Central Location

Offbeat's Voiceover Recording Studio is bang in the centre of Edinburgh in the world famous Royal Mile. There we provide top quality, professional audio and voiceover recording services for projects large and small for television, film, independent & multi-media companies.

Offbeat Voices

We record, edit and produce sound for all audio-visual projects including podcasts, film dubbing & audio-books. We can also provide a great range of Voice Artists for your project and can help you find the right voice for your audio and audio-visual programmes.


We have recorded countless Voice Overs here at Offbeat since we had the amazing opportunity to record The Story Of Film, an Odyssey back in 2010. That involved recording and editing all 15 x one hour episodes of voice commentary of the award winning documentary series for presenter and film director Mark Cousins.

We've been involved in Audio books, Voice Commentaries for Sound to Picture, ADR sound dubbing, TV & Radio Adverts as well as numerous commercial Voice Over projects for a wide variety of Cinema, Radio & TV productions and multi-media audio applications.

Our growing roster of clients include BBC TV & Radio, Sky TV, Turner Classic Movies, Canongate Books, Penguin, Netflix, Twitter and a large range of Independent producers and audio content creators.

Please take a couple of minutes to watch the Voice Over & Audio Visual Showreel above to get a taste of who we’ve worked with. Offbeat also creates music for film and you can hear examples of that in this showreel too.

Visit our Voice Over Clients section to see a more extensive showreel of work which includes links to some case studies.

No project is too big or small at Offbeat, so please feel free to Contact Us or call us on 0131 556 4882 to find out more about how we can assist you with your audio productions.
