Lyrebird.ai is a Canadian company doing AI creation of new speech from sample recordings. They have an online demo, where you record a minimum of one minute (they guide you through sentences, so the samples have a key), it runs the samples through a neural net, and then it'll create your voice saying anything you type. Pros: almost real-time, with a web interface. Cons: still somewhat artificial sounding, but a lot better than previous while-you-wait examples. ... and this is just a first-gen beta demo, with a really small training set and no ability to tweak the results. The company isn't posting anything about their technique, so I'm just guessing (from the operation and from the principals' bios) that it's NN. They seem to be interested in selling their sdk to other developers, rather than offering a service to filmmakers... but that's also just a guess.
Hello one and all, I recently saw the movie Mud. I found it quite enjoyable on many levels. Good story, great acting - particularly notable kid actors, a soundtrack that perfectly fit the vibe. As a movie it is a great blend of Mark Twain and Stand By Me. I was struck by how good the dialog sounded. And there were many difficult scenes: on small boats with engines running, actors in trees, around lots of water, or any number of situations like that. Best I can tell via IMDB the production sound mixer was Ethan Andrus. Anyone know much about the onset work? How much ADR? Lots of wires or multiple booms? Just curious. Cheers, Sam
So I have a feature that has a fair bit of outdoor shots that were filmed on location at a catholic school on E Colorado with traffic driving by. They won't ADR so I'm going to try and do a little multiband expansion to tame that noisy beast. i also have run rx2 on a few of the noisiest sections to try to at least get the noise floor to match a little betters making other fades between cuts a little more seamless. Now I've never really used waves c4 so I'd appreciate some general tips you guys have for me. Tell me how you like to use this tool?
Do you guys have any favorite Altiverb tweaks you do in the dialog mix? I've been working on this feature and use it quite a big to help get the dialog cuts to blend better as well as giving it a better, more cinematic feel within the room. But I always wonder if there's something I could be doing to help make it even better so I thought I'd ask people smarter than me! Thanks for any advice you can share! John
