I listen to some podcasts where the person speaking has a kind of radio DJ sounding audio, a kind of full, bassy sound. Is that only because of the mics they use, or is there an effect I can use in Amadeus to get a similar effect. Thanks.

Most radio/broadcast signals are compressed and eq'd. If you play with compression you can mimic it. You might want to normalize it to -2 to -4 db peak. Thats all doable wihin AP in software.

You also can get a proximity effect by physically working the mic closely. That tends to reinforce the bass in anyone's voice. You would need to achieve that during performance. It is easy to hear if you are monitoring via headphones.

Lastly, there are a few specific mice which tend to reinforce that type of inherent voice print. But, you can get most of the way there by working the mic and then processing.

Jim,

Thanks for the advice. In AP, how to do this specifically, ie which functions/effects to use in the menus? I'm very new to this, so your help appreciated.

Regards

Tony

The Audio Units "Dynamic Processor" is a good compressor.  EQ is just Equalization.  Normalization is also as described.

You can "preview" all effects before you apply them.  It also makes a difference the order in which you apply them.  I would use Normalization last.

You'll have to play around a bit to get exactly what you are hearing.
