  • POST EDL: Tip 8 - Recording Voice Over Or ADR
    Recording VO Tip 1: Avoid Using Expansion Or Gates When recording voice-overs or ADR, do NOT use expansion or a gate (even if you have rumbling air con) - it makes the noise floor variable in level and therefore harder to track when using Cedar DNS One or with iZotope RX3 when mixing.Sort the problem at source - or after the recording, not during.Recording VO Tip 2: Dealing With Clicky VoicesDoes you recording talent have a clicky palette? Give them water with lemon juice or a tart green apple, and the acid will activate their saliva glands and reduce the stickiness (their stomachs will also gurgle less!)Recording VO Tip 3: Always Name TracksAlways name your VO recording track with the VO Artist’s name as well as the programme or episode name. When you forget their name (due to session pressure or Alzheimer’s) it enables you to have a look and see. Also, months down the line, when you think “ah yes that’s the voice I would recommend” to one of your other clients, you have a record. It also helps if you suffer from stray files! Recording VO Tip 4: Fader EtiquetteWhen voice recording, fade up your DME fader from standing starts - it is much less jarring to the talent to hear the start faded up rather than a hard loud instant start. I learned to this when I was a lad (a long time ago - almost in the era of valves….) when the video desk was master, and the multitrack would slew into lock under synchroniser control (which was very unpleasant to listen to). The Pro tools 11 AVID fade up causes recordings to have fades too - so be careful.Recording VO Tip 5: Dealing With Pop BlastsIs the VO a bit poppy? Tried a foam windshield and a “stocking filter”? Then a pencil blu tacked in front of the capsule on an LDC mic can help prevent pops by diverting the airflow. Failing that, try an omni mic pattern rather than cardioid. Recording VO Tip 6: Use ScriptsLearn a set of annotation: I use the following: Pr - pronunciationPF - performanceleft arrow  - move earlierright arrow - move laterGM  - gap in the middle requiredGS - gap at the start requiredGE - gap at the end requiredT - timing (usually related to picture)R  - retake required? - listen againSo there’s my tips - what are yours?

  • Acon Digital Restoration Suite £39 - 33% Discount
    We have seen with the Acon Digital plug-ins we have offered so far, that they are able to produce plug-ins that perform well above their price point and the Restoration Suite is no exception.What’s In The Restoration Suite?Digital Restoration Suite consists of four audio restoration and noise reduction plug-ins that are the result of several years of research within the field of noise reduction and audio restoration algorithms:DeNoise is a plug-in designed to reduce stationary noise, such as broadband noise, hiss, wind noise, buzz and camera noise. Great efforts have been put into preserving as much of the original signal as possible during the noise reduction process. As a result, DeNoise can reduce or in many cases completely remove the noise in a very transparent manner without loss of transients, attacks or “air” in the recording.DeHum targets hum and buzz typically introduced by poorly grounded electrical equipment, but also other tonal noise sources like electrical motor noise.DeClick is designed to remove impulsive noise such as clicks and crackle. These distortions are frequently encountered on LP and 78 RPM records, but also occur in digital recordings due to drop-outs or distorted data packets.DeClip restores audio recordings distorted by analog or digital clipping.Acon Digital Restoration Suite is available in 32 and 64 bit versions, as AAX or VST for both Windows and OS X or as AU plug-ins for OS X.

  • Exclusive First Look At Universal Audio Studio 610 - Modern Studio Design With Classic Vintage Studio Gear
    During a recent trip to California Pro Tools Expert were invited to have an exclusive first look at the new Universal Audio Studio 610 in Scotts Valley. At the time of visiting we were told by our buddies at UA that we were the first press to visit and get the tour.We thought we couldn’t let the visit pass without taking a few snaps, so here are some of the new studio and also of some of the actual studio hardware used to model some of your favourite plug-ins.The StudioThe best way to sum up UA Studio 610 is part studio, part museum, part mad-professor’s lab. The team at UA actually sit in a real studio environment when coming up with ideas and testing the products - these are ideas that are born in recording studios not boardrooms.As you can see from the images below the design is beautiful, the attention to detail for both the acoustics and the aesthetics is stunning, right down to the vintage gear knobs as light switches.Mission control, one of two identical control rooms, all of which are fully connected to one another. These control rooms have both top recording equipment and test equipment so that the Universal Audio team can run audio and measurement tests.The live room, designed to offer an number of positions for capturing the sound, when we were there a drum kit was set up in the space.The walls are a work of art, offering great acoustics and at the same time expressing a thing of beauty.The attention to detail we have come to expect from Universal Audio, a vintage hardware knob used for the light switch.Classic Vintage Studio Recording HardwareIf you’ve ever wanted to see the real James Bond Aston Martin or an equally iconic piece of pop history, then imagine how cool it is to see the actual Neve 1073, the ATR102 or EP34 Tape machine that were used to create the UAD versions. Many of them are all in this studio, here are some of them below.More vintage gear than you can shake a stick out, just a tiny selection of the hardware we saw at UA HQ.The actual 1073 used for the UAD powered 1073 plug-in.The ATR-102 tape machine many have come to love on their mixes.A vintage Echoplex tape delay machine.Universal Audio’s Lev Perrey stands with the Studer A800 tape machine, thanks to UAD we don’t all need one of these in our studios anymore.

