Sound Design

Fonic has seven fully equipped Pro Tools HD sound design rooms.

With network access to 6TB of sound effects, our sound designers have a wealth of sounds and inspiration to draw from. Each room has additional sound design tools such as synthesizers, plugins and direct links to the recording spaces for live sound creation. These rooms feed via our gigabit network to the mixing theatre, allowing instant updates and a faster workflow.

Foley Room

Fonic’s purpose-built  air conditioned foley room is hidden deep underground, isolated from extraneous noise.

There are eight custom-built pits divided by a non-resonating concrete grid. Solid surfaces are concreted directly to the ground, making them very firm and dead. Two sinks with running water are fitted in the foley ‘kitchen’,  and even the cupboards are stocked with categorized props.

Award winning foley artists are always on call to provide sounds at short notice. The spacious, custom-built desk can easily accommodate our experienced foley recordist and an editor.

  • We asked for the sound of a piano hitting the ground from a great height. They'd actually recorded one falling from a first floor window! These guys really do go the extra mile to deliver you a fresh, authentic audio design. They love sound and it's evident in all of their work.

Voice Services

Voice Over and ADR is recorded in our relaxing subterranean, air conditioned and fully isolated room.

We offer auditioning, casting  and voice direction, as well as voice over recording and ADR. The director can communicate via their own personal talkback switch, or visually through the large soundproofed window. Picture is simultaneously fed to the artist and director via independent HD screens for sync.

We also offer Source Connect, a facility that enables remote recording and monitoring, so that our clients can listen into the session wherever they are.

  • Fonic are heavenly to work with. They give 'attention to detail' and 'going the extra mile' a whole new level of meaning. I have never enjoyed such reassurance working on a project from 5000 miles away, and cannot be more pleased to see the Monkey King stories coming to life in English with Fonic's magic. As Master Tang would say " Oh thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
