You're right - it does sound a bit metallic in sections. I'm not sure where the reverberation came from - there doesn't seem to be as much on the file I posted up. Did you add that?

I'll try adding an atmos track and syncing it to pictures tonight and see how it goes...

Thanks so much for your time! It's much appreciated!

Chris!

Hi Chris,

I've done quite a bit of ADR (as an actor) and they always have us watch and listen to the original in order to match the performance. There's a specialized overlay on the video that gives the actor a visual cue on when to start speaking. I'm guessing you won't be able to replicate that, but I've always found it useful to see and hear what I did on the day.

For ambience, why not record a background roomtone in another location that fits but isn't as noisy? Something that could work for an ice cream shop, but without the fridges. A small restaurant maybe?

And I would try to do the ADR in a garage or whatever as suggested, especially if you don't have the resources to try and tweak the studio sound into something more natural.

Good luck...

Hi Chris

No - I didn't add any reverb to the clip - can only assume it was there under the fridges! I just did the NR fairly quickly, but fine tuning the noise sample should yield a better result.

How much soundtrack do you have that's bad?
