Do you record directly onto my voice mail / answering machine?

We can provide the audio track(s) in formats for your PABX switchboard system (CCITT or PCM WAV) for direct 'uploading'. But for domestic systems or mobile phones, we just provide you with the high quality audio track. It is up to you to record it onto your machine or voicemail service.

How do I record the voice track you send me onto my voice mail / answering machine?

If you have an advanced PABX switchboard / phone system which allows uploading of CCITT or PCM WAV files (or indeed PC based answerphone software), you can upload the file directly. If you haven't heard of this, then your answerphone will probably just have an in-built microphone up to which you can direct a speaker to play the audio we send, or hold your phone handset up to a speaker. Each one is different. Experimentation may be required to get the best sound.

How long will it take for you to send me the voice track?

It can be anything from 12 hours to a week, depending on how busy the studio is. Normally, simple reads are done within 24 - 48 hours, but music mixes do take longer. See the question below!

Why are you so cheap?

We are an "outlet store" of voice-overs ... a great place to get professional custom voice tracks at a fraction of the price they would cost you anywhere else.

Buying voice tracks from us is not unlike buying a plane ticket online. You’ll save money, but you won’t have a salesperson to help you. That’s just one of the reasons why we can sell custom voice tracks for a really low price. Here’s another.

There’s an old saying; ‘You can get it good, cheap or fast’....pick any two. With eVoiceovers, you get them ‘good and cheap’...but not necessarily fast. It may take up to 48 hours to get your tracks depending on studio demand.

All voice tracks are produced in our state-of-the-art soho studios.

But when you do most of the legwork and allow us more flexibility in scheduling your session, you can save a bundle.

If you need your voice tracks "fast and good", email us (you will be charged extra for a faster service). If you need "cheap and fast" well, sorry...we can’t help you there.
