ADR Recording Studios At Media City Manchester


We offer professional ADR recording at Media City Manchester with experienced engineers for a smooth session.

We have a range of microphone options and offer the Sennheiser MKH60 and Sanken COS 11 as standard, with additional microphones available on request.

Our air conditioned studios are designed with plenty of natural light, professional acoustic treatment and intelligent lighting systems to enhance the performance and inspire the talent in delivering an exceptional ADR recording. Guests are well looked after with comfortable sofa seating, high speed WiFi and complimentary tea, coffee and soft drinks.

We run the latest Pro Tools software and video monitoring systems for Director, Engineer or Dialogue Editor playback. The process is set up to run as efficiently as possible with use of the Emmy Award winning EdiCue and EdiPrompt software. We can customise text prompts, streamers, swipes, counters and audio beeps, along with useful recording and playback statuses.

With ISDN, Source Connect, ipDTL, Skype and TBU connections we can sync with any studio all over the world, allowing communication with the Director or Dialogue Editor from a location of their choice.

ADR files and the session project will be delivered immediately after via secure FTP, or alternative upload systems.

We’re located at Tomorrow, opposite the Media City multi-story car park only a short walk away from the BBC and ITV. Convenient transport links make our location perfect for those travelling from Manchester City Centre and the North West.

All rates include an engineer, secure audio delivery, domestic ISDN line charges and a line test prior to the session. We know schedules and deadlines can be tight so we’ll always try our best to accommodate last minute and off-peak bookings.

“A London based production company needed to conduct a group ADR session with ten children and teenagers based in Manchester. We could easily accommodate this in our large ADR booth. Sounds in Sync’s EdiPrompt allowed us to create customisable visual and audio cues. We connected to the London studio via Source Connect Pro and were able to perfectly sync picture between our sessions with RTS. We then securely delivered the session to the production company promptly after the session.”
