    Voice Over



    Voice-Over Recording In Reading

    When you need to find just the right voice for your script, Matinée will have one to fit the bill. We can tap into a network of professional voice artists, with a range of fees to suit your budget. Whether your programme requires a documentary-style read, character voicing, an impressionist or a celebrity, Matinée will help you find the voice you need.

    Foreign Language Voice Recordings

    When commissioning foreign language versions, you must be confident that the narrator is a native speaker. That’s our guarantee, along with a considerable cost saving over the London agencies, and a studio rate that’s half what you might pay in the capital. Trust Matinée to handle the whole project, from translation and casting, to recording and re-mixing.

    Music And Effects

    Usually your video will have an existing soundtrack which will include a combination of voice-over, music and effects. Our recording engineer can use the original m&e track where possible, or recreate them so that that the new version sounds as good as the original. And we have our own music library so you don’t have to pay expensive MCPS licence rates.

    Sound Design

    Come and complete your project in our fully-equipped digital sound studios, where our team of experienced sound designers will help you shape your ideas into a great sounding final product by mixing your voice-over with music and sound effects. Both studios are equipped with the latest Pro-Tools systems.

    BBC quality acoustics

    You will find our voice recordings sound clear and crisp. This is because both our studios have been acoustically designed to a very high specification. This means a specialised construction where the internal acoustics have been fine-tuned using sound absorption materials and non parallel surfaces. This reduces acoustic reflections to help make the recordings sonically pure.

    Latest Pro-Tools technology

    Both our voice over recording studios are equipped with the latest Pro-Tools technology to speed up the recording process by minimising the need for re-takes. This saves valuable time during the recording process and reduces the overall costs of the session. And when necessary, we can record your session either lip-sync or phrase-sync to picture.

    Voice over recording in our Reading studios for Allergan Optive

    Allergan Ophthalmology required a French voice over translation for their Optive product video. Optive is a dry-eye treatment, which lubricates the eyes and helps to prevent infection and vision impairment.

    The script was translated by Allergan’s translation agency, and we cast a male French voice over artist who attended our recording studio in Reading. Our recording studio uses the latest pro-tools software and Neumann microphones to pick-up all the nuances of the performance. We imported the video to our pro-tools studios as a BITC (burnt-in-time-code) MOV file, which enabled us to record the French voice over in sync to the existing English narrator.

    In our post-production suite we mixed the French voice over with the existing music and effects track, and laid back to the video. Final delivery was made as an MP4 file.

    Fantastic to work with

    The team at Matinée are fantastic to work with. They are really communicative, helpful and turned around the work as quickly as possible. I have no complaints at all and we will definitely be getting back in contact when we next need subtitles.

    I use Matinee a lot for subtitling projects

    I use Matinee for a lot of subtitling projects and they never fail to meet the deadlines. Great customer service and fast responses. Well done to the entire team.

    Friendly and efficient service

    The speed of response, and friendly, efficient service from all staff was quite exceptional. Matinee particularly stands out by putting the customer’s needs first, even when the job is relatively small and a bit of a technical challenge. I would strongly recommend Matinee for any subtitling work.
