Horwood Recording Studio

The aim of the Horwood recording studio is to make sure that you can record in a fun and relaxed atmosphere, using modern technology to capture some of the best sound quality available.

Features and benefits

  • The studio is designed mainly for voice over work or to host interviews with up to four people, but we can also record small music ensembles as well
  • Our rooms have been acoustically treated to optimise the environment for vocal work by the professionals at Sound Acoustics in Melbourne
  • We have the capability to record virtually anyone from anywhere in the world as we can record either via phone, skype or directly to other ISDN equipped studios (such as the BBC in London), which provides quality that is almost equal to the person being in our own studio
  • We can perform recordings for phonetic research as well as language documentation.
  • All recordings are produced to the industry standard protocols, and we can provide you with a recording in any format you require

Around the University more and more academics are doing on air interviews via live crosses to stations such as JJJ, the ABC and BBC radio. The studio is also being used to record Up Close, the University's online, audio talk show of research, opnion and analysis. No matter what your idea, please contact us to see how we can assist you.
