“The most fun comes from Author Neil Hayward’s accent and wit, both delivered authentically by narrator Sam Devereaux. When Hayward travels with an array of American bird-watchers, Devereaux continues to present an impressive range of accents.”

Flying Pickle Studio

Flying Pickle’s studio features a high-end, custom designed recording booth designed to the same spec as those used by the BBC and Sony. The space is both quiet and acoustically impressive, ensuring that whoever works there will receive a broadcast quality recording.

Flying Pickle uses UK-designed Sontronics microphones to capture every tiny detail of the narrator’s performance. The sound is captured using an Audient iD4 pre-amp, Samson C-Control room matrix and an Apple M1 Mac.

I want to hear your story

At the heart of Flying Pickle’s audiobook production services is the simple human voice.
Despite all our impressive technology we don’t believe that all the emerging Text-To-Speech and Voice AI technology 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, please rest assured that when you engage Flying Pickle for your audiobook project the voice you hear will be a real, live human one and never a simulation.

Author Participation

Sometimes you just must express yourself! If you have written a book and want to narrate it yourself, Flying Pickle can make it happen.
