The Audio Suite is a highly-regarded UK digital audio company based in Birmingham, serving a global client base, and is renown for its friendly, personal approach and its impressive yet intimate studio environment.

We provide bespoke, high value-added post-production, ADR and Voice Over sound services from two compact and exceptionally appointed mixing rooms and adjoining voice studio, as well as high-end location sound recording and premier-level Outside Broadcast sound engineering.

Remote working is also possible through either connecting to us via ISDN or through the simple and free-to-use Cleanfeed audio over i.p. (AoIP) application.

Whilst the two mixing rooms and voice booth are primarily the personal workspace of film Sound Designer and Supervising Sound Editor Neil Hillman MPSE, these facilities are also made commercially available to external clients as our schedule and commitments allow.

We welcome visiting clients and artists, especially if they’re fun to be around, so please feel free to call us for studio availability.

We understand and can usually accommodate short-notice or out-of-hours bookings and we are as happy and committed to applying our extensive audio post-production skills and experience to a one-hour VO, ADR or TV commentary recording session as we are to fully supervising a theatrical-release feature film.

The Audio Suite has easy accessibility as well as the convenience of remote access to impressive in-house facilities, combined with an extensive track-record in audio post-production that includes many hundreds of hours of prime-time television programmes, TV and cinema commercials, feature films, internal, external and business-to-business communications, podcasts and best-selling talking books.

What we’re getting up to…

All of our television mixes meet the stringent EBU-R128 standard; and audio assets are delivered securely via our encrypted Cloud Audio Post server.

We’re also experienced in creating TV and Cinema commercials. We arrange Dolby certification through our long-standing associations with good friends and strategic partners such as 750mph and Jungle Studios, Soho.

For ‘remote’ VO and ADR sessions, our Pronto 2 ISDN codec is simple to connect with and is a flexible ‘phone-patch’ option for non-ISDN studios or clients working away from the studio. It is compatible with almost all other studio ISDN codecs and offers G711, G722 and MPEG encoding modes, which means that we can easily connect to other studios and work together with timecode locked pictures; or clients may simply prefer the convenience of listening and Directing their voice artist by calling in on a standard telephone line. For audio over i.p. (AoIP) sessions, the simple and free-to-use Cleanfeed application is our current preferred  solution and one that works equally well with a Directors Smartphone or a studio console; but whichever option is chosen, a free, pre-booking line check guarantees a smooth session with us.

Please note that all clients are asked to settle our studio fees before a VO or ADR session commences.
