Where will VO go from here?
« on: August 29, 2012, 06:36:53 AM »
If I remember correctly Dave mentioned something in the Resonance commentary how he will change the VO equipment for next game, would be curious to know more about that.

I think the problem he mentioned was so that the actors could occasionally raise their voice into the mic without cap, not sure how he plans to fix that.

Personally I found that I had to turn off my sub-woofer when playing Resonance, because every time someone said a word with the letter 'p' my sub really popped, but looking at the youtube VO clip it looks like they are using a high quality metal pop-filter so I'm not sure why it's doing that.
Perhaps pro audio-guys has that problem too only they cut away the low-end, idunno..

Anyway reason I'm wondering is because I'm tempted to get a Blue Yeti myself.

I'm not planning on getting new equipment exactly. Just improve my methods. For Primordia, we've got a professional sound guy processing everything so it sounds much nicer than it usually does. As for the Blue Yeti, it's fantastic. :)

aha! thanks.

I didn't know there was THAT much you could really do with a VO after it's already been recorded, shows what I know! ;)
