Hi all! We have a home studio, accoustically treated, on a quiet location, but it is not completely soundisolated. We are living in thailand, and sounds from birds and sometimes roosters do go through the walls. Also scooters are sometimes audible on far distance. We are now going to record some ADR and my questions are. 1. If The room is accoustically treated so that there is no reverb, will The occasional sounds from roosters/birds on far distance be a problem considering adding reverb to The dialouge tracks later on? Worth mentioning is that The scenes takes place outside, near djungle and beach, so we will have to add backgroundsound from ocean, birds, crickets, etc, later. Question 2: We do not own The house where our studio is so we cannot build anything or damage walls, Doors or windows. Have anyone successfully soundisolated windows and Doors without building/gluing/causing damage? In that case, how? Thank you!
Depending on how discerning your ears are, and how good your technique is, you may or may not be happy with recording in a studio. It certainly can be tried, but your local exterior noises will be what they will be.
Can you return to the location you shot the original footage and record ADR there using the same mic and micing techniques?
Ty's suggestions are excellent. If you can't record ADR at the location, do you have room tone - just the sound of the location without dialogue? If so, adding that under the ADR wou;;d be a first step. The you can decide how well the ADR matches the original. You can also try Match EQ which is an effect included with many NLEs. If you don't have clear location sound, can you get it? Sorry I'm late to this thread. But, maybe this would help.
