Se habla Español… So you don’t have to.

If you’ve ever been tasked with producing a spot in Spanish, chances are you’ve seen that it tends to get a little more complicated than just a translation from English.  The potential pitfalls (though sometimes humorous) of mis-translations and content inaccuracies can drive you loco, pronto. Though still in the same zoo, Spanish advertising is […]

Yup. We can help you with that…

  It’s always surprising to see where some phone calls lead.  We like to answer every “Can you…” or “Do you guys…” question about production audio with a “Yes” or at least a “We’ll find a way”.  And though there are some limitations as to what we can achieve in different scenarios, the best results […]

This Dojo Believes in the 2-Pop

  Technology in media production has helped make audio tape machines, 3/4″ video machines and digibetas a thing of the past.  And though technology has helped make the production process much easier and faster, there are techniques and practices from the “old days” that are still perfectly relevant to keep the headaches at bay.  Sync […]

Babble-On explores ‘streaking

Now that we have your attention… We’re keeping an eye on the uptake of SoundStreak, a new software-as-service product (from the company of the same name) for recording remote voice talent. We think the sweet spot for it will be for voice actors or studios who have the equipment to capture high-quality recordings but haven’t […]

Get out of town…

Sometimes there is no substitute for a sound in it’s element. And though our booths provide a well-controlled, exacting environment for capturing voices and foley, on occasion there’s good reason to hit the road in order to get the sounds we need. Whether it be for a truly authentic sound that can’t be captured in […]

Creative. Clinic.

About a month ago we had a fun Marshfield Clinic radio project brought in by Lee Schmidt of Lindsay, Stone and Briggs. It was unique because the main talent in each spot had to act as both singer and voiceover performer – which are very different disciplines. Timing and tempo were essential -  without having […]

“It looked like Bangladesh in there” – Studio B goes wire-less.

“It looked like Bangladesh in there” – Studio B goes wire-less.

“Change is good”. Indeed. Not a bad phrase. In fact, the words “wise” and “necessary” come to mind when considering swapping out one’s Oil or Underwear. And, in reference to the latter, we’d like to add the word “polite” – if only for public benefit. However, sometimes, certain things change that aren’t necessarily “good” or […]
