I'm currently doing a dialogue edit for a film, and there's a substantial amount of voice over. Knowing the studio where the recording was to take place well, I asked the recording engineer to be very careful with mic choice, placement and general position of talent within the booth to eliminate the horrible room reflections the studio is known for. Unfortunately... the recordings arrived today, and all I hear is that damn room.
The narrator is male, fairly deep voice, with nice character. But he sounds like he's speaking inside a box. I've done some eq to highlight his tone, but can't seem to get rid of the room altogether.
There's no possibility of re-recording at this time.
Anybody have any success with this problem before? I usually do my own voice over recordings, so I haven't run into this problem a lot.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
