AUDIO FOR BITE-SIZED BUDGETS

Not all budgets are equal, but the quality of the audio can be.

If you’re someone who is creating great videos on an economical budget, often directly for your client, we know you’re doing it all! But, you don’t want your end product to scream “cheap”…and the audio is often a dead giveaway. It’s assumed that to get audio done right it’s going to break the bank. So you mix the audio yourself but the sound quality probably isn't as good as it could be.

Red Amp can help. We can elevate your storytelling with great audio. We have the tools and the expertise to make your videos stand apart from the rest. And the best part? We make it easy and affordable.

SNACKS! Audio packages you choose, based on the audio focus needed for your project. You can mix and match as you see fit. Pick the amount of time you want us to work based on your budget and/or on the total running time of your project.

Recommended minimums:

  • 1 hour Audio Mixing per minute of video
  • 1 - 2 hours Sound Design per minute of video

About Red Amp Audio

Red Amp Audio

Red Amp Audio is a state-of-the-art recording studio located in the heart of historic downtown Richmond, VA. Founded in 2001, Red Amp features three audio recording suites, a two-story tracking room, an isolation booth, and some of the finest vintage, analog and modern gear around. Whether you are a podcaster, a band or recording artist looking to lay down tracks, an indie film in need of sound design or mixing, or if you want to create TV or radio commercials, this is the place for you.

Our cutting-edge facility was designed by award-winning architect Peter Grueneisen, FAIA, whose projects have included studios for DreamWorks Animation, Sony Music Entertainment Japan, the Dave Matthews Band, and film composer Hans Zimmer. Grueneisen's innovative design for Red Amp Audio, incorporating environmentally friendly cotton insulation and wood, was nominated for a prestigious TEC (Technical Excellence & Creativity) Award for outstanding creative achievement in acoustics/facility design and was featured on the cover of Mix Magazine's Studio Design Class of 2010 as one of the year's hottest new studios.
