How To Find Inexpensive Audition Studios

Hey there!

There are a number of studios that offer what are called “talent rates,” at usually around a dollar a minute: $10 for ten minutes, $20 for twenty minutes, and so on. This is usually 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® Pro 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.

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

    • David H. Lawrence XVII May 31, 2012 at 11:03 am #

      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.

    Garden of sound offers similar rates: http://gardenofsound.com/wordpress/?page_id=24

    • Laura September 3, 2016 at 9:32 am #

      Similar rates to what?

      • David H. Lawrence XVII September 5, 2016 at 2:44 pm #

        Those listed in the charts for the individual studios, some as low as a dollar a minute.

    Good morning!

    Are there “audition” studios in Orange County that you would suggest? Thanks!

  4. Tansy September 3, 2016 at 9:39 am #

    David, thanks for putting together this extensive list. Very helpful if we’re traveling around the country, as well as LA :-) That was no small feat!

  5. Karen Rose Richter September 3, 2016 at 10:53 am #

    Thanks, David! When you hear of any in NV, UT, ID, WY, CO, NM, or AZ, I hope you’ll post as well, though I doubt it’ll be in time for this upcoming 2.5 week road trip coming up this Labor Day. I know, picky, picky. LOL!!!

  6. Dale September 5, 2016 at 2:28 pm #

    Great information, as always.

  7. Karen Rose Richter September 6, 2016 at 4:52 pm #

    Here might be another studio for your list. I just saw this one posted in another thread: Absolute Pitch located in Bethesda, MD.

  8. James Kananen September 27, 2016 at 5:23 pm #

    Thanks for listing Bad Racket in Ohio Studios. We have the best rates and do all sorts of voice over work. We also offer video services. So if you’re ever in Cleveland, Ohio, give us a ring.

    David, I think iAudition is no more.
