View Full Version : Making voices echo
06-22-2004, 10:12 PM
Is there a think I can use to make voices echo? I want to make a radio play, but I don't know if I'm supposed to do the echo effects myself, or if I ask the VA's to do it.

If you are even considering making a radio play, you should have the relevant programs for mixing it first, and know how to use them.
The programs most people use are goldwave or cool edit, both of which have functions you can use to add echos (even I can do it!). But then if you are making a radio play, adding echoes is the least of your worries! That is the easy part. Incidently, the person mixing the radio play should add the echo, it is their responsibility, not the actors. There are a bazzilion different types of echo, you may not like the one they picked, it is just easier to have the unmixed version of the line so you can edit it as you will.
I am sure that Blue or Azure have some sort of guide to mixing radioplays or for using Cool Edit/Goldwave, perhaps you could consult that?
I don't mean to rain on your parade before you have even started, but mixing radioplays is not easy and so many people start with the best of intentions, but find they lack the skills or motivation to finish what they start. I know because I am one of them! There is nothing worse than having a great Idea in your head that you want to turn into an RP, but not having the mixing skills to do your idea justice.
Good luck anyway though. There are lots of people on the board to help you out!

I'm teaming up with one of my friends who has a mixer, and we have our own production company now called Twilight Productions. I tend to persue what I want, so I'm not worried. ^_^ *pulls out umbrella* Let the parade continue! ^_^ *hyper because I'm watching the 2nd volume of Azumanga Daioh right now, and it's maknig me hyper.*

Special effects like schoe are done via filters it's up to you how you run it so you can ask VAs to do it themselves but it's better if the mixer does it. You may have to change the ammount of the effect to clearly hear it over music or sound effects.
