There are sound engineers, audio mixers, sound studio directors……and then there is Robbo.
Try him... He works!
Darren was great to work with- would highly recommend. We were on a really tight deadline turning around a mix of 26 interstitials on 'Alphabreaks', and he put everything in to the project and the outcome was fantastic. Thanks Darren!
Like it or not, COVID has changed life in the studio, possibly forever.
To that end, I have created a "Virtual Studio" that is just as interactive as sitting on the couch at the back of the room.
Prior to your session, you'll get a password protected link that gives you complete audio access to the studio at any time during your booking from anywhere you can get an internet signal.
You (or whomever you give your access code to) can sit in on a voice session while they're at the beach, check on progress from the local cafe, request changes or discuss options on the bus ride home, or just keep an ear on what's going on from where ever they are. And at the end of it all, you can listen live to the mix as it is happening, saving the backwards and forwards, and time-costly process of revisions.
PLUS, we can connect with any Voice Artist anywhere on the planet. So suddenly your options when it comes to casting the perfect actor for the part, just became endless. And because we're Source Connect certified, you can rest assured there'll be none of those nasty "sorry we're just having some trouble connecting" moments!!
Of course, you are always welcome to attend any session in person if you'd prefer.

What is a voice over demo, and why should I have one?"Think of it as your audio version of a resume. A good Demo will showcase you doing your very best voice work. Ideally it will be professionally directed, recorded and produced, and will consist of various short clips that feature you doing the various styles of vocal delivery that you would like to showcase. You'll need a demo to show off your skills, sound, vocal range and style in order for an agent or potential client to hear what you can do with your voice. Most importantly, it should be current and ear catching to ensure you stand out from the crowd. To get an idea of how your demo might sound, get in touch...

Do I need to be in Australia /Sydney to do my Demo with you?In short NO! Absolutely not. Voodoo Sound works with voice talent and clients from all over the world. If you have a broadcast quality home studio, you can record from there and we will connect over Source Connect, iPdTL Skype, Zoom, Phone, you name it. Alternatively, you can book a couple of hours at a studio near you and we will patch into them, leaving you free to worry about the reads. Either way, it will sound great.
