So this is a question that has been around since the dawn of post production.
How to get the best possible match to surrounding dialogue with ADR. Does anyone have any top secret tips?
Obviously you can buy plugins which analyse the frequencies in the original dialogue and then apply it to your ADR but those cost money!
Do you just play around with channel strip eq until you get something similar?
EQ can only do so much as the performance needs to match; but I can't ever seem to match remotely tricky ones. The standard ADR I can match with slight eq but if I get a tricky section like the actors being in a tiny room, or somewhere not completely standard; then I struggle to know where to begin!
