Sonidos was born in 2004 with the aim of producing audio from an unconventional place. This is perhaps the reason why we don’t meet the classic pattern of a recording studio, with dozens of rooms and hundreds of microphones in drawers as an indicator of quality. Curiosity drives us and we actively explore the possibilities offered by the digital world.
Obviously we do have a recording room and microphones, but we also have collaborators all around the world who work in 36 languages. And obviously we work with great narrators and we know when they transmit a great voice, but we’re not deaf to the potential offered by voice synthesis. At sSonidos we understand audio in a broad sense: sometimes we record it, other times we edit it, occasionally we write it and a few times we do all of that at once. We want to explore all of the routes: the more remote a place that we can reach, the better.
After 17 years of experience watching as the horizon of sound changed, we believe that this is just the beginning.
Are you still not sure? Take a look at what we do
Simply the recording of a book read out loud by a voice actor. It’s that simple and that complicated. For instance: the story your parents told you before going to sleep. The reading of a philosophical essay by a professor from his chair. The novel heard with 10 different voices on the radio. These are all forms of audiobook.
The one that has been produced according to DAISY standard, an accessibility standard that allows for visually impaired people to experience a recording as a paper book, searching, adding notes or high lightening as one would normally do in paper.
It is a voice recording aimed to be heard on streaming principally, and with a shorter duration than an audiobook. Normally, it is conceived as a series of chapters that are recorded daily, weekly or monthly and can be downloaded or listened live. In most podcasts the scriptwriter and the speaker are the same person, and the style is more relaxed and radio-like than in an audiobook. However, as in most instances, things are moving fast and boundaries between products are blurring.
It is the audio recording of a training content. Normally they are used by companies or schools and require quick production times.
