Evaluation question 6

Voice Over

For the recording of our voice over we employed the help of principal music student Ed Watson as we knew that sound can be a tricky thing to get right and a bad recording could easily lower the quality of our product and make it look amateurish. A high quality condenser microphone was used to avoid background sound being picked up and using a device called an Emu my speech directly onto a computer through the music editing software Cubase. He then added a small amount of reverb and ran it through a virtual compressor with smoothed out my voice and background sounds by reducing the transmission bandwidth of the audio, removing the higher and lower frequencies. It is this kind of affects that along with plush, insulated studio gives radio presenters such as Terry Wogan such silky toned voices.
