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
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
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.
