Final Cut Pro audio question: reverb

I need to make a voice over sound like it's in an echo-ish hallway (outside), but I'm trying to find a good audio filter in Final Cut Pro 6. Any thoughts?

Thanks,

heath

Soundtrack pro should have what you need. I beleive its called Space Designer in the reverb section of the FX.

Yes, SpaceDesigner should give you great results. Check out the many presets for different types of rooms that it has.

As far as I know, there's nothing built right into Final Cut Pro that can do anything similar. So definitely export your audio to Soundtrack Pro and add the reverb/echo there.

There are many adjustable Reverb filters built right into FCP to give you just what you need.

I used FCP, tweaked it and it worked fine, thanks! I don't use Soundtrack Pro, believe it or not. Mostly because I have friends that do the audio editing for me, separately. I trust the audio experts!

Space Desinger is a superb convolution type reverb plug-in. If you just learn to use one plug-in in STP, that would be one I'd suggest. Those settings are 'sampled' spaces using a process called IR (impulse response), typically created by recording a starter pistol or better yet, a sine wave sweep. The de-convolution process then removes the original impulse, leaving only the response characteristics. This leaves a very realistic sounding reverb when applied to your own audio source.

Thanks for the info, Greg. I got lucky with my film: Douglas Spotted Eagle helped me with some audio clean up. Spot's truly an audio expert!