  • The Plug-ins You Use Are An Important Factor When Choosing A Pro Tools DSP Solution
    Our recent article regarding making a choice for a DSP powered Pro Tools rig seemed to resonate with a lot of you. We’ve had a lot of discussions with users both on and off the blog regarding the decision to go DSP.As a follow up, we wanted to talk about how the plug-ins you use may greatly influence which DSP powered platform you use.In our earlier article we covered the issues of huge track counts often needed in sound stages and large studios, we also discussed the need for low latency monitoring at large track counts, so we won’t be going off that ground again.In this article we are mainly going to talk about the plug-ins you use in your Pro Tools sessions, as this plays a large part in how DSP resources are consumed, especially in mixing.We also talked about virtual instruments in our earlier article, in most cases DSP processing is nigh on pointless in this situation as so few VIs (almost zero) run on DSP chips.So the plug-ins you use may well determine which route you take.UAD Powered Plug-insIf you are mainly using UAD plug-ins then it makes a lot of sense to run Pro Tools natively and then use UAD cards in their various forms as well as the hugely popular Apollo - which allows for near-zero latency with plug-in monitoring on the tracks.Waves DiGiGridThe same can be said if you are mainly using Waves plug-ins, then DiGigrid can be used to power a lot of your Waves plug-ins. What must be made clear is that native Waves plug-ins do not work on DigiGrid and need to be upgraded to SoundGrid, for many this is an additional cost, so please check before you make the leap to calculate the total outlay of making this switch.DigiGrid works in two ways, Pro Tools HD hardware and natively. If you use it with existing Pro Tools hardware then you are going to be using up voice count for the processing of each instance of the Waves StudioRack. If you are running without Pro Tools hardware then you are going to simply use the DigiGrid power, in much the same way you would with UAD.Avid HDXHDX may give you a performance boost, but some of the biggest names in plug-ins have not made the switch to AAX DSP and are highly unlikely to, so if your sessions are full of these plug-in then they will only run in native AAX format. Here’s just a few, including VIs that have NOT gone to AAX DSP.WavesUniversal Audio - UADSlateiZotopeSpectasonicsNative InstrumentsToontrackFabfilterExponential AudioAs you can see there are some big players not on…

  • POST EDL: Tip 7 - Pacing Pacing Pacing…...
    When editing/mixing in post, do not get bogged down on winning a BAFTA for the opening montage (even though I am a judge!). Learn to pass through your mix in layers, gradually improving it. Remember, often you might have no idea that later on in the film there is a last minute inclusion of a mute three minute reconstruction of the D-Day Landings that may take you hours to complete!My WorkflowFor me, when mixing a documenatry or a promo I work in the following way:Start with the Dx (film term for dialogue) and seperate the tracks and get similar interviewees on the same tracks etc to speed up the mix and split out the others into sensible track allocationsThen do another pass through the whole show and do the fade ins and outs of each and every clipThen if you have time another pass where you do any RX3 or other remedial audiosuite workThen mix the sync/dialoguesThen I look at the music editsThen I mix the music against the dialogueLastly I look at the fx. If you short of time, this is where you can compromise as at least you have transmittable dials and music mix (which is often large swathes of the programme).I tend to mix what is there from the edit/AAF/OMF in the first pass - these are the fx that the director and editor are used to hearing in the edit - so you will get “bust” quickly if you miss these out. Familiarity is the key here. I make notes on the fly about where I need to add stuff.Then I go back and then start adding in all the extra bits that would be “nice if you have time”.If a director attempts to get bogged down in a section I often say, “let’s get it transmittable first, I’ll come back to this section and improve it further later”. Later on when the clock is ticking towards the end of their booking and they are paying the bills, they often change their mind about what seemed to be so very important earlier.

