Brandy Adds More Sizzle to LFM, Joe, MNM On Air Sound

The Summer of 2021 made a new mark in radio from the world leader of audio branding BRANDY Jingles. Dubbed the hottest summer yet in the Brandy studios, expect more branding quality staring autumn and the beginning of next year on radio stations all over Europe.

And of course, there had to be a build-up to these warmest months. Ukuleles, ocean drums, slide whistles, congas, bongos, … were brought in and out, so that summer fairly splashes from the radio.

Listen to these sounds for LFM, MNM and Joe. Hear more at www.brandy-jingles.com.

Splat! and Chloe Dolandis are radio imaging forces for USAFA Station’s 50th Year Relaunch

Splat! Radio Imaging, the world’s easy-to-use, library extensive, branding effective radio imaging service and Chloe Dolandis, versatile voice artist and Voice Arts Award nominee, teamed up for the United States Air Force Academy’s (USAFA) 50th Anniversary relaunch of 97.7 KAFA station.

“Rockin’ the controls in a production studio isn’t quite the same as manning the cockpit of a fighter jet, so this might be as close as we ever get!

USAFA recently commissioned SPLAT! to produce custom radio imaging and audio branding for the 50th anniversary relaunch of 97.7 KAFA, “The Academy.” Working on this project was a lot of fun and a real honor.

We love the energy and personality that voice talent Chloe Dolandis brought to the imaging.”

Here are what’s hot and hottest on IMGR imaging highlights.

Your Radio IMGR Tip of the month (courtesy of IMGR team)

Use multi-band compression to iron out those lively frequencies and glue that mix together!

Multi-band compressors compress within a certain frequency range. So if your bottom end needs taming, for example, it can do that without affecting the rest of the mix.

Used properly, it can create consistency and add the finishing shine to your sound. Try it on your next bit of radio imaging and see how it can improve your mix!
