Studio Tickling Tours

Rob offers voiceover artists a unique service – Studio Tickling Tours

The studio consultation part of what I do is very well known, and a staple of my offering. As much as it’s possible to do a lot of things remotely, there are some things that are just nicer to do in person, and some things that can only be done in person.

I offer in-person visits where I can help, advise and offer practical support to voiceovers in their own studios. This is fairly geographically restricted as the travel becomes expensive. But if a number of voiceovers can share those travel costs, it suddenly becomes more plausible.

Studio Tickling Tours are based around a geographical location. I make appointments to go and see voiceover artists in their home-based studios, where I provide a number of services – from giving a studio a once over and a tweak (hence the term ‘studio tickling’) to more comprehensive overhauls, troubleshooting issues and training in software or production techniques.

Rob can also advise you on how to acoustically treat your potential studio if you’re in the process of just setting up or moving house, and the studio tickling visit(s) can be undertaken at any stage of an upgrading/building project.

Although these trips are sort of based in a city, Rob will travel quite far if it’s viable to do so. And he always make stops whilst en route to the main tour location, so you can always ask and see if Rob can pop over to see you while getting from A to B. He’s previously considered Cardiff, Portsmouth, Chelmsford and Leicester as being between Manchester and London.
