The Overcast Room
at Cloud Studios in Seattle, WA
The Overcast Room is a podcast recording studio conveniently located in the heart of Seattle's Capitol Hill Pike/Pine corridor. We've served over 50 clients, from businesses operating branded podcasts to individuals of all experience levels looking to bring their ideas to life. Our producers will help you find your niche and create a unique show suited to your voice.
TIER 1 - RAW AUDIO, STUDIO ONLY
The room is yours. Our most basic offering gives you full access to the sound-isolated studio and the audio equipment (four condenser microphones, studio headphones, and a 12-channel audio mixer). You record to your laptop and take home the raw audio from your session.
Note: For a successful Tier 1 session, please follow the steps here to prepare your laptop. Not following these steps could lead to loss of audio, and with no engineer on-site, this can ruin your session.
TIER 2 - finished AUDIO WITH A Producer
Add a professional touch. Come in with an idea, sit in front of the microphone, and we’ll make your vision come to life. A producer will join you in studio to mix your show live and offer production help along the way. We make sure your audio sounds exactly the way you want it to.
Editing services are also available. Working off your direction, we create a finished product for you to publish and share.
$100/hr in-studio; $50/hr for editing
à la carte - Production work

You have a brilliant idea for a podcast, you found us, and you're ready to bring it to life. You're looking to create 10 episodes. The Overcast Room's flexible pricing gives you a wide range of options.
10 session block
Option 1: Cost saver, $500
10 hours of studio time: $500 (Tier 1 rate)
Option 1 is the cheapest option. You're an expert with a sound board, you have your own recording software, and you know how to edit your shows so they sound exactly like you want them to. If you're recording half-hour episodes, we recommend you book an hour per episode so you have 10 hours with our professional equipment. This allows guests to arrive, get seated, and have a full conversation. This will also give you time to record any intros, outros, or advertisements you have. We let you in the door 10 times, and you leave with your show, built from scratch by yourself.
Option 2: Production help, $1000
10 hours of studio time with a producer: $1000 (Tier 2 rate)
Option 2 includes a producer that will use the sound board to make sure the audio is perfect and offer production help along the way. You don't have to worry about mixing audio or operating the recording software -- you can just focus on the content. At the end of each session, we'll send you all of the raw audio we record, and you edit and distribute it yourself.
Option 3: Light editing, $1500
10 hours of studio time with a producer: $1000
10 hours of editing: $500 (Tier 2 rate)
Option 3 is the best option for most people. We take the editing work off your hands and give you 10 finished episodes. 10 hours of editing is a fairly light edit, enough time to add intro/outro music and take out any glaring mistakes or large chunks of content you don't want in your show when it's published.
Option 4: Fine Combed Editing, $2500
10 hours of studio time with a producer: $1000
30 hours of editing: $1500
Option 4 allows us to edit each episode to adjust for subtle volume and pitch discrepancies, take out any vocal tics ("umms" and "yeahs"), and remove long pauses to fine tune your show into exactly the voice you're looking for. You have 10 polished episodes at the end of this package.
Ala carte: $50/hour
At this rate, we take care of any other production needs you have, including distribution to iTunes/Stitcher/etc, analytics for your show, advertising, a web presence, and anything else you need.
