The Sound Pound is a custom built recording studio – In a garden.
The main building isn’t just a garden room. It has been treated with extra acoustic dampening, acoustic glass in the doors and windows and air spaces were added in the roof and floor. For this type of building, it’s pretty quiet and works well for recording singing or small groups where a very low noise floor isn’t crucial. It’s also air-conditioned, making it a pleasant place to work in the middle of summer and cosy in the depths of winter.
In September 2015, it was time for phase 2. The Voice Booth! Nick at Audio Schemes spent a week building and installing a bespoke, freestanding voiceover booth. This has made The Sound Pound as quiet as any high-end VO booth in Soho, or anywhere else! Unlike some “professional” home studios, you won’t hear any distant birds, aeroplanes, traffic, cats fighting etc in the background.
The Sound Pound is also available for hire – Need to get someone on ISDN in Essex? Want to record some audio for your own demo? Call or email or visit Voiceover Studio Finder for more information.
