Recordings offer several voice, interview-related and broadcast-related
services frequently requested by clients. These include location
interviews such as "Tape Syncs," studio interviews by
way of our hybrid phone coupler, or full two-way interviews utilising
a wideband ISDN connection using our fine vocal mics. Wideband
interviews are frequently with guests who are participating in
live radio broadcasts originating in other parts of the country.
conducted by telephone, where both parties are recorded in their
respective locations on a quality medium (such as DAT) for subsequent
combining into a single conversation, are typically called "Tape
Syncs" and are used in situations where a studio & ISDN
facility isn't available or where the urgency doesn't require
it. For a "Tape Sync," we bring the needed recording
equipment and quality mic to the interview location and send the
unedited DAT tape to the client, usually without any processing.
Syncs" can be conducted in the studio as well, but in the
studio we have a digital hybrid phone coupler available which
permits isolation of the two sides of the conversation. Once isolated,
the interviewer can be channeled into the interviewee's headphones
and still remain separate from the recording. This permits real-time
coaching of the interviewee by the producer without the producer's
voice on the recording.
day we hear radio broadcasts in which multiple guests participate
seamlessly from all over the country, often with questions directed
at the host or the guests by callers phoning in from the listening
audience. These guests are all sitting in studios of one kind
or another, often Public Broadcasting affiliates, connected by
ISDN transceivers to the radio station producing the show. Shows
are often live, or may be taped for delayed broadcast.
ISDN transceivers permit full fidelity, two way communication
between locations through the use of several digital compression
algorithms. Unless a guest's location is specifically mentioned,
the listening audience is unaware of the geographical separation
between the guests. The Palatine Recordings voice-over studio
is neutral in character and produces a warm vocal sound without
any annoying artifacts. Seated there in front of one of our fine
Neumann microphones, one of which is a vintage Neumann U47 restored
by noted microphone designer & restorer, Klaus Heine, you
can rest assured you sound your best.
We have had the pleasure of providing ISDN service to National
Public Radio on numerous occasions for such shows as "Talk
of the Nation" and have worked as well for WBUR (Boston),
WBEZ (Chicago) and other affiliates. Please check out our client
list for a complete listing.
With a comfortable surrounding, quality sound and reasonable rates,
we look forward to you contacting
us with your voice-over needs.
