This could be a bit subjective, but I think broadly most people know what "cinematic sound" means. At least, in my mind, it is sound that:
- Has extraordinary depth
- Quite a bit of warmth
- Richness and layers
and to feel it, even a half-decent headphone is just about enough to "feel" the sound. It is a sound you automatically associate with sounds that you hear in what used to be called "large hall, big screen cinemas", since about two decades back that's pretty much where one could hear such sounds.
My question, is it possible to create such sounds for voice-over with "home brew" documentaries or pod-casts ? With "home brew", I'd mean equipment you might find in a typical home-studio, that is far from being top-of-the-line. Just some entry-level mid-sized diaphragm microphones (that pretend to be large diaphragm), with something like PreSonus iTwo or Focusrite Scarlette type of digital interfaces, in a partially acoustically-treated (DIY) home-studio.
And if so, what are the techniques (recording), effects (during post-processing) and mixing that may be used to have such effects.
