"Hi Al, thanks.

I don't use Normalize now nearly as much as I used to, in fact it's very rare. I find that if I have my levels dialed in correctly on the front end it's much a cleaner sound than using the plug-in. However, for really tight tweaks to…"

  • Hi Eric! So sorry I haven't responded sooner! LIFE! go figure... Anyway, would love to be your friend on Facebook and here too.

    Hope all is well with you!! Write and let me know how you're doing! Denise

  • Eric:

    Thank you for sharing your experiences with Pro Tools Plug-ins for VO. You are spot on about Time Shift. I recently used the Time Shift to tweak a track to get it under 30 sec by 1.5 sec and it was a life saver. I'll need to experiment with the Pitch Shift. Still the best processing is no processing and starting with a great track recording.

    Best,

    Al
  • Hi Al, thanks.

    I don't use Normalize now nearly as much as I used to, in fact it's very rare. I find that if I have my levels dialed in correctly on the front end it's much a cleaner sound than using the plug-in. However, for really tight tweaks to a commercial script that's running "almost" but not quite perfectly to time, I find Time Shift invaluable. With shifts of up to between 5% and 8% there are no discernible artifacts in my recordings, though once it gets up to 10% or more I find it's pretty useless. Likewise, Pitch Shift is awesome for making small tweaks to character voices that help to enhance their differentiation form my normal voice, but as with Time Shift, only within relatively small tolerances - 1 to 2 semitones at the most. They're good tweaks, but certainly no substitute good front-end performance and mic technique.

    Cheers,
    Eric
  • Eric: Thought it would be interesting to collect the top recommended Pro Tools plug-ins used by voiceover home studio users. My list would include: BNR, Normalize, and EQ 3. When you are putting your money where your mouth is, what plug-ins add real value? Share and enjoy! Al
