Digital Audio Workstation We currently use Avid's Pro Tools HDX Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) for all our voice-over recording, editing and processing. Why? The reason is simple. It's the industry standard for all professional post-production studios; that includes voice over facilities. There are several reasons for this:

  • Pro Tools is the most feature laden DAW available
  • Pro Tools 12 HDX now comes with the much faster off-line bounce - saves clients studio time and money!
  • Multitrack audio editing - applying edits to multiple tracks simultaneously - saves time
  • Workflow: It is simply faster, easier, and more productive
  • Superb quality, dedicated hardware - both consoles and interfaces
  • The standard platform for recording ADR due to its video integration
  • Works on both Mac & PC - take your session to any Pro Tools studio and it will load seamlessly

Audio Clean Up and Restoration We have a number of plug-ins that address the problem of sub-standard voice over audio recording which is brought into the studio by clients desperate for a fix. Pops, clicks, location recording noise, mains hum, mouth noises, plosive hits and breaths can all be intrusive. The Waves Restoration bundle (part of the studio's top Waves package, Mercury) includes the useful Z-Noise, X-Noise, X-Hum, X-Click, and X-Crackle, and their De-Breath processor can certainly be a time saver. Izotope Nectar's Breath Control module can also be helpful as can Wave Arts Dialog.

However, we find the most useful software bundle by far to be Izotope's RX4 Advanced. This is really excellent at many aspects of audio clean-up, restoration and repair:

  • Dialog De-Noiser - restore problematic vocal recordings in real time
  • Spectral repair - visually isolate and remove unwanted sounds
  • Intelligent Leveler - sets levels to optimum gain, thus saving time
  • Loudness - ensures compatibility with international broadcast standards 
  • Ambience Match - matches the environment noise of recordings from different locations
  • EQ Match - matches the sonic differences of audio from different locations
  • Dereverb - removes unwanted reverb from recordings
  • Denoise - Adaptive Mode allows fast, efficient audio repair on the fly
  • Declick & Decrackle - eliminate clicks, crackles, pops and digital impulse noises 
  • Hum Removal - eliminates electrical hum and line noise
  • Declip - can rebuild distorted audio, both analog and digital

Remote Session Direction For clients unable to attend sessions in person, we offer a very cost effective alternative to the usually expensive and outdated ISDN link-up. Remote direction via Skype and telephone is now an inexpensive or, using Skype, free option. Both our telephone patch and Skype link provide a direct live hook up to the studio engineer, other attendees and the voice-over actor. As communication is two way you can both monitor the session as it progresses and give feedback to the voice artist - just as you would if you were present in the studio. We've had telephone patch, Skype and Source Connect all running simultaneously to the USA, Canada and Europe without problem. For those on slightly higher budgets, we offer Source Connect Pro link-ups to suitably equipped studios around the globe at no extra charge. Both Source Connect and, to a slightly lesser degree Skype, produce generally excellent quality audio monitoring and are to be recommended over the lower quality standard telephone patch. 

Specialist ADR Software Want to make the ADR process as seamless as possible? When it comes to dialog replacement, it can sometimes be a challenge to replicate the timing, nuance and expression captured in the original location recording and then recreate it in a dubbing session. Revoice Pro can automatically and instantly transfer the timing, pitch, intonation or loudness features from one signal to another. This is perfect for syncing ADR. We unreservedly recommend this application for dubbing voice to picture.
