  • I've been recorded over the years by countless people, in countless venues, in many, many, many different ways and I've yet to experience the extraordinary attention given to me by the folks here at Verity Audio. If you're a writer, an author, or somebody who has something important to say come here to say it at Verity Audio.  The word says it all.

  • I was super nervous about recording an audiobook in general, and especially because I had never met the Verner’s or seen Verity Audio studios. They came highly recommended but I was still apprehensive, and all that worrying was absolutely for nothing! From the moment I arrived, everyone was so caring and professional and truly had an interest in my book and the total successful outcome of the project. I cannot say enough about how amazing my family and I were treated, and the end result of the project was nothing short of phenomenal quality. I would highly recommend these people full of integrity and their awesome studio. You will not regret your decision.

  • I had a great experience recording my first audiobook with Verity. Not knowing what I was getting into, they were patient with a first time author and coached me through the cadence needed to narrate an audiobook. They had great attention to detail to make sure my book was top quality. I was so pleased with the final product and would highly recommend Verity for your project.

  • The whole experience of working with Verity is tremendous. The studio itself is beautiful and comfortable, the people are exceptional, and all the work, from narrating to the finished product, is done with a great balance of joy and excellence. It’s truly a pleasure working with Verity.

  • Working with Verity Audio is a huge blessing. I’d never done an audiobook recording before so I was more than a little nervous. I’d heard it was hard and stressful. It was scary at first but the Verners calmed my nerves and brought peace to the atmosphere. The two days of recording became a sweet memory I will cherish for a long time. The space was comfortable, Crissy and Cory made sure I had everything I needed and gently coached me along the way. They made sure no sound got by, that I didn’t recognize. I loved the pace and the way they made sure the recording was excellent. I’ve since recommend that others use them and will continue to. Everyone I know who has used Verity Audio feels the way I do. The service, product, and attention to detail delivers a product that is professional and top notch. They are quick to respond and get shipments out quickly. They have great integrity and treat the book as if it were their own, that is hard to find. I seriously look forward to doing another book so I can spend time with them.
  • I don't even know how to say thank you for Verity Audio for being with me over these last three days. My name is Dr. Sheri Keffer and I'm a first time author. I'm grateful for their care, excellence and expertise in walking through every page of my manuscript. I highly recommend them for anyone who is thinking about doing an audio version of their book.

    I had SUCH a wonderful experience recording the audio version of my book “Everything Is Possible” at Verity Audio Studio!  I felt so at home & cozy! An extremely welcoming environment with impeccable hospitality!  And that’s not even mentioning the stellar quality of the audio, which is, well, stellar!! Thank you very much for bringing my book to life with my voice! Much love!

Self-serve audiobook recording studio

Narrating your own book? Give your listeners the gift of recording in what publishers and professional narrators have called “one of the best sounding rooms in SoCal for recording audiobooks.”

Our beautiful boutique book recording studio is specifically designed and engineered to be quiet, comfortable, and creatively inspiring. All you have to do is show up, and we’ll take care of the rest. Here’s what you can expect from the experience:

Whisper-quiet

Our recording studio is a “room within a room,” which means we’ve built an entire extra layer of sound protection on all four sides. The walls are more than a foot thick, the alternating studs don’t touch or conduct sound, the windows are triple-paned, and our insulation is thick, premium rock wool.

What does this mean for you? A professional quality audiobook recording that even the quietest of outside sounds won’t interrupt.

Comfortable environment

We spend several hours a day in our studios, and it’s a priority for us and our authors that the space is comfortable and inspiring. To that end, we’ve done XYZ to make it a place we love to arrive at each morning, and a place that our clients love to return to again and again.

And it doesn’t hurt that San Diego and all it has to offer are right outside!

Affordable rates

Rent our space by the hour, ½, or full day. We’ll help you determine how much time you’ll need.
