Other paragraphs are fine.

Blockquotes look like this.

Innit.

Annoyingly, this section must have the title "About" to format properly. And it should use the template "About".

Welcome to Virtual Sound, a smart new 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

Audio post is a big chunk of the production process with multiple suppliers to manage and moving parts to coordinate. Broadcast sound mix, sound design, Foley, SFX placement, voice casting, VO recording and usage negotiation, script translation and library music searches. That’s a lot of stuff.

We have carefully curated a global network of audio engineers, sound studios, voice agents, independent voice over artists (with their own broadcast standard suites for self recording), sound designers... all managed by our experienced production team from our production base in London, and hosted in the ether to create..

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

We have spent many years with our advertising clients in Soho audio post facilities, and while we also love to order sushi and coffee from a comfy sofa…

Welcome to Virtual Sound, the smartest way to find and remotely record voice talent for all types of content. We find the perfect voice, direct and record them remotely and deliver the final takes, along with the rest of your audio, ready to go live while you get on with the rest of production.

About

It’s not easy to find the perfect voice for your project… briefing agents, booking studios and talent, moving sessions…    We have mastered this workflow so that your casting, recording and usage are one simple process, handled remotely by our producers. 

We are so much more than a voice agency

We work closely with voice agents and independent talent to curate the ultimate professional network.
Content producers spend hours briefing multiple voice agents, listening to hundreds of voice reels, negotiating usage fees… we simply do all this for you, leaving you to focus on the creative choices and the rest of the production. Our experienced team distills and distributes your brief, sources voice reels from our global network of 100’s of agents and independent voices, and delivers you a small selection of relevant examples which fit your brief and budget. We then negotiate usage terms and execute licenses on your behalf.

You receive one invoice for the whole process

We really believe in finding the best voice talent for your brief. Whether it’s a recognisable celebrity voice, an experienced voice actor with hundreds of commercials under their belt, fresh new talent, or an unusual request that requires some real digging.. we will find the perfect voice from one of our partner voice agencies or our network of award winning, self-recording independent voice artists, then set up a session and produce the sound to completion for you (you can, of course, dial in if needed).
So, if you’re looking for the best way to record voices remotely, give us a call and we will put together a quote for your project. Whether small and simple or big and complex.

We look forward to hearing from you

    We dialled everyone in from different locations to guide the VO and bagged the takes we needed in an hour. Handed the recordings over to one of our engineers and delivered a broadcast mix on the same day.

    The film has been lovingly recreated in minute detail by Rumble Productions. They even used the same actors, and the original aspect ratio ! Only difference being...  vodka instead of milk.  Brilliant.

    For us this is the perfect way to let people know about our non-musical sound services. A fairly simple job, with no music. All Foley, sound and broadcast mix by Thirty Two.

This is exactly what imagination asked us to do for a Jaguar product launch in Miami. It's a big, dramatic, electronic 'trailer' style track with massive hits and building intensity. The product reveal is the finale of the whole event so needed to carry real weight. Unfortunately we couldn't attend the event but we're told it sounded huge and had the desired effect.

    No video for this one as the event was top secret but you can hear the track over the logo end frame here.

What you hear in the spot is the result of combining several different types of well placed microphones and mixing the results in post.

"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 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 are fantastically knowledgeable, helpful and personable, which is exactly what you need! You feel completely catered for, with any and all questions being quickly answered, and the full level of support is fantastic. As a Producer, it is wonderful to work with people who feel like such a brilliant asset to the production, who bring the answers, and of course, the perfect sounds!"

Siobhán Daly, Freelance Producer

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

"Virtual Sound bring a high level of knowledge and creativity to all the projects I’ve worked on them with. They are hardworking and solution orientated, always finding a way to get things done no matter the budget or time restrictions! They  are also just the nicest guys to work with!!"

Felicity Cruickshank, Producer, Splash Worldwide

"VS is so easy to use and the process is simple and organised and it saves me time as a producer as I don't need to attend the sound mix and I know they will deliver a top quality product"

Alice Windeler, Producer, SALT.TV

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

"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"
