Japanese Narration Service

Studio recording plan that allows flexible production according to needs

The narration/announcement production of i-Pairs Inc. is a studio recording service by experienced voice actors/narrators and professional directors.

Our company’s narration recording is not recorded by a narrator at home, but is always recorded in the studio by a professional director and engineer after the script has been checked in advance and the intonation has been confirmed. Furthermore, after the recording is completed, we perform sound adjustment work using our own noise reduction technology using our own AI, and then deliver it in a form that meets the customer’s request.

In addition to voice recording, this service also supports the addition and editing of original BGM and sound effects, and all processes are performed by professionals to provide high-quality, affordable, and convincing narration sound sources. We also support various foreign languages ​​such as English and Chinese.

So far, we have been used by a great many companies, and there are voice production examples of various genres, so we have absolute confidence in the quality of the deliverables. Please feel free to request a quote by clicking the button below.
