How can I use my recordings and what's included?

Updated: 6 days ago

Usage can differ but in general unless other is specified, all recordings in Voicemachine can be used without limitations in time or territory as long as it's non-paid ads. Only paid advertising generally has limits in time and/or territory. This means that after a paid ad campaign a video can still be visible on non-paid ad platforms such as a company youtube channel or website in perpetuity. All recordings in voicemachine also have synchronization rights unless other is specified. This means the voice-over recording is synchronized to the project/film it's intended for. Meaning you can use it freely in the production it was intended for but you can not use the recording or parts of it for another film/project. Also, you can not sell a recording or parts of it as a separate product. For example, a telephone system recorded for a company can not be sold as a product for other companies or a part of a voice-over for a web film can not be used in a radio commercial or another film production without a special permit.

VO for Web Video


VO for Telephone/IVR


VO for Paid Ads / Other




VO for Web Video - Non-paid ads in perpetuity (boost on Social Media at an extra cost)

- Use this for presentations, product films, explainers, events, etc that are not obvious short commercial ads. If your content is an ad for mixed media, short ad with cutdowns etc use the VO for Paid Ads / Other instead and we will help you out with the best solution.

The fixed starting price is for one video (max 500 words) with one voice talent but more words and videos to be recorded in the same session can be added to an extra cost. For multi-language projects or projects with several talents start one project per language/talent.

For very long scripts (more than 1500 words) contact us and we will help you out customizing your project.


Tips! Give the talent instructions on how to read before they start reading to avoid unnecessary retakes. Upload a reference file, refer to a talent demo or just call the talent to discuss how it should be read (sharing contact info in the chat is ok!). Most talents accept listen in during the recording but it's not guaranteed. Also, record and upload a pronunciation guide for difficult names/words/brands, etc when necessary.

You can boost your video on Social Media with an additional license (SoMe Boost ad on). In this license, you are also allowed to use straight cut downs of the original video as boosted ads (no additional reading/message allowed, just a shortened version of the original recorded script).


The project needs to be approved within 15 days after the first recording/delivery of the final script. Thereafter it will automatically be approved.


Pickups can be ordered within 15 days after approval (max 250 words reread). More words or later than 15 days is equal to a new project.
