcast and recording expertise
to good use by producing the works performed by other artistes.
As we are well versed in all aspects of radio programme production
for DAB, DRM, FM, Satellite or Internet, those many important details
often missed by some, is daily routine for us. Our speciality is in
music radio of most genres (we do talk radio too) and our experience
covers the changes over many years of styles and techniques. Our comprehensive
commercial music library is available for clients who make royalty
returns in the normal manner. Output recorded, FTPd, Streamed or ISDN.
Satellite downlinks available.
RSL or Community Radio.
If you are planning an RSL or setting up a Community Station in the
UK, we are here to help you, with our skilled staff and a comprehensive
list of rental stock. Everything from microphones to IT playout systems.
We also offer staff training services.
For professionals in the business we can provide an OB service for
when you need that extra coverage. Experienced Broadcast Engineers
are available too.
Properly voiced programme inserts, commercials and station idents
are essential for your success. There never seems to be enough variety
when seeking voice talent - but you need look no further! We have
voices fresh and professional that can work for you, live via ISDN
Many say that voice tracking is wrong and should not be used. Whatever
your thoughts on the subject, it is undeniable that voice tracking
can be a saviour when budgets are low, or perhaps for sustaining output
through the night. Find out how voice tracking can work for your station
- and save you money, so that you can employ the more expensive live
talent during peak times.
How many times have you heard bells ringing or sirens wailing and
not known the reason? Good Voice Alarm messages do away with the uncertainty
and provide a no-panic method of directing personnel to safety. We
work for some of the best VA companies in the UK and deliver our ready-to-use
VA messages to wherever needed in the world. Naturally most of our
output is in English but our team of translators is fluent in both
the original and target languages. These work with foreign national
voice artistes to ensure faultless delivery in the selected language.
If you are really desperate, we are even expert at that hard-to-speak
Getting the message across to your audience is vital - and so often
spoiled by DIY attempts. Just because the CEO has a relative who wants
an ego trip is no good reason to use him if he has the wrong voice
or can't deliver. We'll help you get the best from your script with
the right choice of voice talent and the subsequent production.
We have a good library of production music and sound effects all available
off the shelf. We'll even assist you with copyright clearances and
returns. If you would like special music for that important production
we have composers and musicians available - please see the Music section
We love music and especially in audio-only productions it is a highly
powerful tool for setting the required mood and feeling.
As a result we have paid particular attention to the music in our
commercial and production libraries. Often there is a need for that
special piece, arranged specifically to suit the production. We have
composers, arrangers and musicians available to create and perform
that important score just for you. The performance and recording of
more complex music is carried out in our associate Music Studio and
is delivered ready to use. If the musical piece is technically simple
- perhaps a single keyboard or other instrument, we'll be pleased
to handle that in-house, subject to studio availability. Buy-out or
copyright-free music can be yours too.
Our current facility is a small, self contained radio and voice-over
studio situated in Norfolk England, in the heart of the beautiful
Norfolk Broads. We are just 7km east of the City of Norwich and have
easy access to local amenities including hotels and B&B.
A larger adjacent 'Studio B' is currently under construction and when
complete will allow clients to visit and to sit-in on productions.
We will be able to record small musical productions in-house whilst
voice-only or radio production is carried out in the existing smaller
'Studio A'. Our recording services are digital and we have non-linear
hard disc PC-IT equipment for editing and storage. Mixers by Soundcraft
& Sonifex. When your production is complete we can duplicate it
to CD for distribution. If you need connections to the outside world
we have the usual facilities of ISDN and Internet, together with telephone