  • ADR A Whole Low Budget Film? Sounds In Sync Made It Possible
    Sound designer/editor/mixer Jonah Guelzo was working a low budget/ crowd sourced film recently directed by his brother Joel.  The problem was that there was no consistent location sound so the only solution was to ADR the whole film so Jonah looked around for a creative solution and he teamed up with our friends Sounds In Sync to use their EdiPrompt and EdiCue software to make this ADR process as painless as possible and this video is the story of that journey.

  • Free Powerful Synth And Sequencer Plug-in For Pro Tools And Other DAWs - Kontakt Hosted
    If you own Kontakt then here is an excellent free synth and sequencer plug-in that allows the user to create complex looping arpeggiator patterns and then moprh them. Thanks to community member Glenn Skinner for the tip.Kosmology FreeFallFreeFall is a completely Free version of the powerful Kosmology Sequencing System, which uses 110 Sampled Instruments collected from current Kosmology and Kosmos products to offer a free entry point into the world of Kosmology. Kosmology provides 8 completely separate instances which can be switched in real-time via a specified set of Midi notes. Each instance uses 2 synths with independent Filters, has 7 sequencers with independent clock divides and step amounts as well as 48 assignable parameters. The workflow is enhanced by lots of useful options such as copying, pasting and randomizing and a single instance can be copied to all Instances or to a specific instance. The idea is that you set up the 8 instances and then play them as an instrument as you would with any synthesizer, they are even polyphonic.Kosmology requires Native Instruments Kontakt 5.3 Full Version (it will only work in Kontakt player for 15 minutes).Powerful Sequencing Features8 Instances that can be switched on the fly via Midi. each Instance has:control over 48 Distinct Parameters which include Cutoff, Resonance, Filter and Amp Envelopes Envelopes (Attack, Decay, Sustain and Release), Filter Envelope Amounts, Octave, Various A/B Tune options, FX Sends plus more.Pitch Sequencer – Offsets the root note by -+12 semitones and can Tie notes and mute themVelocity Sequencer – Velocity in turn can be assigned to both Volume and/or the Filter Cutoff5 assignable Sequencers – each of these sequencers can target any of the 46 available Destinations and can like the other synth parameters can be completely different for each of the 8 instances.All sequencers have independent Clock DivisionsAll sequencers have an independent Step Size (maximum 64 steps) which is great for SyncopationDownload InformationTo download Kosmology Freefall click here

  • 5 Things To Think About When Buying A New PC - Part 5 - Upgradability And Future Proofing
    Our culture of mobile devices and tablets is increasingly pushing the idea that every year (or maybe two) we should be ditching the old model and replacing it with a nice, new shiny one. Last season’s model seems so dated and underpowered so quickly – and, would you look at that, all the cool new stuff only seems to run on the new version. With PC’s it doesn’t have to be this way. If you buy a decent machine you should have access to the insides where all sorts of bits and pieces can be improved upon or added to over time. This can stretch the life of your machine to something more like 5 years before it starts feeling a little old. Be aware that some computer manufacturers put warranty seals on their systems to prevent people from getting inside.It should be noted though that certain upgrades have a limited window of opportunity. Intel’s development cycle is about 18 months at which point something new gets introduced that may or may not be compatible with the last generation of motherboards or processors. If that happens then the current generation may vanish quite quickly from the market place and leave you struggling to find a replacement CPU. Other components are more generic and their connections tend to be around much longer. So it’s best to aim as high as you can in terms of processor as it’s the most difficult to upgrade down the line both in terms of availability and the physical fiddliness of removing the old one.Future proofing is kind of a mythical concept which implies that you can somehow buy a machine that won’t need changing or upgrading at any point in the future. There’s no reason why a machine you buy now can’t be doing the same job in 5-10-20 years, but there always seems to be some new feature that appears and tempts us down that never ending upgrade path. There’s really no telling how things will pan out and trying to be content with what you have is good for the pocket, and the soul – yeah, like that’s going to happen! What you can do is ensure that you make the most of the potential of the system you are buying. Here’s some tips on what makes a system easily upgradable:Memory – Find out if there are any slots free for upgrading. A system will commonly have 4 slots for sticks of RAM and the system may support up to 32GB so you’d need 4 x 8GB sticks to fill the slots. If you can only afford 16GB make sure they put in 2 x 8GB and not fill the slots with 4 sticks of 4GB which you would then have t…

