Dubbing News

So today I have my voice over director hat on and would like to take a moment to comment on some of the work we have completed this past month.

The English Dubbing for “Dragon Force” the movie went off wonderfully. Everyone did amazing work! Great job guys and gals!

Also – We just finished two films (“Man made of Glass“, “Gold and Earth“) as well as a 14 episode series (“Fall of an Angel“). I’m looking at some of the mixes and they are sounding really nice.

This week we will be jumping into a very cute animated series, which promises to be a lot of fun.

Macau Grand Prix Blast from the past

My wife stumbled across these videos for the Macau tourism board I voiced a while ago, and I thought I’d share them. 🙂

Studio UPGRADE!!!! SSL X-Logic and Apogee Symphony powered!

Wooo hoo! So after a very easy setup and a weeks worth of tweaking we think we’ve got the new setup at Red Angel Studios operating at tip top performance!

Check out the difference between VO recordings on the same microphone from our last system (tascam fw-1800) and our new system (ssl x-logic x-rack w/ apogee symphony i/o) ! Would love to hear feedback!

Cheers,

Microphone Shootout: Royer, Sennheiser Mk4, Rhode NTK

Hi all,

Recently I got the chance to shoot-out three great microphones. My friend, Chris at dmt pro, brought by a Royer mic for a loaner for a week and I figured it would be a great opportunity to test against our other go to mics!  We ran them through our tascam FW-1800 desk.  THough I would love to do the shoot out again when our ssl xrack mic pres get here – and also the apogee symphony … but since we only had the new toy for a week, I figured better try it out!

So to go over the mics again:

The Royer – a ribbon based microphone. Which I found to be very interesting.  I found it to add a smoothness to the voice over that might sound very nice for book reading or other narrations.

The MK4 – which has been a go to mic for me for VO and lip synch dubbing, because of it’s overall good for everything sound.

The Rhode NTK – a nice mic, that I use as a go to mic for VO – when I need a rich – in your face sound / like television commercials.  I really like this mic on male vocals.

Anyhow — here are the wavs and you can hear them for yourself.  🙂  Feel free to comment and I hope you find these useful.
