RECORDING / EDITING
Our recording, production, & engineering experience and expertise has helped hundreds of bands, singer/songwriters, vocalists, & musical theatre performers create exceptional recordings here at Lana Banana Studios, whether it be for EP's, albums, showreel's, demo's, or just personal pleasure.
As well as providing one of the warmest, most enjoyable and comfortable working environment's you will find in any studio, our team of engineers and producers are not just audio engineers, but professional working musicians in their own right, and therefore carry the creative prowess & musical intuition to give your recordings the edge.
We specialise in recording & production for pristine vocals, & real instruments & sounds.
Our art is working with genres such as musical theatre, indie, folk, acoustic singer/songwriters, & pop/rock, whilst from time-to-time we do also work with rap & hip-hop artists who provide their own beats.
Whether it be for television, radio, a tutorial audiobook or podcast, we have a sterling reputation for our voiceover recording quality with both male and female voices, young and old, with our most regular client being BBC One.
Our dedicated voiceover suite is tailored for professional recording, with a clothed pine table, adjustable lectern, monitor for picture, cue light, additional page lighting, and our fully adjustable Herman Miller Aeron chair offering ultimate comfort for long sessions.
Free bottled water, pens, & tissues are also included for VO artists as standard.
You are welcome to provide your own artist, or we are happy to source one for you, and we can either record wild (straight script), or record to client provided picture (video).
External producers are very welcome to dial in on the session to direct using either Source-Connect, Source-Connect Now, ISDN, ipDTL, Skype, or our exclusive studio conference call line, and we are also very happy to work with post-production houses who simply require the bare WAV's or Pro Tools session upon completion of the recording.
Source-Connect is an industry-standard, internet-based ISDN replacement which simply enables us to record and communicate with musicians, talent & producers in real-time, across the globe.
Feature-rich and fully integrated with our Pro Tools Ultimate system, Source-Connect enables us to record talent in our studio, whilst an external producer can listen in and communicate throughout the session in real-time with no Skype-like delay, whilst also viewing the picture on their system, live, if picture is being used (with a voiceover artist, for instance)..
Particularly useful for television show and record producers at other Source-Connect studios and post-production houses, Source-Connect also provides Remote Transport Sync (RTS), for remote synchronization of recording sessions such as television show audio overdubbing, real-time video synchronization, contacts management, and Instant Messaging features.
Lana Banana Studios are an official Certified Source-Connect Pro studio - One of only 34 to be awarded certified status in the UK by Source Elements, out of almost 3,000 UK-based Source-Connect users.
VOICEOVER ARTIST HIRE
Hiring an unknown voiceover artist through a random agency you found on Google, can be a tentative & laborious task.
How do you know you can trust their recording quality if they're recording from home or another studio? Are they going to be easy to work with? Are you going to be paying huge additional agency fee's?
This is where we come in.
Our sterling reputation within the industry has enabled us to put together a small roster of voiceover artists that we have previously worked with here at Lana Banana Studios who we have hand-picked and made available for hire to you, directly through us, removing the need to trawl through hundreds of voices on an agency website, and pay over-the-top agency fee's!
Our pool of recommended talent are all artists who are not only exceptional, versatile voice actors in their own right, most with a professional acting background, but are also familiar with our studio, our team & our setup, are generally within easy driving distance from the studio, and come fully backed & recommended by us. They are also affordable.
Prices for the hire of our voiceover artists start from just £120/hr inc VAT, with no hidden fee's.
Take a listen to the talent demo reels of all our artists on our Voiceover Artist Hire page, and just drop us a line if you hear someone you think you may like for your next project.
SONG PRODUCTION / SONG DEVELOPMENT
A popular service for songwriters & vocalists who perhaps have limited instrument ability, but wish to turn their songs and lyrics into a finished product, mixed and mastered, with full instrumentation.
We have had the pleasure of working with numerous songwriters in that very situation, some of whom have merely presented us with a lyric sheet and hummed a vague melody to us that they have in their head for the song.
Our talented team of producers will work with you on a one-to-one basis to gather your ideas whilst using our experience and know-how to look at the arrangement and structure of your song(s), recommend instrumentation, and source appropriate session musicians that both deliver the required sound, and can be hired for a price that keeps within your budget.
SESSION MUSICIAN HIRE
We have a huge pool of session musician contacts, locally, nationally, and internationally that we know personally, have worked with on previous projects, and importantly, that we trust to deliver professional results for our clients.
Our extensive personal session contact list contains musicians of a multitude of instruments and styles who are available at different price-points (please get in touch to discuss) and can provide the finishing touches to your recordings.
Whether you just need one instrument or a full backing band, we can help. Drop us an email or give us a call today to discuss your requirements.
Just some of the instruments we can provide are:
-Bass Guitar (electric bass)
-Double Bass (upright bass)
-Vocalists (male and female)
If there is an instrument you require that you don't see in the above list, just let us know what you're after, and we can use our contacts to source a trusted and recommended session musician for your desired instrument.
