Audio Sorcery recording studios, based on a quiet (unless our window is open), secluded business park between Frant and Wadhust near Tunbridge Wells, has been established since 1999. We’ve recorded many things since we opened our doors, covering all aspects of sound recording, music arranging, multi-track mixing and track mastering. We also provide an audio restoration and/or enhancement service.
From solo artists, singers, songwriters and full band recording of a single, EP, LP album mastered for CD, download & streaming through to commentary-on-picture, voiceover showreels and fully casted audio dramas for worldwide distribution, we have all the necessary equipment, and more importantly the skill and dedication to produce your next project, however big or small, to an impeccably high standard.
We welcome all newcomers to our world of recording and love fascinating people with the mind-blowing technology that our powerful computers can are tasked with. Our Recording Studio Experiences (aka Gift Daze) was created by us for you to treat budding singers, musicians and producers to a professional recording session. Likewise, our Pop Star Parties never disappoint when entertaining groups (4 to 8) of children from the ages of 8+.
We are constantly improving, upgrading and maintaining our studios and equipment. Our collection of quality microphones and headphones are extensive, and our computer technology and software always meet the demands of any project that we are privileged to be a part of.
So whether you are a solo artist, a band, a songwriter, a voiceover artist, a commentator, an interviewer, or in to audio production yourself, we have sound knowledge (excuse the pun!) and knowhow to assist and help you reach your end product.
