I have an idea and I wanted to see if it has been done before or if it's worthless to try:
What if I recorded an actor at 192K and dropped than into a 96K session so it's pitched down naturally (varispeeded, essentially) and had the actor speak twice as fast so it doesn't sound slow when it's pitched but sounds like a natural pacing.
Has anyone tried doing this with a real project? Was it successful?
I've only done it at 104% on the Big Ben for some larger alien-type voices for a film I ADRed.
Would it be ridiculous if I asked the director to try this method out with an actor? Thanks for your replies.
