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. Be prepared to pay for your time before leaving the session, and ask if they’ll accept credit cards or if you need to bring cash/check.
Unless explicitly stated otherwise, you should assume that the time is inclusive, meaning it covers your time on mic, any necessary quick edits, and emailing/delivery of files. Manage your time on-mic to leave time for the other parts of the process!
These are in alphabetical order and grouped geographically, rather than in any particular order of recommendation.
