How to reduce echo - recerb from an indoor shot.

Postby jor3l72 on 04/15/2011, 12:42 pm

Hello,
I would like to know if there is a sound pluging that can take out the echo or the reverb of sound that was shot indoor. In a few words I want to make an indor video and sound recording sound like an outdoor one.
I am not interested in finding out how can I shoot so I don't get too much ecjo in the first place. I know that... blunkets on the walls and materials that do not reflect sound.
I am only interested in how can it be fixed through the computer. I am sure it can be done.
I ve seen movies that ar been shot in green screen studios and the sound is perfect althoufh the studio is indoor.

Thanks.

Sorry, I'm afraid not. The reverberation from one sound tailing away will mix with the beginning of a new one. The only way to do it is either use drapes, carpet and soft furnishings to dampen the sound, or else re-record your dialogue (known as 'looping'), and add ambient sound effects such as distant traffic, birds etc. A great deal of movies are looped in post. I heard it said 90% of 'Godzilla' was looped due to the rain which obliterated the original soundtrack.

There's a plugin from a company called SPL named 'transient designer' that might help in your situation..... though as posted above there isn't much you can do to remove reverb from a recording.

Simple answer is, it can't be done. Not if you want it to sound natural anyway.

I would overdub the audio. Or if you can't then learn to live with it. Sound recorded on a shoot is never going to be perfect which is why movies use overdubbing most of the time.

With the time , effort and final result its better to just over dub as cho-drummer has suggested however :o I have done it before for a sample I used in one of my tracks and it sounded ok :?

Set up an audio gate combined with EQ and a multiband compressor and it might work for you, then again I had an individual sound to play with, i'm guessing yours is everything in a single file in which case that would be near on impossible. :x
