How Flying Pickle’s Production Process Works
We are able to provide authors and publishers with a comprehensive start-to-finish production service. Encompassing voice casting, recording, proofing, editing and mastering you can trust Flying Pickle to deliver a superb, broadcast quality recording.
Authors and publishers are welcome to present us with a narrator of their own selection. We then can record with them remotely using Source Connect or welcome them to our South West London studio. Alternatively we are happy to help you find the perfect narrator via our extensive contacts in the industry.
Once the recording sessions are completed we can undertake our meticulous post production process. Proofing is achieved using a combination of Pozotron and one of our selected proofers. Then we can arrange a pickup session with the books narrator. Once the corrections have been recorded we then edit the book together and master each chapter to meet the standards set by you chosen distribution platform.

Our Audio Production is always a human experience
At the heart of Flying Pickle’s audio production service is the simple human voice. So, despite all our impressive technology we don’t believe that all the emerging Text-To-Speech and Voice AI technology should or will ever replace the nuance and intimacy of a real human being telling a story to other human beings.
Human storytelling is a tradition dating back thousands of years. This means you can rest assured that when you engage Flying Pickle for your audiobook project the voice you hear will be a real, live, brilliant human one and never a simulation.
