Podcast Recording Services

Based in Tucson, Arizona, we travel to locations around the Old pueblo to record audio on location such as podcasts, training products, lectures, one-off audio guides, trade shows, poetry recitals, audio books, hypnotherapy CD’s, and corporate interviews.

Our location recording service is flexible and can be used for a number of purposes. We come to your location with professional recording equipment to record one or more people for the purpose of producing a finished audio program.

Whether the audio is for promotion or marketing, educational, souvenir or just record of an event, we can record for a number of scenarios in various locations. We also have the skills to mix and match audio from a number of locations into one audio file.

On completion of the location recording session, we edit the raw material back at our production studio to produce a professional sounding piece of audio and deliver it for your approval.

The Location Recording Experience

We provide an on location recording service where we come to you and record your podcast material with the minimum of hassle. Typically, our service avoids the stress and hassle that can be involved in going to a recording studio.

We have a one-take policy, which means that we just keep recording and edit out mistakes during the editing / production stage. Recording on location means that you can do as many retakes as you like and we will sort out the edits back at our production suite.

When we are happy with the sonic quality of the audio, we send you a downloadable version for your approval. We can then tweak it until you are completely happy with it.

 

Who can use this Recording Service?

Anyone who wants to have a professional podcast or audio program recorded. This could be for corporate podcasts, meetings, training, interviews, sporting events, anything that you need recorded on location.

 

Podcast Recording Services

Podcasting is the term used to describe the act of broadcasting audio content online.

Podcasts are usually created in a series or as a season and are rarely one off events.

Many amateur podcasters record their own podcasts in order to develop a fan base whereas business podcasts tend to be produced to a much higher quality with the aim of attracting new clients and business by developing brand awareness and demonstrating expertise and openness via the podcast platform.

This form of media is most effective when it provides good and useful information that is given freely with minimal sales content.

Although it is possible to sell podcasts, this is usually only achieved by high profile individuals, for example, Ricky Gervais had a very successful podcast that started free and then became a paid for download as soon as they realized that it would generate revenue.

For people / companies with a lesser profile you can still sell podcasts, however, it is often more accepted to repackage these as courses or premium content.

A podcast needs to be delivered via an RSS compliant website using scalable hosting, which is best achieved with a custom built WordPress blog using cloud hosting.

If you would like to discuss the feasibility of your podcast let’s have a chat today.

Audio is great for listening during downtime and can be listened to while multitasking… working in the office, travelling to work etc.

Audio can be paired with Pictures on YouTube to make a free formed show.

Choosing music for your podcast is very important. No business podcaster wants to get into trouble by violating international copyright law.

Ordering / Payments

PayPal – The safer, easier way to pay online!

Bookings are subject to availability on a first come first served basis and will be confirmed upon receipt of payment.

If extra time is needed for editing or recording, this can be added on an ad hoc basis, however, full payment will be required before audio master files are delivered.

 

Audio provided for assessment and editing purposes will be watermarked with a copyright notice. These watermarks will be removed upon receipt of payment.

 

Bulk bookings can be arranged as a pre-agreed standing order schedule against proposed booking dates.

 

Cancellations and Rescheduling

At least 7 working days’ notice is required for cancellations or rescheduled bookings. Booking a session(s) means that a chunk of time is allocated to your booking. If you reschedule or cancel with short notice we cannot simply reallocate that time and this represents a loss of income to our business. For this reason we reserve the right to retain the booking fee if you cancel with short notice. Rescheduled bookings must be rescheduled within 60 days.

 

Before booking a session with us please make sure this date is definite. We operate on a tight schedule and as our income is generated from our time we ask that you respect and understand this before making a booking. You are booking the service of our time which, unlike a physical product cannot be returned for a refund.

 

Completion Times

Once we have recorded your live material, we will schedule in editing time to get your initial proofs back to you as quickly as possible. We work on numerous audio projects simultaneously, which means that we have to efficiently schedule editing and production times in order to consistently deliver a high standard product.

We aim to deliver proofs to you within 5 working days; however, this can often be much sooner, typically 2-3 working days for single podcast bookings. If there is anything that may cause unforeseeable delays beyond 5 working days, we will inform you straightaway.

If you need your audio quickly, please inform us prior to your recording session. We will do our best to accommodate by booking your editing time well in advance.

 

Coverage, Travel & Parking

We are based in Tucson and currently only provide this service within the Southern Arizona region, but will consider travelling further afield on a case by case basis. Any parking, toll or congestion charges incurred will be added to your bill.

 

 Podcast Marketing

Podcast marketing is a specialist business area of its own. As an audio recording and production company, we do not offer podcast marketing services; we only produce the audio. If you are interested in using a third party marketing company, we would be happy to advise you on what to look for.

It is possible to do your own podcast marketing if you do not wish to hire a third party specialist company. If this is your chosen route, we can provide you with some resources and blog articles to get you headed in the right direction. Hosting As with podcast marketing, hosting is a specialist area that we don’t cater for, however, we would be happy to have an exploratory chat with you and possibly point you in the right direction depending on your specific requirements.
