[ Hello ]

Welcome to Virtual Sound, the smartest way to manage your audio post production in this new era of content. We produce impeccable sound remotely and deliver it, ready to go live, while you get on with the rest of the production.

About

We are a carefully curated network of audio producers, VO agents/artists, studios, engineers, sound designers...  managed by our experienced production team and hosted in the ether to create...

...a virtual facility that challenges the concept of a traditional post-house.

We have spent many years with our advertising clients in Soho post facilities, and while we also (very much) like to order sushi and coffee from a comfy sofa…

...today’s media production landscape requires a more affordable and flexible audio post service.

Our sofa is virtual. A sofa of the mind if you like. Making you feel comfortable that your production is in the safest possible hands.

Our production team have many years of on-the-job experience project managing audio workflow in the advertising and brand space so you always know the production will be handled with efficiency and expertise. We will handle ALL aspects of your audio recording and mixing and send you one simple invoice including usage where required. We will…book studios, find and book VO artists, negotiate usage, advise on more creative sfx and sound design, mix and deliver your audio for any media format and manage the whole process to completion. Fast.

So...if you like the idea of a reduced workload and premium quality audio when you are working with a more challenging budget, we are designed and built for you.

We look forward to hearing from you.

  • Description:

    A beautifully shot and post-produced film for BMW and the RFU. We were asked for a recording of a rugby crowd singing ‘Swing Low Sweet Chariot’, so we took three sets of the best microphones money can buy to Twickenham and recorded the crowd at England v Samoa, and the significantly noisier, 82,076 strong crowd at England v Australia. What you hear in the spot is the result of combining several different types of well placed microphones and mixing the results in post. Thanks to our recording team at Shorefront Films for their expertise.

"As in-house producer / director for Ford Europe these guys quickly became an invaluable resource for me. They worked miracles finding library / unsigned music that was affordable, and delivered smart music edits to help the tracks tell the story. Also on several occasions they put forward lesser-remembered songs from famous artists that were instantly recognisable but didn't cost the earth"

Loren Colson, Lead Producer, Kontenthaus

VS are the perfect solution for our turnarounds and needs. Knowing that all of your audio is being handled professionally takes a lot of the pressure off. No project is too small or complicated and they will always look to find the best solution for your budget / timeframe – our budget goes a lot further. On a personal note, they are an incredible team who are an absolute pleasure to work with

Greg Fee, Content Producer, M&C Saatchi Sports & Entertainment

Virtual Sound have been a blessing for our workflow - it is so great to simply send a brief, and then have the sound design and mix all taken care of at such a high spec. Our endless music searches are now a thing of the past too! Thank you!

Laura Smith, Post Producer, Condé Nast

Virtual Sound have been a trusted partner of mine for ages. They've always been up for a curveball or two, and have never failed to deliver the goods. A pleasure to work with

Chris Walsh, Creative Studio, Netflix

"VS are simply amazing to work with. They just get the brief and every project becomes an absolute pleasure. Their knowledge and advice is fantastic and they can meet any deadline. VS are definitely my go-to company and we’d happily recommend them to anyone (they’re a good laugh too!)"

Franzi Nicolaus, Freelance Producer

"Virtual Sound have proven to be flexible, understanding, efficient and extremely talented. From VO casting/recording, mixing, sound design we’ve produced amazing work despite time constraints and tricky briefs. The process has always been super smooth and every brief we have tackled together a real pleasure. We are looking forward to working with them again and again in the future!"
