The key to achieving excellent voiceovers is first and foremost with the casting of great voice talent.
Secondly, but just as important is the production team directing, recording and editing the project.
With a international talent pool and our award wining production team, 3AS is fully equipped to deliver the highest
quality of recordings possible.
All voices are recorded in professional isolation booths for maximum signal to noise ratio. We record digitally in high resolution with multiple sampling rate options, large diaphragm condenser microphones to obtain the highest possible sound quality at the source. We follow Industry standard recording methods (record dry or flat), and set recording levels as such. Upon request, limited processing may also be applied during recording to control the peaks, while maintaining a consistent, even volume.
FILE DELIVERY - This last process seems simple enough but is crucial in making successful delivery dates, and nonexistent error reports from clients.

The phrase "sound design" means different things to different people. The 3AS team tends to agree with many who say,
sound design is the generation, synthesis, recording (studio and location) and manipulation of sound, or "sculpting" sound.
Therefore the following are all different types of sound design we offer:
(synthesizer programming, generating and recording found sounds, Foley, applying effects during audio production, etc.)
We offer sound design for music production, sound effects, film, television, animation, computer/video games, audio books, theatre, and live sound and sound art all customizable to your specific audio needs.
All audio recordings are meticulously edited one at a time (No batch editing is the 3AS standard), removing clicks and pops in accordance to client specifications.
If required noises and breaths are removed, and all pauses including the head & tail
of each file is manually adjusted for best playback results.
We use only the very best and state of the art editing tools available such as the complete izotope post production suite and their industry professional grade of add-ons. Every audio file is individually labeled in accordance to client and script specification and its line and/or game engine ID. The audio files are then delivered as per client format and type requirements via a secure method of transfer.
