Audition Studios

Hey there!

There are a number of studios that offer what are called “talent rates” for stopping by, doing an audition and sending it off. These rates are for VO talent that either have yet to install home/portable equipment, or are at the wrong end of town, or can’t get to your agency when a last minute audition comes in. Aside from recommending using Rehearsal or iAudition on an iPhone or iPad, use the following studios if you need a place to record an audition for a reasonable price.

And please email me if you know of any others I’ve missed, or if you have corrections to the list. Call ahead to make sure these offerings are accurate, and that the studio is available – don’t just show up. Also, please note that these are in no particular order of recommendation.

    I assume Sessions and Songwritting are mostly for recorded music rather than VO?
    Is that common?

      No, it’s for VO – it’s doubtful you’d even get a guitar tuned and leveled in just 10 minutes, let alone recorded. I’m sure they simply make extra money by offering this VO-only option.
