Voice-over recording studio

We have a boutique professional-quality voice recording facility based in Bristol, UK, which is ideal for voice-over artists, for recording audio books, commercials, narration and training scripts, radio productions, poetry, meditation scripts, hypnotherapy CDs and many more recorded speech applications.

We have a control room and a dedicated voice recording booth which can accommodate one voice artist seated at a lectern, so we can record monologue and then track-lay where multiple speech, music, sound effects tracks are needed in a production. The voice-over recording rate is £60 per hour with a minimum £1580 session charge. Mixing, editing and production rates are £60 per hour.

What the people say...

Ben G:

Marvin is a very thorough sound engineer... he is always sympathetic to the client requirements. Extremely friendly and approachable, darkHouse provides a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere to work in. The end results were superb. I would recommend darkHouse Multimedia to anybody requiring a friendly, good value and technically proficient recording company

Glynn F:

I had the pleasure to use Marvin's expertise as a recording engineer... I was delighted with the results... I was also delighted with Marvin's approach which is friendly, encouraging and higly professional. I have worked in many recording studios and have often found technicians to be concerned more with the technical rather than the creative. Marvin is different. I recommend him very highly.

Kim D:

...designed and created a fantastic new website for my business which I am absolutely thrilled with.... professional yet approachable, taking time to explain every stage and guiding me [with] expert knowledge and experience... always made me feel as if I was his only client which is a real skill and a rare quality to possess. Thank you so much Marvin, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your services to anyone.

Paul C:

Marvin is calm, positive, competent, genuine, professional, and combines his recording wizardry with his articulate, down-to-earth, person-centred approach to getting the job done efficiently. From first contact through to end product, he does everything he says he will do, at the time scales he promises, to a very high standard, at a very reasonable cost. Highly recommended.

Richard W:

Over the last 6 years, Marvin has produced some first-rate artwork for the Tudor Beats record label. What I appreciate most is not just his professionalism and speed of delivery and enthusiasm, but the real thought and intuitive feeling that he gives to projects. He has a real knack of getting inside whatever project he is working on and his design work really shows the way that he connects with the projects of his clients.

Lisa W:

I have used darkHouse Multimedia over several years ... and have found the service excellent from the initial helpful guidelines to the recording session and through to the final production. Marvin's calm, patient and professional manner allows me to feel comfortable and unrushed ensuring a recording that sounds seamless, professional and exactly the high quality that I want for my clients. I wouldn't go anywhere else. Many thanks Marvin.

Viv K:

I've recorded seven different CDs with Marvin ... his warm and knowledgeable approach makes one feel very comfortable, and his keen ear and eye for detail is second to none. He was so helpful with my narrative, timing and delivery. I also commissioned him to do the artwork for my CDs and he worked to my brief and produced exactly what I wanted, first time around. I recommend Marvin to colleagues and look forward to working with him in the future.

Eurof W:

I worked with Marvin on a five-part BBC Radio 4 project. I found his professionalism to be exemplary ... His attitude and artistic suggestions helped the recordings, and I left the studio on each occasion knowing that we had achieved as perfect a sound recording as possible ... Apart from this professionalism, Marvin also has patience and integrity, and I only hope we have the opportunity to work together again soon.

Sue D:
