Dialog editing and ADR

Sometimes when shooting a commercial, documentary or movie, it is impossible to get clean audio for editing/mixing use, because a director wants a shot near a noisy waterfall, subway train or in traffic. ADR is the process of taking original (noisy) field audio and replacing that audio with re-recorded audio from the studio. This is usually done while the actor looks at the original scene with timing beeps to indicate placement. Digital Audio Workstations loop this section over and over, automatically, hence the name. Once recorded, Commercial Sound + Image has a variety of tools to help placement and even lock the new audio against the original, making any replacement nearly impossible to notice.

Our studios were built from the ground up for audio. We have the great sounding sound stages for recording voice and ADR. Because of this, we have worked on many motion pictures with major studios like Disney, Warner Brothers, Nickelodeon and independent films alike.

Digital Patch

There are multiple internet based high quality audio solutions. The advantages that they can be used anywhere there is a high quality internet connection. The disadvantages include dropouts if bandwidth is interrupted anywhere across the internet. There are some excellent sounding solutions such as Source Connect and ipDTL for studio quality audio. With proper implementation these can outperform ISDN quality audio.

Recording, booth

Ultimately sound quality has more to do with the room, microphones and preamps than connection type. Our booth is quiet, comfortable and large enough to have up to 3 talent at once. We also have an excellent selection of high end professional microphones for you to choose from and can do patches with time code for video lock. If you have any questions about digital patch compatibility, give us a call.
