Jünger Audio aims for perfect pitch at IBC
At IBC dynamics processing specialist Jünger Audio will show its D*AP4 VAP Voice Processor, a unit that is designed to make life easier for engineers working in radio stations, TV production voice-over studios and feature film ADR facilities.What makes this processor special is the inclusion of Jünger Audio’s proprietary Spectral Signature dynamic EQ – a new creative tool that offers automatic and dynamic EQ control to balance spectral differences in realtime.
By analysing incoming audio and comparing its spectrum with individually predetermined voice ‘fingerprints’, this unit can automatically apply dynamic EQ corrections to give a consistent sound.
For people working in TV voice over and feature film ADR, this facility allows them to deal with any changes in a performer’s voice. For example, if a performer has a sore throat on day three of a recording session and therefore sounds a bit different, this clever unit will look at the tonal characteristics of the actor’s voice on day one and automatically adjusts the frequency until both voices match. This ability to deliver consistent sound means that producers save money and time because they don’t have to cancel voice over or ADR sessions while they wait for an actor’s voice to return to normal.
“The D*AP4 VAP draws on our extensive experience with previous Voice Processing devices such as our popular VO2, but adds new tools and algorithms to create an easier and more efficient approach to voice processing with no compromise in sound quality,” said Peter Pörs, CEO of Jünger Audio. “We have also included processing such as HP/LP filtering, versatile dynamics section, full parametric EQ and de-essing, and made the unit really easy to use – even for non-technical radio staff such as producers and journalists.”
