Audiobook Recording Studio

Whether you’re an author or a publisher, audiobooks are a fantastic way to share a written work to the world.

Audiobooks are accessible for those with disabilities, help people multitask while they read, and are increasingly popular with just about everyone else. Audiobooks help readers of all ages keep up with their favorite books, even when they’d rather avoid physical copies. Of course, making your own audiobook can be a pretty serious task.

For starters, you often need a serious amount of time in front of a microphone. The average audiobook is about 10 hours of audio, and those are just the takes that make it into the final product. All that recording takes time, then you need someone with audio editing experience to build that raw file into a finished audiobook your readers will love.

Audiobooks are massively popular, and can sometimes be responsible for the success of novels, textbooks, periodicals, and more. Not to mention, the results can be very rewarding. Don’t let the production process deter you or your team from creating an audio version of your upcoming publication, let Half Coast Studios do the hard work for you.

A lot of work goes into producing an audio version of a novel or non-fiction book, but we can help you every step of the way.

Simple Audio Publication

Building an audio program of any kind shouldn’t have to be so stressful. Many creative people are intimidated by microphone jargon, soundproofing design, and the overall investment associated with building an audiophile’s playground in your home office. These are common concerns we hear from our clients, but don’t worry!

At Half Coast Studios, our expert audio engineers are ready to record high-quality audio books in just about any recording setup possible. Whether you have a single reader or a cast of vocalized characters, our studios are ready to accommodate you and your team.
