We assure you a great sounding product, whether this is a complete audio branding, a soundlogo, a campaign that needs music or maybe a voice-over? But how do we work, and when do you even consider making your branding audible? Many companies are aware of the positive changes a sonic identity can be, but choose to wait with it because "it's only for big brands", or similar excuses. Below we try to clear things up a bit and make sure that your branding will sound JUST as good as it looks.
When is sonic branding relevant to me and my company?
The perfect time is now, and here’s why: Integrating sound into your brand identity isn't just 'nice-to-have,' it's a strategic boost that changes the game. The sooner you begin, the deeper your sonic signature will resonate with your audience, which increases memorability and impact. If you already have a solid grasp of your brand's personality, that's great! We can tailor the audio experience to seamlessly align with your existing corporate identity. But if you're still in the brand-building phase or even considering a rebrand, we can be your creative partner in defining, or redefining, how your brand sounds. Remember, it's never too early to think about audio branding.

Lets talk about getting a voice-over
Choosing a voice
The first step is to choose a suitable voice. Fine Tune Audio's voice library contains a large number of professional voice -overs which you can listen to. Maybe you already have an idea of what you like. Or maybe you do not know yet which voice is best for your brand or organization? Either way, we are ready to help you out without any obligation. As soon as we come to an agreement we can schedule the recording session!
At Fine Tune Audio, we record almost all voice-overs in our own studio. Would you like to be digitally present at the recording session? That is possible! Before the recording session starts we will briefly discuss the script with you. Perhaps certain elements need to be emphasized, or some words have a very specific pronunciation. Our voice-over can take this into account. During the recording session we always record several takes. We coach our voice-over so that we can record your script in different ways, but always with the right tone-of-voice.
During the recording session, we record multiple takes. This stage is followed by the editing of the audio. After removing any unnecessary noises, we make a selection of the best takes so that your story comes out exactly right. Maybe slightly more intensity here, or a little more restraint there. There are many considerations in choosing the right takes. At Fine Tune Audio you are assured of crystal clear voice recordings that convey your story powerfully and effectively.
To make your recording sound excellent, we have to edit the audio. This phase is also called processing. While processing the audio, we apply some tricks in our studio to make the voice stand out in the right way. For example, some extra bass can be added to make the voice sound nice and deep. At Fine Tune Audio we believe that processing is the icing on the cake. That is why we put extra emphasis on processing so that your audience can fully understand your story.
The final step in the whole recording process is called loudness monitoring. Here we ensure that the voice recording always sounds clear and never overpowers the music or video. We also make sure that the voice can be heard on any medium. With a recording of Fine Tune Audio your story can be experienced optimally, both on large expensive surround systems and tiny laptop speakers.
