Factory Underground Studio ADR (Automated Dialogue Replacement) and Post-Sync Production Services

Did you know that Factory Underground is now providing ADR (Automated Dialogue Replacement) and a full menu of Post-Sync Production services for the film, video and advertising industries?

We can record a voice-over Actor (VO), Musician, or Journalist remotely using a number of very flexible solutions that provide high-quality connectivity for overdubbing in perfect sync, as well as simultaneous recording of both sides for interviews.

As much as you prepare for your film project, things aren’t always perfect the first time around. The scene is going flawlessly, until a dog barks through a key piece of dialogue. Or an AC unit kicks on. Or maybe it’s the wind. Whatever the intrusion, the audio isn’t as crystal clear as you need it to be. Automatic Dialogue Replacement can help.

ADR is the process of re-recording production dialogue. During an ADR session the actor will view the scene while re-recording the take to match with the existing film. What you get is perfectly crisp audio, and a final product that is better than you could have hoped.

Factory Underground Studio offers state of the art digital recording on Apple Logic or Avid Pro-Tools, with an extensive array of top-quality large diaphragm studio condenser microphones, and analog microphone preamps including Neve, Avalon, Universal Audio, API and more.

The ADR process may be used to:

  • change the original lines recorded on set to clarify context;

  • improve diction or correct an accent;

  • improve comedic timing or dramatic timing;

  • correct technical issues with synchronization;

  • use a studio-quality singing performance or provide a voice-double for actors who are poor vocalists;

  • add or remove content for legal purposes (such as removing an unauthorized trademarked name);

  • add or remove a product placement;

  • correct a misspoken line not caught during filming;

  • remove extraneous sounds such as production equipment noise, traffic, wind, or other undesirable sounds from the environment.

Factory Underground now offers the Highest Quality Plug In Applications for reducing background noise (Denoising) on film projects (ie background noise behind spoken dialogue) including iZotope RX2, Wave Arts’ MR Noise, the Sonnox Oxford DeNoiser. When you love the dialogue you recorded, but hate the noise, give us a call - you'll be amazed.
