Tape Syncs

Tape syncs, or “double-enders,” are audio productions where an audio engineer records one side of a remote interview using broadcast quality recording equipment while the interview subject speaks (usually over the phone) with an interviewer.

The resulting recording is synchronized with the recording of the host back at the studio, to produce a high-quality two-way conversation without the need for both people to be in the same studio location.

SBN is available to produce tape synchs for podcasters, radio stations, and radio networks. We use Tascam DR-44WL digital audio recorders, Sennheiser shotgun microphones with Røde PG2-R Pistol Grip and dual Rycote Lyre shockmounts.

We are available for tape syncs in New Jersey, eastern Pennsylvania, and Delaware. To book our services for a tape sync, please email steve@statebroadcastnews.com or call +1 (856) 751-5491.
