Microphones, a Love Story

Microphones may be the most important tool we have to help us deliver the perfect audio performance for our TV, film and VO projects. From large diaphragm condensers to shotguns and lavs, we own many of the industry's beloved voiceover microphones and multiple sets of all the coveted live sound mic packages for matching pre-recorded live performances for ADR. I like to match the characteristics and performance capabilities of the mic with the specific source and production goal. For instance, we always match the mic's used in production with the mic's we use on the stage. In addition, we will work with the talent and sound supervisor to catch the pitch, energy, and axis delivery of the source performance, so integration in the final picture is 100% seamless.  If you love microphones and mic history, catch up with me on this topic. I’ll be happy to share my enthusiasm for mic options during your next visit to our dialogue stages in New York City or Los Angeles.   —Mark

Audie Awards Nominee x3!

We are thrilled to have partnered with Audible again this year to produce three Audie-nominated titles: Anne of Green Gables narrated by Rachel McAdams; I Cant’ Make this Up: Life Lessons written and narrated by Kevin Hart; The Handmaid’s Tale, Special Edition, narrated by Claire Danes. We have been honored to work with many amazing narrators over the years. These artists must carry the thread of a story and engage the listener over many hours through dialogue performance alone. Bravo to all the nominees! The Audie Awards will be held on May 31 in New York City.

Security Matters

Recently, we introduced new security measures to protect client assets via high level digital media encryption. Whether working on our ADR or mix stages in LA or New York City, client files can only be played after a 4-layered decryption process on our systems. If you’d like a demonstration or more details about these measures, please contact mark@outloudaudio.com.
