Waves Post Production

November 13, 2009 5 comments

Waves has been a big-name for audio processing plugin for years. Their plugins are widely used in music production, and also in audio post-production. Waves has just released 2 new plugins designed for post production in the new series, Waves Post Production. Let’s have a look at these two plugins.

Waves Noise Suppressor and LoAir are interesting for Sound Design. Here’s what Waves said about their 2 new post-production weapons.

WNS Waves Noise Suppressor is a real-time multiband processor for fast and effective broadband noise suppression on dialog tracks.

For years, sound design and post production professionals have been waiting for a subharmonic synthesizer plug-in that delivers the earthshaking sound of hardware. The wait is over. [LoAir]

This is clear for what they can do. What WNS interests me the word “Real-Time”. Normally, noise reduction plugin needs high degree of calculation which comes latency. Waves said WNS use low CPU and zero latency. It must be a very useful plugin when working with on-location dialog.

For LoAir, as Waves said, we’ve been looked for a subharmonic synthesizer for long time. Low-end rumble is always needed in sound design. Personally, I really like the copy writing for LoAir, Get Ready to Rumble. Wil Waves release Michael Buffer Collections soon?

Working with Video in Pro Tools

Working with Video in Pro Tools

I found these articles while googling to find out which video format I should use with Pro Tools. “Working with Video in Pro Tools” is article in Sound on Sound magazine, comprised of 3 parts published in Jan-Feb-Mar 2006 issued.

The first part in Jan 2006 is about video format to use with Pro Tools and how to playback video file in Pro Tools session, together with briefly explanation about OMF. OMF was explained for more detail in the second part of these article in Feb 2006. To import OMF into Pro Tools was explained in this part as well. The last part in March 2006 talked about how to organize audio files in Pro Tools session after OMF importing. Some audio post-production basics were also explained, such as sound effect syncing, M&E tracks and Foley.

Need for Speed ProStreet : E3 2007 Nissan GT-R Proto Trailer
Original VDO : http://www.gametrailers.com/player/21360.html
Created : mid of 2007

I can’t remember when I worked on this video, possibly mid of 2007, before the launch of Need for Speed ProStreet. I’ve been Nissan fan for a while. This trailer interested me because of Nissan GTR but the soundtrack was not that interesting. So I decided to start the makeover, though I was not s composer.

I created the new soundtrack on Nuendo3. Drum and bass loops were from Stylus RMX. Some noise was made by freeware, I can’t remember which one, maybe TAL U-NO-60. I recorded 1-chord-riff guitar tracks with Squire Stratocaster direct into computer, NI Guitar Rig was used as guitar amp.

Transformers and Media Composer – Transforming editors into collaborators

This video was made by AVID to show how editors in Transformers 2 work with Avid Media Composer. It has nothing related to sound design, but the video itself is interesting enough to spend 7 minute to watch. For me, it is always interesting seeing how people work at this level of production.

This trailer shows up in Apple Trailer. I’ve never known it before. I download and watch this trailer because its plot is about virtual world. This must be a visual fx showcase. At the moment I see the word “VFX concept text”, the only question came up to my head is …. how should this trailer sound?

Unfortunately, this trailer on Youtube can’t be embeded. Please check it out following the links I provided below. Trust me, it’s worth to watch.