  • MIKEROPHONICS Mic Pre-Amp Shoot Out: Neve 8801 Channel Strip vs Focusrite ISA One
    I have in my grubby paws a nice Neve 8801 Channel Strip (thank you to A&E UK) and thought I would record a quick test (in the spirit of my recent mic pre shoot out) against my studio Focusrite ISA One.The Neve 8801 Channel Strip The 8801 Channel Strip is a complete channel from the Neve 88R console – often considered a great sounding analogue music console. Contained in a single rackmount unit, this unit is completely hand-built and hand-wired by Neve.The 8801’s signal path consists of a Neve mic preamp, high and low pass filters, four bands of equalization, a compressor, gate, dynamics side chain and an insert point. The order of the signal path can be easily modified as the producer requires.The filter section and/or the equalization section can even be routed to the dynamics side chain to tailor the dynamics response of any input signal. There is even a USB socket to store the controls for recall. Funky, flexible and fully buttoned then!The Focusrite ISA OneThe ISA One is a single channel, variable impedance Mic Pre-Amp (and Headphone Amp) and DI. It is my studio standard and based upon the legendary Focusrite ConsoleThe Pre Amp TestI recorded Richard Orford (thank you for your kind help) with an AKG 414I had the ISA One input impedance on the standard ISA 110 setting. All EQ and dynamics on the Neve were in bypass. No  plug-ins were used on the recording and both recordings were loudness measured to within 0.5 LUFS with Nugen VisLM metering.Listening ResultsFor some fun I have made it a blind listening test, results to be revealed soon.Please have a listen and vote for your favourite and leave some comments.  Which Pre Amp Do You Prefer Have a listen to my other mic pre-amp shoot out here

  • How To Change The Fan In Your AVID 192, 92 or HD I/O
    We have talked a great deal of late about reducing the background noise in our own studios. To that end I decided to take on 3 of the loudest units in my studio, my Avid HD I/O, my 192 and 96 I/O.  WarningWords of warning. If you are not happy using tools or getting up close and personal with cables and the like do not start this project. Also if your units are new and still under warranty opening them up and messing with the power supply will make these warranties null and void. You have been warned. The plus side is that doing this will get rid of some of that frustrating background noise. The results are amazing.I used only 4 tools for this job. A small and micro sized Philips screw driver. A small pair of pliers and a small blunt tipped tool. These are available in most PC tools kits. Taking Apart The InterfaceFirst remove the 15-20 small black screws that secure the top part of the case. It is a good idea to keep these in a small pot as they do have a habit of rolling away. With all of these removed the lid can be lifted away.Then remove the 3 black screws that hold the screen of the PSU to the outside case. These screws are the same size as the lid screws.Moving to the inside of the unit, undo the 3 silver screws that hold the other side of the PSU screen. This will allow the PSU screen to be lifted away. Care should be taken as with 192 and 96 units the screen has items of the PSU mounted to it so do not pull this completely away from the rest of the unit. You can see here the lid or screen of the PSU lifted up.What you can see here is the connection the fan makes to the PSU. This is the connector with the Black and Red cables. On the HDI/O the connector is mounted to the front panel but it is easy to fine. Unclip this and gently ease the cables and clip out of the unit. Take care not to be to rough with this.Now undo the 4 screws that hold the fan in place and gently lift the fan out of the unit. Keep this fan as you need to remove the clip from the back and red cables. Grip the black cable close to the clip with the small pliers then pull firmly and evenly to remove the cable from the clip. It should keep the grip on the end so you can use the clip with the NEW fan.  See below. Repeat this for the red cable.Installing The New FanI chose a Noctua fan to replace the old one. These are available from many of the normal online hi tech outlets.This unit is an NF-R8 which is great for low acoustic noise and is rated at 1.3…

  • Zynaptiq Release UnChirp So You Can Remove The Birdies
    Our friends Zynaptiq have released UnChirp  It is an audio-plugin that they claim removes artifacts caused by lossy audio encoding & other FFT processes, like spectral denoising. They say that you can reduce musical noise and high frequency chirping (a.k.a. “underwater sound” or “warbling”) and restore lost transients & treble.If you need to salvage poorly encoded music, speech that’s gone through a low bit rate uplink, over-denoised audio, or footage recorded with consumer mobile devices? then you might want to check out UnChirp.They recommend that you enjoy this video in HD - They show some interesting before and after examples that suggest you should listen to in quality and not listened to in lower resolutions as those would have new lossy encoding applied and you could be back to square one.Try It Before You Buy ItThere is a demo version available from their Downloads page. if you like it then the price is $399 and you can buy it from their store.Zap It With The New Zynaptiq ZAP BundleZynaptiq have also announced their ZAP Bundle which is made up of UnFilter, UnVeil, PitchMap and UnChirp. You can buy the ZAP Bundle for $1099. If you already some of the Zynaptiq plug-ins then you can upgrade for the difference in the purchase price.

