The Soundtrack Remote Recording kit, an easy to use, sanitized and self-contained home studio.
It’s a plug and play ADR and Voiceover solution that includes a direct connection to an in-studio Soundtrack engineer. Our skilled engineers will be driving the session while you remotely supervise via Zoom (or your preferred remote conferencing software).
We’re recording, you’re directing, no one is in the same room.
Soundtrack can deliver the unit to your talent’s home and provide safe, on-site tech support (contact us regarding northeast regional availability), or we can ship the unit domestically (Continental U.S.). Intrigued? Of course you are!
Please contact Carlie in NY or Leo in Boston to learn more
While we can stream video of the talent, we recommend just using audio for communication. This helps both maximize bandwidth for audio on the remote rig and maximizes screen real estate for the talent on the remote rig as well.
We record full resolution (32 bit / 48K WAV) audio locally on the remote kit. We also record over the remote connection. Depending on the talent's bandwidth the remote record can be near full resolution and can be used in final production. After the session we can also transfer the original audio from the remote so you can work with the original full resolution 32bit / 48K WAV files.
We highly recommend a direct connection to your router if possible. (There is a long network cable included in the kit.) The stability of the session depends greatly on the remote kit's available bandwidth. We have had many successful sessions over a wifi connection but we always request to secure a hard line if possible.
Once powered up and online we are able to take control of the kit and handle any trouble shooting from the studio. Also our highly knowledgable staff is also only a phone call away for help on the initial setup. If your talent is located near New York or Boston we may be able to arrange a member of our staff to handle a complete setup as well should that be requested.
We have a reasonable day rate charge for the kit, which will be charged for everyday it is out of the studio. This is in addition to the actual studio time booked at Soundtrack to run the session. Special pricing is available for long term rental.