  • POST EDL: Tip 6 - Promo Mixing & Inflators
    When mixing promos, often people add inflators (like the nice Sonnox one that I use and reccomend) to the mix bus. Don’t!It is far better to add the inflator to the dialogue to get that “louder/punchier/warmer (insert adjective to fit)”, and then you can get the music/fx balance up much tighter underneath - resulting in a much better mix balance (where not just everything is louder).Use your weapons in the smart way - not the obvious way.The Sonnox InflatorThere are some excellent videos on the Sonnox web, here is one on the Sonnox Inflator

  • AIR Announce New Riser Synth Plug-in With Special 48 Hour Sneak Peak Free Demo Download
    AIR Music Technology introduces The Riser, an all-new synthesizer for creating powerful transitions. Created with electronic dance music producers and DJs in mind, The Riser infuses tracks with progression and hype brimming with AIR’s signature sound quality. What Is The Riser Synth Plug-in?At the heart of The Riser are three editable sound generators – sweep, noise, and chord – letting the user manipulate the movement, timber, and tonality of the transition. Three low-frequency oscillators (LFOs) provide modulation duties to each patch, including beat-synced movements and the “Pumper” effect – a modern pulsating effect used to modify dynamics. Reverb, delay, and mixer controls let the user shape transition volume, effect saturation, and stereo imaging. Users may draw transitions from scratch, or, edit 300 presets spanning rises, falls, swells, fades, and more.Why Was The Riser Plug-in Created?“We understand the science behind the suspense and emotion that a great transition delivers,” noted Ben Wendelstein, AIR Music Tech Product Manager, “Until now, recreating the transition in your head has been a convoluted, manual process. The Riser puts intuitive sound-shaping tools right where you need them so you can design effects that keep the listener on the edge of their seat.”  The Riser Highlights:Transition designer optimized for electronic music production3 editable oscillators;sweep, noise, and chord3 LFOs; free-running, tempo-synced, and PumperPumper effect creates pulsating movement based on native DAW tempoConfigurable delay and reverb with wet/dry processingAdjustable panning movements and master stereo width controlAU, VST, AAX; 32- and 64-bit; Mac or Windows15 Day Pre-Release Trial Of The Riser Plug-inGet a full-version, 15-day trial of The Riser as a free download for a limited period of 48 hours here.The AIR Riser Plug-in Price And Shipping DateThe Riser will be available for purchase on September 1st, 2014 with a price of $79.99 USD.

  • Audio Post Production Workflows Using Pro Tools - Part 9
    Last week in part 8 of this series on Audio Post Production Workflows Using Pro Tools, we started looking at foley and Barnaby Symth shared some of his experience and this week Barnaby continues The Art Of Foley….Foley - The Recording ProcessMoves are usually performed first so the artist can get the feel of the scene. For example, the footsteps are all about walking on the spot with the right energy and feeling. Finding a range of good sounding shoes that work with different surfaces is the key. Usually old and worn in! Then it is about perfecting the technique of rolling the foot to create the illusion of forward movement, whilst going nowhere! The spot effects are then layered on top.Cellophane is used for fire crackleLeaves and shrubs can be created with camo netting, usually augmented with real foliage.Bird flaps can be achieved with gloves combined with real bird feathers.Snow footsteps are a combination of corn flour and dishwasher salt.White cabbages and water melons are used to help punches and blood and guts respectively.On ‘Alien vs Predator’ we made a series of wild track recordings (not to picture) for the movement of the alien creatures and the face suckers. We used over boiled pasta, cream, hair gel, swarfiga and diced raw meat to create an array of gloopy and gooey body movement sounds.The picture below shows me just having smashed apart an array of wooden crates, orange boxes and furniture for the sound of a house being destroyed. Tiring work!Location FoleyIn recent years I have done a lot of recordings on location. Mainly footsteps. I use a stately home near London, which has a number of different sized wooden floored rooms, each with a distinct natural reverb.If the schedule and budget allows it, I often double track these recordings with studio footsteps. The location gives the natural authentic ambience, whilst the studio adds a little body and closer presence, often lost on location. We normally cover a few spot effects too, for example doors and windows, creaks, chairs etc.Mic Placements in FoleyTo achieve believable interior and exterior ambiences, relatively simple techniques are employed.For interior scenes the mic is pulled back from the subject to add the sense of ‘room’ to the recordings. Sometimes a secondary ambient mic placed at distance can be mixed in to add depth of field to the recordings, for instance as the subject walks off screen or to the back of shot.Compression is used to deal with…
